In the Japanese version, it is a green, wooden milk bottle opener instead.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The treasure is found near the landing site in the Perplexing Pool. It lies on top of a tree trunk. The trunk is rather large, so it is only accessible to Yellow Pikmin, or Purple Pikmin thrown at the right angle, with a long throw.


Olimar's journal

Yellow Pikmin are infatuated with high places! They seem to love it when I toss them high in the air. Once, I hurled them up to a high area, and they came down with this treasure!

Sales pitch

More shocking than a lightning bolt! Faster than a light mote! Able to crush rocks in one bash! This device can clear any impediment in one fell swoop!
