- Keep blowing your whistle at drowning Pikmin to lure them toward land.
-Keep your Red or Yellow Pikmin from drowning by having Blue Pikmin near the border but don’t have them selected. If a Red or Yellow Pikmin falls in the water near a Blue Pikmin, the Blue Pikmin will go to the drowning Pikmin and throw them on land.
-If you intentionally put Red or Yellow Pikmin in the water, press B and try to get them out of danger or put a group of nearby Blue Pikmin in the water near the suffering Pikmin and press X to deselect them. The Blue Pikmin should throw their fellow Pikmin out of the water and onto safe land.
