This article or section presents information pertaining to Pikmin: The Bulblaxian War, created by AlmightyCreeperLord.
The Ship 3.0 is the main ship in Pikmin: The Bulblaxian War and resembles the Ship in Pikmin 2, but larger with a grey, metallic design. It features three cockpits, as well as a larger hold. Its artificial intelligence has two sides: a reasonable side, which it tends to use during its speech, and a seemingly sarcastic side, which it tends to use in its notes and sales pitches.
At the start of the story, it gets shot down and the hold and the research pod get separated. The main engine is also knocked out. With the main hull unusable, the Research Pod becomes the "False Onion", and can fly above the surface, but not above the atmosphere.
The "False Onion" is what the Research Pod looks like after being separated from the hull. It's pretty much just the research pod on three legs, like an Onion. It functions as an Onion for Purple Pikmin and White Pikmin, and can even produce new ones to some extent.
