Beanlings are rare, small, green-colored beans encountered in the game Mother 3. These enemies aren't very tough, but are worth a lot of experience points at the time Flint can fight them. Beanlings can only be encountered in the Sunshine Forest only in Chapter 1. After that, the forest is impassible until Chapter 4, where they are replaced by the Black Beanling. The only attack that this enemy knows is PK Fire α. This enemy should be dealt with quickly because they will run away after a few turns.
Its battle sound is Battle Sound 46 which falls under Code Numbers 897 for regular attack, 898 for Smaaaash! and 899 for Miss. It is the only enemy with this battle sound that doesn't require hacking in order to hear it.
