The Mock Bottom (シリソックリ?, lit.: "Just Like a Butt") is a fruit in Pikmin 3 and a treasure in Pikmin 4. It is a peach. In Pikmin 3, there is only one in Story Mode, in the Tropical Wilds, and requires Blue Pikmin or Winged Pikmin to obtain. In Pikmin 4, two exist, one in the Serene Shores and another in the Primordial Thicket.

Collecting the fruit

The strategies shown are just suggestions.

The Mock Bottom is found on top of a waterfall in the Tropical Wilds. To get this, you will need either Blue Pikmin or Winged Pikmin. With Blue Pikmin, order the Pikmin to build the climbing stick. Once it is complete, they will automatically pick up the fruit, which only requires 10 Pikmin to carry. Do note that if Blue Pikmin are used, they will carry it through the small pond in which many Puckering Blinnows reside. Take them out before collecting the fruit.

If you choose to use Winged Pikmin instead, they must not build the climbing stick. If they climb it, and are unsupervised, they will fall into the water and drown. As such, it is easier to lock-on to the object from nearby, and order the Winged Pikmin to collect it. It may be a bit hard to reach, but it is still possible.

Serene Shores

There is a Mock Bottom inside of a plastic pail near the center of the overworld, to the east of the sand castle's entrance. It is partially submerged underwater at high tide, and completely exposed at low tide. It is guarded by two Skeeterskates and a Pricklepuff, which should be defeated before attempting to collect this treasure. To collect this treasure, you must throw 12 Blue Pikmin or Winged Pikmin at it during high tide, or 12 Pikmin at it during low tide.

Primordial Thicket

There is a Mock Bottom stuck inside of a toxic sticky mold near the bottom right of the overworld. To collect this treasure, you must first use White Pikmin or a poison-resistant Oatchi to destroy the mushrooms to remove the mold; then, throw 12 Pikmin at it.

Notes

Brittany's notes

US version icon.png US version
Sigh. The specimen is slightly fuzzy, has a high juice content, and has a hardy pit that should travel well back to Koppai. And as a scientist, I cannot and should not remark that it looks almost exactly like a bottom, hee hee! Sigh. The specimen is slightly fuzzy...
European version icon.png European version
Skin: pink colouration, fuzzy texture. Flesh: soft, with a high water content. Stone: large, robust. Appearance: looks like a bottom! Tee hee hee!

Schnauz's notes

What's most impressive about this fruit is the way it's sweet in both flavor and aroma. Meanwhile, its pretty pinkish-orange coloring is lovely to behold. Of course, one can't ignore the shapely curves reminiscent of... eh... Good manners dictate I say no more. Suffice it to say, the Mock Bottom is quite a sensory experience.

Olimar's notes

Extremely sweet! Almost too sweet... The flavor makes you feel drowsy with joy, and you want to soak in those joyful juices forever and ever... I may need to limit my intake when it comes to this fruit.

Louie's notes

To enjoy this fruit, all you need to do is take a big bite and let its sweet juices flood your taste buds.
