Take the enemies out first

If you don't get these enemies out of the way, they will try and attack while your Pikmin are doing something. Bringing enemy remains will also increase your Pikmin, so kill two birds with one stone and defeat the enemies you come across.

Pikmin Types | How to Get More Pikmin

Carry pellets with Pikmin of the same color

When using Pikmin to color pellets of the same color, the amount of Pikmin created will increase. Check out the pellets beforehand, and have the appropriate Pikmin type carry each one, or else it will be impossible to get a Platinum medal.

Watch out for hidden Pikmin

In Pikmin Reunion, you'll sometimes pass by pellets or buried Pikmin in hard to see areas, like underneath leaves. Keep your eyes peeled for any glowing from Pikmin, or pellets for the taking. If you make sure to move your pointer around a lot, you will have the option to lock onto pellets, making it easier to find hidden ones.

Pluck all new Pikmin

In order to have the new Pikmin obtained from enemy remains or pellets added to your score, you have to pluck them from the ground. If a leader is idle near the onion, they will pluck them automatically, so you can make use of the Go Here command and have Olimar or Louie head back to pluck everytime a new batch is made.

Additionally, you can throw a leader at a patch of unplucked Pikmin to make them start pulling them from the ground instantly!
