Creature Hunting (原生生物大掃除?, lit.: "Primitive Creature Cleanup") is the second day of Olimar's Comeback. It takes place in the Tropical Wilds, with the objective of defeating every enemy on the map.


Olimar hones in on a signal within the Tropical Wilds, which he believes is one of the missing ship parts. However, the area is swarming with many Bulborbs, Bulbears, and other enemies native to the area (with the exception of the Bearded Amprat). Olimar comments that they landed in the "wrong spot", and that they touched down some distance from the Onion, implying that they walked to the Onion after they landed. While it has only been a day since their last visit to the area, it has been drastically altered by the lack of water.

At the end of the day, Olimar does not locate anything, leaving whatever signal he detected unidentified. He comments on the loyalty of his Pikmin and his difficulties keeping them safe.


Most of the mission takes place near the Story Mode landing site and Sandbelching Meerslug's arena. The water in the area where the Koppaite crew crossed over to fight the Meerslug is gone, and several enemies have moved into the now-dry depressions. There are walls blocking Olimar and Louie from going into the area which contained Dusk Pustules in Story Mode. There are also several enemy species that are not usually found in the Tropical Wilds, such as Spotty Bulbears.

Timing is everything! If you can’t throw those Bomb Rocks just right to take out the strongest creatures, I don’t know what else to tell you!


Mission Log, Day 2: We’re homing in on a signal that might be coming from one of the ship’s parts. But the way there will take us across an area swarming with Bulborbs. Still, I don’t see any other way to progress with our mission, so we’ll have to face the danger head-on and do what we can.

Assignment Report[edit]

Well, we didn’t find the ship we came for. It’s tough to keep the Pikmin safe through the constant attacks from this world’s inhabitants, but they’d do anything for me, so I have to do what I can for them. Besides, I’m not so bad off. I have the benefit of experience, decent equipment, and Louie. With all that, I should be home with my family in no time.
