Attacks Causes Pikmin to panic

Black Spectralids are the rarest variety of Spectralid in Pikmin X: Deep Freeze and are recognizable by their black and purple sheen. Like other Spectralids, they roost on surfaces and fly away when approached, but have a bit more edge to them in that they will scatter a cloud of scales around themselves when taking off. Pikmin that get covered in a Black Spectralid's scales will flail around in a panic, but will come to their senses within a few seconds, giving the Black Spectralid plenty of time to fly away to safety. It is highly recommended to sneak up on these creatures and attack from a distance, as they are quickly defeated once a Pikmin is thrown on them. The reward for getting the jump on a Black Spectralid is a drop of ultra-bitter spray.
