Food in the desert is so scare that there is fierce competition between mice over it. Watch out for the vicious grublings in this area, who hoard food and Garden Essences like no other mouse!

Grubling Stampede Minigame
This minigame is activated randomly while hunting for mice, or immediately after a successful catch with a Grubling Bonanza Charm armed. Upon activation, the following message is displayed in the Hunter's Journal:
- It's a stampede! Grubling Mice are running wild for 15 more hunts!
For the duration of the 15 hunts, if the hunter has Grubling Chow Charms armed, he/she has a chance of attracting Grubling mice.
NOTE: If Grubling Chow Charms are not armed, Grubling mice cannot be attracted, and nothing changes during the minigame.
After the 15 hunts, the following message is displayed:
- Aw, the Grubling stampede is over. Next time, Grublings!
I guess Grubling Chow Charms won't be needed until the next stampede!
Hunting tips by Larry
I hope you managed to build up a large collection of Dewthief Camembert, hunter. The mice in these dunes don't seem to like anything else! And be sure to arm your most powerful Shadow trap, as not only will delicious Dewthief attract the mice, but so will the promise of shade from the sun.
There's a lot of competition for food here in the empty desert, and the top competitor is the Grubling Mouse. They dash from food source to food source, gobbling up anything they can find when they get there.
You can take advantage of this by purchasing and using Grubling Chow Charms when there's a grubling warning in effect. Catching Grublings will help you immensely, since they tend to hoard Garden Essences in their attempts to find food.
Or is there perhaps a more sinister reason...?
- Catching a mouse with Grubling Bonanza Charm will trigger a Grubbling stampede for 15 hunts, if it is not already active.
- Grubling Chow Charm allows Grubling Mouse to be attracted during a Grubbling stampede.
