The Hollow Sky
The Hollow Sky (みあげる おおあな?) is the secret area in the Sparkling Labyrinth. In this cave, there are two tall shafts that can be climbed up standing on top of a container that's being slowly pushed up by a geyser of water. Throughout the climb, there are dirt blocks, crystals, and other obstacles and enemies in the way. The player must clear the path away and be careful not to get crushed between the container and the obstacles.
The area mainly consist of a big ascent from the bottom to the top of the cavern. Right at the beginning, the player can call some Yellow Pikmin. Olimar will have to use them in order to bury a wooden stake. After that, the player will begin the ascent. The protagonist just has to be careful with the many crystals, Crumbugs, dirt and cobblestone blocks on the way. At the end of it, the player can enter a small hole to the left, thanks to the jetpack. At the end of the small path, a doorway can be found, leading to the Well-Loved Gauge. To retrieve it, the player has to avoid a lot of Crumbugs. After this, the player can begin a new ascent, harder than the first one. At the end of it, the player can go to the left. If Olimar has at least 16 Pikmin, he can bury the huge wood stake and get access to the second treasure, the One-Way Time Machine. Right after this, the exit waits for him.
