The Universal Com (ねぼけまなこモニター?) is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is found on the twelfth sublevel of the Dream Den, completely buried in the ground. Falling rocks, gas pipes, dangerous enemies, and an Antenna Beetle will make retrieving this treasure difficult, so clear the level before looking for it. White Pikmin are needed to get this treasure. This item is actually a shiny blue bead mounted on a silver-colored ring.
“From the shape of it, I've concluded that this is some kind of data transmission monitor. However, Louie and the ship keep telling me that I'm way off target. I told them, "If I'm so wrong, what do you think it is? I don't see you suggesting any alternatives!" They're just being negative. I'm going with my gut feeling on this one.”
“This communications monitor was found on an uncivilized planet! Sadly, it is broken and does not work. As such, its purpose cannot be confirmed. Yet...that only heightens its irresistible appeal. Reality...or misperception? Either way, you should buy it!”
