Advanced throwing technique
This trick is very helpful in fighting Pearly Clamclamps and Emperor Bulblax. If you want to throw Pikmin very rapidly, to do a lot of damage, press A rapidly while also using the C-stick to make the Pikmin swarm around Olimar. There will always be a Pikmin handy for Olimar to throw every time you press A.

Get as many Blue Pikmin to knock down the wall. Then, get about 80 to 90 Pikmin of any color (Red recommended) and shoot them up onto the nearby ledge.

After you kill the beetle, you can take the canopy back.

Call your Pikimin, attack the beast, and kill it. You should now see the part. Have your Pikmin grab the part. REMEMBER: If you have extra Pikmin you can take the Bolborb back to the Onion to gain Pikmin.
Blowing up walls faster
Get a group of Yellow Pikmin all with bombs go up to a wall. If it is a regular wall, then just throw three of them at one time. If it is a black wall, then carefully throw about four of them, then throw the last two after the first explosion.
If you do not have time to carry a part back to the ship in one day, start to do so anyway. Follow the Pikmin so that you can call them when the game prompts you to gather your Pikmin. The part will be in the same spot that you left it at.

Go onto the ramp the box was on and when you reach the plateau, there should be a bird. Run away from it and collect your Red Pikmin. Check where the star is on your map and walk near it. Another bird should appear. Shoot your Pikmin onto its head. Repeat this process until it is dead. If your Pikmin are going towards the bridge with the part where the box was on, stop them then kill the bird. However, if your Pikmin head to the edge everything is fine.
You need at least 90 Blue Pikmin. Have them kill the frog and bugs guarding the part Next, have them build the bridges connecting to the land.

Shoot the Yellow Pikmin onto the ledge and have the Blue Pikmin activate the geyser. On top of the ledge with the Yellow Pikmin, call them back and launch them to the part. They should bring the part down. Call them back and have the Red Pikmin grab the part. You should now be able to take the part back.
Get 60 to 80 Blue Pikmin and kill the frogs. After killing them, have your Pikmin grab the part. When they reach the shore, take them back to the Onion. Get 70 to 89 Red Pikmin and have them grab the part. Have the remaining Pikmin attack any monsters that threaten the Pikmin carrying the part.

Start with 24 flower Pikmin
At the start of the first day at the Impact Site, notice that you will have no time at the top. Feel free to get all the Pikmin you can into the Onion and then just wait, or run Omar around and practice moves. Because there is no time limit, wait until all your Pikmin grow to the flower stage.

When you are trying to blow up walls with your Yellow Pikmin and have bombs remaining after the task is completed, keep them. They are very useful for killing enemies. Keep the Pikmin with the bombs away from the group. If a bomb explodes, your entire group may die. To use the Pikmin with the leftover bombs, simply throw them at the target and call them back. This will either injure or kill the enemy. If the enemy is not dead just call your group and finish it off.

Note the color of the pellets when you have the Pikmin carry them to their "Onions." The destination that Pikmin will carry objects to depends on the members of the group.

When the same color pellet is brought to the corresponding hive color it will produce more new Pikmin than if the colors does not match.
