Points for Success

  • Time Required for Platinum Medal: 3:00
  • Start by sending spare captains to groups of unplucked Pikmin.
  • Always charge the Meerslug. Even when it creates a pit and only its mouth appears, use the charge command. You will win.
  • After a Charge make space, try not to be staggered yourself.
  • After the Meerslug explodes from the ground remember to whistle your Pikmin to encourage them to stand up faster and go on the offensive.
