Psychic Snitchbugs are strange, translucent, green scarpanids that have pink eyes and the power of telekinesis. They behave similarly to Swooping Snitchbugs, but they pull Pikmin to themselves using telekinesis, using the power to grab many of them at a time. Once the Psychic Snitchbug releases its held Pikmin it will force them all to the ground simultaneously, burying them. The Psychic Snitchbug can be attacked by any Pikmin type at any time, but Yellow Pikmin and Winged Pikmin can reach it most easily. Attacking the Psychic Snitchbug while it is levitating Pikmin will cause it to lose focus and drop some of them as it shakes off its attackers, and it will drop them all if it is knocked out of the air.
