This ia juat a assumption but I believe the ship was made in 2968(AD) because look when it launches of it produses a lot of Carbon Dioxide and it makes a lot of noises Yoshi March 20 2007

In Super Mario Galaxy, a ship resembling both the Dolphin and the Ship is seen. It is longer, slender, and looks well made (more so then then olimars ships) it is red and white, and has 2 seats, nearly identicle to the ones on the Ship. Should I include this is the Ship article? Ufourtunatlry, I can't take in-game screenshots.. Or wait, I may be able to. If I can, it would be very crappy.

From what I saw on a trailer, that's the S.S.Dolphin, though of course, there could be both. I'll be able to take a picture when I get Super Mario Galaxy (hopefully Wednesday) and get that far in the game. GP

I got Super Mario Galaxy, it does strikingly resemble a mixture between the first and second Pikmin Ships. Me just in 00:00, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

Should we include it in the article? If so, which one? Both? Also, how do you make a sig >.>?

Do you think you could add accurate information to both pages, then, Me just in? And I'll get the pictures when I can.
To sign a post, put '~~~~' after it, which will append a default sig plus date and time. Use 3 for no date/time and 5 for only the date/time ('~~~' and '~~~~~'). You can create your own custom sig by creating and editing User:your username/sig (add '/sig' to the URL at your userpage then edit to create it), then ticking 'Raw signatures' in your preferences, then putting {{User:your username/sig}} in the box above. GP

Adding the information now, (I laughed at the links being "both" and "pages" [it could just be because its 11:31 p.m./23:31 right now]).Me_just_inEarly Mushroom Pikmin.jpg04:31, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, it really wasn't funny... GP

If you look cloosly when you firstland on yhe planit in pikmin2 you can see what looks like an angel on the side of the ship thus its real name my be the ss.angel.

I have super mario galaxy it's incredibly fun. I totally recamend it. Yes I have seen the s.s. dolphin there. but it does look diferent.--Thomas 00:18, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Err... That got really close to an ad. Please don't post about other games here.

I think the ship in Super Mario Galaxy is actually just The Ship, seeing as it doesn't have all those attachments. And I read somewhere that it is the S.S. Angel, so I call it that in my story in the General Forum. And about Super Mario Galaxy, yes, it's incredibly fun, but that was way to close to an ad, Rednosedpikmin.Pikdude 23:22, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I think it does look more like The Ship, but I've never seen a completed version of the S.S.Dolphin to compare colours. Maybe it should be removed from that other article, but I'll leave it to someone with Pikmin 1. GP
Coincidentally, my friend got this game for christmas and showed it to me (she kept dieing, then I tried and suceeded without a loss. I think I've been gaming too much in the holidays). The S.S. Dolphin has a ochre-brown colour and has all the extra instruments whirling and flying around, but it does display the 4th stabalizer. However, the Dolphin comes out so minor that it shouldn't be mentioned. I'll change it.--Prezintenden

In the end of Pikmin it shows a completed S.S. Dolphin. The one in Super Mario Galaxy isn't even close to it.Pikdude 03:25, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

The ship in Galaxy has very minor resemblances to Olimar's. It is the same color. That's it. I think the image on the page is a Beta image as well, because the one in the game has no windows. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but it's not the same ship. InfectedShroom.I removed the info akin to this on the MarioWiki, but I thought we should debate it before I totally remove it. ;)

No, it has the double windows in the final game. It was the same ship. Mcoolister Creeping Chrycooleum.png T, C, R

Really? I still think they're different-looking... InfectedShroom.


Can we get a picture of the "Golden Model"? ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ 11:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

If spoiler-warned, yes. I'm not taking it, however. Quality would be revolting.--Prezintenden 13:26, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
There's a picture of the gold Research Pod on the Louie page (why there I don't know), but we could use a picture of the whole ship. —Jimbo Jambo

look what i found!!![edit]


its the ships logo as seen in brawl and, from a distance, Pikmin 2!! should it go in the article?

Yeah, the image was added to the article. Thanks for uploading the picture. —Jimbo Jambo

i found something else[edit]

The ship in galaxy has a dent, pikmin 1 reference anyone!

...No. I'm ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ And I approve this message.

...Meteor.Thegloober216 14:52, 30 August 2008 (UTC)

It could be a Pikmin 2 refrence when they hit the branch... Don't add it either way... I'm ~CrystalRedpikminsprite.jpgLucario~ And I approve this message.

guess wat[edit]

i found something out its not the ship its The S.H.I.P. im not going to say wat it means you will all have to find out yourselves (Ysyty 00:22, 6 July 2009 (UTC)) ysyty,outYsyty 00:22, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

IMPOSSIBLE! If S.H.I.P. did mean something, then how come this wiki doesn't say so...exactly.--215617.gifPikmin fan 101215617.gif

Then don't keep it a secret. Write it in the article! Twinmold.pngSnakeboss14Twinmold.png

Possible names for The Ship[edit]

  • The Hunter
  • S.S. Hunter
  • S.S. Treasure
  • S.S. Shark (lol)

Speculation, indeed, but, there is no need for such language. I thought it was the S.S. Angel; anyways, it will undoubtedly be revealed to us later. Until then, confine speculation to a forum. 12:38, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

No, not really, it wasn't speculation. I was just coming up with cool names for it.Falcoz 20:14, January 21, 2010 (UTC)

@pikdude, I know what your quote comes from, But what does Anthrax meanR to the P to thePikirbies.PNGWyb.
Middle East: Home of Iraq, Saddaam Hussein- King of Anthrax. We did find some nuclear warheads there, people, so stop dissing George Bush (if you do diss him).Pikdude200px-Mario you phail.gif 00:46, January 29, 2010 (UTC)
Like Obama? Gosh, I didn't know this country had enough retards for him to win elections.R to the P to thePikirbies.PNGWyb.
Did you not see my deliberate move to make this page shorter? And yes, this country has enough retards, and the non-retards were lied to and manipulated.Pikdude200px-Mario you phail.gif 23:25, January 29, 2010 (UTC)

This has nothing to do with the ship but seriously, Lonley Turret do you need to swear against every single user and on every single talk page? Pikifan4 (talk) 10:33, 1 February 2016 (EST)


Move to "Hocotate ship"? Since it's not exactly a name, just a description, so "ship" shouldn't have caps. GP

Agreed. Although it looks a bit bad without a capitalized "Ship", it's more correct that way. {EspyoT} 15:50, 28 March 2011 (EDT)
Yeah, pretty much what Espyo said. It's correct, but it looks kind of strange to have the title uncapitalized. People expect anything that talks to have a name. Vol (Talk)

Development name[edit]

I'm not sure this should be labeled as an alias in the opening sentence - IMO, those are only for common names people actually use. Trivia? GP 19:07, 20 November 2011 (EST)

In a way, this is an "official" name. But I don't expect people to use it. Heck, far from it. Putting this as trivia, or putting next to the other names it is called is basically the same thing. But it's just that there is nothing that says fun facts should be in their own section. Wikipedia even discourages that. We aren't Wikipedia, but that little fact could still remain in the first paragraph. We could go for votes as to whether it stays or goes to the trivia section, though. {EspyoT} 09:35, 21 November 2011 (EST)
Iunno, I just think it's weird to have a name used at some point in the development process listed straight off as if it's an alternative name. GP 13:09, 21 November 2011 (EST)
It kind of brings the development team's info straight into the canon. We need to squeeze out as much info as possible. That's why it feels kinda ok in the opening paragraph. I suppose this is on the edge of being canon and being just trivia. {EspyoT} 18:37, 21 November 2011 (EST)
I think I'm with Green. It's interesting, but only just that. I wouldn't really consider an obscure development codename to be very canon. —Jimbo Jambo 02:12, 23 November 2011 (EST)

Comment by AquaYoshi on 6th August 2014[edit]

Are we really sure the ship Olimar piloted was the one we saw destroyed in Pikmin 3? As there's no concrete evidence it is and I'll like to believe the President (Being Greedy like always) takes the golden Pikmin 2 ship for himself and leaves Olimar with a new Hocotate ship. - AquaYoshi (talkcontribs)

The paint could have easily have came off when they got ambushed by the Mireclops. - AeroBlaze777 (talkcontribs)
