The UV Lamp is a luxurious item, as it is not needed to be retrieved in order for Olimar to get off the planet. Captain Olimar says that the UV Lamp is so bright that he has to wear a sun visor just to look at it. It's great for tanning, but it doesn't have a relation to the Dolphin's flight capabilities. It is the lightest part in the game. In Pikmin 2, the Gherkin Gate is where this part was.
Collecting the PartEdit
It is placed high upon a ledge accessible only by Yellow Pikmin, and you must go through a maze to get to it. Firstly withdraw at least 10 Yellow Pikmin, then, grab 9 bomb rocks. Using them, destroy the black stone wall, left of the landing site. Proceed to the rocky maze area. Just swarm your Pikmin against the narrow land space, and travel against the wall so your Pikmin do not fall. Then throw your Pikmin up to the ledge, and they will carry it. Make sure you have defeated the Spotty Bulbears, Dwarf Bulbears in the way back.
