The Acidic Bulblax is type of Bulblax that has fused with radioactive waste. It has a green color and it still has its signature melting appearance, mostly due to a side-effect of the radioactive waste. It can not only eat Pikmin, but also asphyxiate them with a deadly fluid it secretes when it feels threatened. Every Pikmin caught in the range of the attack except for Green Pikmin will be instantly dissolved.
The Acidic Bulblax's ability to secrete acid from of its body is largely due to its fusion with radioactive waste. It may also be that it consumes radioactive waste as well. However, since it is digested by the beast, its internal temperature grows hotter, which could result in a nuclear explosion of apocalyptic results. To prevent this problem, the Acidic Bulblax is usually found in colder places. Because of this, it keeps its internal body temperature much cooler, preventing the radioactive waste it eats from exploding. Should this fail, Acidic Bulblaxes sleep during the hotter months, which burns less energy and keeps the beast cooled. As for the acid it produces, it is created in a special chamber inside its body. When radioactive waste is eaten, some of it goes to this chamber which is prepared using a special liquid that is highly toxic, transforming it into a liquid form. It is then transported out of its body to the tiny pores on its back. These pores are typically closed while it is unconscious. However, when the Bulblax is threatened, it rapidly opens said pores, resulting in acid spilling over its body. This provides it with protection from predators, like Pikmin. It also has the signature ability of all Grub-dogs to utilize a powerful bite to subdue its attackers.
How to Kill
Only Green Pikmin can subdue this beast. Keep any other Pikmin away from it at all costs!
