    Wondering if someone who's finished story mode can throw me a bone. Whereabouts is the Blue Pikmin Onion and do you need it to get to the distress signal in area number 4 (watery one, can't remember the name right now)? There's a pile of bridge pieces beyond a pool of water, you can't chuck the winged pikmin far enough to get them do blue must be the answer.

    Any help much appreciated.

    @kirinnokoshin I'm not sure exactly what point in the game you are but you can walk your pink pikmin through the water, they'll just fly above it, so long as you can get up on the other side to then chuck them you'll be fine. I don't think you need the blue pikmin for where you are right now though.

    You should be close to one, i think pinky said he got it in day 5, it was 7 for me i think. There is no must do days other than day 100 or something when juice supplies would run out (if you find all the fruit).

    dont you think that nintendo should have a little pikmin grave site and every time a little pikmin dies, you get a grave marker for them.

    At the end you could open up the grave and just see a sea of little pikmin graves that make you feel guilty for being such a careless overlord

    I went back to the first zone and noodled around there for a few days, so didn't hit my first boss until Day 9!

    @Wolves1877
    If you're stuck.... In the second zone, look for the half-built bridge; there's a little jetty nearby with an 'X' made from plasters on it. Try a bit of Alph/Brit lobbing to get over there. The rest should be obvious

    God no! Just the number is bad enough. I had to make myself feel better by focusing on having made more Pikmin than I lost... but it was close.

    LOL!

    Was chucking about 50 pikmin at nectar blobs and accidentally threw in 2 rock bombs.

    Genocide.  Sorry guys.  Did I restart the day?  Did I heck :)

    On day 25 now, have just opened up a 4th area, 7.5 hours on the gameclock though it does feel like more.

    Absolutely brilliant game!

    Finally got to play this earlier. Only got to day 3 but my word its great fun. Lost a Rock Pikmin stupidly on Day 2. Watching him flounder as a creature closed in on him was like a Willem Dafoe platoon moment. :D

    @elvenscroll Thanks! I have just enough to order both... but then what if the blue and rock ones are better? I'm assuming they're coming at some point. I might order the yellow one for now and then save the other points for a rock one. It's a tough choice! :-P

    I have a flying pink one from pre ordering with Game. Sadly I only have enough for one of these ones, but at least it's a yellow one (my personal favourite). :)

    I ordered one of each as I had 5050 stars knocking around and they do look pretty unique!

    My kids drove me into spending all my stars on Nintendo points and an Animal Crossing notebook last weekend :( (since there hasn't been anything good in the catalog for ages)
    Sure enough, within a week this turns up (had almost 5000 stars, now I have 600 :cry: )
    At least I'm getting one of those game cases for myself (that is, until my kids see how nice it is ;))

    Over 11 hours and still not done so no complaints on game length here.  Day 30 something.

    I always thought so but I'm not sure if there was any particular reason for that, but he does look pretty dopey. I never gave him any important tasks to do anyway, just in-case!

    Just finished story mode. The last area was quite stressful until it clicked and I realised where I was going wrong. Superb game throughout, the concept still feels as fresh as it did back on the GameCube. Will hack into mission mode when I'm back from holiday.

    @Psychotext There's never a point in the game where you have to kill or let a pikmin die, so ti should be possible but I don't know how much harder it is to do compared to the other 2 games because I do not have that level of skill or patience to even think about trying that!

    I really need to get this, but I'm still caught up in Skyward Sword. Is it as excellent as the reviews suggest? Loved the first two, despite their lack of longevity.
