The Thirst Activator is a treasure found only in the US version of Pikmin 2. It is found on a ledge near the Furious Adhesive, and is often located near the patrolling Gatling Groink on sublevel 7 of the Subterranean Complex. Bomb-rocks are plentiful in the area and can be used to defeat the Groink, after which the body should be retrieved immediately to ensure that it doesn't regenerate later while the Pikmin are busy with a task. The player may also choose simply to lure the Groink off the edge of the field into the abyss below to avoid having to deal with the corpse. It is actually a lid to either TreeTop brand apple juice or apple sauce.

Olimar's journal

How odd... When I gaze at this puzzling pattern, I have a vision of nature. At first I thought this planet's ecosystem was alien and unnatural... But now I've learned to fully appreciate its beauty. However, it still can't compare to the stunning natural landscape of Hocotate. I hope I can return to my homeland soon.

Sales pitch

Natural beauty fills this design, and merely viewing it incites a riotous thirst. How about it?
