Ivory Candypop Buds are white Candypop Buds found in Pikmin 2. They act the same way all other Candypop Buds do, but they will produce a White Pikmin for every non-white one that is thrown in, up to a maximum of five. Candypops are the only method to obtaining White and Purple Pikmin. If White Pikmin are thrown in buds, they will be reverted to leaf stages, and won't count against the five Pikmin limit per Candypop Bud.

Many Ivory Candypop Buds are found in the White Flower Garden on Sublevel 3 as long as the player has less than 20 White Pikmin, and on Sublevel 4 of the Subterranean Complex, as well as three more spread throughout the Frontier Cavern.

Olimar's notes

Research from our most recent expedition has confirmed the presence of candypop buds in subterranean regions. Considering the micro-ecologies this plant has been found in, one could surmise that it could be found in any cavern, regardless of geographic regions. Tossing Pikmin into this flower always produces white Pikmin seeds, regardless of the color of Pikmin tossed in. In many cases, plants with small leaves typically have limited photosynthetic capabilities, and thus must find alternate means of obtaining nutrients, with parasitic and predatory behavior being most common. The candypop could be considered one such example.

Louie's notes

This elusive flower spoils within seconds of picking, making it unsuitable for cooking.
