The following article or section is in need of assistance from someone who plays Pikmin 4.

Missions are objectives for the player's character to complete throughout Pikmin 4. These are given by either Rescue Corps members or by rescued castaways, typically within the Rescue Command Post hub area once they've been rescued.

There are two types of missions: Main Missions and Side Missions.

Main MissionsEdit

Main Missions are the main objectives the player must complete. They are usually story related with simple goals requiring the player to progress through the game normally to complete. These are often given by members of the Rescue Corps.

Rescue All Castaways Shepherd This mission comes with a counter that keeps track of the player's castaway count (not including members of the Rescue Corps).

Olimar's Shipwreck TaleEdit

Olimar's Shipwreck Tale contains the single mission Escape Planet. It is divided into four levels with the objectives of recovering 2, 8, 23 and finally 30 ship parts for the S.S. Dolphin. The first three coincide with the unlocking of the Blossoming Arcadia, Serene Shores and Hero's Hideaway respectively.

Side MissionsEdit

Side Missions are objectives that aren't necessary to complete, but reward the player with things like raw materials for doing so. These are often given to the player after talking to rescued crewmates and castaways in the Rescue Command Post. Other quests are only unlocked once the player has completed a previous quest first.
