-To defeat Smokey Progg (the swamp monster that attacks Pikmin camp), simply throw Pikmin directly at his face. Be extremely careful on Day 15 when he appears since his trail can kill Pikmin easily. When defeated he will drop an object which gives about 100 to 200 Pikmin.
-Go to the Distant Spring stage on Day 15 or earlier. Walk around until you find a circle of islands with an egg in the middle. Throw one Pikmin on the egg then retreat while it hatches. The Smoky Progg will appear. To defeat it, let it follow you back to your ship and take Pikmin out to throw them at its head. Careful, any Pikmin that touch its tail will instantly die. The Smoky Progg has two ways of attacking. The first is that it will uproot the Pikmin in the ground, making them hit his tail. In the second type, it will shake the Pikmin off its head and proceed to run over them with its tail. The battle costs a lot of Pikmin and is not recommended if you are new to the game. If you defeat the Smoky Progg it will drop a pearl worth 100 Pikmin. Note: The Smoky Progg disappears after Day 15.
