|Treasure Hoard Number|| 137 (NTSC)
|Maximum Carriers||6 Pikmin|
The Aquatic Mine is a yellow and red fishing bobber and a treasure in Pikmin 2. It's found in the Perplexing Pool, not very far from the landing site, inside a Toady Bloyster. Blue Pikmin may be used to get it, or destroying the rock formation covering the Shower Room entrance to drain the lake; once that's done, Purple Pikmin become ideal for slaying this creature when thrown onto its back in large numbers. Defeat any Shearwigs along the path before trying to move this treasure.
"I've recently noted that changes in this planet's environment happen at a very rapid pace. Compared to how it was when I was here before, the Perplexing Pool has changed drastically. Due to frequent tectonic shifts, the region appears slightly different each time I enter it. It could be a natural phenomenon, but it's as if I feel the presence of a guiding hand. ...Maybe it's just my imagination running wild."
"This is an incredibly dangerous aquatic explosive, which has fortunately never detonated. None know its true destructive power, but this could well be the most cataclysmic weapon ever."
