The Stone of Advancement (進歩の原石?, lit.: "Stone of Advancement") is a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is actually a Cobalt Game Boy Advance SP. It appears to still be functioning. It is found in the Rescue Command Post as one of the three treasures needed to kickstart the S.S. Shepherd.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

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

The Stone of Advancement is on a high platform to the west of the S.S. Shepherd. To knock it loose, you need to charge into the wall with Oatchi. After a brief cutscene, you will be able to collect the treasure, provided at least 7 Pikmin are brought after discovering the Red Onion.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

Notice how resplendent the blue of this slab is! It's called "cobalt blue." The pigment is extracted from an ore renowned for honing one's intuition, intelligence, and reflexes. Yes, the more I gaze upon it, the more advanced I feel myself become.

Olimar's notes[edit]

Space is a funny place. You can be using the latest in galaxy-navigation technology and still find yourself lost in a sea of space trash. But that's life, isn't it? If you want to advance, you've got to be flexible. This also applies to settling marital disagreements.

Louie's notes[edit]

It opens. And then it closes. That's pretty fun.
