|Behind the Scenes|
The Yellow Pikmin is a species of Pikmin that was discovered by Captain Olimar on PNF-404.
Yellow Pikmin are lighter than other species of Pikmin, giving them heightened agility. These species of Pikmin are often found in higher elevations, or up in the canopy of small trees. They are notable for their yellow coloration, and a set of primitive "ears" on the side of their heads. It is unclear if these really do aid in their sense of hearing or if they're just for show.
While not able to fly like Flying Pikmin, they are able to be thrown farther and higher than most other Pikmin. Their most notable ability is their ability to create electricity, and withstand electric charges. It is unknown how it is able to withstand electricity to such a degree, but it can be speculated that this is a very advanced form of Red Pikmin's heat resistance. If this is true, then it would make Yellow Pikmin an advanced descendent of Red Pikmin.
