The Time Capsule (メモリアル・カプセル?, lit.: "Memorial Capsule") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is actually a golden locket with a Welsh Corgi, and is found on the fourth sublevel of the Citadel of Spiders.

The dog, named "Gon-chan", belongs to an unnamed graphic designer for Pikmin 2. In the Japanese version, the Time Capsule instead contains a picture of Wataru Yamaguchi's cat, "Chi-chan".[1]

Collecting the treasure[edit]

The Time Capsule is found on Sublevel 4 of the Citadel of Spiders. Some enemies may need to be defeated once it is found.

Notes

Olimar's journal

This must be some kind of a memorial capsule left by a lost civilization. It has left behind some image data, but I can't make any sense of it. I'm going to have to do some additional analysis. I'll document any exciting new developments in my log, along with pages and pages of meaningless doodles.

Sales pitch

This shiny pod was found buried like a time capsule, holding image data of unknown origin. Is it possible that you fathom the data's import? This riddle will entrance all puzzle lovers!
