The Shock Absorber is a ship part found in Pikmin. It is located in The Forest of Hope and is protected by a Red Bulborb on a ledge. The Shock Absorber counteracts the shaking and swaying during space flight, making the flights taken by the Dolphin much smoother. When collected, this part does not change the ship's appearance.

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

Starting from the landing site, go to the left through where the breakable gate was. Toss Pikmin on the ledge and then walk up the slope in the nearby pool of water to rejoin them. Pikmin can also be thrown from where the Nova Blaster is. Defeat the Spotty Bulborb and then claim the part, located just next to it.To make it easier, try taking Blue Pikmin through the water to launch a rear attack on the Bulborb.


Olimar's monologs

It's the Shock Absorber!

This apparatus counteracts the shaking and swaying that normally occurs during flight. It's smooth sailing with this in place... Usually.

This nifty little device counteracts the shaking and swaying experienced in typical space flight.
