In the Forgotten Cove, the use of Bomb Rocks will become key. Effectively use them to destroy iron walls and defeat enemies in order to score high points.
Many Pikmin will be required for retrieval in this mission, so be sure to efficiently use your Pikmin. After defeating the Baldy Long Legs, a lot of fruit will drop from it, making transportation work especially tough. Devise a plan to send reinforcements if necessary.
First, retrieve Red and Yellow Pikmin and use the Go Here function to head to the southern area where Yellow Pikmin are growing. Upon arriving, pluck them and defeat the Fiery Blowhog located to the southeast of the starting area with Red Pikmin. Pull up the Red Pikmin in the back when you are done.
When starting with Alph, pluck the Blue Pikmin and head to the upper area via the geyser. Throw a few Pikmin at the hole and use the remaining numbers to charge attack the Waddlepus. While they are attacking it, go retrieve the Yellow Pikmin on the right-hand side.
Once you have retrieved the Red Pikmin, descend down to the top of the rock. From there, throw Yellow Pikmin at the 2 holes while also calling back the other Yellow Pikmin. After obtaining some Bomb Rocks, use one defeat the Medusal Slurker and one to destroy the iron wall.
After that, have the Yellow Pikmin destroy the electric gate and use the remaining Pikmin to continue retrieval work.
Next, retrieve the Waddlepus with Yellow Pikmin and throw the remaining Pikmin fruit in the north and the Climbing Stick. Then use the Go Here function to head towards the northwestern area where the Blue Pikmin are located. After arriving, use 1 Bomb Rock to defeat the Bearded Amprat and defeat the nearby submerged enemies with Blue Pikmin and Bomb Rocks.
After this, start retrieving everything. Use any leftover Blue Pikmin to retrieve the Nuggets nearby.
Have Olimar progress towards the east and throw some Red Pikmin to collect the Nuggets. After departing with your Pikmin, use the Go Here function to head east where the Blue Pikmin are located. Upon arriving, use the Blue Pikmin to defeat the nearby enemy and continue retrieval work.
Gather the Pikmin left by Alph and use Bomb Rocks to destroy both the rock and iron walls. After destroying them, reunite with the Yellow Pikmin who destroyed the electric gate and go defeat the Baldy Long Legs. Afterward, have Louie take charge of retrieval work.
Have Alph move to the corresponding West side of the starting area and defeat the submerged enemies while also retrieving the fruits.
Lastly, retrieve the fruits which are the Seed Hive, Dawn Pustules, Dapper Blob, Scaly Custard, Juicy Gaggle, Heroine's Tear, Crimson Banquet, and Fire-Breathing Feast. Plus the nuggets and enemy bodies in the various remaining places. There are also fruits in fairly far places, so we recommend one leader to use the starting area and assist.
