Serene Shores is the third main area in Pikmin 4. It is set on a beach, with many rock pools and other bodies of water. The area contains a large sandcastle as a focal point, with many pathways to scale it.

Uniquely, this area will change depending on the time of day, with the tide shifting to lower water levels at midday. This area has Icon that represents Sparklium on the wiki, based on the icon found in Pikmin 4. × 7,945 worth of treasure, of which Icon that represents Sparklium on the wiki, based on the icon found in Pikmin 4. × 3,255 is above ground.

Plot[edit]

The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 4.
Particularly: Describe plot points in this area, if there are any.

After collecting more Sparklium, Collin detects more signals from a beach area. The Red Leafling is here with another castaway.

Layout[edit]

The following notable features can be found in this area.

  • Sandy and rocky terrain.
  • Low-lying vegetation.
  • Palm trees in the distance.
  • Large pools of water.
  • A sandcastle occupying the southern section.
  • small mossy areas

Bases[edit]

  • Blossoming Dunes: This is the default landing site, found to the right of the sand castle.
  • Water's Edge: This base is unguarded by creatures, but is covered with sand. It can be found towards the map's center, past the pools of water.
  • The Sand Keep: This base is guarded by a Crusted Rumpup at the top of the large sandcastle near the player's initial landing site.

Caves[edit]

Dandori Challenge 1[edit]

Found in the elevated area of the level, accessed only through the exit of the Engulfed Castle. The entrance to the Dandori Challenge is in a nearby alcove past the Whiptongue Bulborb.

Dandori Challenge 2[edit]

In the large body of water where the Slapstick Crescent and the Giant's Fossil are found, the entrance is hidden in some seaweed. Because its entrance is fully submerged, it is the only Dandori Challenge or Dandori Battle cave without a cutscene encounter with the Leafling of the level, instead simply opening the hole like any regular cave entrance. Oatchi will also emerge regularly from the hole, landing on the seabed and only floating to the top of the water once the exit cutscene has ended.

Dandori Battle[edit]

A Dandori Battle can be found near the 1st base, Blossoming Dunes. To the left, the cave's entrance is surrounded by water. As the player and Oatchi are immune to water, they can simply travel up the slope to access the entrance. However, to transport the castaway earned from completing the battle safely, it's recommended the bridge connecting the cave to the mainland is built or the water surrounding it is frozen.

The Serene Shores is the third area Captain Olimar explores in his Shipwreck Tale.

Plot[edit]

Captain Olimar lands in the Serene Shores to continue his search for any missing parts for his ship, the S.S. Dolphin. He manages to find eight of his missing pieces with the help of the Pikmin and the space dog Moss.

Layout[edit]

The layout of the Serene Shores in Olimar's Shipwreck Tale is almost identical to that of the one in the main game. The major differences are the objects and enemies present, along with the caves entrances not being present. The upper area, to the north-west, is inaccessible during Olimar's time here as the Engulfed Castle cave is not present.

Bases[edit]

  • Blossoming Dunes: Two Whiptongue Bulborbs can be found by this base, but you can still move base without killing them.
  • Water's Edge: This is the default landing site upon first visiting.
  • The Sand Keep: A Sovereign Bulblax guards this base.

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only aboveground area in Pikmin 4 where Purple Pikmin are recommended for use.
  • If the water is frozen when the tide changes, it will become unfrozen in the cutscene and go down like normal. The Ice Pikmin freezing it will simply drop down to ground level when the cutscene is over.[1]
  • The large body of water on the eastern side of the area becomes seperated into two seperate bodies after the tide lowers, however the game still considers them to be one body of water. This can be observed by throwing Ice Pikmin into them, which will cause both bodies to freeze regardless of which one they're thrown into.
