At least from what I've seen from music tracks on YouTube, I noticed how the names of locations are similar to previous ones. You've got the Garden (Forest) of Hope, Distant Tundra (Spring), Tropical (Wistful) Wilds, and others as well I'd imagine.

I've been trying to finish mine, but I'm trying to get the game done in as little days as possible, and I cannot seem to get Perplexing Pool done in two days. It's always SO annoying when there are like two above ground treasures left and THAT'S IT! I found out a few tips to help me along, so maybe I can figure it out tomorrow. And no, there's no way I'm going for the 7 day run. Too much for me.

EDIT: POST 1000!

Darn it I wanted to have the 1000th post! Aw well, this is still a special occasion since this is the longest ongoing thread I've made.

Anyway, I also try to complete P2 in the fewest number of days, but no matter how many times I try I can never get below 12. I was close to 11 this last playthough by doing everything at the Valley of Repose in one day (not counting the obligatory first two that you spend there), but the stupid Unspeakable Wonder (the Peach's crown treasure) got stuck on the snowman's head and I wasted all my remaining time try to get it out.

AH HA! I DID IT! I feel so accomplished now, especially since it took like 25 tries. XD Apparently there's a glitch with the Gherkin Gate as well...if it goes off-screen before reaching the bottom of the slope, it slides down real fast and gets stuck. It killed my run a few times.

What always gets me at the Valley of Repose is that Fiery Bulblax. Those things are always a pain. I mean who uses Red Pikmin anyway? Funny thing about that, it's actually possible to beat Pikmin 2 without using Red Pikmin (except of course the first two days when that's your only Pikmin). Everything that's fire is actually beatable by slamming Purple Pikmin onto it.

Is it just me, or do Winged Pikmin look slightly similar to the Chao from Sonic?

You used reds for the fiery bulblax in Valley of Repose? I usually just lure it into the water and use blues
Now that I think about it...you really don't need reds, huh? They ARE stronger though, so I usually favor them over other Pikmin types
But don't you HAVE to use reds for the fiery bulblax in the Perplexing Pool? I can't think of another way you can beat it unless you burn your Pikmin!

Well I meant like, Fiery Bulblaxes in general.

And two things about the fiery bulblax in perplexing pool. First off, you don't NEED to kill it (but there are Fiery Bulblaxes in Wistful Wild caves you do need to), and second, you can kill it with purples! When you throw a purple, if it doesn't hit anything once it reaches it's highest point, it will proceed to do a butt-slam of sorts. This "slam" does immediate damage to enemies, regardless of what happens afterward (except maybe electricity). So yes, your purples will catch aflame, but they will deal damage, and then you can whistle the fire off them.

TL;DR Purples can kill Fiery Bulblaxes which are still on fire.

I've never played Pikmin before but I had to get this game because of the graphics which are the best I have ever seen in any Nintendo game ever. I got it in the mail this morning and it's waiting for me at home. Looking forward to trying it.

Can anyone conform whether or not you can sleep in this game? You know you could sleep in Pikmin and Pikmin 2, and the Pikmin would take you back to the ship or onion? Can you still do that? It might be a bit redundant now since you can assign waypoints to the captains via the gamepad, but I still found that feature pretty useful at times

No, I don't think so. At least not where I stand in the game at this point.

Am probably gonna continue with the story mode today, after I get home from work. I usually put a one hour time limit when I play during the weekdays, since I have lots of other, more boring but yet neccessary, things to do. But I'll have next week off, so then I can do some hardcore gaming (that is, when I'm not hanging out with family or friends).

Isn't there like an unofficial "rule" on YouTube that all who upload LPs must have to wait a couple of months or so, after the game has been released, before you upload anything. This is because people must get a chance to play the games themselves before they watch any LPs. Have in mind that Pikmin 3 has yet to be released in some countries. I think it's more fair to wait a bit and let people finish the game themselves first. But then again, the decision is up to you, since it isn't an actual rule, just a thing that most LP-ers try to stick to.

I will love to watch your video though, once I've completed the game myself:)

So is the game too short? I've been reading some of the reviews and the length seems to be the main issue for most people. It took me approx 14 hours to complete the main story with all the fruits and now that I'm working on my Mission Mode scores I'm about 20+ hours of total gameplay (still haven't tried Bingo mode though) - right, I might have paused the game for a cigarette once in a while and that adds up to the total, but at 20+ hours the game still has loads to offer, especially with a whole multiplayer mode to explore. I also need to go back to the main story and find all the notes, since Miyamoto said in a Miiverse post you're going to need the secret code you find in ten of the notes.

Bottom line is, didn't think the game was too short - it's well balanced and I don't think I have wasted a single minute doing unnecessary bits.

Top-10 games I played in 2017: The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (WiiU) - Rogue Legacy (PS3) - Fallout 3 (PS3) - Red Dead Redemption (PS3) - Guns of Boom (MP) - Sky Force Reloaded (MP) - ...

There is a note in the game about that subject. I have not found a way to do it though.

The wait is REALLY starting to get to me...

I'll be walking through my back yard and suddenly start to imagine tiny Pikmin running around in the grass.

Thanks for the info you guys, so I guess there's no sleeping in the game

NO NO NO NO NO
I have my driving test on Sunday...they day Pikmin 3 comes out

Now I'm going to have to wait impatiently at the DMV for hours just pondering about Pikmin 3 and then I'm probably going to rush and speed and get myself killed and them I'm never going to get to play the game

Oh man...Sunday is going to be a very PAINFUL wait

Hopefully it won't end up being physically painful for you in that case.
