Wistful Wild is the final area that can be accessed in Pikmin 2; it is made available once the Hocotate Freight company's debt has been fully repaid. It is one of the most dangerous areas, containing enemies like a Gatling Groink and Orange Bulborbs. It contains five treasures above the surface which total 3205 Pokos, and three caverns for a total value of 13295 Pokos (13285 in the PAL version of the game). The design of this area is a combination of The Impact Site and The Final Trial from Pikmin. It is also a representation of autumn. Contents of the region include two large lakes, one of which can be drained and the other bridged; a clearing with three randomly-colored Burgeoning Spiderworts; and rusted metal structures, tree stumps and Foxtails. As with all areas, different variations of music play while breaking down a gate, building a bridge, or approaching an enemy.

- Every 30 days beginning on Day 31, one can see insects called Ujadani. Appearing as swarms of very small crawling orange bugs, they release poison occasionally if attacked, and have an extremely small amount of health. Each one drops a blob of nectar or spray when killed. They are found in two locations: near the Dream Den, and on the same stone as the Hole of Heroes.
- It is possible for a Captain to get up onto the wall borders of the map via several enemies, including the Decorated Cannon Beetle and Watery Blowhog.
- The ship and Onions land on a faded yield sign.
- The Dream Den is located in the same place that the Dolphin's engine was found in the first Pikmin game, and the landing area is the arena of Emperor Bulblax.
- The Wistful Wild is the only area in Pikmin 2 to not have an above-ground boss fight.
- The Wistful Wild was originally going to be called the Land of Promise. The italian name of this area, "Terra di Promesse," is a literal translation of Land of Promise.
- Similar to how there is a meteor shower on the area map when you unlock The Final Trial in Pikmin, there is a meteor shower on the area map when you unlock the Wistful Wild.
- Wistful means a feeling of vague or regretful longing, which makes sense considering Louie has been left behind.
