Obtaining the treasure
This sublevel contains many Bulborbs: up to six of them can be found, and up to two of each of the following species can be found: Orange Bulborbs, Red Bulborbs and Hairy Bulborbs. However, the treasure will always be found in an Orange Bulborb. To find it, the player can use the Treasure Gauge to locate the treasure. Then, the player should use Purple Pikmin to quickly defeat the enemy. If they are not an option, an ultra-bitter spray can be used to petrify the creature before awakening. If two Orange Bulborbs are to be found next to one another, the player can reset their game if they do not want to risk losing Pikmin. Finally, although this sublevel is not very big, it is sometimes possible to find the other Bulborbs on the way to the Research Pod. These creatures should be either eliminated or petrified until the treasure is retrieved. Eventually, it should be noted that some eggs can drop from the sky in dead ends, which can help the player for the next and last sublevel.
