(now this last way is the hardest so im gonna give you a little help first find a fairly small puddle of water then have louie go to the end of the puddle by HIMSELF and have olimar controlling all the red pikmen throw the red pikmen into the puddle then switch back to louie and have him call the pikmen to him, you cant use blue, white, purple, or yellow. good luck) to be demoted from a pikmen master to a stratigic player you must have of lost 50 pikmen or more in one battle/or purposely let more than 15 of you pikmen die, to be demoted from a pikmen master to a begginer you must have of let an enemy obliterate no more than 100 pikmen (or let it obliterate all your pikmen at once)and no less than 50/or purposely killed 30 or more of your pikmen, to be demoted from a stratigic player to a begginer you must have of lost 45 pikmen from one battle or purposely killed 5 of your pikmen. ________________________________________________________ First Faq Explaination _____________________________________________________ now my first faq was for begginers and also had some stratigic info in it from time to time but still any one who was dissapointed okay fine with me its not perfect so what who cares but ill be explaining a bit more in this faq so my last faq didnt tell you everything. also in the first faq the poison generaters are really gas pipes and the poison is still poison and can also be refered to as gas. __________________________________________________________ Second Faq Rank 2 Help and Hints N Tips For Level 2 Rank Players _____________________________________________________________ alright now after doing more under ground exploring i finnaly muster up enough bravery to go to the Citadel Of Spiders under ground area and find out that its no bi deal down there sort of easy but anyway theres a very special item down here but im not saying but i will explain how to go thruogh the levels. ok on sublevel 1 you have a love nugget treasure it takes 20 pikmen to carry and is worth 40 pokos and the enemys are 5 shearwigs and 5 skitter leafs and eggs with necter in them sublevel 2 has these treasures: creative inspiration worth 100 pokos and only needs 4 pikmen to carry it,lip service (on top of a fiery dweevil)is worth 50 pokos and needs 7 pikmen to carry it, paradoxical enigma is worth 80 pokos and needs 4 pikmen to carry it,enemys are 2 yellow wollywogs and 3 fiery dweevils, hazards are 5 fire geysers,items are some eggs with necter and a vilot candypop bud sublevel 3 has a patience tester worth 130 pokos and requires 20 pikmen to carry it and a memorial shell worth 100 pokos and needs 10 pikmen to carry it,enemys are 3 swooping snitchbugs and 8 anode bettles, items are some eggs with necter and a queen candypop bud (not telling what it is go down the level and find out yourself) sublevel 4 has a king of sweets worth 15 pokos (still good) and needs 5 pikmen to carry it a flame of tomorrow worth 10 pokos (still good) and needs 10 pikmen to carry it (10 pokos and 10 pikmen strange)and a time capsule worth 70 pokos and needs only 7 pikmen to carry it (7 pikmen 70 pokos wierd), enemys are 2 hermit crawmads and 3 water dumples, hazards are 5 fire geysers, items are eggs with necter and an ivory candypop bud. sublevel 5 has a buried regal diamond worth 100 pokos and only needs five pikmen to carry and also theres a second treasure but youll need to find out that one after you beat the boss,enemys are a iridescent flint beetle and the boss is a beaty long legs BOSS:Beaty Long Legs STRATEGY:Go into a birds eye view when it comes down kepp your pikmen away from its feet and when the sphere shaped body of it comes downward throw your pikmen onto it repeat this and you should beat it as long as you dont bring the beetle out it lures your pikmen near the feet to get stompted on any way you should use mostly yellow pikmen because they can be thrown high enough to reach the body even when it isnt bending down ward well now that thats down now the other thing is that fiery bulbords are weak in fire because they arent on fire in the water but even though they maybe open to and attack by blue pikmen right when it gets on land it will ignite and burn any pikmen that touch it except red now a way to stop this disadvantage s to first lure it into the water then while it IS IN THE WATER spray it with an ultra bitter potion to freeze it and kill it it will turn into dust but leave behind a full portion of ultra bitter spray and also give you a treasure if you killed the one on the valley of repose. another big enemy is the burrowing snagret which can burrow into the ground or pop up from the ground and eat 7 of your pikmin at once now the strategy to beat this enemy is when it starts to come out of the ground it will try sometimes be temperarrely stuck for 2 or 3 seconds giving you the right time the swarm your pikmen around its head to get in some good damage and sometimes the purple pikmen can hold it down a second longer or go for massive damage to it by throwing a purple pikmen on its head when its temporarally stuck. Now in the hole of beasts and im not going through the levels is a big bad D*** huge Bulblax that is called the empress bulblax now i hae a strategy that almost worked but still failed due to poor timing first when you find the big girl (yes it is a girl and im not being offensive but its name says EMPRESS bulblax)shell be sleeping in a U or C shape either way first attack the inside of the curled shape bulblax and right when it wakes up call your pikmen to get the h*** away from it cause that bulblax once obliterated all 100 of my pikmen in one shoot ( 3( ) so now when it rolls over (and hopefully misses every pikmen) start throwing your pikmen on it then be sure to call them back when it starts to flail a bit so that your pikmen arent knocked near the middle of the bulblax (the one area your pikmen dont wanna be)now keep this up and once you beat the empress bulblax youll get the treasure called prototype detector which is worth 200 pokos (JACKPOT) and needs 35 pikmen to carry it once you get that treasure youll recieve a treasure guage on your screen and when the gauge needle starts to point toward the greenish blue part it means that your getting closer to some treasure. ___________________________________________________________________ Potion Advantages And Disadvantages __________________________________________________________ now the advantage with the ultra spicey potion is that it makes your pikmen faster and stronger but this has happened to me countless times when i use the ultra spicey potion i start to get carried away and attack big enemys that are very dangerous then while the enemy is being attacked the potion wares off and my pikmen become food. now the advantage with the ultra bitter potion is that it temporarrally stuns an enemy but it also only stuns the enemy for 5 seconds that maybe plenty of time but it doesnt prove great cause when the enemy is unstuned and lost alot of help it will be EXTREMELY MAD and will do anything it can to knock your pikmen down PERMENANTLY so becarefull. ________________________________________________________________ Rader Help __________________________________________________________ now when you pause you see a rader of your level that your on and now if you dont take time to read the instruction booklet then you might not understand the rader so here is the Radar Key Red Triangle is captain olimar Blue Triangle is louie Red Dot is red pikmen Blue Dot is blue pikmen Yellow Dot is yellow pikmen Purple Dot is purple pikmen White Dot is white pikmen Pink Dot is a Bulbmin white picture with purple in middle is ship Red,Blue,Yellow Dos with 3 lines are Red,Blue,Yellow, onions a big yellow hole shape is an underground entrance a big yellow hole shape with a Red Flag is a completed (all treasure collected) underground Underground Red cone with yellow lines on top is research pod Yellow hole is another hole leading deeper down Blue Dot with four curved lines coming out is a geyser that brings you to the surface Olimar,Louie and the piken dots are all the same Green Dot is a buried pikmen to move around the rader use the Analog-Stick and to zoom in and out use the C- Stick. ___________________________________________________________________________________ New Discoverys __________________________________________________________________ the new discoverys that i found out will be mentioned later on but they are how to unlock challenge mode, special contents (from the tableof contents), a new move and also the white pikmens OTHER ability __________________________________________________________________ Q and A From Cheatcode Members ___________________________________________________________ Until further notice there have been no questions to anwser This Section Coming Soon (I Hope) ___________________________________________________________________ Special Strategys ____________________________________________________________ now say there are some fire geysers and you are under ground with no red pikmen but some other colored pikmen what would you do? A. try to get around it with no hazard B.just give up and leave then come again with more red pikmen C.when the fire geyser isnt spewing fire attack it then call back your pikmen before it spews fire again tick tock tick tock times up C. is the correct anwser dont try to get around the hazard you wont be able to bring treasure back, dont leave to get red pikmen giving up all the pokos and treasure you have,just count how long the geyser stops spewing fire until it starts to spew fire again double check the time then when you have the right time right when it stops spewing fire attack it then call your pikmen back before it spews fire again (just to add in the last faq i said Bulbmin could withstand fire well i dont have any real proof yet so if anyone wants to sacrifice a bulbmin to say then go ahead)repeat the process to destroy the geyser. now say you have now white pikmen or bulbmin with you and you come to a gas pipe what do you do? A.search the underground until you find some bulbmin B.throw your pikmen over the gas pipes C.all of the above tick tock tick tock times up C. is the correct anwser since this isnt a wall with gas suronding it but just some gas pipes you can take the time to search for some Bulbmin,if you dont find any bulbmin then just seperate olimar and louie, louie on the other side of the the gas and olimar throwing pikmen by pikmen over to louie this does work i have been forced to do it many times but a caution is that you must be in the exzact spot to have your pikmen make the throw all the way over unharmed and if they are harmed by the gas have louie call the pikmen over then repeat the process. now electricity is a hazard not to take chances with cause one touch of electricity on non-yellow pikmen results in an INSTANT DEATH. how to cross water with no blues i explained in the promotion demotion area. Top of Faq below the end of the promotion part in parenthesis More To Come _________________________________________________________________ Special Hints _____________________________________________________________ My only Special hint is that this game is really gonna make you have to think so be a good thinker with this game ___________________________________________________________________ Special Tips ____________________________________________________________________ never ever say that a treasure worth 10 pokos is usless cause you would be saying the any thing that isnt more than 11 pokos is useless meaning enemys and pellets are worthless remember 10,000 pokos is alot every poko counts!!! ________________________________________________________________________ Special Items ______________________________________________________________________ one is the five man nap sack which allows your current leader to go to sleep by pressing and holding the X button and any pikmen near you will pick you up and bring you to there color onion if white or purple rarly your ship or any color onion. prototype detector gives you a treasure gauge with a needle that goes closer and closer to the greenish blue part of the gauge meaning the closer you are to treasure the closer the needle is to the greenish blue part of the gauge. the key you get it from destroying the beady long legs it does somthing special for you. I'll tell you further on in the faq :P ___________________________________________________________________________ How To Unlock Challenge Mode _________________________________________________________________ Well i finnaly get to stop torchering you with the key treasure what it does is unlockes the challenge mode for you, i liked tormenting you with the KEY ITEM too well on with the faq ;) ____________________________________________________________________ White Pikmen Other Ability (Was Hard To Find Out!!!) __________________________________________________________________ well white pikmen can hurt enemys that eat them and can withstand gas and destroy gas pipes, but white pikmen can also be thrown farther than yellow pikmen but not by alot but they cant be thrown as high though. so good luck finding this out cause it was really hard to do and im not telling how to throw white pikmen that far unless emailed asking me. ____________________________________________________________ Big Enemy Alerts ________________________________________________________ All have been mentioned in this faq but in the third faq i will say for the enemys that havent been mentioned. Sorry for this section but there isnt anything here so on with the faq _______________________________________________________________________ Faq Rules __________________________________________________________ The rules are the same as before only if a question is emailed that i cannot anwser i shall say so that i havent found out that YET and will research it when i get the chance. Good Luck You Pikmen Fans Out There :P Until Next Time Happy Gaming :P
