The Life-Form Prototype is a treasure found in Hey! Pikmin. It can be found in the Pollution Pool area. It is a vacuum tube. It is quite a small treasure, having a very low weight of two, and only being slightly taller than Captain Olimar. He mistakes the treasure for a robotic creature, possibly mistaking the poles on its bottom for legs, and the glass near its top as a head.
Collecting the treasure
The following article or section contains guides.
Just to the left of the exit of the second set of doorways is a vine that needs Yellow Pikmin to pull down. Climb up the vine and enter the doorway to the left. The treasure is located on the top screen, so throw two Yellow Pikmin to have them carry it. Wait for them to carry the treasure over the wooden stake and throw one Pikmin at it to bounce the treasure and the Pikmin carrying it to the higher platform. The Pikmin will carry the treasure over a ledge on the right, allowing it to be collected.
One should avoid, though, pushing the wooden stake to its highest level. If this happens, the Pikmin carrying the treasure will be bounced away, leaving the treasure behind. The Pikmin won’t pick the treasure up again. In this state, it will become very difficult or even impossible to collect.
