The Positron Generator is a ship part in Pikmin that is found at The Impact Site. It is a green, rounded object with two golden antennae on the top. Olimar mentions he uses this to make "Instant Space Noodles".
Collecting the PartEdit
Taking three Yellow Pikmin, go to the Cardboard Box that was pushed out of the way on Day 1. Throw or swarm the Pikmin inside the box to pick up at least three Bomb Rocks; use these to destroy the stone wall found up the ramp on the tree-stump. If the day is day 8 or over, a Mamuta (even-numbered day) or Goolix (odd-numbered day) will be in the center of the massive tree stump, so be sure to defeat before progressing further. To create a faster route back to the S.S. Dolphin, knock down the white gate to the left of the shore now, then withdraw at least twenty Blue Pikmin and attack the Pearly Clamclamp in the water, to the left. Have your twenty Blue Pikmin take the part back to the Dolphin once it is free.
"I've found the Positron Generator! By combining its batteries with solar cells, this machine can generate incredible amounts of electricity. What a timely find! Those Instant Space Noodles will taste better when heated up."
"This electric generator is so powerful that if you approach it carelessly, you'll get an electric shock!"
- When Olimar retrieves the Positron Generator, he says in his notes that if you approach it, you can receive an electric shock. However, neither him nor the Pikmin can be damaged by it in-game. It is probably powered down or broken.
- The Positron Generator can be seen in the Enemy reel in the Distant Spring, when showing the Wogpoles.
- There is a rare glitch that is known to happen invloving this part. If collecting this part gains you access to The Distant Spring, sometimes the propeller-like fan that comes out of the S.S. Dolphin when the Distant Spring is unlocked will appear in the cutscene, but will not be visible on the S.S. Dolphin itself for the rest of the day.
