Attacks Impales Pikmin

The Shearblug is an aquatic mandiblard that can inflate to make spikes protrude from its body. Shearblugs patrol a set area until they see Pikmin. When they spot them, they inflate their bodies to protrude spikes and then roll after them. A Shearblug can most easily be defeated when its spikes are retracted, but Rock Pikmin or a similar Pikmin type can be used otherwise. Pikmin that touch its spikes will perish.
