Bulbmin are Pikmin who have parasitically taken over an infected child Bulborb. They're immune to most hazards in Pikmin 2, and only appear in caves. They cannot be brought out of caves either, as they will stay behind. They do become part of the player's Pikmin arm when whistled at, just like every other Pikmin species.
