A Skitter Leaf is an enemy in Pikmin 2 for the Nintendo GameCube and New Play Control for the Wii. This enemy can't kill Pikmin in any way, it can just shake them off. When shaken off, Pikmin lose their flowers. This monster just looks like a leaf in the ground. Then when Olimar, Louie or President walks near it, it will spring up and run away. It runs way slower in water — it barely goes anywhere. When defeated the Pikmin carry the leaf part back to the onion for one Pikmin seed. The Hocotate Ship will give you one poko. This monster can be found in Perplexing Pool, and underground in many places. This monster does not have a family, and it was not in Pikmin. This monster has no relative; in fact this is a one of a kind monster.
"The skitter leaf is a relative of the pond skater that shed its wings and adapted to life on the ground. With no residual traits of its airborne past, the skitter leaf can neither fly nor skit across the surface of the water. The wings have since evolved into the leaflike structure on its back, which serves to hide the skitter leaf through mimicry. It appears quite effective, as few predators can see through this clever disguise."
"The superb amalgamation of juicy meat and leafy greens ensures that the skitter leaf will be the new spinach!"
