Pikmen Strentgh and Weakness
___________________________________________
Red pikmen are the second strongest pikmen and can also attack any fiery monster 
without getting burned and also they can put out flaming guisers but they are 
vulnerable to electricity and water and poison
Yellow pikmen can destroy electric fences and attack any monster that uses 
electricity but are vulnerable to fire and water and poison
Blue pikmen can attack monsters that are in the water but are vulnerable to 
electricity and fire and poison
Purple pikmen can wake a monster good when thrown on top and can also hold down a 
burrowing snagret (that bird/snake monster that comes from the ground) and are the 
strongest pikmen in the game but they are also the slowest pikmen in the game and 
are vulnerable to electricity and water and fire and poison
White pikmen are the weakest pikmen and smallest but they are the fastest and can 
survive poison and destroy poison generaters and can find buryied treasure and dig 
it up but they are vulnerable to fire and water and electricity P.S. they can go 
faster than olimar and loiue

Camera Hints
___________________________________________________
when battling a dwevil always go to a birds eye view and throw pikmen on the top of 
it
when you want to see far swith the camera to a far away distance
when you want to see your area of view more detailed than go to far away view and 
to birds eye view
if you press and hold the R button you will get a third person view of olimar or 
loiue and there pikmen 
when ever you cant seem to tell if somthing like that big web thing is starting to 
appear always go to a close up view for closer inspection or closer view of your 
pikmen beating the heck out of an enemy
when coming to a narrow crossing bridge board ect then always go to close up view 
in birds eye view

Pikmen Hints
____________________________________________________
ever notice those blocks that you need to balance well then first bring your pikmen 
and one purple now toss the purple onto the block that is above you then throw all 
of your other pikmen onto the area your tring to get to then once you have about 9 
8 or 7 pikmen left with you you should go up with the blck and the purple will go 
down with the block

want to carry an item to an onion or your ship faster then white are the best for 
example a 1 pellet is picked up by 2 white pikmen then they will out run you unless 
your whistle is close enough to reach them but a 1 pellet being carried by one 
white pikmen youll be a bit faster

wanna break down that electric fence or that wall then before you send all your 
pikmen on a full pledge attack to break it down give them a super spicy potion and 
they will break that wall down faster than if they were all flower pikmen

Hint in pikmen 2 yellow pikmen CAN'T pick up the bombs that are dropped you run 
away unless you wanna see a pikmen death parade Hahaha heh yeah maybe it isnt 
really funny but still KA-BOOM :P

6TH pikmen Strenght and Weakness
_________________________________________________
yep thats right theirs a 6TH pikmen called a bulbmin its a pikmen parasite that 
infects a red dwarf bulbard it can withstand poison and fire and water and 
electricity very good indeed you can even throw them and they can also help carry 
and they are the 3RD strongest pikmen in the game
Caution: you can only get them from underground and they DON'T come to the surface
___________________________________________________
How To Get The 6TH Pikmen
_________________________________________________
now usually the 6TH pikmen are found following there parent which is a big Bulbmin 
which will try to eat your pikmen kill the big Bulbmin and then call the scattering 
little Bulbmin they will respond and come to your army of pikmen, Bulbmin can be 
either a leaf type or flower type they cannot become a bud type

Hint-n-Tips
_____________________________________________________________
now your probably thinking how can there be more tips well easily 
first off you need to have the red pikmen and purle and white pikmen to get the 
yellow pikmen and you need the yellow pikmen to get the blue pikmen

now to get the red just call them in the first level and have them kill the Red 
Dwarf Bulbard 
to get the purple and white pikmen throw any pikmen color into a plain white or 
plain purple flower five pikmen for flower before the flower withers away

now to get the yellow pikmen have at least 1 purple pikmen with you now in the 
perplexing pool go left and stay on land youll fing 2 blocks first throw your 
purple pikmen onto the block thats above you then throw any other pikmen you have 
to the area that your tring to get to once you have under 10 pikmen in your 
controll (due to throwing to other once to the area your tring to reach) your block 
will go up and the block with the purple pikmen will go down then use red pikmen to 
kill the fiery bulboard protecting the wall then have your white pikmen break down 
the wall and destroy the poison generaters then call the yellowpikmen at the branch 
down to you, hey you now control 4 different colors of pikmin one more to go

to get the blue pikmen you need to be at the Awakening wood level from there gather 
your yellow pikmen and maybe some purple and white (just incase) and head right to 
the area that has the two big flowers ten when you reach an area with a paper bag 
blocking your way have 20 purple pikmen to toss on and on red or yellow or white to 
toss on to flaten the bag then youll see an electric fence at the top of the area 
your tring to get to now toss all your pikmen up there but away from that colored 
thing in the ground then go tward the paper bag you just flattened and to your left 
is some water cross it once you get to the the ground on the other side of the 
puddle call your pikmen to attack the colored thing that is a monster in disguise 
then have your yellow pikmen break down the electric fence then call the blue 
pikmen and ta da you controll all five colored pikmen now congrats you cheerful lil 
kid or teen or adult
