Attacks Stuns and deflowers Pikmin

Brambeetles are commonly seen crawling along the brambles covering the Vengeful Thicket. These small enemies travel in groups and generally leave Pikmin alone, but their paths will eventually cross at various points. Brambeetles encountered outside of the safety of their bramble habitats defend themselves by closing up their spiked shells around their vulnerable lower body and running at Pikmin in straight lines, trying to knock them over and reduce them to leaf state. While this protects the sides of the Brambeetle from charging and swarming, it leaves the very middle of their shell bare, and a single Pikmin thrown directly on top will flip it over and leave it vulnerable to attack.
