One of my ideas that I have for a Pikmin 3 DLC is a pack for the story mode, kind of acting as a direct sequal to Pikmin 3.
The DLC will include Captain Olimar, Captain Louie (obtained slightly late), the President, and (in the Beginning) Alph (only until an event later in the story)
Plot / Goal
At first the goal of the game will be to retreave Louie since in the end of Pikmin 3, he escapes. The second goal is to repair the S.S. Hocotate. The third and last goal is to fulfill the debt, supposedly caused by the President.
Story / Intro
Olimar will return to his home planet, hocotate, where he meets up with the President, meanwhile Alph, Charlie, and Brittany, are all standing behind (they came with Olimar to explain what happened to Olimar and why Louie is abscent.) Olimar tells the President how the S.S. Hocotate Freight is totaled and that they have no way of returning. Alph at this point offers to help them out on their transportation problem and be their pilot until they fix their ship. The group at this point, flies to Kopai to drop off the Brittany and Charlie with the seeds and then flies back to PNF-404. The landing (once again) is quite a bumpy landing and so the President and Olimar are sent flying. Olimar lands relatively close to Alph and the Drake in an area bearing a resemblance to the Garden of Hope, the one difference being, it's autumn now, the President lands in an area that looks very much like the Forest Navel, where Day 1 starts.
Day 1 is once again a tutorial as usual. You start out in a similar beginning to Pikmin 3 in the way that you instantly are faced with a color that isn't red pikmin, but this time you meet up with the blue pikmin first who you meet in the same exact spot that Olimar meets blue pikmin in Pikmin 1.
On this day, the only enemies encountered on day one are Swarming Sheargrubs and Watery Blowhogs.
Unfortunately there isn't any way to escape the cave so the President desides to go and hide in a new, deeper area in the cave where, just as in Pikmin 3 he meets up with a Phosbat cave and soon finds out that he is on the menu.
Meanwhile at the Crash site of Alph and Olimar, Olimar wakes up in some strange area full of Pikmin, Red Pikmin, who instantly go to Olimar at sight of him. Olimar now picks up a signal from Alph, who says that the two are close and that Olimar should make his way over. The only enemies that can be seen here are a Nectarous Dandelfly, Female Sheargrubs, and an Iridescent Flint Beetle.
This would be the garden of hope, but in the fall, one key difference is that there would be more areas that could be opened up in this version due to the fact that since it's autumn, most of the plants are withered.

This is the Awakening Wood/Forest of Hope combined with the very large, Forest Navel. (This combination of the two is naturally a factual thing since Olimar found the forest Navel inside of the Forest of Hope in Pikmin 1.) The Glacial Grotto is where the President lands. The differences in the cave are small, but in the forest much has changed since Olimar's visit in Pikmin 2, it is winter now, and so some things are frozen over. this is the place where the Yellow, Blue, and Rock Pikmin are found. (You can't get all three on the same day.)
