When I entered Submerged Castle I knew I was dead. I had beaten the first sublevel whiteout HIM coming but on the second sublevel is where most people +me Vind the big bad boss the SPOILER ALLERT WaterWraith!!!! Tammtammmtammmm! Well I only had to get the big chocolate donut but the way the pikmin have to carry it is right next to 3 fiery dweevel's. a tip for this: don't carry back the dwarf orange Bulborbs because then the dweevel's will pick up the dwarf orange Bulborbs and not the treasure. And the WaterWraith can't make it to the side of the pad and also can't do corners. For some reason I haven't lost any pikmin while the Wraith is invisible and following me on sublevel's 1-4 but I did lost 1 purple and 2 Bulbmin to the final fight against him. have you any cool stupid or CRAZY experience with this cave post it down bellow!
I didn't actually have that bad of a time with the Submerged Castle. The only pikmin loss was a blue and that was due to electricity, not the Waterwraith. And it's not like I have experience there, that was the first time I had ventured in to those dreaded depths. Maybe it was extreme caution or my tendancy to reset a whole load, most likely a combination of both.
I lost a lot of pikmin in this stupid cave I lost about 20 to a fiery Bulblax I was in water but I used my ultra spicy spray by accident I wanted to use the ultra bitter spray and it woke up and killed a lot of pikmin. Also you no that sublevel with ten quadrillion bomb rocks? I got surrounded by 2 normal ones and I volatile dweevel and about 30 Bulbmin and 5 blue's died.
I am not bad at the game but I was very unlucky in this cave at least cavern of chaos with only 10 deaths is pretty good right?
I didn't much of a problem with the Submerged Castle besides it used to scare me when I was little (the music is nightmare fuel). All the Wistful Wild caves and the Subterranean Complex were much, much more difficult than the Submerged Castle for me. The first time I went in the Submurged Castle though, I lost 3/4 of my Pikmin to the Waterwraith and it sucked.
I've never really been fond of the Submerged Castle, mostly because I never let Pikmin die. So if the Waterwraith crushes even one measly Pikmin -- boom, reset. So I have to act fast in order to avoid the Waterwraith's rage... I mean, that's not a huge issue, but it's just slightly stressful.
Negative comments aside, I loved how creepy it was! The music, the invincibility... It's even better when you haven't collected the Solar System, so the cave is all dark and creepy. It really feels like everything's closing in around you in there. (Not to get off-topic, but I love how they expanded on this in Pikmin 3 with the Mysterious Life Form.)
It might be one of my favourite dungeons for mixing things up so much. Most of the dungeons are somewhat forgettable, they're not bad but don't really stick in my mind particularly well. I remember my trip through the Submerged Castle much better, throwing pikmin up to safe places, constantly checking to see if the Waterwraith was close, rushing through each sublevel before the Wraith popped in, and especially my satisfaction after escaping in one go. I hope they implement other areas like this in the series, the experience was unforgettable.
Yea I like the spooky style of Submerged Castle to like the fact that its chasing you down is really unique from all the caves this is the most intimidating one. I mean that music..... Brrrrrr spooky but I had the light power up from subterranean complex so it wasn't to bad in that case.
