Most Pikmin latch on to opponents and attack them repeatedly. Purple Pikmin, though, deal one heavy blow and then bounce off.Move Tip
Pikmin Throw is Olimar's side-special move. Olimar will throw a random Pikmin -- red, blue, yellow, purple or white -- at his opponent. Each Pikmin has unique characteristics: blue Pikmin deal additional throwing damage, yellow Pikmin have curved trajectories, red Pikmin deal fire damage, white Pikmin deal stronger, continued damage and purple Pikmin deal a powerful, single blow that will knock the opponent back. All the aforementioned Pikmin cling onto their opponent to deal repeated damage, excluding the purple Pikmin.
