How to collect treasure in Pikmin 4

Fortunately, it's very easy to collect treasure in Pikmin 4. Each item will display a number above it, indicating how many Pikmin are required to carry it.

Then, it's a simple case of summoning enough Pikmin to lift the treasure, when they'll then automatically start carrying it towards your base. Of course, there could be obstacles or enemies in the way, so you and your remaining forces will need to clear a path so you can harvest the Sparklium.

Why do I need to collect treasure in Pikmin 4?


Collecting treasure in Pikmin 4 is really important, because it's the only way to harvest Sparklium. This isn't a resource used to purchase items, but rather acts as your progression level.
