The Flukeweed at first is just a pink plant that the player can scan. However, when Winged Pikmin are unlocked, the player discovers that the Winged Pikmin can unearth this plant. When unearthed, the plant can hold pellets, Male or Female Sheargrubs, or even whole fruits. It is unknown how it manages to hold objects underneath it. It is possible that the item was ensnared in its roots, causing the object tangled in its roots to come out with it.
Some Flukeweeds are used for other purposes. For example, the Flukeweeds on the branch near the Winged Onion in the Twilight River, the Flukeweeds are used to lift the branch to allow the lillypads to flow downstream. There is also a Flukeweed in the Garden of Hope that when plucked, frees the Blue Onion.
