The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Abduction Den is the twenty-fourth level in Pikmin 2's Challenge Mode. There are quite a few enemies that take Pikmin and leaders in their grasp, hence the name.

Sublevel 1Edit

It would be wise to lure the Greater Spotted Jellyfloat away from the rest to get the key it holds. If one is here for the pink flowers, then nothing else should be done. If a high score is wanted, taking out the Careening Dirigibugs with an ultra-bitter spray is advisable.

One strategy is as follows: The player should take both leaders with no Pikmin, and go over to the Greater Spotted Jellyfloat. One leader should be angled so that the Jellyfloat sucks him up into its body; the other leader should then petrify the creature with the ultra-bitter spray. Then, using the leader that is inside the Jellyfloat, the player should rapidly press the same buttons they would use if they were taken by a Bumbling Snitchbug. The Jellyfloat will break, the leader will escape, and the key will clatter onto the floor. After taking the key, one can collect any other treasures at will, and finally escape.
