Plucking Pickmin.jpg

You can get through Looking for Louie without carrying any enemy remains to the onion by just plucking Pikmin you come across on your path. Go for a faster clear time by not having to backtrack to the onion.

Try to avoid battling any enemies

Try to avoid enemies.jpg

There are a ton of strong enemies in this mission, like Spotty Bulbears. There won't be enough time or Pikmin to defeat them all, so avoid fighting enemies when you can run past them.

The Hermit Crawmad shown in the picture can't actually reach your Yellow Pikmin while they are breaking the wall, so you can just ignore it.

Don't waste Bomb Rocks

Bomb Rocks.jpg

There are several walls in this mission which can only be broken via bomb rocks. While there are a couple spare bombs, it's a good idea to avoid wasting any of them as much as possible.

The Whiptongue Bulborb shown in the picture drops a Bomb Rock, so if it's an enemy that blocks you path like this one, you can throw a bomb rock at it.

How to Use Bomb Rocks

Louie and Olimar are in different areas for the entire mission, and your goal is to reunite them. Since you're already split up, you should be sure to switch over when you are waiting for Pikmin to finish digging up a mound, etc. to conserve time.
