The Whimsical Radar is one of the ship parts found in Pikmin. It is the only part that has another function besides helping the Dolphin run, allowing Olimar the ability to see all ship parts and Pikmin in the area with just one glance at the monitor of the Dolphin. The Ship in Pikmin 2 also appears to have a radar.
"It's my Whimsical Radar! With this, I'll be able to see all nearby ship parts in a single glance—I just press Y to check it. This find fills me with great hope."
"This important part can detect the locations of the other missing parts. The radar will be added to my monitor, which I can press Y to view. C zooms in and out. This will surely help me in my search for the remaining parts!"
Collecting the PartThis part is to the right of where the Yellow Onion is first found. It is resting on a ledge that any Pikmin can reach. Destroy the stone gate using the nearby Bomb Rocks, then defeat the Dwarf Bulborbs and Spotty Bulborb. Its sonar can be heard ringing as Olimar approaches it, so it is very easy to locate. You can also opt out of using more bomb rocks by going around behind your base into the area crawling with Male and Female Sheargrubs. After killing all harmful enemies, you can throw Pikmin onto the ledge and allow them to carry the Whimsical Radar back safely.
