The "Sales pitch" option can be accessed by pressing GCN Y.png / Wiimote Minus.png.

The sales pitch is a collection of, as the name suggests, sales pitches for treasures in Pikmin 2. They are provided by the Hocotate ship in contrast to the description provided by Captain Olimar, and are generally humorous rather than detailed.

At times, the ship creates stories about the objects which they are selling in an attempt to get them to sell better. For instance, it claims that the Fossilized Ursidae may come alive under a full moon, or that the Essence of Despair was created as the result of the forces of evil being defeated by the forces of justice.

Any given sales pitch comes with a group, and becomes available once that specific group of treasures has been collected. An example of this would be in the Crystallized Emotion Series; all marbles in the game must be collected before their sales pitches are provided.

Sales pitches are exclusive to the Treasure Hoard, as Louie takes the place of extra info provider for the Piklopedia.

Example[edit]

Superstick Textile

The latest must-have item for all ship emergency-repair kits, this miracle fabric is a lifesaver! Its adhesive power is so great, once it's applied, it can never be removed... Not even surgically!
