The Face Wrinkler (トキメキノミ?) is a common fruit found in Pikmin 3. It's a lemon that is worth 70 points in Mission Mode. It fills one and a half containers of juice, and is seen multiple times throughout Pikmin 3's main story.
Collecting the fruit
The following article or section contains guides.
Garden of Hope
The first one is found during the tutorial in the Garden of Hope, where the player is taught how to throw and switch between leaders. Simply throw Brittany and 5 Pikmin up onto the higher ledge so they can reach it.
The second one is found buried in the sand near the Shaggy Long Legs' arena and the body of water with some Wogpoles. Simply have Yellow Pikmin dig it up, or use bomb rocks to instantly unearth it. A pair of Skutterchucks and a Whiptongue Bulborb are present along the route back to the Drake; it is advised they are defeated before the Face Wrinkler is collected.
The final Face Wrinkler is found on a small ledge behind a large stump with a Dapper Blob on top. It can be harvested with Blue Pikmin, which will carry it through the water, but this will require you to remove a nearby dirt wall first, and later clearing the nearby pond of all enemies. If you don't, the Blue Pikmin will take a longer route back involving some Joustmites. Alternatively, you can just swarm it with Winged Pikmin, who will fly it directly to the Drake.
