Forgotten Cove Tips and Strategy

Use Bomb Rocks Effectively

You can save a significant amount of time by defeating enemies using Bomb Rocks. Carefully choose a position where you throw a Bomb Rock so it attracts multiple enemies and take them all out at once.

Forgotten Cove Platinum Medal Walkthrough

1: Collect Pikmin


Pulling Red Pikmin.jpg

Gather the Red Pikmin and throw one at the Fiery Blowhog to your right. Defeat the Dwarf Orange Bulborb north of the dirt wall and pluck the Rock Pikmin.

Defeat more Dwarf Orange Bulborbs southeast, break the crystal with some Rock Pikmin, and grab the Bomb Rocks inside.


Collecting Blue Pikmin.jpg

Pluck the Blue Pikmin and collect all the pellets nearby. Pluck the new ones then move them west near the Orange Bulborb.

2: Defeat Enemies

This is probably the hardest part as you have to make sure the Bomb Rocks don't land in the water. Throw one near the Waddlepus, one between the Fiery Blowhogs up north (if one survives, take it out with your Pikmin), and the last one near the Yellow Wollywog

Defeat the Dwarf Orange Bulborbs nearby and the Medusal Slurker at the center then head north near the large crystal.

Destroy the crystal, grab the bombs, then head west near the Peckish Aristocrab.



Defeat the Waddlepus on the left of the bucket then sneak behind the Orange Bulborb to defeat the Dwarf Orange Bulborbs.

Head south and defeat the Watery Blowhog.

3: Wipe Out the Rest

Feed a Bomb Rock to the Aristocrab then throw the remaining bombs at the Orange Bulborb near the lake then the other at the Orange Bulborb south (make sure the bomb destroys the dirt wall as well).

Destroy the crystal in the middle of the lake but don't grab the bombs. Head south and take out the surviving Dwarf Orange Bulborbs.


Bug-Eyed Crawmad.jpg

Defeat the Puckering Blinnows then grab the Bomb Rocks from the broken crystal. Throw a bomb between the two Wollywogs and take out the last with your Blue Pikmin.

Gather everyone south, have the Bug-Eyed Crawmad devour the two Bomb Rocks, then throw all your Pikmin at it when it's turned over.
