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 may 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, the two are quite different fruits.
Collecting the fruit
The Crunchy Deluge is found in the Twilight River. It is found underwater at the very end of the river in the southernmost part of the region, guarded by a Toady Bloyster. Kill or distract the Bloyster and retrieve the fruit with Blue Pikmin.
“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?”
