Music Olimar's Comeback (days 7-8)

Looking for Louie is the seventh day of Olimar's Comeback. It takes place in the Twilight River, with the unique objective of reuniting Olimar and Louie.


Immediately after the events of Channel Gone Dry, Olimar realizes that half of the fruits they collected on that mission are missing, and deducts that Louie ate them. Olimar, in response, snaps at Louie about his excessive appetite, prompting Louie to run away. Louie winds up separated from both Olimar and most of the Pikmin, leaving Olimar guilt-ridden. Throughout the mission, Olimar laments his temper and states that he has some "soul-searching" to do, and admits that Louie's "not a bad guy."

Once the two are reunited, Louie apologizes for his appetite and Olimar apologizes for being so rough on him. Olimar's daily report ends with the hope that he can find enough food in the future "to keep him in line," noting how he also ran away after the Koppaites rescued him.


This day takes place in both major sections of the Twilight River, along the namesake river. After the water's disappearance on the previous day Channel Gone Dry, the river has filled up again, though it is still not flowing. The upstream area is inaccessible save for the central peninsula where the Koppaite crew lands in Story Mode; most land on the southwestern side of the river and the Scornet Maestro's tree downstream are also blocked off.

Captain Olimar starts next to a Yellow Onion in the river's southeast section, in what serves as a Burrowing Snagret's arena in Story Mode. Louie starts next to a Red Onion in the Koppaites' old landing site upstream. Separating the duo are several reinforced walls and packs of enemies, the former of which can only be destroyed by bomb rocks. Fortunately for Olimar and Louie, their starting points give them easy access to a pair of seesaw blocks, which can be used to lift Olimar up to a dirt mound containing starter bomb rocks. On Louie's side, a dirt mound containing bomb rocks for him lies on ground level next to the seesaw block.

Let’s get down to brass tacks. All that matters here is getting through as many walls as you can, as fast as you can. Don’t waste time fighting wild creatures unless they’re gnawing on you, in which case you have my permission.


Mission Log, Day 7: I may have been too hard on Louie last night about his excessive appetite. Letting my emotions run away from me was wrong both as a pilot and as his mentor. Not that he’s blameless here, of course, but it’s my duty now to go find him, wherever he’s run off to. Once that’s taken care of, I have some soul-searching to do about my temper.

Assignment Report[edit]

When I finally found Louie, he claimed to be sorry for what he did, but I’ll keep a close eye on him all the same. He went missing after the Koppaites rescued him too and turned out to have made off with all their food. For all that, this planet is dangerous enough that it’s good to have a partner around. Hopefully I can find enough food to keep him in line.
