Pest Aside is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance. The name is a pun on "pesticide," a chemical that is used to kill pests. This minigame was the featured minigame in the Desert Area of the Mario Party Advance website, where it could be played.
The player is standing between four plants; one demands water, while another demands bug spray. The player gives them what they need, and the game starts.
The player attempts to keep the four sunflowers healthy by watering and bug-spraying them to earn points. When a speech bubble pops up near a sunflower, the flower needs something quickly so the player can make it healthy depending if the flower is thirsty or has bugs. If the player does not spray or water a plant, the bubble changes into a spiky bubble, meaning that the plant badly needs something to make it healthy. If the player ignores the sunflower or accidentally gives the wrong thing to a sunflower, the plant loses health. If a sunflower loses health twice, the player loses.
In the Shroom City mode, the player must earn at least 500 points in 30 seconds to win.
