Yellow Pikmin are a species of Pikmin in the Pikmin series. They are the only Pikmin type in the game that can withstand electricity and can pick up Bomb Rocks. Also, when thrown, they will go much higher and farther than other types of Pikmin. Each Pikmin color has its own unique characteristics, the Yellow's being ears, which no other Pikmin type has. They first appeared in the Nintendo GameCube launch title Pikmin, where they were the second type of Pikmin Captain Olimar would find. The species later appeared in multiple other games, including multiple cameos, Pikmin 2, Pikmin 3 and Hey! Pikmin.
