Pikmin A features completely different characters, different Pikmin, different gameplay, different locations, and for the first time in the Pikmin series it features actual antagonists.
In the game's story, the protagonists explore all the planets in the solar system of PNF-404, the planet where the events of Pikmin 1-3 took place.

The protagonists of the game are Sebbonski (left) and Seppanski (right), who only call each other by nicknames. They are the best investigation team of SPROUTNIK Corp. from planet Bumta. Sebbonski is the older brother, and is very determined at his job. Seppanski is the younger brother, and is very undetermined. Despite their differences, they are an excellent team, and really care for each other.
Besides both their positions as SPROUTNIK Corp. investigators, Seppanski is an ongoing writer, and Sebbonski is an ongoing artist. They combine their works to create logs for SPROUTNIK Corp. back home.
The brothers both speak and write in a fictional language from their home planet Bumta, simply called "Bumtish". Similar to the languages of Hocotate and Koppai from Pikmin 2 and 3, Bumtish has all 26 letters of the alphabet and is perfectly translatable.
The SPROUTNIK Corp.
SPROUTNIK Corp. is a space cooperation investigating the Aeroix system. They send the brothers to investigate the phenomenon of PNF-404‘s neighbors suddenly developing life.
The NX is a space ship build by SPROUTNIK Corp.
As such, the brothers are investigating the Aeriox system with it.
It can split open its two segments, revealing a sort of generator, where it can absorb samples to collect them, or absorb the brothers to transfer them in and out of their cockpits, similar to the SS Drake in Pikmin 3.
Also similar to the SS Drake in Pikmin 3, the NX doesn't have its own personality like the Hocotate Freight Ship in Pikmin 2. But it does inform its users if a sample has been collected, and it can give analyses about the collected objects.
The Teks are an intellegent extraterrestrial species. Their past, origin, and even their real looks are unknown. They play the role of the antagonists. They copy life from PNF-404 to its neighbor planets with their terraforming technology.
The new Pikmin the brothers find on their adventure. The brothers call them Plastmin due to their perfectly round shape for the Plaster. They have red flowers, because red is Pikmin A's symbolic color.
The new Pikmin the brothers find on their adventure. The brothers call them Plastmin due to their perfectly round shape for the Plaster. They have red flowers, because red is Pikmin A's symbolic color.
Like usual in the Pikmin series, Pikmin A features a daytime span. One day is around 20 minutes long. The brothers must plan how they take on each day. Plastmin that aren‘t in their group or near the NX by the end of the day will be lost, so the brothers have to gather their Plastmin before the day ends.
When the Day ends, the brothers enter their NX, the Plastmin enter their onion, and they all fly off to the athmosphere of the planet they are on right now.
Then the player gets statistics of the day. How many samples they found, and how many new Plastmin they grew or how many they lost. Then the Aeroix Map opens.
The Pikmin Blaster
The Pikmin Blaster, „Plaster“ for short, is the most important gameplay element. The brothers use it to make their Plastmin fly.
Firing Plastmin with the blaster works just like throwing Pikmin in the other titles, but with way more range and power. The leaders have a cursor to target, can switch between Pikmin types and can fire them without any cooldown until they have no Pikmin following them anymore. Once they called them with their wistle, they can fire them again.
The Plaster can also fire Bomb Rocks which the brothers can collect on their way, meaning that Pikmin aren‘t needed to carry Bomb Rocks.
The Bomb Rocks are still needed to destroy Stone Walls, so the leader must always keep an eye on the Bomb Rock counter at the right bottom of the screen if he should use it or not.
If a leader is out of Plastmin, he can shoot Energy Balls to defend himself, similar to the punch in the other titles. It is effective against small creatures like Dwarf Bulborbs (10 damage in-data) but very weak against bigger creatures like Bulborbs (3 damage in-data).
If a CPU leader is attacked by a creature, he will shoot at it with energy balls. This is different than in Pikmin 3, where attacked leaders would start to panic and run in circles.
Unlike in Pikmin 1-3, the leaders CAN‘T order their Plastmin to swarm at creatures or obstacles. Instead, each Plastmin type has its own „Plast“, a shot with a special effect.
Plasts don‘t do damage. Creatures have a second gauge besides their life gauge that gets shown when they‘re hit by a Plast, and fills up with the color of that Plastmin. Once the gauge is full, the effect happens. Many creatures have to be affected by a Plast to become vulnerable.
The Pause Menu
From the Pause Menu the player can access:
- The map of the current area.
- The "Go Here!" function to send a CPU leader to a specific point on the map.
- „Options“,„End Day“, „Restart Day“, and „To Title“.
- A statistic of all Plastmin in the group, slacking, and carrying.
The Aeroix Map
From the Aeroix Map that opens after completing a day, the player can travel between the planets they unlocked. After defeating a boss, the next planet gets unlocked.
The player can also access the Piklopedia from the Aeroix Map and trigger a dialogue between the brothers that differs each day.
The story mode of Pikmin A.
The story takes place after the events of Pikmin 3, at an unknown time.
The intro cutscene introduces the space cooperation „SPROUTNIK Corp.“ on the planet „Bumta“. All members of the cooperation‘s headquarters are watching a huge screen with a portrayal of PNF-404‘s solar system.
The cutscene shows that after the events of Pikmin 3, further investigation on PNF-404 has started. There are now SPROUTNIK satellites watching its solar system, which has been named „Aeroix“.
A scientist informs the commander that the SPROUTNIKs have suddenly detected life on the other planets, similar to life on PNF-404. The commander then orders to send their best investigation team, the two brothers Sebbonski and Seppanski, to the Aeroix system.
On each planet the brothers have to collect samples in form of fruits or other plants. There are 8 samples to collect on each planet, making it 64 in total. On each planet the brothers also find a new Plastmin type inside their onion, which then combines with the other onions similar like in Pikmin 3.
The areas on the planets are rather small, compared to the areas in the main Pikmin titles, but they are filled with dangerous creatures and obstacles, blocking the way to progression or to samples.
The normal creatures are always different versions of well-known creatures from the Pikmin series, and the boss creatures are completely new.
Each new creature they find gets added to the Piklopedia.
Samples and creatures can still be carried like usual in the Pikmin series. The Plastmin automatically carry back found samples to the NX to collect them, and they will carry defeated creatures back to their onion to multiply. Each sample and creature has a different weight, so the brothers need to have enough Plastmin in their group to carry them back.
The areas can all be explored freely, and searched for samples and new creatures, but they all have a main goal. The main goal is always to reach the location of a signal, which then leads to a fight with a boss creature.
|Planet 1: PR-402
(Real Planet: Mercury
Meaning: Planet Required)
Area: Everdawning Desert
The brothers first travel to a yellow, sandy planet they call „PR-402“, to an area they call the „Everdawning Desert“.
When they first land on the planet, they begin their adventure with:
Seppanski: „So this is one of the planets that suddenly developed life, Sebbon?“
Sebbonski: „Yes, Seppan! Let's keep our rank as "the best of the best" and investigate this planet down to the last stone!”
And so they do. They don’t go a few steps without a danger in the way tho. A PR-402 Bulborb waits around the corner, getting attacked by Red Plastmin.
The tutorial of the game is that they first have to whistle the Red Plastmin off of the Bulborb, then shoot the Red Plastmin to defeat it. The tutorial Bulborb doesn’t attack, so there’s no danger.
After the tutorial the brothers ask how these new Pikmin came to be.
Sebbonski: “You just saved us, little guys! Or did we save you? Whatever it was, it would be my, and my brothers, honor to work with you. May you take us by your little hands and let us investigate your planet together with you?”
Seppanski: “Um…, Sebbon…? I don’t think they get you. But it seems they like us. But where do they come from? There are no reports of round Pikmin, are there?”
Sebbonski: “Indeed, Seppan. Where do they come from? Perhaps they were created with the sudden development of life on these planets.”
Seppanski: “Could be, maybe. Hey, Seppan, let’s call these guys “Plastmin”. They fit perfectly into the Plaster, so the name fits aswell.”
Sebbonski: “That’s a good name for them, Seppan. Similar, but special. Just like they are.
We absolutely need them for our investigation. We need to find more. If they are Pikmin, they have an onion, where they can multiply. Let’s search for it.”
The brothers and their new friends head to the Red Plastmin Onion, that is also waiting for them around the corner, and are now able to multiply the Red Plastmin.
It turnes out to be the first boss creature, the Steelshelled Shlitch.
When they leave the planet’s orbit, they realize that the Red Plastmin Onion is able to leave its planet’s orbit and follows them through the Aeroix.
The Pikmin Onions were never recorded leaving the athmosphere of their home planets, so seeing this Onion following them is a big surprise for them.
Sebbonski asks, if maybe, this was not their home planet at all. Maybe they come from somewhere else? The brothers believe that if they investigate all planets, they will eventually find out what happened in the Aeroix.
|Planet 2: FP-403
(Real Planet: Venus
Meaning: Forbidden Planet)
Area: Lava Stream
The brother‘s adventure brings them to a dry, rocky, black-brown colored planet with burning temperature. They call it „FP-403“. The entire planet is covered in streams of lava, for that, the brothers decide to call the area they land in „Lava Stream“.
When the brothers first land:
Sebbonski: „This planet has really intense temperatures. But our space suits are perfectly protecting us against all sorts of dangers.
We could even walk through the lava with them. So do not worry, Seppan.
We have to find the signal, and, of course, investigate the planet.“
Sebbonski „Indeed. How can the sudden development of life cause structures from PNF-404 to appear?
There MUST be a force behind all this. I‘m sure of it now.“
Seppanski: „That doesn‘t help us. Well, it‘s an electric gate. Yellow Pikmin are immune to electricity. They could get rid of it for us. But we can‘t bring any from PNF-404, so...“
Sebbonski: „Good idea, Seppan. When there are Red Plastmin, there may be more types of Plastmin. Maybe we can find the Yellow Plastmin Onion on this planet.“
Seppanski: „You‘re betting on the least possible thing, as always. I guess it‘s better than watching the gate rust.“
The brothers have tofind the Yellow Plastmin Onion at the end of a long straight road next to the lava stream.
When the brothers find the yellow onion, a FP-403 Snagret tries to pick the onion out of the air and drag it into the ground.
The brothers use the Red Plastmin‘s immunity against fire to defeat the beast and save the onion.
The onion lands and a single yellow seed lands in the ground, for the brothers to pick and get new yellow friends.
Inside the vulcano, the origin of the signal takes a lava bath in the center: The boss creature, the Crarusterbug.
The signal was caused by some strange kind of green battery.
After letting the NX analyse it, the brothers realize it can be used to power the small satelite they found on PR-402. The battery must have a connection with the satelite to cause the signal.
The battery still works. The brothers put it into the satellite, and it activates with a loud noise, transmiting another signal.
The NX is able to locate where the satelite sends its signals to.
|Planet 3: PNF-404
(Real Planet: Earth
Meaning: Planet Not Found)
Area: Garden of Hope
The brothers follow the signal that leads them to PNF-404, the planet of the Pikmin. They land on a safe spot in the well-known Garden of Hope, Pikmin watching them from the distance and quickly running away when the brothers jump out of their ship.
Next, you want to settle on this planet.
But they still decide to stay. But they decide to stay in the Aeroix and follow the ship. They need more answers.
|Planet 4: PNA-405
(Real Planet: Mars
Meaning: Planet Not Allowed)
Area: Dust Mountains
The TEK Pod‘s signal leads to a planet the brothers PNA-405, inside an area they call the „Dusty Mountains“. These red-colored mountains are covered in strange green and yellow flora, which the brothers find most interesting, and green water flows between them.
The signal comes from a big round pond of green water.
Their way is blocked by another gate, but it‘s a gate they have never seen before. It‘s a gate made entirely out of metal.
After a long walk through the Dust Mountains, on top of a very steep hill covered in yellow, the brothers find their key for the Metal Gates.
Guarded by strong creatures, the White Plastmin Onion waits for them to be freed.
The brothers figure that the white Plast can decompose metal, so they can now destroy the gate at the beginning of the area.
Unfortunately, the way to the signal is covered in green water, so the brothers can only bring blue Plastmin with them.
The signal comes from the middle of the pond, where a small round sandbar.
It‘s the asleep boss creature of this planet, the Nine-eyed Inavder. When the brothers come near, it wakes up.
|Planet 5: NAP-406
(Real Planet: Jupiter
Meaning: Not Acceptable Planet)
Area: Rose Paradise
The next signal comes from the planet the brothers call NAP-406, inside an area they call „Rose Paradise“. The area is overgrown with white grass and is covered in pink leafs from majestic trees. The surface gets highlighted with even more pink or white plants.
Their landing, however, is not that beutiful. When the brothers and the Plastmin Onion fly down to land on a safe spot, a giant purple tentacle emits from the surface. The tentacle hits the ship and makes it tremble, Seppanski gets accidentally teleportet out of the NX by the impact.
Seppanski lands safely in the soft plants of the area. He sees the NX falling down in the distance, together with the Plastmin Onion that still follows the ship. It‘s no use to wait. Seppanski has to find the ship.
After this first landing on NAP-406, Seppanski and Sebbonski are seperated. Seppanski has to make it through the beginning of the area all alone. But luckily, Seppanski finds the Purple Plastmin Onion.
Their resistance to knockback makes Purple Plastmin very effective against the hostile creatures of the area, which stand in Seppanski‘s way back to his brother.
Seppanski needs to collect Bomb Rocks to destroy two Stone Gates in his way, and finally he finds the landing spot of the NX and the other Plastmin Onion.
United again, the brothers can head to the signal, together with their new purple friends. The signal comes from a mountain in the middle of a pink forest. The hostile creatures of the planet make it really hard for them to reach the mountain and carry back samples on their way.
Including the Candytrap Bud, a really tricky creature that looks like a Candypop Bud, but if the brothers fire a Plastmin inside them, they will be eaten.
At the top of the mountain, the brothers encounter the origin of the signal and the reason for their crash landing: The boss creature of NAP-406, the Candytrap Queen.
The brothers bring the satelite back to the NX and activate it. The satelite sends out a signal to the 6th planet. The investigation goes on.
|Planet 6: PAR-407
(Real Planet: Saturn
Meaning: Planet Authentication Required)
Area: Shoal Island
The next signal comes from a planet the brothers call „PAR-407“. The planet is alsomst completely covered in water. Only a small island ,covered with green plants and sand, slumbers on the planet‘s surface, where the brothers can land with the NX and the Plastmin Onion. The brothers call it „Shoal island“.
The signal comes from a water cave deep below Shoal Island. Meaning, the brothers can only use water-proof Blue Plastmin to investigate this planet. One side of the beach is like a huge ramp leading into the ocean. The brothers can go down into the water from there and investigate the ocean, and let their Plastmin carry back samples or defeated creatures up the sand ramp.
Once the brothers step through the ocean, the origin of the signal already shows itself: The boss creature of this planet, the Decaying Dreadler.
The Dreadler swimps around the entire area and shines around its spotlight to find prey. It is invurnable to attacks, so the brothers figure they have to find a way to harm it.
While investigating the underwater area, the brothers must avoid stepping in the Dreadler‘s spotlight at all costs. If they or their Plastmin stand it its spotlight, it will start chasing them, clutching its theeth to eat the Plastmin. All the brothers can do is run until it loses interest.
When the brothers make it through the area to the signal, they find an entrance to an underwater cave. The cave is not filled with water, because its leading to the surface.
In that underwater cave something waits for them. The Black Plastmin Onion.
The brothers can now destroy crystals with their help.
And then suddenly, the Dreadler finds them again. It sticks its head through the enterance in an attempt to attack them, but its stuck. Now it‘s time for payback.
The battle consits of the Dreadler being stuck in the cave entrance, and inhaling air to suck up Plastmin and eat them. The brothers must use the Black Plast to shatter its crystal theeth. It will then close its mouth in pain, and can be damaged. After a few seconds it can regrow its theeth and start inhaling air again.
When the brothers defeat the beast, it spits out another satelite and sinks back down into the ocean, where the blue Plastmin can carry it back to the Plastmin Onion.
|Planet 7: PRT-408
(Real Planet: Uranus
Meaning: Planet Request Timeout)
Area: Thaw Ice Pond
The next signal leads them to a light-blue ice planet the brothers call „PRT-408“, inside an area they call Thaw Ice Pond. The area is covered in snow, but the temperature still allows the water streams around the area to flow.
In this area, the brothers find the Pink Plastmin Onion. The onion is stuck under a crystal snow globe, which the brothers can destroy with the Black Plast. Their new pink friends are able to fly, so the brothers can fire them almost anywhere to reach samples and areas they couldn‘t reach before.
The Pink Plastmin let down a bridge at the end of the area, which makes them able to reach the signal. The signal comes from a square formation of tall ice cubes standing inside a big pond.
The origin of the signal is the boss creature of this planet, the Stelting Shivvskit.
The Shivvskit attacks similar to the Calcified Crushblat. It slams down its head onto the ground to crush Plastmin. When the Shivvskit slams down on one ice cube, that ice cube will sink into the water, and the ice cubes around it will jump up into the air to throw the brothers and their Plastmin off their feet.
When the brothers defeat the Shivvskit, it spits out another satelite.
|Planet 8: PIC-409
(Real Planet: Neptune
Meaning: Planet In Conflict)
Area: Battle Crater
On their way to the last Planet of the Aeroix the brothers already realize something very strange. The planet they call „PIC-409“ seems to be way underdeveloped compared to the other planets of the Aeroix system. It is covered in a brown crusty surface, and in the middle lays a giant crater with orange colored earth.
The TEK Guard can‘t attack by itself. It stands still on its platform and blinks with its eye to make the two cannons behind it shoot lasers at the brothers and their plastmin. It holds two shield made of crystal in its short arms to protect itself. The brothers need a Black Plast to destroy both of crystal shields.
Exhausted of this nearly endless circle of protecting mechanisms, the brothers and their Plastmin can now finally enter the TEK base.
|Planet 9: TEK-000
Areas: Test Arena
The brothers approach planet „TEK-000“, the machinery planet which the TEKs call their home and use to travel around space.
It‘s surface is not a real surface. It‘s a metal cover. It‘s like a space ship! So there must be an entrance to the inside. But where?“
Oh. I think I just found one.“
Follow instructions or you will be lost!“
You will now be put to a test!
Use the TEKmin to find 8 treasures hidden inside the Test Cave. TEKmin will carry back found treasures to me, and I will collect them.
I provide infinite TEKmin, so call new if needed.
Beware of hostile creatures of PNF-404 put inside the Test Cave.
Attempts to use the TEKmin against me will be punished.
Go now, test subject.“
The brothers find themselfes again inside a big round room in the center of TEK-000. The room multiple big gates. The NX is unfortunately stuck inside one of them, but the Plastmin Onion could fit trough, as well as Sebbonski who teleported himself out of the stuck NX. Another of the gates opens, and Seppanski gets seemingly thrown out of it. After this rough reunion, the brothers spot eachother and embrace.
All planets are based on the actual planets in our solar system, and the actual order of them as well.
The Cave Days
This mode is unlocked after beating The Adventure.
A second story that plays just after the first story ends. SPROUTNIK Corp. located strange signals in the Aeroix system. It turns out that caves appeared on the surfaces of the other planets, emiting these strange signals. They command Sebbonski and Seppanski to stay at the Aeroix system and investigate them in a Pikmin 2-like fashion.
It is called „Cave Days“ because each cave gets explored on another day, as daytime doesn‘t proceed normally inside the caves.
The brothers visit all planets of Aeroix again, but in the opposite order and with the exception of TEK and PNF-404. Meaning there is a total of 7 days.
The goal in each cave of each planet is to go through all Sublevels and collect as many treasures as possible. At the end of each cave a boss Long Legs is waiting. They don‘t need to be defeated to leave the cave, but they hold a HUGE treasure.
|1: PIC-409 (Neptune, planet conflict)
Cave: Deeper Crater
|4 Sublevels||Boss: Daddy Long Legs|
|2: PRT-408 (Uranus, planet request timeout)
Cave: Thaw Ice Cavern
|6 Sublevels||Boss: Shakey Long Legs|
|3: PAR-407 (Saturn, planet authentication required)
Cave: Tropical Tunnel
|5 Sublevels||Boss: Tropical Long Legs|
|4: NAP-406 (Jupiter, not acceptable planet)
Cave: Rose Lair
|5 Sublevels||Boss: Rose Long Legs|
|5: PNA-405 (Mars, planet not allowed)
Cave: Dust Adits
|4 Sublevels||Boss: Destroyer Long Legs|
|6: FP-403 (Venus, forbidden planet)
|3 Sublevels||Boss: Lava Long Legs|
|7: PR-402 (Mercury, planet required)
Cave: Quicksand Hole
|6 Sublevels||Boss: Baby Long Legs|
Every cave is located by a strange signal. After exploring the 7 caves, the SPROUTNIK gets a new strange signal, from space this time. The brothers decide to pay this last one a visit as well, and find out the truth behind the signals.
A broken SPROUTNIK is hovering there in the endless depths of space. That SPROUTNIK was manipulated by the TEKs during the battle with them. It has been reprogrammed to pay all planets a visit and terraform caves.
The Boss Rush
This mode is unlocked after finishing The Adventure.
All bosses of the Adventure have to be defeated in a row with a specific amount of Plastmin.
Before the Boss Rush starts, the brothers have to gather Plastmin in a small, completely new area. There is a total of 100 Plastmin (20 of each kind) hiding in the area that can be called with the whistle to join the team. After 60 seconds of searching the brothers return to the NX in the middle of the area and begin the boss rush.
The brothers have to survive the boss rush with all the Plastmin they could gather. If a leader gets down or all Plastmin are lost, it‘s Game Over.
All modes can be played with 2 players via splitscreen. The game can be played local with multiple controllers or even online with a Switch friend. The maximum of Pikmin stays at 100, and the game is still over if one of the leaders is down.
Main page: Pikmin Aeroix - Piklopedia
The Piklopedia can be accessed in the Aeroix Map at the end of a day. The Piklopedia gives information about all Plastmin, creatures, obstacles, and even treasures the brothers found during their adventure.
It is unlocked after completing the first day.
During a conversation, the brothers agree that they are no scientists, but they still have to write their discoveries down to show SPROUTNIK what their investigations brought up. This dialouge reveals that Sebbonski is an ongoing artist and Seppanski an ongoing writer. Together they create the logs.
The logs on creatures don‘t feature scientific descriptions like the ones by Olimar, but Seppanski describes their looks and behavior, gives tips on how to defeat them.
Entries of Pikmin, treasures, and obstacles only feature Sebbonski‘s images.

- SPROUTNIK is a pun on ‚sprout‘ and the satelite ‚Sputnik‘.
- NX is based on the Nintendo Switch‘s codename. Just as the Dolphin was based on the GameCube‘s codename.
- The Badges 6-13 show that the planets‘ names are based on HTTP codes, just like PNF-404.
- The entire game is based on a series of custom levels, called "Pikmin A", which the creator made inside the game Spore: Galactic Adventures, with major differences to characters and story. It contained many Spore creations used from others.
- The TEKs are based on Spore as well. Inside the game‘s space phase, and the galactic Adventures DLC, own planets can be terraformed. The TEKs do the same.
- The planets in the Spore version are all named differently, come in a different order, and add a planet based on Hey! Pikmin. But the planets‘ area outlays are mostly the same. 1. HLM-194 (Mars), 2. WNV-157 (Venus), 3. UPA-203 (Mercury), 4. GTP-006 (Jupiter), 5. PKT-219 (Hey! Pikmin), 6. PNF-404 (Earth), 7. UQA-005 (Saturn), 8. EIS-089 (Uranus), 9. PAS-888 (Neptune), 10. TEK.
