The Anode Beetle is a type of species in Pikmin 2, that attacks using Electricity. They are dangerous to all non-Yellow Pikmin that may be walking by them, as they will produce electric currants to another if two are close together. To kill these creatures, you must flip them over by throwing a pikmin ontop of them (Purple Pikmin will flip them over from a small distance). Once flipped, they can be swarmed for an easy kill. Each one is worth 3 Pokos.
"This specimen is representative of an insect hybrid that uses electricity in addition to glycogen for its energy. Although difficult to confirm due to their microscopic size, tiny hairs on the creature's legs cause the friction that generates the electrical charge. The electrical charge is processed by the creature's internal machina battery structure, and then stored as a deus electrifical field. As this field reaches critical levels, surplus electricity is emitted, resulting in a low voltage current that is transmitted between specimens. It can shock other creatures in the immediate vicinity. Considering this process, it can be surmised that the largest impetus to pack behavior is not so much for synergic effect of producing as a pack as it is to take advantage of this most effective means of group preseveration."
"Drain the electrical charge before boiling. Although it is possible to eat an anode beetle while it is charged, doing so may result in an unpleasant tingling sensation."
