First thing you need to know is that Pikmin are your partners. They grow in the ground and you need to pull them out in order to add them to your ever-growing army. They can also pick up items, fix bridges, destroy walls, and just basically do anything for you.
Pikmin are also your bodyguards, but they can die very, very easily. Watching a Pikmin die is not fun but hey, you’ll get used to it.
And last but not least, there five differeent types of Pikmin. There are Red Pikmin, Blue Pikmin, Yellow Pikmin, Rock Pikmin, and Winged Pikmin. Red can withstand heat, blue can swim, yellow isn’t phased by electricity, rock can easily destroy things when thrown, and winged can fly.
