So you mention your blog, which sounds quite intriguing, but you don't have a link to it. I found it on Pikmin Wiki, and I think that it would be a good idea to move it here as a subpage of your profile, or perhaps to Pikmin Fanon since it is technically non-canon, so that we can avoid going to Wikia as much as possible.

Just added them all to my profile page. Thanks for pointing that out. - Scittery Leaves23

I also have comments on a couple of your theories:
  • I believe Pikmin 3 states that PNF-404 is Earth 10 million years in the future, so it's likely that regular evolution allowed Spider Beetles to turn into the Arachnorbs.
  • The Bulborbs are all different species to the Empress Bulblax, so it's unlikely that they're "free" females of the colony.

To provide comments on your comments:

  • While I'm not sure if I recall Pikmin 3 saying that it's 10 million years in the future, I'll take your word for it. Even so, regular evolution based on mutations to genes would be over the course of time would probably not be able to bring a spider beetle to an Arachnorb, simply because, looking at real-life evolution, it is difficult for mutations to actually eliminate body parts. While it could lead to the great size we see in Arachnorbs, it would likely not be able to completely get rid of, as I think I noted in the post, two legs, the wings, the antennae, and the eyes. If evolution did occur normally, these parts would likely end up as vestigial structures, body parts that lose their initial function as evolution takes place, like the appendix on humans. So the Beady Long Legs, for example, would have wings made useless because of its new size and shape, or antennae unable to feel anything, or at the very least, evidence of these structures once existing.
  • You raise an interesting point here. Olimar notes that "the egg sac of the largest female grub-dog within a given range swells to dramatic proportions in response to environmental changes", so we know that it starts off as a normal grub-dog, and henceforth, the other females of the species look very similar to Bulborbs. Also, since Olimar refers to the family, not the exact species, the same could be true for all grub-dogs, Red Bulborbs included. Or it could just be an oversight, since, at the same time, Bulborb Larva aren't the same species as Empress Bulblax, which makes... no sense.
