Location Dream Den

The Universal Com is a treasure in Pikmin 2. It is found on the twelfth sublevel of the Dream Den, completely buried in the ground. Falling rocks, poison pipes, dangerous enemies, and an Antenna Beetle will make retrieving this treasure difficult, so clear the level before looking for it. White Pikmin are needed to get this treasure.

This item is actually a shiny blue bead mounted on a silver-colored ring.


Olimar's Journal

"From the shape of it, I've concluded that this is some kind of data transmission monitor. However, Louie and the ship keep telling me that I'm way off target. I told them, "If I'm so wrong, what do you think it is? I don't see you suggesting any alternatives!" They're just being negative. I'm going with my gut feeling on this one."

Sales Pitch

"This communications monitor was found on an uncivilized planet! Sadly, it is broken and does not work. As such, its purpose cannot be confirmed. Yet...that only heightens its irresistible appeal. Reality...or misperception? Either way, you should buy it!"


  • In his notes, Olimar mentions Louie telling him that his (Olimar's) analysis of the treasure is most likely incorrect. However, the treasure is found in the Dream Den, meaning that the likelihood of Louie currently not being part of Olimar's mission when these notes are taken (as he was trapped at the same cave's lowermost sublevel at the time) is very high, calling into question how Olimar could have ever gotten that opinion from him.
