Collecting the treasure[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

The Air Brake is found on a ledge in the southwest corner of the area, near the Snagret Hole. Collecting it requires solving a puzzle with seesaw blocks. Before starting the puzzle, it is recommended to defeat the nearby enemies, which include Yellow Wollywogs in the adjacent water and Burrowing Snagrets on the carrying path back to the landing site. Blue Pikmin are required to collect the treasure, as it is found next to water.

To collect the treasure, the player should move 15 Blue Pikmin and one leader on the seesaw block nearest to the treasure, and 16 Pikmin on the seesaw block further away. This will cause the nearer seesaw block to rise, and from there, the Blue Pikmin can be thrown up to the treasure.

This treasure can also be obtained without using the seesaw blocks by throwing Yellow or Purple Pikmin with a running start from the nearby island between the two bridges.


Olimar's journal

The weather was beautiful today. In this region, the weather is always good. The plants and animals thrive on all that sunlight. I want to hurry up and finish cataloguing all of these treasures so I can get back to the sunshine.

Sales pitch

No height is too great to fall from if you possess this. It may be frightening, but get over it.
