Ivory Candypop Buds are pale white Candypop Buds found in the canonical series. When non-White Pikmin are thrown into the Ivory Candypop Bud, they change into White Pikmin.


Olimar's notes

Research from our most recent expedition has confirmed the presence of Candypop buds in subterranean regions. Considering the micro-ecologies this plant has been found in, one could surmise that it could be found in any cavern, regardless of geographic region. Tossing Pikmin into this flower always produces white Pikmin seeds, regardless of the color of Pikmin tossed in. In many cases, plants with small leaves typically have limited photosynthetic capabilities, and thus must find alternate means of obtaining nutrients, with parasitic and predatory behaviour being most common. The Candypop could be considered one such example.

Louie's notes

This elusive flower spoils within seconds of picking, making it unsuitable for cooking.

The Ivory Candypop Bud appears in Pikmin 251. Its behavior is unchanged from Pikmin 2.


Olimar's observations

The Ivory Candypop bud allows other Pikmin type to become the quick and poison-immune White Pikmin. We found the first of these at a cave deep in the Wistful Wild. Now we have three Pikmin types at our disposal, but we still haven't found Blue or Purple Pikmin.

There are a few more than Pikmin 2 but Candypop Buds are almost worthless in PR for the first half of the game.

Ivory Candypop Buds can be found distributed throughout the Toxin Territory. They can be found in groups of three to four. Each of them can transform ten Pikmin into White Pikmin if they are not already that color. After changing ten non-White Pikmin, the Ivory Candypop Bud will wilt and disappear. They regenerate every six days.
