The Pilgrim Bulb (ラッパユリの球根?, lit.: "Trumpet Lily Bulb") is a treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is actually the sprouting bulb of a trumpet lily. However, judging from its appearance, and by the fact that the sales pitch seems to be making a reference to the real world tulip mania of the 1600s (and Olimar's craze with the treasure in his journal), it is possible that it is actually the bulb of a tulip.

Collecting the treasure[edit]

It is found in the Awakening Wood, and is located on top of a flower pot, completely buried underground. Because of this, White Pikmin are required to dig it up. The flower pot is located just west of the landing site, near the Iridescent Flint Beetle.

Notes

Olimar's journal

Grassy plains and meadows on this planet are carpeted with brilliantly colored flowers in bloom. When I entered the atmosphere on my descent from space, I was stunned by the vibrant sight. The other day, a group of white Pikmin under my command detected an object buried under the surface and immediately began to dig up this colossal flower bulb. Somehow, it hadn't yet sprouted into a towering flower. I plan to take it back to Hocotate and grow it there! My people will hail me as a botanical genius...and the mayor may even make me Supreme Flower Commander!

Sales pitch

Life finds a way across galaxies. Can a plant from a primitive planet take root in Hocotate's soil? Won't you invest in this romantic pursuit?
