Collecting the treasure[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

The Faux Fishy is lying on a platform at the northwestern edge of the Primordial Thicket. It is guarded by a Bogswallow, which should be defeated before attempting to collect it, although it is not necessary to do so. To collect this treasure, you must first use 30 Ice Pikmin to freeze the nearby mud, then use 20 Pikmin, preferably Winged Pikmin, to collect the treasure.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

A sacred fish created to amuse and comfort the ancient gods. They would submerge the fish in a heavenly spring and while the hours away pretending to catch and feed it. It would seem the gods had blessed themselves with way too much free time.

Olimar's notes[edit]

I'm much more used to seeing fish painted in profile instead of from the top down. I suspect this is supposed to float on the water, but I'd be quite startled to encounter a fish like this under normal circumstances.

Louie's notes[edit]

This fish is too hard to chew. Inedible.
