~That's right I found a WHOLE new species of Pikmin which I had dubbed LANTERN~
I was heading over to Charles Bulbmins sight where he has supposedly seen a Rainbow Onion, upon further examination I saw something below that interested me... A tiny lantern that lit up around the shaded brush where it was at. I decided to land next to it since it intruiged me so. After staring at it I felt if I should pull it out and take it with me for a night-ligh- I MEAN, For research of course! Upon plucking I learned it was a pikmin! It has a beautiful black and orange pattern with stunningly adorable eyes~! ((I think they're adorable~!)) This pikmin looked at me at full curiosity so it must of never seen my kind or any space-man before! I didn't want to provoke it at all and just let it free roam with my eyes carefully watching it. He took full curiosity to everything around him and even his own lantern! He just watched it dangle back and forth, an then noticed he had hands... It was pretty funny how he examined them. He just tested out his fingers and glared at them... Fascinating... He must of been an infant since he only made small noises here and there, an not to mention he acts just like one.
He stands a 10mm for now, I'm sure he'll grow a lot bigger when he's older. Actually he took me up as his leader an follows me around just like the rest. So far he doesn't get the whole whistle idea... he'll learn though. Anyways after closer examination I learned he was apparently getting hungry. His light in the lantern dims when he's hungry and burns with a fury when he's full. ((Note to self, keep this pikmin fed around 6 hours per day)) I tried giving him some nector but he just rejected. He spotted a male and female shear-grub and quickly went over. He dangled the light in front of them and sure enough, they were dazed staring at it... I was about to come over and congratulate them on stunning them until... he picked them both up and swallowed them both whole! I was impressed since the shear-grubs are nearly his size! He burped with satisfaction and laid by my side... I adore this little fellow... he reminds me of Nightmare so~ I was just about to leave until a whiptounge bulborb snapped him right out of my hands. I was about to go full-shadowbeast until he emitted a burning light~ It flashed and dazed the bulborb and it fell down with a loud smash as it hit into the foliage! I quickly gathered him up and blasted off as fast I can!
