This article is about the white grapes in
Pikmin 3. For the red grapes, see Dusk Pustules.
The Dawn Pustules (ミドリタワワ?) are fruits found in Pikmin 3. Each fruit consists of a bunch of white muscat grapes, and the entire cluster is worth one bottle of juice. Two clusters of Dawn Pustules are found in story mode: in the Distant Tundra and the Tropical Wilds. The Dawn Pustules, along with their counterpart, the Dusk Pustules, are unique in the way that they are obtained: they are collected like fragments, being individually plucked, with Pikmin returning to the grapes until all have been collected.
In Mission Mode, the Dawn Pustules appear in four stages: the Tropical Forest Remix, the Thirsty Desert Remix, the Beastly Caverns, and the Forgotten Cove. An entire cluster is worth 400 points.
Collecting the fruit
The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.
The Dawn Pustules in the Distant Tundra.
The first cluster is found in the Distant Tundra, on a tall ledge next to two Swooping Snitchbugs to the southeast of the landing site. A climbing stick must be built for the Pikmin so they can return to the Dawn Pustules, and the Swooping Snitchbugs – along with a Joustmite and a Fiery Blowhog – must be defeated in order to let the Pikmin safely collect the grapes.
The Dawn Pustules in the Tropical Wilds.
The other cluster of Dawn Pustules is in the Tropical Wilds, next to a reinforced wall across a body of water. Destroying this wall, along with destroying another reinforced wall next to the landing site, building a bridge across the water, and defeating a Whiptongue Bulborb are necessary for collecting these Dawn Pustules.
- US version
“These little spheres have it all: smooth skin, delicious juice, a nice smell... They're almost perfect, except that exact shade of green is the captain's, like, favorite color of all time. He painted his room, his fingernails, and (I heard) even his dog this color. Bleh.”
- European version
“In colour and shape, these remind me of the Captain in his stupid green suit. Lots of little Captains! Eugh. Luckily, the resemblance ends there. Smooth skin, subtle scent, refined taste. Not like the Captain at all, then!”
