Pikspore/ Captain Upgrades
This article contains information that relates to the non-canon game PikSpore, which was created by Neini, a user on this Wiki.
These are the upgrades you can get in PikSpore, awarded when you defeat bosses.
This useful device is just like the Treasure Gauge from Pikmin 2. It beeps louder when you're closer to a treasure, and it malfunctions when an Antenna Beetle is nearby. It is awarded for defeating the Snitchbug Queen.
These heatproof gloves allow captains to carry Bomb-Rocks, a useful defense against strong enemies. It is awarded for defeating the Burrowing Sand-nit. Be very careful, as you can still be hurt by the explosions.
As a reward for slaying the enormous Puffire in the Scorch Cavern, you find out that the treasure it had dropped contained fireproof elements that prevented it from melting inside the beast's molten stomach. Parts of the treasure are added to your suit, allowing you to walk around in fire completely unharmed.
Defeating the Mossy Long Legs in the deepest corner of Altitude Springs awards you a strange chunk of metal. Upon examining it, the Ship discovers the metal is completely acid-proof, and it incorporates it into your suit. You are now immune to water and acid damage.
As the mighty Emperor Bulblax in the Jungle Tunnel falls to the ground, it regurgitates a strange object. The ship exclaims that it can be used to amplify sounds, including the whistle! Your whistle radius is larger now.
Unleashing your final blow on the Ranging Bloyster in the Concealed Aquatica, it melts into pink slime, leaving nothing behind but a fist-like stone. Equipped to your suit, you can now unleash a powerful punch upon enemies, similar to the Rocket Fist from Pikmin 2.
One of the best upgrades, you are given this once the terrifying Smoky Progg in the Aquatic Ruins combusts to death. It allows you to uproot planted Pikmin with a blow of your whistle! This is useful for cultivating Pikmin using Mamutas.
After deactivating the Underground Device by defeating the Cephalanx, a rubbery object appears. Once incorporated into your suit, you will be immune to electricity and, if you have the Iron Fist upgrade, will electrocute enemies slightly.
Once the Burrowing Snarrow lurking within Mystic Marsh is slain, a plate-like object is released. With this upgrade, you will be covered in a protective bubble every time you use the Iron Fist upgrade's attack.
Probably the best upgrade ever, the Artificial Incubator is awarded when you defeat the Obelisk Of Hate in Challenger's Cavern. Once inserted into the ship, it allows you to grow Purple, White, Black and Cyan Pikmin inside the ship! Extra pellet colors are added, as well.
More to come!
