The Crunchy Deluge (シャクシャクノミ?, lit.: "Shak-shak Fruit") is a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is an Asian pear. There is only one in Story Mode, and it is located in the Twilight River, where it is underwater and guarded by a Toady Bloyster. This means it can only be retrieved by Blue Pikmin. This fruit produces a total of two containers of juice (one in Ultra-Spicy mode). The Crunchy Deluge makes three appearances in Mission Mode, all in the Thirsty Desert Remix, and is worth 100 Pokos. Although identical to the Astringent Clump in weight and juice provided, they are different fruits.

Collecting the fruit[edit]

Brittany's notes

US version US version
Lots of juice in here, like having your mouth flooded in sweetness. Not much Piktamin U, but nutrition isn't everything. Sometimes you just want a natural disaster of flavor, you know?
European version European version
Lots of juice in here, and it's like having your taste buds washed away on a tide of sweetness. Not much in the way of Piktamin U, but nutrition isn't everything. Sometimes you just want a flood of flavour...
