|Behind the Scenes|
Flying Pikmin are the lightest species of Pikmin known, barely spending any time on the ground thanks to their small transparent "wings". They are considered a more advanced species of Pikmin not just from the wings, but also for the crystalline goggles over their eyes, and lavender flower. Although their limbs are smaller than other Pikmin limbs, they are still just as strong, and are capable of lifting objects off of the ground and fly back to their homes with it without much strain.
Flying Pikmin are helpful towards other species, same as any other Pikmin, but these Pikmin have a habit to steal objects from other species, possibly because they can fly away with objects to where other Pikmin can't follow. These creatures specialize in airborne attacks, but are helpless if left on the ground.
