The Rustyard Tips and Strategy

Increase Population by Defeating Enemies

Increasing Pikmin count.jpg

Since this mission initially contains a small amount of Pikmin, defeat enemies and return them to the Onion to strengthen your forces. Do it as fast as possible as you only have six minutes in this mission.

Cripple the Crushblat with Rock Pikmin

The Calcified Crushblat is difficult to take down by normal means. Destroy its shell with your Rock Pikmin before going all out on its main body.
