"Vivid pink coloration is the most noticeable characteristic of this floating life-form. This immigrant species is not native to the region, having appeared to have recently arrived on wind currents. The luminescent organ in its head attracts prey, which it then sucks up and consumes with its lower orifice. Unlike jellyfish, the jellyfloat's tentacles do not have nematocysts, so there is no danger in touching them."
"Like a fine cheese, the aroma of this fluid floater can be oppressive, but its flavor must be experienced to be believed. Also makes an unforgettable nondairy spread!"
Nintendo Player's Guide
"The Jellyfloat can suck up your Pikmin and pilots, and hold them in its transparent belly. Direct your troops to keep a safe distance from the flying fiend and throw troops at its body. After you defeat a Jellyfloat, you'll have to show for it but the victims you saved."
The Greater Spotted Jellyfloat is a large target and therefore can easily be hit with Purple Pikmin. A few of these should bring the crearure to the ground. Once on the ground, the player should either continue to throw Purple Pikmin at it, provided they have enough, or swarm it with a squad of considerabl size. Both ways will ensure a quick defeat.
