This article is about the bottom half of a shell. For the top half, see Scrumptious Shell.

The Memorial Shell (一生の証?, lit.: "Proof of a Lifetime") is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is actually the bottom half of a scallop shell, with what appears to be a small pearl or water drop forming on the inside surface. It likely forms the counterpiece to the Scrumptious Shell. It can be found on the third sublevel of the Citadel of Spiders.

Collecting the treasureEdit

The following article or section contains guides.
The strategies shown are just suggestions.

The Memorial Shell is found on sublevel 3 of the Citadel of Spiders and is completely buried in the ground, so White Pikmin are required to dig it up.


Olimar's journal

I've observed several species of shell-dwelling creatures inhabiting the Perplexing Pool. One of these feisty beasts forms a spherical gem within the meaty depths of its shell. In a way, this gem could be considered this creature's lifework. I consider my children my life's work.

Sales pitch

All that remains of a monster shellfish is a sparkle, the sole proof of its existence. Does this not make you want to treasure it?
