Attacks Knocks away Pikmin

The Vapor Goolix is a species of Goolix that has a body composed of gas instead of liquid and can float because of this. At first sight, this creature appears to be just the two nuclei floating about, but it does have a white cloud for a body. It has no direct way to injure Pikmin, but it does have the ability to knock away Pikmin that are attacking it by banging its two nuclei together. This will fling attacking Pikmin quite far, and affected Pikmin can land in other hazards or near other enemies. Vapor Goolixes will chase after Pikmin, so these can be particularly annoying and hard to avoid, especially if there are multiple. Leaders themselves cannot defeat Vapor Goolixes, but Pikmin can. Both of the two nuclei are vulnerable to damage from Pikmin. If the area is safe, the white nucleus can be attacked since it is easier to hit. It will cause the Pikmin to be bounced around, so it should not be hit if the surrounding area is not cleared. The other nucleus is harder to hit, but it's safer since it does not scatter Pikmin as easily, and the Pikmin can cling onto that nucleus. The Pikmin can be recalled just before the two nuclei smack together to prevent them from scattering at all. However, it is easy to hit the bigger nucleus accidentally, so care must be taken to avoid doing that.
