Attacks Eats Pikmin

The Whiptongue Bulborb is a member of the grub-dog family, but it is different from the others in that it has a long tongue that it uses to slurp up Pikmin. It has a brown face, much in contrast to the paler face of the Red Bulborb, with a long snout at the end that its tongue emerges from, as well as a white body with black spots, and blue eyes.

This Bulborb species attacks with its long, flexible tongue, which allows it to quickly devour Pikmin from much greater distances than other members of the grub-dog family. It doesn't sleep when unaware of the presence of Pikmin. Instead, it will rummage through the ground and sniff around the surrounding area much like a Dwarf Red Bulborb.

When leaders or Pikmin are nearby, it will quickly shuffle towards them. If the Pikmin are standing within attack range, it will launch its tongue outward as a means of consuming them. Up to five Pikmin can be snagged at a time by this move. However, if Pikmin are standing beside it or are attacking its feet, it will lap up individual Pikmin one at a time at a slightly slower pace. Just like all other grub-dogs, it can be temporarily incapacitated by throwing Pikmin directly at its eyes.
