|Treasure Number||136 (NTSC) / 135 (PAL)|
The Doomsday Apparatus is the heaviest and most valuable treasure found in Pikmin 2. It is a blue and heavy rusted training weight that is found close to the landing site in the Wistful Wild. A 100 Purple Pikmin is required to carry this item and it takes at least a quarter of the day to bring back to the ship.
The easiest way to accumulate 100 Purple Pikmins is the Subterranean Complex, as there are three Violet- and two Queen Candypop Buds on the eighth sublevel, with many eggs and a geyser to return to the surface. Another good place is the Bulblax Kingdom, it has 3 Violet Candypop Buds and one Ivory.
"Perplexing mysteries are often solved in unexpected ways. When I was studying this item earlier today, I was astounded at its unbelievable bulk. It was so heavy! I would have never been able to move it without my burly purple Pikmin. Later analysis indicated this thing is in fact some kind of heavy artillery."
"An apocalyptic weapon made of super-heavy, gravity-compressed materials of unknown origin. The fact that its great weight makes it uncontrollable is, at times, a mild detriment."
