How to get items in Pikmin 4
In order to get items in Pikmin 4, you simply have to talk to Russ, the Rescue Corps scientist. He's easy to spot in the hub world, as he has a spanner icon above his head. He will start out with just a few items near the start of the game but more will be added with time.
Initially, items are free, to teach you how to use them at the start. If you decide you like the item and want to use it more as you play, you will have to pay for them with raw materials.
Raw materials can be grabbed throughout the game by harvesting them throughout stages, so you're unlikely to ever run out. Even better, most of the top-level items like bombs are on the cheaper side, so you've got no need to worry about running out of cash.
And with that, you know all you should know about items in Pikmin 4. For more information on the game, here's how to rewind in Pikmin 4, all side missions in Pikmin 4, and how to customise your character in Pikmin 4.
