In Channel Gone Dry, you'll need a lot of Pikmin in order to transport the bridge fragments, fruit, and nuggets. You won't have a lot of time, so only bring enemy remains to the onion at the start. Defeat the Orange Bulborb and use it to get more Pikmin at the beginning.

Split into two groups

The area in Channel Gone Dry is quite large, so you'll run out of time if you don't split up and work separately. Work more efficiently by switching over to the other leader while one is occupied with moving bridge fragments, etc.

How to Switch Characters

Make sure to get the Bomb Rocks

You can find many Bomb Rocks in this mission. They aren't just good for blowing up walls, as they are very effective at taking out tough enemies quickly, so be sure to pick up and use them all.

How to Use Bomb Rocks

Prioritize taking out enemies first

If there are enemies on the path, they will attack your Pikmin while they are transporting fruit and nuggets. There are lots of enemies here that will interfere, so it's a good idea to take a bunch of them out in the beginning to avoid this.
