Bubble Pikmin
Can trap smaller enemies into bubbles, making them immobile (though this takes a few seconds to work so it makes them vulnerable)

Can use bubbles as a range attack
or pick up small treasure to lift it up small cliffs
>>
>>322693598
Hmmm I could see it. I think they should make a way for you to be able to tell your pikmin where to go without having to throw them or go with them.

Like there is an enemy like you described blocking a treasure so obviously olimar wouldn't be able to hide from it so he couldn't go. But you could send the green pikmin to go get it. This would also work better for multitasking things.

>When hitting an enemy they have a chance to slow them down. Throw lots on an enemy and it'll get very slow.
>If an enemy eats a black pikmin they may get slowed for a time.
>Black pikmin don't drop items, even if they're knocked down by wind or drowning. They are slower to get up, swim to shore, or generally recover from being hit, though.
>>
>>322694298

There is no gender identification

Wanting a pikmin to let you know it's female is the definition of sexist
>>
>>322694676
That goes entirely against the grain that is Pikmin. Fuck off and go play World of Warcraft.
>>
>>322694612
Nah they don't have genders at all they're plants

Their reproduction method is to absorb corpses into a spaceship and absorb its nutrients to produce seeds, no sexual reproduction involved (unless they're doing some nasty shit inside the Onions)
>>
>>322689953

This idea of black Pikmin with slightly frayed leaves got me thinking about the wars that ants fight in real life. I don't think it would apply to the main game very well, but if they decide to go the Pikmin 3 route and include another arcadey bit of side content, it might work out as some sort of multiplayer arena thing.

It would clearly take some hashing out, but the idea of testing your ability to command Pikmin directly against another person sounds lovely to me.

Also give me high risk high reward nighttime mode.

To the anon that suggested a derivation of Pikmin with a camoflague ability, what if they just had exaggeratedly large flowers when fully leveled that if grouped together give the illusion of a simple pile of flowers, so you can safely navigate when enemies backs are turned.

When it comes to making Pikmin OC, I'm all over that shit.

>Snow Pikmin

>Found in the tundra region. They're covered in dense hair that allows them to grip icy surfaces without slipping. Because of this, they're able to access certain areas with ease, and are immune to ice-oriented attacks*. With the aid of suit upgrades (crampon boots), the captains can also access these new areas. They're least likely to be eaten due to the bristly hairs, but are favored by the Hairy Bulborb just like any other pikmin type.

>*New Blowhog subspecies: Icy Blowhog. Functions like the Watery and Fiery Blowhog, only it spews frigid vapors that immediately freeze the target. If a leader gets hit, they're temporarily unable to move due to being frozen. This leaves pikmin following who are following them vulnerable.

I've always thought Ice pikmin would just be a modified blue pikmin that, when thrown onto water, cause it to temporarily cause it to freeze or something.
>>
>>322688878
black Pikmin
made of tar
sticks to enemies and is hard to shake off
>>
A game that uses all of the Pikmin, includes the dungeon-crawling of 2 and a solid online multiplayer base. I don't even care if there isn't a new type (even though I want orange really bad), I just want an awesome plot like >>322694279.

Maybe the planets just have corporate competition rather than a full-scale war, though.
>>
>>322694279
Why? Koppai has more than enough food and there is no reason for anyone at Hocotate shipping to ever tell anyone about the pikmin or the treasure of the planet.
>>
>>322695032
I honesty didn't like them at first, but God help me they've grown on me. Seriously, I'd never thought I'd find a rock cute but holy fuck Nintendo did it.
>>
>>322700521
also take longer to eat but can't be save from an enemies if it dies while eating them
can be thrown on feet to slow enemies down or in eyes to blind them but has very little attack power
>>
What if you had temporary pikmin?

Like you could use them to do a single task once, but their gimmick is that they do it much more efficiently than a group of Pikmin.
Could have stuff where some instakill enemies enemies, others build things near instantly, and still others carry things a lot faster.
You'd probably only be able to get them from candypop flowers, to add balance.
>>
>>322698198
Freezing Ice would be in interesting new hazard, but other than your Icy Blowhog who expels it it would be difficult to implement. Pikmin are shown to survive well in cold climates. Cold water wouldn't work because technically neither blue nor snow pikmin could cross it, since blues would freeze and snows would drown.
>>
>>322699558
>Make ice bridges for other Pikmin to cross
>Potentially freeze enemies when eaten
>Invulnerable to frigid temperatures

All seem like potential things that would fall in line with the usual Pikmin style of variants. Ways to access new locations, new things in combat, etc.

>blacklash

>>322701562
Not over Pikmin, but there is a lot of racial tension between Hocotains and Koppains. I wouldn't be surprise if they go or already have gone to war with each other.

I'd feel bad about sending them to do things if they were just going to die right afterwards but hey what must be done must be done.
>>
>>322688882
I think the issue with that from a design standpoint is that it splits the number of each type of unit you can bring to counter specific threats

Like if there were seven types available at once and you wanted to be ready for anything, you'd need six groups of 15 and one group of 10, and if you encountered anything that needed more than 15 of a specific color you'd be fucked if you didn't know in advance

THE POSSIBILITIES ARE NOT ENDLESS BUT THERE ARE QUITE A FEW!
>>
>>322703186
Well I think the primary colored Pikmin will always be included, and assuming they keep up the pattern from 2 to 3, they will add two new types and that's it.

I would like if they bring back up Pink Pikmin though.
>>
>>322702991
But there isn't any racial tension just two cultures that dont really interact. Neither of them even seem like the warring type

Considering the size of PNF404 i doubt there will be any wars fought over it especially when a single are could take weeks or even months to fully strip down and value.
>>
>>322703587
Fair enough, but that line about how "Hocotains will be anything for treasure" always sticks out to me. Although rational I know it's just a result of lazy story writing or desperate lore connection. Since the premise of Pikmin 2 is collecting treasure to pay a debt, they have to just say that the race itself is obsessed with collecting treasure as a way of shoehorning why Olimar and Louie are there in the first place. The Pikmin Lore faggot in me hate this reasoning, but I choose not to think about it too much.
>>
>>322704683
But that line really does show how little some Koppai people know about hocotations. They even have shock when they learn from Louie that he not only eats vegetables but meat, when compared to the fruit lifestyle of koppai.

You will no longer be able to throw pikmin, that is too complex for the average pikmin fan to handle. Instead, you will have your wii mote, point it at the enemy you want dead, and your pikmin will automatically jump up onto the enemy until it dies.
