The Flatterchuck is an enemy that, at first glance, looks like a stone platform with eyes, roughly four times wider than a leader and appearing to have moss growing on it. The Flatterchuck lies flat on the ground with its eyes closed until Pikmin or leaders walk onto it. It will blink briefly and then jump upwards, sending anything standing on it up into the air. It will return to its original state and will repeat the process if something steps on it again. It takes roughly two seconds from the moment something steps on it to the moment it springs up. Flatterchucks act as platforms that can be used to reach new areas. They do not act as traditional enemies and cannot be attacked or killed.
