Captin Olimar is the Main Pikmin found in Pikmin and the Fourth in Pikmin 2. It has the ability to be thrown higher and farther than any other pikmin due to its light weight and glider-like ears. In Olimar's first foray to the Pikmin Planet this Pikmin could lift Bomb-Rocks and throw them at enemies and walls to cause great damage. However, the Bomb Rocks have seemed to grow in size between the first and second games, as Yellow Pikmin can no longer lift them. The Yellow Pikmin also appeared to evolve an immunity to electrical shocks and again became a great help to Olimar in repaying his company's massive debt.

Pikmin TCG
This article contains information that relates to the non-canon game Pikmin TCG, which was originated by Yoshord, a user on this Wikia.

Yellow Pikmin appear in the Pikmin 1 Card Set. As this is before they forgot how to use bomb-rocks, they have a similar card to Bomb-Rock Pikmin (explosion damage; a counter; high attack). In other sets, they are more like red and blue pikmin, with just a resistance to electricity.
