Emergence Cave is the first cave the player comes upon in Pikmin 2, and is by far the easiest. Purple Pikmin are first encountered here, which are needed to collect a certain treasure to progress to the next area. In this cave, there are 480 pokos worth of treasures.
Past the large field where a Red Bulborb lies, you need to destroy a white gate, beyond which lies the cave.
The first sublevel of this cave has two treasures, which are guarded by a few Snow Bulborbs; these are easily killed by swarming or throwing Pikmin on their behinds. Once defeated, the Citrus Lump and Quenching Emblem can be brought to the Research Pod. Bringing defeated beasts back will trigger a cutscene the first time a corpse is picked up by the Pod.
Sublevel 2 (Final Floor)Edit
The globe half should be ignored, and the Snow Bulborbs along the way should be defeated instead. At the end, in a spherical room, there are two Violet Candypop Buds. Throwing five Red Pikmin into each flower will produce 10 Pikmin seeds; when plucked, these will be the very first Purple Pikmin in the game. The Spherical Atlas at the start of the sublevel can now be brought back to the Ship's Pod, which will unlock the Sphere Chart, an item allowing the player to travel to the Awakening Wood.
It is possible to obtain more Purple Pikmin on this day by leaving the cave without collecting the treasure, and then returning to it. Because the Candypop Buds disappear only after the player has obtained 20 Purples, three trips of 10, 9 and 10 make the maximum 29 from this cave.
