Day 1[edit]

"Brrrzzzzzt! That was close. I have averted a crash landing. Running diagnostics...

Alert! Danger! Louie is missing. He must have somehow fallen out of his cockpit.

...He is not responding via his communicator. He is either flouting protocol...or in danger!

Olimar! You must find Louie before he freezes to death in the cold of this planet!

Wait a moment! Look!

Could these be Pikmin? They look like they are about to be devoured as we speak!

You must help them, quickly! Press GCN B.png / Wiimote B.png to call them with your whistle, Captain Olimar!

You can also hold GCN B.png / Wiimote B.png to make the sound of your whistle carry farther. Remember?"

New Play Control! changes :

You must help them, quickly! Press GCN B.png / Wiimote B.png to call them with your whistle!


"The Pikmin ran to your side! They seem to remember you, Captain Olimar! How fascinating.

Give them instructions, and do not delay! Hold GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to grab a Pikmin and release to throw it."

New Play Control! changes :

Give them instructions, and do not delay!

Hold GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to grab a Pikmin, then point at the screen and release to throw it."


"Attention! Captain Olimar! I have just reestablished my communications link with Louie.

It is fortunate we have managed to confirm his safety. Press GCN Y.png / Wiimote Minus.png to communicate with him.

I am quite interested in the details of his condition..."


"Louie! Allow me to assess your condition, as per our safety protocols. Are you at all injured?

...Is that so? Then my concerns are eased. Our communication link shows you are nearby.

Can you make your way to our location and rejoin us? I will navigate for you.

Press GCN Start.png / Wiimote Plus.png to contact me and obtain information about the terrain."


"Louie! The odd object before you appears to be one of the Onions mentioned in Olimar's report.

The seed the Onion ejected just sprouted! According to Olimar's report, it can be plucked with GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png."


If the player does not pluck the Pikmin after some time and goes away :

"Louie! The sprout that recently emerged is emitting a strange light and swaying hypnotically.

According to Olimar's exploration report, you should be able to pluck this sprout with GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png."


"Louie, this must be one of the Pikmin creatures from Olimar's report. It is staring at you.

You can use GCN C.png / Wiimote Dpad down.png and Wiimote Icon.pngto issue objectives to your Pikmin squad and even direct their movement.

You can disband your squad with GCN X.png / Nunchuck C.png. Interesting...

Olimar's description of the creatures resembling Pikpik carrots was strikingly accurate.

Louie... My sensors have detected drool in the corner of your mouth. Are you all right?"


"The Onion ejected more seeds! The pellet from that flower must hold nutrients that breed Pikmin.

Yes! The Pikmin gather nutrients, haul them to the Onion, and further propagate the species!

The Onion is a Pikmin mother ship!

Reviewing Olimar's report, it seems repeatedly tapping GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png lets one rapidly pluck Pikmin sprouts."


"Perhaps this object is one of the treasures that we are searching for!

The only reason we found it here is because this is where you crash-landed. How fortunate!

I would like to appraise it, but you must regroup with Olimar first. Can you see him?

Press GCN L.png / Nunchuk Z.png to move the camera behind you, GCN R.png / Wiimote Dpad leftright.pngto zoom, and GCN Z.png / Wiimote Dpad up.png to change angles."


"Captain Olimar! Louie! Your are reunited at last! This has been a troublesome start to our trip.

But now you must feel assured that your combined wits can get you through anything. Correct?

From now on, use GCN B.png / Wiimote B.png to form a single group, GCN X.png / Nunchuck C.png to take solo action, and GCN Y.png / Wiimote Minus.png to change leaders."


"Our first day of exploration has yielded our first treasure! We will be done in record time!

I took the liberty of naming it when I appraised it. The name reflects my current "thinking."

Leave it to me to think up catchy names for hit products! It is but one of my many talents!

We shall end our first day here and report back to our president! His face will surely be joyous!

However, to communicate with Hocotate, we must fly into low orbit above the planet.

We will not return to the surface until morning, so as to avoid the indigenous nocturnal creatures."

Day 2[edit]

"Good morning, workers! Ready for another day of toiling for the profit of your company?

The Pikmin seem to still be asleep inside their Onion. What lazy creatures!

No wonder they lack survival skills. Stand beneath the Onion and press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to call them out."


"How could Pikmin destroy such a massive wall? When massed, their might is ferocious!

Louie! Did Olimar instruct you on proper Pikmin-commanding protocol?

Apparently not. Olimar! You are failing in you duty as a superior! Allow me to explain...

Press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to grab Pikmin and release to throw them. Call them into a group with GCN B.png / Wiimote B.png.

Press GCN X.png / Nunchuck C.png to disband the group. Use GCN C.png / Wiimote Dpad.png to issue orders and objectives to the group.

GCN C.png / Wiimote Dpad.png is useful for swarming Pikmin around treasures and enemies, or making them march in a line!"


"Interesting... Warm air is welling up from the hole in the ground before you.

What could lie underground? ...What is wrong? You both show expressions of unease.

Do not fear! The leader's group of Pikmin will join you. I shall dispatch my research pod, too.

Approach the hole and press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to jump in!"


"Intriguing... My heat sensors indicate that this hole's interior is warmer than on the surface.

Analysis suggests subterranean areas may support different life-forms than the surface.

If you wish to check underground terrain, press GCN Start.png / Wiimote Plus.png to communicate with me.

I am not just a ship... I am an all-purpose support pod!"


"This hole appears to be quite deep. My sensors indicate more treacherous terrain ahead.

Louie, you do recall that you can adjust the camera with GCN L.png, GCN R.png and GCN Z.png, correct?

Your expression suggests you do. Excellent! Then approach the hole and press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to enter it!"


"It's inconceivable that such an immense object has been buried here for so long.

The design on the outer shell resembles the surface of the planet as seen from space!

Perhaps this can be used for something other than salvage.

But how will we ever lift it? I fear that even 100 red Pikmin will be unable to lift it!"


"Astounding! A flower blooms in a cave deep beneath the snowy landscape!

Clearly it is warmer down here than above. Look. The Pikmin are restless...

They look as if they yearn to be tossed into the flower."


"Amazing! A purple Pikmin! It has hair...and is quite stocky. It seems very heavy and strong.

This kind of Pikmin was not mentioned in your report, Olimar. It must be an entirely new type!

Transforming Pikmin by tossing them into flowers? Intriguing... Perhaps there are others...?"


"There is a device resembling a microchip embedded inside this sphere. Retrieving data...

...Error. I could only decode a portion of the data, but I did retrieve new geographic charts.

I will input this data into my planetary database and name it the Sphere Chart.

Press GCN Start.png / Wiimote Plus.png to contact me and access the Exploration Kit on the radar screen with L.

Now that we have this new data, you should explore the decoded territory tomorrow."


"Astounding!
Water is shooting out of this geyser with incredible force!

Sensors indicate it has enough power to launch you into the air. Approach it and press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to try!"


"You have successfully returned to the planet's surface! Excellent decision making, gentlemen!

We must celebrate your first successful spelunking expedition!

You've gathered a large amount of data that needs in-depth analysis.

I shall send a report back to the president tonight detailing your progress."


"Olimar and Louie, since you will explore a new area tomorrow, today's work is done!

...What? You still want to work?! Unacceptable! You may not realize it, but you are exhausted!

You should take a much-needed rest, as you have all the time you need to collect treasure!

Haste makes waste, so take it slow and steady."

Day 3[edit]

"Good morning! It should please you to know the purple Pikmin are lodged safely in my hull.

The confines of my interior seem to suit them perfectly, though they do occasionally tickle me.

Stand in the ring of light below me and press GCN A.png / Wiimote A.png to call the purple Pikmin out."

Caves[edit]

Emergence Cave[edit]

Interesting... Warm air is welling up from the hole in the ground before you.

What could lie underground? ...What is wrong? You both show expressions of unease.

Do not fear! The leader's group of Pikmin will join you. I shall dispatch my research pod, too.

Approach the hole and press A to jump in!

Subterranean Complex[edit]

Interesting... My metal detectors are reacting violently! I can only conclude that there may be some sort of machine below, but that seems illogical...

Frontier Cavern[edit]

Yet another cave discovered! Venturing to the farthest reaches has proven rewarding! You may be tired of walking, but now just one last leap remains! Now, go get that treasure!

Hole of Beasts[edit]

Krrzt! Bzzrrt! Biological sensors are reacting violently. The readings are ominous.

A beast of unknown power lurks in these depths. A large Pikmin group would be reassuring.

My sound sensors are picking up hostile roars of many beasts. Expect dangerous encounters.

Sensors are also showing extreme heat pockets. You may need flame-resistant Pikmin...

But my sensors indicate no such data! Are my records incomplete?

White Flower Garden[edit]

Astounding! My metal detectors are reacting violently. What could be down below?

If you find trouble below, press START/PAUSE to contact me and press R on the radar screen.

The exploration pod will drop its loot to make room to carry you, Louie, and the Pikmin to safety.

Bulblax Kingdom[edit]

So, you have at last reached the higher ground. Congratulations are in order.

...Wait. What is this? My seismic sensors are picking up tremors deep below.

What force is at work in the depths of the planet?

Snagret Hole[edit]

Intriguing! My acoustic sensors are picking up a high-pitched wail.

It seems to emanate from the area near this gigantic stump.

This large root must penetrate deep beneath the planet's surface. Fascinating...

Citadel of Spiders[edit]

Krzzt! My sensors are giving out foreboding signals. These signals could very well mean... ...that this hole is filled with wretched, nasty bugs! Vicious, program-terminating bugs!

Glutton's Kitchen[edit]

Interesting! My odor detectors are reacting... A strong scent wafts from that hole!

I am a machine, so rating scents is beyond me, but your faces tell me all I need to know.

You are both drooling... I wish, just once, I could feel what it is like to drool.

Shower Room[edit]

A large rock sits in a reservoir of water. May I interject here?

I have been observing the two of you working together. You have been cooperating well.

Yet, to face the dangers ahead, you must be free of the shackles of a boss-worker relationship!

Learn to use X to separate and Y to change leaders.

If you can master teamwork, you can overcome any impediment!

Submerged Castle[edit]

Interesting! Deeper sections of this hole seem to be submerged in liquid...

Sadly, I am a delicate piece of machinery that is sensitive to water. You two must go alone.

...Why do you look at me with such scornful expressions? ...I am an expensive machine!

...Fine. I'll go. But this wantonly reckless treatment of company property will be reported!

Cavern of Chaos[edit]

Wait... From all appearances, this is a particulary frightening crevasse. The data is horrifying!

Courage is one thing, but recklessness is something else. Perhaps we should turn back?

Well, if you still wish to enter, keep your daring in check and just focus on surviving.

Hole of Heroes[edit]

I am detecting the howls of countless creatures in the hole ahead. It is nearly deafening!

Sound analysis indicate a wide variety of creatures nesting here. It is a melting pot of life!

Mr. President, be extremely careful! Olimar, your job is to protect his life at all costs!

Dream Den[edit]

Perhaps you will find Louie in here! ...And yet, my CPU is on edge. Ludicrous dangers await!

Beasts lurk at the bottom of the deepest, darkest, most foul, sinister, horribly vile pit.

Do you still wish to enter? Of course you do. Courage is our true treasure!

Pikmin types[edit]

Yellow Pikmin[edit]

"Look! Off in the distance! Wild Pikmin! Can you see them, Captain Olimar?

They are yellow Pikmin. You encountered them when you crashed on this planet, correct?

It would be most helpful if they remember you, like red red ones did. Yes, most helpful."


"The yellow Pikmin have climbed down the tree are are staring in this direction!

They appear to like high places and seem to be quite light. They also have very large ears.

If I had named them, they would be called ear Pikmin, but I will use the name Olimar gave them.

Curious... My static electricity sensors are reacting violently. What could this mean?"

Blue Pikmin[edit]

"Look there! Wild blue Pikmin are chasing prey near the water's edge!

Perhaps by observing these wild specimens, we can understand more about their true nature...

Krzzt! Ding! I apologize, I was momentarily entranced by them. Now, back to work!"


"At last, you have encountered them! They seem to have gill-like ducts on their cheeks.

They must be blue Pikmin! Like the other types, they look to you for direction.

While they are indeed surviving naturally, they still seem to long for a valiant leader."

Purple Pikmin[edit]

"Amazing! A purple Pikmin! It has hair...and is quite stocky. It seems very heavy and strong.

This kind of Pikmin was not mentioned in your report, Olimar. It must be an entirely new type!

Transforming Pikmin by tossing them into flowers? Intriguing... Perhaps there are others...?"

White Pikmin[edit]

"Incredible! A white Pikmin! It is tiny, but looks distinctly swift. Its eyes are unseemly red.

This type of Pikmin was not mentioned in your notes, Olimar. It must be an entirely new type!

Our data record on this type is a blank page, since a certain captain never documented them.

You must experiment and make detailed observations for the benefit of future generations."


"Intriguing! The creature showed symptoms of poisoning after consuming the white Pikmin.

Perhaps white Pikmin excrete a poisonous substance when chewed. How fascinating."

Bulbmin[edit]

"The confused Bulborb has fallen in with the Pikmin. They appear to coexist peacefully.

Strange...this Bulborb has a leaf sprouting from its spine, much like the leaf on a Pikmin's head."

Candypop Buds[edit]

Violet Candypop Bud[edit]

"Astounding! A flower blooms in a cave deep beneath the snowy landscape!

Clearly it is warmer down here than above. Look. The Pikmin are restless...

They look as if they yearn to be tossed into the flower. "

Ivory Candypop Bud[edit]

"How can a flower so deep underground bloom so robustly?!? How mysterious...

This place is conspicuously warm. Could it act as a kind of hothouse for foliage?

What an interesting development: the Pikmin look as if they long to be tossed into the flower..."

Exploration Kit[edit]

Sphere Chart[edit]

"It's inconceivable that such an immense object has been buried here for so long.

The design on the outer shell resembles the surface of the planet as seen from space!

Perhaps this can be used for something other than salvage.

But how will we ever lift it? I fear that even 100 red Pikmin will be unable to lift it!"


"There is a device resembling a microchip embedded inside this sphere. Retrieving data...

...Error. I could only decode a portion of the data, but I did retrieve new geographic charts.

I will input this data into my planetary database and name it the Sphere Chart.

Press START/PAUSE to contact me and access the Exploration Kit on the radar screen with L.

Now that we have this new data, you should explore the decoded territory tomorrow."

Solar System[edit]

"That mechanized monstrosity is no longer functional!

An insect and a machine forming a symbolic relationship? Life-forms here are beyond odd!

Initiating area scan... Glass sphere detected!"


"If I combine this glass sphere with the synthetic sun I have been secretly developing...

Processing...complete. I have manufactured a Solar System.

The artificial sunlight it emanates will brighten underground areas."

Rocket Fist[edit]

"Processing... How strange. This atypical metal object came from inside that bizzare being.

...It appears to be a giant metal hand. Perhaps it is an ancient work of art?"


"This object seems to replicate a humanoid fist. A glove much like it once lay in my junk hold...

...And here is that very glove! I have found the missing Rocket Punch[sic] in my junk hold!

Tap A three times to launch it! One, two, PUNCH!!!"

Rush Boots[edit]

"Ervvt! Olfactory sensors overloading! Approaching outer stink limits!

The stench must be emanating from that object..."


"This object has pockets of air under its surface. It is perfect for the boots I am making.

Processing...complete. Nano-assemblage of the Rush Boots is concluded!

These nullify wind resistance by circulating air beneath the soles.

You'll move faster and you'll no longer be blown away by puffy blowhogs' nasal blasts!"

Survey Chart[edit]

"Fascinating! This object is highly similar to the one you found in the Valley of Repose.

By examining this further, I may be able to extrapolate new planetary data!"


"This hemisphere also contains a hidden microchip! I will attempt to decrypt the stored data...

Decoding complete! As I surmised, this chip contains additional topographic data.

The data has been inputted into my database. I shall name it the Survey Chart!"

Treasure Gauge[edit]

"How bizarre. This device is emitting black light. I must have been ingested by that creature.

What an absolutely repulsive life-form. Our return to Hocotate cannot come soon enough."


"This contraption seems to react when it approaches treasure. I will connect it to my radar.

Processing...complete. The Treasure Gauge is now fully operational!

It will now appear on your monitor. The needle will move right as you approach treasure."

Napsack[edit]

"Well done, Captain Olimar! You've defeated that freakish half-bird, half-serpent hybrid!

Oh, no. Don't tell me... That treasure was ingested by that beast, wasn't it?"


"This material looks comfortable. I will use it to patch the boss's favorite sleeping bag.

Seam test...conclusive. Cross-stitching...successful. The Napsack is complete!

When you have an unoccupied time interval, press and hold X to take a nap!"

Scorch Guard[edit]

"My initial report indicates that the giant bulblax spat out some sort of object.

It looks fascinating, but it's drenched in that creature's internal juices. Disgusting!

... ... ... ... Oh, don't roll your eyes at me. I'll store it for you..."


"This material has perplexing properties. I will try fusing it with this spare space suit.

Processing...complete. Success! Behold my latest invention, the Scorch Guard!

Thanks to the heat-resistant alloy, this suit is now impervious to fire!"

Metal Suit Z[edit]

"You've done it! That bird-beast will trouble you no more!

Processing... How curious. What's that impressive, mechanized masterpiece?"


"Brrrzzt! Does not compute! A metal this dense defies the fundamental laws of physics!

And yet...if I use this to rework our president's treasured space suit...

Processing...complete. Fabrication of the Metal Suit Z is now concluded.

This suit is extremely durable. Getting gnawed or stepped on will now produce minimal pain."

Mega Tweeter[edit]

"Processing... How odd. The gooey creature dissolved, leaving this curious item behind.

It appears to be coated in slime. Are you sure you want to collect this? ...Absolutely sure?

You'll toss just about anything in my hold. It would be nice if you cleaned occasionally."


"This shape is well suited for the emission and amplification of sound waves. A moment, please.

I shall use this as the final part in my new sound equipment. The Mega Tweeter is done!

Captain Olimar, this device has increased the acoustic range of your whistle!"

Anti-Electrifier[edit]

"Processing...How bizarre. An item appears to have fallen out of that freakish creature.

It must have been a greedy beast to swallow something like this."


"This intriguing material does not conduct electricity.

It is far more advanced than the material I was researching. ...How frustrating.

A space suit made from this wonder alloy would insulate the wearer from electric shocks.

Excellent! This new material has allowed me to complete my Anti-Electrifier!

It is my own invention, with only the smallest iota of outside inspiration.

I have reconfigured your suits with this new material. They will now protect you from electricity!"

Pluckaphone[edit]

"Processing... How curious. The wraith completely vanished! But what was it?

Surface-object scans indicate the presence of a bright red component!"


"How insulting... This object's coloring is more eye-catching than my own hull!

I shall connect it to the alarm clock our esteemed president was so fond of.

Processing...complete. I have refitted both objects into a Pluckaphone.

Now, simply blowing your whistle will inspire Pikmin sprouts to pop up out of the ground."

Sprays[edit]

Ultra-bitter spray[edit]

"Astonishing! This purple berry contains an ultra-bitter essence.

It does not appear to have any monetary value, but I shall research potential uses for it.

Bring me another specimen."


"Captain Olimar, I have completed my research on the purple berries you discovered.

Behold the ultra-bitter spray! It's untested, but I believe it will have spectacular results.

Approach enemies and press Up on D-Pad to spray them."


"Most impressive! This fierce beast became as hard as stone in a mere instant!

The ultra-bitter extract seems to have a side effect that stops beasts in their tracks!!"

Ultra-spicy spray[edit]

"Astonishing! This red berry contains an ultra-spicy essence.

It does not appear to have any monetary value, but I shall research potential uses for it.

Bring me another specimen."


"Captain Olimar, my research on the red berries you discovered has yielded a powerful potion!

Behold the ultra-spicy spray! It's untested, but I believe it will have spectacular results.

"Spray it at all your Pikmin by pressing Down on D-Pad"

"When necessary it can produce 1 bottle of spray from 10 berries."

"Press START/PAUSE to contact me and confirm your berry count. Look at L on the radar screen."


"Astounding! The heads of the Pikmin are glowing, and they seem extremely agitated."

"The ultra-spicy spray appears to increase Pikmin speed and attack power! What a discovery!"

Burgeoning Spiderwort mold[edit]

"What is this? A strange, moldlike botanical entity has spread across the ground here.

Interesting. I am detecting other plant life suffocating beneath it."

Challenge Mode unlocked[edit]

"This object seems familiar. I will combine it with the president's parallel-dimension controller.

ALERT!!! Sensors indicate a massive dimensional shift at a distant location.

I'm receiving a message from a far-flung dimension. Displaying the message now...

"Challenge Mode can now be accessed from the title screen."

It appears to be total gibberish. Hopefully the message has reached its intended recipient.

I will name this apparently worthless device the Key."

Debt Repayment[edit]

"Mission complete! You've earned 10,000 Pokos!

Now Hocotate Freight will be prosperous and debt free until the end of time! ...Probably.

Prepare to blast off! We return to Hocotate triumphantly!"

After Debt Repayment[edit]

"Mr. President! You've arrived! My scans indicate this planet is still heavily laden with treasure!

We shall make Hocotate Freight the golden, indisputable king of king of deep-space, long-haul freight!

Then everyone will gaudily clad in gold, like me! ...No. I am unique. And beautiful. Yes.

Olimar, I must ask that you take extreme care so as not to insult or endanger our president.

For now, where could Louie be? To be stuck on an uncivilized planet with no food at all..."

Waterwraith[edit]

"What is this?!? I can see it with my optical receptors, but my sensors cannot detect it!

Could its physical form be anchored in another dimension? ...Attacking it is futile!

If only we could force it to take on physical form... But in its current state... Krzzzt-zrrrk!

Danger! Danger! Danger!"

Titan Dweevil[edit]

"Is that Louie?!? Mr. President! I have located Louie resting on a vast mound of treasure!

For him to venture to those depths alone... The desire of a man is a thing to be feared!

...But Louie is not moving. Could he have exhausted his strength in reaching these depths?

There may yet be time. Quickly! To Louie's aid!"


"Louie? ... ...

... Are your life functions fading? ...

No! He appears only to have fainted! He is always running into trouble...

Instruct the Pikmin to carry him. There is not enough room for him in the cockpit anymore.

We will have to keep him in the cargo hold with the treasure hoard."

Post Pikmin extinction[edit]

"Disaster averted! All your Pikmin were wiped out yesterday, but their Onion just released a seed!

If Pikmin were machines, they could simply be repaired, but... This single Pikmin is a precious rarity. I advise you to take better care of it."
