Pikmin: Colonies is a fanon Pikmin game planned for the Wii and PC.

Backstory[edit]

After Hocotate Freight miraculously turned its fortunes around, the general population of Hocotate found out about the Pikmin Planet. Enterprising explorers flocked to the planet on space shuttles. You are one of them.

When you first start the disc, a connection will be established to the Pikmin: Colonies servers. After setting up a username and password, you can begin customizing your captain. You can select a gender; customize facial features; change suit colour, beacon colour and whistle sound; and assign a name.

In-game Plot[edit]

In-game plot is driven along primarily by leveling up.

At Level 2, you will receive a transmission from Capitol Colony, informing you that you are now cleared to explore the Pikmin Planet and explaining some gameplay elements [like combat]. The transmission is kept for later viewing, and a new area will be unlocked. You can also find a Yellow Onion in your safe area.

At Level 5, 2 new areas will be unlocked, and you will be promoted to a Pikmin Sergeant. You can also find a Purple Onion in your safe area.

At Level 7, 2 new areas will be unlocked, and you will be promoted to a Pikmin Lieutenant. You can also find a Green Onion in your safe area.

At Level 10, 2 new areas will be unlocked, and you will be promoted to a Pikmin Captain. You can also find a Blue Onion in your safe area.

At Level 15, 2 new areas will be unlocked, and you will be promoted to a Pikmin Major. You can also find the last Onion - a White one - in your safe area.

At Level 20, 2 new areas will be unlocked, and you will be promoted to a Pikmin Colonel.

At Level 25 and when you have 1000 Pikmin of each type, you will be promoted to a Pikmin General. Also, a cave will open in your safe area that contains the final boss.

After beating the final boss, you will be promoted to a Pikmin Commander and given access to all classified files in Capitol Colony.

Unfinished.

Acknowledgments[edit]

Special thanks to:

Sir Pikmin's project Pikmin Online, for inspiring me to create the basic MMOG concepts and the idea of a PC release.

The crew behind Pikmin: Sinister Incinerator, for supplying the basic concept of Green Pikmin.

Peanut64's project Pikmin Wii, for supplying inspiration for my final portrayal of Green Pikmin (see Bomb-Rock Pikmin).

The crew behind Pikmin: Distant Planet, for supplying the inspiration for some spray types that made the cut.

All users whose games support the Classic Controller, for inspiring me to include Classic Controller support.

And finally, Nintendo, without whom the Pikmin concept would never have blossomed.

If you will pardon the pun.
