Pikmin: Hybrids is a real-time strategy Pikmin fangame created by Amphituber and that succeeds Pikmin 2. It introduces a new way of playing Pikmin, allowing the ability to adapt a certain Pikmin by using special berries. The title for this game was considered to be Pikmin: Fusion, which became the title of the game's sequel.
There has been a radical change to the Planet of the Pikmin: strange candypop buds have begun appearing everywhere. Olimar hears of the news from Louie, who has been assigned to collect treasures from the planet for Hocotate Freight. Olimar, despite his family's protests, sets out to investigate. When he reaches the planet, he learns that the Pikmin species is dwindling. Grateful for their help over the years, Olimar takes it upon himself to discover why the species is suffering and to preserve them.
Alarmed, he decides that the dangerous candypop buds he's been seeing are linked to the Pikmins' death and heads to the Iceberg Pond to find out more. At Iceberg Pond, he ventures into Blue Depths, and there he finds an uprooted Vile Candypop Bud and collects it for experimentation.
Olimar later goes to the Ancient Lava Pit in hopes that he might find something to stave off the Vile Candypop Buds. Unfortunately, all he finds is a Hocotatian plant Louie had dropped. Despondent, Olimar travels to the last area he hasn't explored; Dark Poison Land.
He lands in the murky sludge of the area and steps out of his ship to witness one of the most terrifying sights in his life. It is a gargantuan Vile Candypop Bud, spreading filth and death. Olimar now realizes that this Horrible Behemoth is the source of all the Vile Candypop Buds. At first, he has no idea how to tackle this threat, but then he discovers after frantic experimentation that the juices of the golden berries he has collected from various caves can kill Vile Candypop Buds. To get a spray strong enough to destroy the Horrible Behemoth, he revisits the areas he's already explored and gathers any golden berries he may have missed.
