It's The President's birthday! He's overexcited about Olimar and Louie's visit, while he's loud wife chatters about something her friend did in book club. When the doorbell rings, The President run to meet he's beloved employees. But the biggest surprise turns out to be his gift, and not de balloon Louie got wrong that says "It's a boy!". Happy and excited with whatever can be his gift, The President and Olimar run to the open deserts of Hocotate as he finds out he's getting... a brand new shinying airship! He's own rocket!
Almost crying of excitation, The President turn on his rocket for the first time and is amazed by his speaking voice. But they're party moment is over when The President's wife calls everyone inside due to a suspicious dark cloud showing up in the horizon. She smells something weird, and it isn't Louie's underpants! Her expectations come true when the dark cloud start spitting thunders, and a wild hurricane shows up! Dying of desperation, The President runs toward his rocket to save he's newest friend!
But... Bad idea. The hurricane sucks he and his recent named friend Mayor (he's left arm in adventures AND politics) and spit them out in a sunny part of Hocotate. The President awakes and is informed by his computer friend that it has been days he was out of his system. Desperated, The President looks around and can't see nothing but a huge mountain! What could have hapenned? Where's everyone? What about his house, Olimar and Louie? Ah, oh, of course, he's lovely wife?! There isn't time to cry, Hocotate needs to be rebuild!
So let's go, Mayor! Treasures wandering about in the mighty space are just waiting to be collected! Turning everything in gold, maybe The President could buy a new everything, isn't he right? Trying to push away the feeling that he might have lost his best friends and life companion forever, he soars the clear skies after hurricane and disappear in the beyond...
He's adventure had just begun.
After collecting every single treasure in the unknown Pikmin planet, The President decides it is time to comeback. If he's friends where there waiting for him, he didn't know, but with all the money in his pocket, he was definitely going to buy a hot tub! What? Can't a man of business relax? Soaring again the clear skies and saying goodbye to his fellow Pikmin friends, adventure awaits in what was once Hocotate.
But what? Everyone's here! He's wife, Olimar, Louie, everyone! But how? Did everyone survived the hurricane? Louie points to the horizons and shows the mountain. Following the logic, Louie supposes that The President think that everything vanished while THE MOUNTAIN was blocking his vision sight. What a bommer! All that gold and for nothing? Three hundred and sixty five days have gone by, and The President realizes that is his birthday again!
With Hocotate back on his trails (that's what The President thought), he uses all that money in a worldwide party! Let's celebrate sucess!
After The President solved the puzzle about the ending of Hocotate, he thinks on going back to the Pikmin planet with the thought that there maybe more treasure up there, after the briefly realization that he spent a serious amount of money. He takes Mayor and soar through the skies. A few minutes before reaching his regular landing location, he receives a strange calling to his ship. Something, or someone, is calling for him!
Using Mayor's machine intelligence, The President finds the location of the calling. It's a strange and small part of land, lost in the middle of the ocean, and shaped like a Star. Wondering why he had never found this place, The President realizes that this little island is part of the Pikmin Planet, but is very far away from it, and decides to go investigate, despite Mayor's desperate calls for him to go elsewhere.
After a few days searching through the lands of Star Plais, The President finds a weird cave which emate darkness from it. Mayor points out that he's latest researches about dark matter and the creation of Universe reminds him of that weird cavern. Decide to discover more secrets, The President hops in... But he barely knew what was expecting him inside that dark, dark hole...
What Happens Next?
After adventuring himself inside the Dark Zone, The President reaches a secret room. He sees a unknown little person playing with computers, but when it spots The President, it runs away, initiating the self-destruct mode. Five seconds later, The President uses his e-mail to send Olimar and Louie a snapshot about the time everything blew up and he was send away along with Mayor.
And later, awaking on the... MOON? (From here, the happenings of The President's Adventure 2: Galaxy Explorers begin)
The main character in the game. Now, and for the first time, The President has his very own adventure, and without Olimar or Louie's help. Nothing changes from his physical characteristics since Pikmin 2. He's voice actor changes depending on the game country. This wasn't present in Pikmin 2, and the North American version of the game featured the same voice actor from the Japanese version. This is now changed.
The President stays the same old chubby "little big boss". He's voice is squeaky and funny for every single voice actor. He's body formats change during the effect of certain upgrades. He's dressing options are basically the same. After the game is beaten and The President returns to the Pikmin Planet for the Star Plains saga, he changes into a gold costume, which is an upgrade acquired before the happenings of Star Plains, but The President only get to wear it in the Star Plains saga. Therefore, the upgrade only begins to count during the final game part.
The President has a loving wife known as The President's wife, for some reason. He hears her yelling every single day, due to her being a loud woman. Despite her poiting out every single mistake her husband makes, The President still see her as he's loving wife.
Olimar and Louie are The President's employees and, apparently, best friends. They share adventures together and the three are the only humans now until know to be able to bond and fight with their Pikmin by side. Rumor has it that The President and Olimar met in his bachelor's party. Until today, they're close friends.
Mayor is The President's rocket. He's a machine, but with a computer voice to have a more connection with his pilot. Mayor is male, despite The President seems to not know that. Sometimes, when The President chickens out and need to be cheered up, Mayor uses a computer program and a female voice to make him do whatever he wants in share of coming out to him. The President still hopes a "lady" will appear from somewhere, but don't let his wife know about it.
Kletus is The President's deceased fish. During the opening birthday cutscene, while The President's wife screams about him, she points at a dead fish's corpse floating on a bowl. That used to be Kletus.
Like in Pikmin 2, the player will find different areas and caves to be explored in a hunt for treasure. Each one have a way to be unlocked, being it beating a cave, defeating an enemy or finding a single treasure. There are six areas overall and eighteen caves. The special area, unlocked after finding all the treasures and completing Piklopedia have two caves only. This means a total of seven areas and twenty caves.
The main protagonists in the game, The President's Adventure bring new, as well as the old Pikmin, both avaliable in the Story Mode and Challenge Mode.
- Red Pikmin: Your fire resistant partner.
- Yellow Pikmin: Your shock resistant buddie.
- Blue Pikmin: The Pikmin that isn't afraid of getting his feet wet.
- Purple Pikmin: The toughest of them all!
- White Pikmin: Your poison resistant fellow.
This game features three new types of Pikmin. One of them is breed with a Candypop Bud, one of them is breed by leaving a dead enemy's corpse alone during nighttime and the last one is breed by defeating a special enemy.
From the Super Mario series, meet the Tanookimin. A special Pikmin wearing a Tanooki Suit, can run faster and fly for a small period of time by opening his squirrel-like wings when thrown by a captain. He's breed by throwing a regular Pikmin into a Animal Candypop Bud. It's a mystery on how those candypop buds produce the suit to transform Pikmin.
The undeads return! Meet the Skull Pikmin, the most rare Pikmin in the entire game. To make one of those creatures, you'll need to leave a dead enemy's corpse all by itself and return to that place the next day. It is possible that the corpse will be taken away by a hungry animal, but, sometimes, it will give away examples of the Skull Pikmin. The most interesting fact about that is that they can't die. If striked by an enemy, they'll become pieces. Just take those pieces back to a random Onion and it will return as a Pikmin of that Onion's color.
The shiny Pikmin! Are they made of gold? Are they made of dark matter? Nobody knows. It's a secret how the Gold Pikmin turned out the way they did, but they just look like regular Pikmin. The way to produce Gold Pikmin is to defeat the rare and wild Golden Bulborb. It can be something they eat, because when they're defeated, instead of their corpse, Gold Pikmin gets generated.
