Bingo Battle Start Screen

Bingo Battle is a mode where 2 players battle it out to see who can fill in thier Bingo Card first by retrieving fruits and enemies. Unlike Story Mode, battle strategy is required in Bingo Battle, allowing players to experience different ways to enjoy Pikmin.

Win by Filling in 1 Row of your Bingo Card

The rules are the same as regular bingo. You win if you can align any one of the diagonal, vertical, or horizontal rows. The order on the Bingo Card changes everytime you play, so you must decide what order to defeat enemies and retrieve fruit in.

Losing All your Pikmin or Having a Leader's Health Drop to 0 will Result in Defeat

Losing all of your Pikmin or having a leader's health drop to 0 will result in defeat during Bingo Battle. The chance of losing all your Pikmin is particularly high in the beginning since you have few Pikmin numbers, so it is best to avoid agressive attacks.
