Pikmin 4 Olimar's Shipwreck Tale Guide

After defeating Pikmin 4, you unlock Olimar's Shipwrecked Tale, which pays homage to the first Pikmin game. While this game mode provides a lot of fun for all Pikmin players, it can be challenging as you need to collect 30 parts within 15 days. This is twice as fast as in the first game and presents even greater challenges, but you have Moss by your side to assist you.

The most challenging part is to pre-plan and determine the best order for everything. Ultimately, you'll need an ample supply of Flarlic and various types of Pikmin to fulfill all your needs. It is crucial to know where everything is located. By benefiting from this guide, you will be able to complete the story and utilize your knowledge to excel in the main game.

Pikmin 4 Olimar

You must start in this area of the game, as it allows you to accomplish everything at once if you don't wish to visit the other areas yet. However, Blue Pikmin will make the whole process easier for you.

Begin at the first base and travel southwest. You'll find it to the south, but there'll be an enemy that prevents you from taking it. To defeat it, throw your Pikmin when it breathes in through the blowhole, then throw them onto the weak point.

Return to the second base. You'll go to the fire pit you used to get the first part of this area. Take it to the fire pit to the south and activate it. You'll then build the bridge south of the fire pit. Throw a Red Pikmin onto the fire pit, then follow the west wall while traveling south.

Once you do, you'll go north and throw the Pikmin at the hay. Doing so will reveal the Blue Onion, and you can get it once you pull it out of the ground.

This is a water-themed area, so it's important to build up your army of Blue Pikmin before heading here.

Third Base

Travel northeast from the base, then go south when you reach the water. Make your way up the slopes until you get to the top. You'll encounter a large boss here that you must defeat to access the base.

You'll defeat this boss by waiting for it to shoot out its tongue, then you'll throw Pikmin at it and charge with Moss when you can. The boss will also perform a roar move that scatters all your Pikmin, so quickly whistle at them to get them to return.

Once you defeat the boss, you can access the base. You can also use your various items from your pack to make the fight easier.

Simply head east of your base and keep going until you enter the water. Continue east to the end of the water, and you'll find it on a platform. You must use your Blue Pikmin to bring the part back.

Blue Onion

Start at the second base and go northeast. You'll eventually find a cave under the slopes you use to reach the third base, and it has the Blue Onion. If you collected the other Blue Onion, this'll just give you Pikmin.

All Ship Parts In The Hero's Hideaway

This area has only two bases, so it will be incorporated into the first part of this area as you need to activate them to obtain the part. In this area, there is also no Flarlic or Onion ships, so focus solely on the parts.

Part 30

Begin at the last part and travel to the southwest corner. You'll use the platform to fly down, then go west and press the button. This'll activate the fan to the west, so hop onto it.

Go to the southern portion of the counter. You'll encounter a boss that shoots missiles, so run around it in a circle until it stops. Once it does, throw Pikmin at it, call them back when it shakes them off, and repeat until it's dead, giving you the final part.

What Parts You Should Get On Each Day

If you want a general guide to help you progress through the game, you can follow these steps to obtain all the parts within the given time frame. This walkthrough is not intended to be optimized but rather to assist you in acquiring all the parts within the time limit without rushing, allowing for some flexibility. For instance, if you know what to do, you can easily complete the Hero's Hideout in two days. Therefore, feel free to collect more parts in a single day if you wish.

However, make sure to obtain two parts on the first day and then stay in the Blooming Arcadia until you acquire all the Pikmin types and Moss, so that you can progress through the rest of the mode without any detours.
