Treasure! Treasure! Treasure! Money! Money! Money! Money!
—The Research Pod, Pikmin 2.
If the player chooses to leave by selecting the option in the pause menu, the Pod will drop all treasures and creatures that were collected and return to the surface with the captains and Pikmin. This also happens automatically if all Pikmin die or both captains suffer too much damage, and cannot be stopped without resetting the game. The discarded treasures will be returned to the sublevels they were found in.
