The Pocked Airhead is a fruit found in Pikmin 3, and is a dekopon, a seedless, sweet variety of mandarin orange that resembles a tangelo. It is found twice in Pikmin 3's story mode, both times buried in the ground. It produces two and a half cups of juice (one and a quarter in Ultra-Spicy mode), despite its small size and weight. The fruit is also found once in Mission Mode, in the Clockwork Chasm, where it is buried near a Yellow Wollywog, and is worth × 300.
Collecting the fruit
The Pocked Airhead in the Tropical Wilds is located right outside of base, past the dirt wall and reinforced wall. It is buried in the ground, so use Yellow Pikmin to dig it up faster. Note that a Whiptongue Bulborb is near the fruit, and a Hermit Crawmad is nearby, so take care of those creatures first.
Garden of Hope
The Pocked Airhead found in the Garden of Hope is located behind an electric gate across the bridge that was built on day 2, to the right of the sleeping Bulborb. While Yellow Pikmin are destroying the gate, be sure to kill the Bulborbs so they will not get in the way of Pikmin carrying the fruit back. After breaking down the electric gate, there is a Fiery Blowhog guarding it, so bring some Red Pikmin to collect the part. It is also buried in the ground, so you should use Yellow Pikmin can dig it up faster.
“When we opened this one up, I was curious what we'd find in the funny head at the top of the fruit. Turns out, nothing. So it's got a thick skin, with a big head that doesn't actually have anything inside. That's why I named it for the captain (hee hee!).”
“When we opened this one up, I was curious as to what we'd find inside the funny head at the top. Turns out, it was empty. So, it's thick-skinned and has a big head with not a whole lot going on inside. Hmm... Reminds me of someone in this team...”
