The Skitter Leaf is an enemy that resembles a leaf. These creatures remain camouflaged on the ground until approached by leaders or Pikmin, of which time they attempt to flee whilst producing cricket-like chirping noises. They are somewhat rare, usually located in very fresh places, such as near or in water or foliage, but they are not worth defeating or recovering. This is because the leaf they leave upon death, while only requiring one Pikmin to carry, yields only a single Pikmin seed or one Poko. The most well-known relative of the Skitter Leaf is the Desiccated Skitter Leaf.

Notes

Olimar's notes

"The skitter leaf is a relative of the pond skater that shed its wings and adapted to life on the ground. With no residual traits of its airborne past, the skitter leaf can neither fly nor skit across the surface of the water. The wings have since evolved into the leaflike structure on its back, which serves to hide the skitter leaf through mimicry. It appears quite effective, as few predators can see through this clever disguise."

Louie's notes

"The superb amalgamation of juicy meat and leafy greens ensures that the skitter leaf will be the new spinach!"

These can take a brief flight with their wing-like leaves now. Also the cricket-chirp alerts enemies to your presence.
