Attacks Blows air, depetals Pikmin

The Deflator Spruce is a vegetorbs appearing in Pikmin: New World. It resembles a small spruce tree with two beady red eyes, and so can easily be mistaken for scenery. It is immobile but can rotate to spot potential threats on all sides. Moving too close can prompt it to suddenly raise its body up and then quickly deflate, making a sound similar to a deflating balloon, and causing powerful gusts of air will blow out from its sides, deflowering all Pikmin in its circular range and blowing them away quite a distance. It will continue blasting air until its body is completely flat and then inflate itself to repeat the process.

A Deflator Spruce can be tricky to get rid of, as it can not be stunned initially, so Purple Pikmin are least effective against it until it renders itself helpless. Instead, rapidly toss Cream Pikmin or Yellow Pikmin at it from afar, to avoid prematurely triggering its blowing attack. After the Pikmin inflict some damage, call them back to get them out of the Deflator Spruce's range. Let it attack until it is completely flat and deflated and then rapidly toss Purple Pikmin on top of it, stunning it and preventing it from reinflating.


Olimar's notes

This planet's vegetation seems to follow an evolutionary path towards the dominance and destruction of animal life. This new species of minuscule tree has turned its trunk's interior into an inflatable air bladder. If attacked by a predator, highly-pressurized air is expelled at amazing speed, harming or killing the herbivore that may have been attempting to ingest it. Other examples of plant dominance over animals include the creeping chrysanthemum, whose population and diversity have risen amazingly since I last was here.

Louie's notes

Don't bother trying to do anything with its body or needles. Instead, pluck its berry-like eyes and dump them in a blender. Pour in milk and then set the blender on low. As time passes, add other ingredients or fruits such as bananas, raspberries, nectarines, or whichever you prefer. After you're done adding, set it to high and then wait for your very own unique smoothy to be done.

Sagittarius' notes

It's a terrible weed in a garden and will often destroy whole patches of plants with its constant gusts of wind. Keep in a contained greenhouse with only others of its own species. It tends to get aggressive with other species of plants, especially pansies.

Libra's notes

The needles on this shy plant offer amazing protection for both it and you. Clothing made from this plant-like creature may be spiky, but its camouflage style can not be bested. It is also nice and warm, so you can enjoy looking great even in Hocotate's frigid winter months. However, due to the creature's aggressive air expulsion attacks, prices for its clothing are at an all-time high.
