Pikmin 2.45 is a fanmade game by PageBuilder. This game is similar to Pikmin 2, but has a more extended plotline.

Plot

Areas

Rainy Road

This is a giant road with many orange leaves. There are multiple potholes in many locations, flooded with dirt, water, or even mud. The crew must progress through the potholes in hopes of even finding a way through this sunken area. Red Pikmin are found here, and later Rock Pikmin.

Mythical Maze

A dark area with several stone constructions around. This area is optional, but contains many treasures that can help progress in the game. This is actually the Wistful Wild, but the center of the map has since been flattened, leaving access to higher levels in it's wake.

Arch Park

Named for the giant clothesline above this area, there are many clay bricks and other garden elements in this area. This area is actually the Awakening Wood. Blue Pikmin are found here.

Cavern Club

An dark sandy area filled with ancient metal structures and drawing tools. Yellow Pikmin are found here, and White Pikmin in a cave. This area is made out of The Forest Navel, with newer rimstone mountains to the west.

Postgame

Fuzzy Frozen Zone

This area takes place in a snowed-over theatre room, with a massive path carved out in and between the seats. This area is also optional, but is still recommended to access.

Dust Destination

A dusty area with much rusted metal. This area is very rusty, and as such, the Perplexing Pool makes up much of this area. Winged Pikmin are found here.

Sandstone Falls

This area incompasses an massive beach with many sand structures and beach elements. It also has a large castle made of wooden blocks to the west. Purple Pikmin are finally found here.

Industrial Pool

The final area that the crew must face, an ancient playground about the movement of water in a old science museum. The water flows very fast here and bubbles can be seen flying around. Many challenges are to be bested in this area as the team works together to save Louie.

Enemies

Treasure
