I don't have any snappy one-liners for Olimar. Any suggestions?

Snake Codec Message

Mei Ling:"Snake, have you heard the ancient Chinese story 'The Vain Ocean of Wealth and Splendor' from the Zhen Zhong Ji?"

Snake:"I've been waiting for the movie."

'Mei Ling:"Basically, it's meant to express the impermanence of all things. You know, like even when Captain Olimar has lots of Pikmin with him, they could all be gone the next moment. Those poor little guys--they carry, they fight, they multiply...and they get eaten. Olimar might have lots of company one minute and be all alone the next. It's so sad."'

Snake:"But he can pluck out more Pikmin anytime he wants, right?"

Mei Ling:"Well, yeah, I suppose so."

Snake:"No one truly fights alone. Not even me."

Mei Ling:"...You're absolutely right, Snake. Good luck, I'm rooting for you."

Fighting against Olimar

When fighting against Olimar, remember that he is basically nothing without Pikmin. In addition, his only ranged offensive is the Pikmin Throw. Beyond that, he must use close range melee attacks. Any time you are at a distance, be prepared to knock his Pikmin out of the air when they're thrown at you. It's also possible to dodge them, but a dodge allows the Pikmin to return to Olimar. Attacking them can KO a Pikmin and force Olimar to use the Pikmin Pluck again, and he's vulnerable while using the Pikmin Pluck.
