The Orbital Communication Sphere is a treasure in Pikmin 4. It can be found in the Blossoming Arcadia, Serene Shores, and Cavern for a King. It is a golf ball with the word "MARUFUKU" written on it in black, and a "1" written in red below.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

Blossoming Arcadia[edit]

There is an Orbital Communication Sphere inside of a dirt mound on the far eastern side of the overworld. To collect this treasure, you must throw 5 Pikmin at it. For ease of mind, the nearby Creeping Chrysanthemum should be defeated.

Serene Shores[edit]

There is an Orbital Communication Sphere hidden in a patch of grass on the sand on the central western section of the overworld, in a small lake. It is submerged during high tide, and is guarded by two Water Dumples. To collect it, you must throw 5 Blue Pikmin at it during high tide, or 5 Pikmin at it during low tide.

Cavern for a King[edit]

See also: Arctic Cannon Beetle#Strategy.

There are three Orbital Communication Spheres inside of an Arctic Cannon Beetle at the southern edge of sublevel 4. To collect this treasure, you must first defeat the Arctic Cannon Beetle. Then, throw 5 Pikmin at each treasure.


Schnauz's notes[edit]

This communication sphere has fallen from its place orbiting the planet. Note how the bumpy surface was designed to maximize transmissions. A pity that it is no longer functioning. Hmm, perhaps a blow with a large stick could launch it back into orbit.

Olimar's notes[edit]

Its hard outer shell could withstand severe environments, but the inside appears to be unexpectedly soft. The geological layers are breathtaking. If I had to guess, I'd say this is a scale model of a celestial body. I just can't explain why I want to hit it with a stick.

Louie's notes[edit]

Hold it tightly between your arms, and roll. Feels amazing.
