All missable characters in Fire Emblem Engage and how to get them

Each Fire Emblem game introduces a cast of characters you are able to recruit and bring into your army to battle with. Fire Emblem Engage doesn't have quite as deep of a social system as the previous entry, but still does have a handful of characters that you can miss out on recruiting if you don't know what to do. While the process of recruiting these units isn't complex, if you fail to do so at the right time and miss your chance, there's no going back to get them. To make sure you don't miss out on filling your team with every possible character, follow this guide on how to recruit every missable character in Fire Emblem Engage.

All Flarlic locations in Pikmin 4
A Flarlic growing in a broken pot.

The Pikmin series has always highlighted the idea of commanding huge numbers of tiny creatures at once. With Pikmin 4 utilizing the power of the Switch, more Pikmin than ever can appear on screen, but that doesn't mean you can just grind out an entire army right off the bat. The game will limit you on how many total Pikmin you can control, forcing you to manage your forces between the different types. While this limitation will feel constricting at first, by collecting special plants called Flarlic, you can increase that number by 10. There are 12 total Flarlics to collect, with each stage having one on the surface and one in a cave to find, but you only need eight of them to reach the max Pikmin limit. Here's where to find all the Flarlic in Pikmin 4 so you can travel with a full army.
Sun-Speckled Terrace
The Flarlic you can find on the surface is way up north beyond the electric fence that you need Yellow Pikmin to pass. You'll need at least five Yellow Pikmin to toss up on the potted plant next to the fence in order to reach the Flarlic on the elevated mound.

The second is in the Last-Frost Cavern. Go to the top-left corner of the large northwest room and pluck it out of a sunken plant pot hidden behind some pots you need to smash.
Blossoming Arcadia
Our surface Flarlic is up north on the south side of the water and requires Blue Pikmin to bring back, or Ice Pikmin to freeze the water below it. It is tucked inside a wooden structure you need to toss some Pikmin up to collect.

How to get the true ending in Pikmin 4
A red Pikmin looks around in Pikmin 4.

You might expect a more simple, casual game like Pikmin 4 to have a straightforward path to a single ending. While that was the case for prior games, this time around you will need to do quite a bit more work if you want to see the true conclusion to this tale. If you only play to the point of seeing the credits, you are leaving nearly half the game on the table unplayed. The post-game content is arguably longer than the main game and is the only way to see the true ending. Here's how you can see Pikmin 4 top its true conclusion.

Note that we will only spoil the names of locations and bosses below, not the content of either ending.

How to play Pikmin 4 local co-op
The player stands with Oatchi and some Red Pikmin in Pikmin 4.

Pikmin has had some form of multiplayer component since the second game, but it wasn't until Pikmin 3 that it became a main feature. Pikmin 4 takes it even further, however, and does not allow you to play online. Instead, co-op in this title is restricted to local only. Depending on what mode you're playing, the way co-op works will be different as well, so let's go over how to play with friends in Pikmin 4 so you can enjoy the adventure together.
