The Perplexing Pool is the third area discovered in Pikmin 2 of the four in the game, the last being Wistful Wild. It is the wettest area in Pikmin 2, with multiple lakes spread across its length, two of the caves being submerged. The level contains four caves, seven treasures, and a variety of beasts, many of them spending a lot of time in water. The Perplexing Pool is considered a representation of Summer.
The area is noted to bear a number of striking resemblances to The Distant Spring in the first game, for which reason it be confidently considered to be the same area of the Pikmin planet. Despite the similarites, there are some differences: for example, small islands are missing in the later version, and obstacles such as bridges and gates have been changed.
