The Skeeterskate is an enemy that skims around the surface of the water. Once it spots Pikmin and leaders, it will inflate the sac atop its head and fire jets of water at them. A single shot of water will splash on the ground and affect all Pikmin within a small radius. It can be killed in one hit by throwing a Pikmin on top of it, much like a Dwarf Bulborb. Skeeterskates are easiest to hit when the water sac is empty, as they will stop to refill it.
