The Professional Noisemaker is a giant red megaphone head, a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is found on the final sublevel of the Submerged Castle, and is held by the voracious Waterwraith. When Olimar retrieves the Professional Noisemaker, the Pluckaphone, part of the Exploration Kit is made functional by The Ship.
The Pluckaphone is a special item that powers the pilots' whistles with the ability to call Pikmin sprouts out from the ground, saving precious time that would otherwise be spent plucking them out. As well as picking newly produced Pikmin at the Onions, this is useful for calling out Pikmin that were planted by a Mamuta or Swooping Snitchbug, or transformed by Candypop Buds.
In the first trailer for Pikmin, Olimar is seen calling Pikmin from the ground, so the Pluckaphone may be an implementation of a pre-release element from the first Pikmin game.
"I recently took a team of blue Pikmin on an expedition to explore a submerged cavern. While exploring this watery cavern, I encountered some very strange phenomena. It was such a strange place that I'm still wondering it is was all just a dream. I found this curious treasure in that cavern, so if it was just an illusion, I'm even more confused. I named that confounding place the Submerged Castle."
"Noisier than a spaceship, this wonderful item will make your miserable life 120 percent more exciting."
The Ship's Dialogue
"Processing... How curious. The wraith completely vanished! But what was it?"
"Surface-object scans indicate the presence of a bright red component!"
"How insulting... This object's coloring is more eye-catching than my own hull!"
"I shall connect it to the alarm clock our esteemed president was so fond of."
"Processing...complete. I have refitted both objects into a Pluckaphone."
"Now, simply blowing your whistle will inspire Pikmin sprouts to pop up out of the ground."
- The Pluckaphone ability was origanally called the Pluck Megaphone.
