Crimson Candypop Buds are red Candypop Buds found in both Pikmin games. When non-red Pikmin are thrown in, they will change into Red Pikmin. If Red Pikmin are thrown in, they will be reverted to leaf stages, and don't count against the 5 Pikmin limit per Candypop Bud (which only applies to Pikmin 2). In Pikmin 1, this bud could be used up to 50 times to get massive amounts of red Pikmin, but red Pikmin themselves do count against the limit.
"No matter what color Pikmin is tossed into the bosom of this flower, it spits out the same number of red Pikmin seeds. The Pikmin, the candypop flowers, and the Pikmin Onions are not easily explained by current theories of the xenobotanical sciences, and thus have not yet been appropriately studied and classified."
"This spicy flower combusts upon contact with the tongue. Keep fire-retardant condiments within arm's reach!"
