Lesser Mock Bottom
The Lesser Mock Bottom (コシリソックリ?, lit.: "Just Like a Little Butt") is a fruit in Pikmin 3. It is a Japanese plum, and is found in the Tropical Wilds, Garden of Hope, and Twilight River. It gives one bottle of purple-pink juice (one half in Ultra-Spicy mode). In Mission Mode, it is worth 50 Pokos.
Collecting the fruit
The Lesser Mock Bottom in the Tropical Wilds is found near some Pyroclasmic Slooches. From the small bridge near the land site, turn right and go past the waterfall. There will then be a dirt mound, and beyond that, some Pyroclasmic Slooches. There will be a cluster of Spotcaps, and next to them is the fruit. Make sure to have taken care of the Hermit Crawmad near the base to assure an easy collection.
Garden of Hope
The Lesser Mock Bottom in the Garden of Hope is in the second half of the area, accessible only after Louie runs off. Near where the pot-shaped bridge is/would be is a high ledge with a Flukeweed. With at least 3 Winged Pikmin, charge the Flukeweed from under the water. If the teacup is built, it is possible to throw a leader over with some Winged Pikmin, but charging should be enough to retrieve the fruit.
The Lesser Mock Bottom in the Twilight River is in the area where Winged Pikmin are discovered, hidden under a Flukeweed. It is under the Flukeweed closest to the river and requires three Winged Pikmin to uproot. Simply have the Winged Pikmin carry the fruit over the river to the S.S. Drake.
“This fruit's flesh is soft and pale yellow. It's juicy and has a sweet-sour flavor. I must also note that it's shaped almost exactly like a baby's bottom. While the scientific merit of this observation is debatable, the adorability is not.”
