The Pocked Airhead is a dekopon, a seedless, sweet variety of mandarin orange that resembles a tangelo, and is found twice in Pikmin 3's story mode. It is typically found buried, for whatever reason, and produces two and a half cups of juice, despite its small size and weight. There is only one in Mission Mode, on the Clockwork Chasm. There, it is buried near a Yellow Wollywog, and is worth 300 Pokos.

Collecting the fruit[edit]

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies presented may not be the only ones or the best ones.

Tropical Wilds[edit]

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[edit]

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.


Brittany's notes

US version US version
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...
