I did some messy documentation of this, so it may not be the most neat.

To find info about Pikmin I used a Hex editor (I used notepad++ Hex Editor, but any other free one should suffice)


Enemy Stats:[edit]

dataDir\archives\tekipara.arc
I used dataDir\archives\tekipara.dir to find what each enemy entry was. (since the internal names were spelled out in it)

Each enemy entry is separated by a bunch of "CC CC CC CC" repeating over and over

Health Offsets for each enemy:


  • 0x74 - Beetle
  • 0x1d8 - Mini Bulbear
  • 0x338 - Mini Bulborb
  • 0x498 - Breadbug
  • 0x618 - Smoky Progg
  • 0x778 - Yellow Wolly Wog
  • 0x8f8 - Wolly Wog
  • 0xa68 - Fire Geyser
  • 0xbc8 - Breadbug Hole
  • 0xce8 - Rock Generator (unused)
  • 0xe08 - Rocks
  • 0xf54 - Female Sheargrub
  • 0x10b4 - Male Sheargrub
  • 0x1214 - Shearwig
  • 0x139c - Puffstool
  • 0x1520 - Puffy Blowhog
  • 0x16a0 - Mamuta
  • 0x17f8 - ???
  • 0x1938 - Water Dumple
  • 0x1a98 - Snitchbug
  • 0x1c14 - Tad Pole
  • 0x1d74 - Pellet Posy
  • 0x1ed4 - Pearl
  • 0x2014 - Honey Wisp
  • 0x2194 - Rocpe? Pearl Clam with Part
  • 0x22d8 - Shell (no pearl) (game probably spawns this after pearl clam dies)
  • 0x2434 - Spotty Bulbear
  • 0x2590 - Red Bulborb HP
  • 0x26f4 - Progg Egg HP?
  • 0x2854 - Fiery Blowhog HP
  • 0x28e8 - ???
  • 0x29b4 - Smoky Progg


Object generation files[edit]

dataDir\stages\<STAGE ID>\day#.gen

There is a plant.gen, init.gen, default.gen file in each <stage> folder

Plant.gen is obviously plant placements

init.gen is the enemies that spawn when you FIRST load the stage (so modding it and revisting that modded stage doesn't do anything) I personally just use a Day 2 file which an AR code to unlock all stages to test.

default.gen seems to have placements of immobile objects (geysers, candypop buds, geysers)

The way I found enemies was that each enemy spawn had "iket" which was the internal name "teki" but reserved once compiled in the middle of the entry.

You will notice eno1 which shows some parameters, but have been cutoff in the image. The parameter list goes:

  • b01. which is '62 30 31 04' in hex (not sure)

With XX XX XX XX after each parameter which is the value of each
