Have Olimar head to the south area of the cave with many Blue Pikmin. If you defeat enemies while progressing to the west, you will come across some Purple Pikmin holding a Bomb Rock. Call them and have them join your squad. Use the Bomb Rock and defeat the Spotty Bulbear. It will spit up Louie so be sure to retrieve him.

While defeating the enemies, throw a few Pikmin at the Nuggets and have them retrieve them.


While Olimar is exploring the inside of the cave, use the Go Here function and have Alph and many Blue Pikmin head to the northern area where a Sunseed Berry can be seen. Retrieve the fruit while also defeating the Bulborb. Also be sure to take the Bomb Rock that is inside the hole.

After taking out the Bomb Rock, head to the iron wall that is located to the east of the starting area.
