Guys I'm up to day 25 with only 18 ship parts in Pikmin 1

am I just casual or is Pikmin really fuckin difficult later on in the game? Seems like when you make it to the Forest Navel it gets knocked up a couple hundred notches
>>
It does, if this is your first time playing it, don't expect to get every single part. You'll likely end up with anywhere from 20-25 your first playthrough. It's really all about Pikmin and time management.
>>
welp, Olimar is gon die.
>>
also Pikmin discussion thread
>>
>>253944798
you're fucked, kiddo

,no but really, unless you complete each area in a day (which is possible, check out this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2-lQB6Z_SQ&list=PL8A8BE605029424F7 ), you're fucked

also Pikmin can be very intimidating, it's very harsh to beginners, but when you master it, it's so relaxing and fun
>>
>>253944958
well in that case is their any strategy to keeping your pikmin fully stocked? I see playthroughs all the time with people's onions with numbers well over 130, whereas I've only been able to manage like 40-50 per onion by day 15
>>
>>253945484
It's been awhile since I've played Pikmin seeing as how I don't own a Wii U, but I always split my Pikmin up. I brought some back to the Onion to grow more Pikmin, I had others carryinng parts, I only took certain colors with me into certain areas.

Sometimes I would just designate a certain color of Pikmin to be on nothing but grow duty while the rest of them did things, and I would switch it out as the days changed, to keep optimal amount of Pikmin equal between them all.
>>
>>253945484
>>253945484
OK anon, self diagnosed Pikmin pro here.

Ask me any questions about Pikmin you have, and I'll answer them, no matter how dumb they might be.
>>
>>253944798

It takes some time to get used to managing pikmin, learning how to fight enemies, and organizing time during the day.

Just get used to constantly planning out your days on the map, try to aim for 1-2 parts a day.

Use the C-stick (or d-pad on Wii).

The bright side is that pikmin 2 has no time limit.
>>
>>253946256
oh sure, could you send me the Wii port of Pikmin 2 so I don't have to deal with the stressful as shit time limit, and maybe throw in Pikmin 3 if you're feeling generous


no seriously though, what are those ominous floating elephant guys in the Distant Springs? I've not done well enough to warrant fighting any of them since I'm gonna start over now, but they're really disarming and I'm frightened
>>
>>253947282
They're death machines Anon, fucking death machines.
>>
>>253947282

Those are Puffyhogs. Because your pikmin are at a high risk to be blown in water, try to take them out with only blue pikmin. They can't directly hurt you otherwise and enough pikmin can drag them to the ground.
>>
>>253947282
Puffy Blowhogs. They blow your pikmin away, off ship parts, and into hazards such as water and enemies. It's usually best to kill them before you have your pIkmin carry parts back. Use Yellows preferably since they're thrown the highest , but always use blues near the water.

Beaten it in 15 days at the age seven, you just gotta keep getting at least 1 part per day and try your best to get 2 - 3 parts per day.

I'm playing Pikmin 1 right now actually.
I'm on Day 3 knocking down the stone walls in the forest of hope

Does anyone else get a creepy ass vibe from the Pikmin in 1?

I dont know what it is, but I feel like they're just waiting til I die to eat me or something. Like vultures.
>>
>>253948787
Have you ever got the bad end in Pikmin 1?
>>
>>253948787
They remind me of like 3 week old puppies. They really don't understand anything and are thrown into a violent world where a guy is just tossing them around and fucking with them.
>>
>>253948865

I've gotten ithe bad end on my first playthrough years ago. Now I can beat it in 9-10 days on a good run and 14 normally.
>>
>>253949107
Well 'waiting til you die to eat you' is basically what happens in the bad end.
>>
>>253948787
They have limitless trust in you anon. You're their leader and you give order to their lives. They want nothing more than to follow your every order and succeed with you . You are just experiencing undying loyalty. They await every order you will give and treat you like a god. You should listen to Ai no uta with an english translation.

Why is pikmin 2 on wii so fucking expensive
>>
>>253952675
Nintendo prints barely any copies of games that aren't Mario, Zelda, Pokémon or Smash Bros
>>
>>253952675
Pikmin 2 became a Nintendo Selects title, didn't it? Should only be like 20 bucks.

OP, here's my advice:
Get as many ship parts as you can
In the first area you can reproduce many pikmin
The final boss takes an entire day

Gain more pikmin by matching pikmin color to pellet color
Understand the C-Stick control, if you're playing with gc controller
Depending on what day you get to the watery area, there will be a secret enemy egg there

Also, fuck you. Read the first letter of each line. 8 year old me did better than you.

3 is easy as fuck compared to the former, holy shit, also who the fuck decided to remove camera controls from this game? One of the best parts of playing 1&2.

I never had the camera problem but I agree 3 is far easier.
I'm going into the Forest Navel for the first time in this playthrough.
I despise this place. The obligatory water level is always stressful as fuck (the Distant Spring and Tropical Wilds)
The water area in 3 is a cakewalk in comparison/

I actually just started a replay of it after beating it back when it first came out. You need to git gud at being a manager.
>>
>>253953653

not to judge, but why would you subject yourself to motion controls
>>
Don't feel bad, when I first played it I literally had only five ship parts on day 30. Granted, I was only five years old, but that still has to be the worst playthrough of this game in history.
>>
>>253958398
>only 49 yellows

What happened there?
>>
>>253958486
I always oversupply on Red and Blues because they're my infantry. I keep enough yellows around for bombing and the occasional high up ship part.
>>
>>253958739
Yeah but not even having 50?
I had over 100 on my 3rd day. There's that giant 20 yellow pellet in the forest of hope that had spawned two days in a row

>Guys I'm up to day 25 with only 18 ship parts in Pikmin 1
How?

If you end a day without getting at least one part just restart it, unless you are spending the day opening paths or breeding pikmin.

Are you playing the wii or GC version? even if people say otherwise, the wii version has better controls, especially for things like shooting pikmin while moving.
>>
>if Sheargrubs grab a Pikmin it becomes invincible until it has eaten the Pikmin
FUCK

At least it isn't as bad as the WollyWogs
>>
>>253960723
not true, throw a pikmin on top of a sheargrub to kill it instantly

thinking quickly will save the pikmin, i used to hate these fuckers until I learned that

>>253960937
I just punch the little fuckers personally but the flying ones can't be punched when they decide to fuck off into the ait

>Playing pikmin 1

>"Fuck it, I can do it better"
>Restart the day

I am the only one that does this?
>>
>>253961285
No maybe
Two or three pieces is perfectly acceptable for a days work
>>
>>253961285
>I am the only one

STOP IT

No, there are plenty of perfectionists out there
>>
>>253959935
because I'm a casual babby and this is my first playthrough, actually really excited to start over though and I don't often get that with games

>>253960723
fuck wollywogs, I've yet to figure out a better strategy than throw a handful of pikmin then call them back within seconds to avoid being squashed, so it takes forever
>>
>>253944798
Pikmin 1 is kinda harsh. Once you learn how to complete puzzles and memorize the locations of the things the only real answer on how to get better is to "git gud". Educate yourself on how to fight each boss and monster, if you're losing a ridiculous amount of pikmin to a single guy then chances are you're either doing it wrong or you haven't figured out the most optimal way to handle him.
>>
>>253961723
During my first playthrough I ended up getting at least one part a day.
You only need 25/30 specific parts to get a okay end, and all 30 to get a good end.

The last boss is brutal. He ended up killing all my pikmin except 3.
>>
>>253944958
maybe if you are a CASUL__

my first playthrough went really well, getting all the parts with a day to spare.

Someone pls dump creepy journey logs?

:3
>>
>>253963007
There's not a lot really.
The only notable one is this:

Day 30 (less than 25 ship parts)
"I am so very tired..."
>>
>>253945484
When you learn where the parts are and how to get to them and such you will be able to clear out al evel and collect a few in the day or set it up so you get like 3 or 4 parts over a 2 day thing,

on day 3 i go back to level 1 with my red pikmin because the first level is the best for stocking up, and then when i unlock the other pikmin i go back and dedicate a day to them aswell.

Also you dont need to get all 30 parts some of them are optional
>>
>>253944798
I got to the final boss by day 14 or 15. probably helped that i got 2 or 3 levels in as a 9 yeaor-old or so, but even the levels i hadnt ever seen didnt give me much trouble
>>
>>253964027
forogot to mention I am only missing the last part gotten from the final boss. then my laptop screen broke and i am stuck with my grandmothers computer.

It depends, if I'm just gonna go back to the world the next day when I'm only missing one piece, you bet your ass I'm gonna restart and try to get it on the same day, unless it's impossible.

There's also the ones where he starts going a bit native before snapping himself out of it.
