Valley of the Breeze
Valley of the Breeze (かぜのふく たに?) is the second main area in the Leafswirl Lagoon. it takes place inside a cave with multiple vertical shafts. These shafts have Sparklium Seeds, treasures, and enemies in them, so Captain Olimar has to be carried downward slowly by the Winged Pikmin in order to reach every nook and cranny. Some parts of the cave also have gusts of wind that throw Olimar in specific directions. At the final room of the area, if the player quickly makes their way to the left, they can land on a branch that takes them to a secret exit, which opens up the path to Gale-Force Glen. If not, they will have to land on the floor and go through the normal exit, that leads to Downpour Thicket.
Right at the start, the player can call 8 Winged Pikmin, that are coming from two bushes. Those Pikmin are needed to go down a huge hole filled with Hydroe brambles. During the descent, the player can call some Winged Pikmin, hiding in a bush placed on a wall of the hole. There are also some drafts, that deviate Olimar during his descent. However, the player needs to be close to the right wall of the hole to get access of the Slimmerized Cell.
At the end of the hole stands a Mockiwi. After this, there is a second hole, filled this time with Coppellers holding some Sparklium Seeds. At some point in the descent stands a small aperture in the left, leading to a doorway. On the other side, there is a breeze that goes upwards, and allows the player to retrieve the Probable Teapot. After that hole is a third one and, once again, the player has to go down in order to make progress in the area. This gap is filled with Spiny Coppellers and Hydroe brambles, so the descent may be more difficult than the previous ones. If Olimar manages to enter the aperture in the right wall of the hole, he can call some Winged Pikmin and retrieve the King's Sanctum, thanks to a breeze. After this, the player just has to keep going down until the end of the hole, while being careful of the many Spiny Coppellers that stand in Olimar's way.
