The Shock Absorber (ショックアブゾーバー, "Shokku Abuzōbā") is a ship part in Pikmin found in The Forest of Hope. It is protected by a Red Bulborb on a ledge. The Shock Absorber counteracts the shaking and swaying during space flight, making the flights taken by the Dolphin much smoother.


Discovery Notes

"It's the Shock Absorber! This apparatus counteracts the shaking and swaying that normally occurs during flight. It's smooth sailing with this in place... Usually."

Ship Log

"This nifty little device counteracts the shaking and swaying experienced in typical space flight." 

Collecting the Part

The Shock Absorber being absorbed by the Dolphin.

Starting from the landing site, go to the left through where the breakable gate was. Toss Pikmin on the ledge and then walk up the slope in the nearby pool of water to rejoin them. Pikmin can also be thrown from where the Nova Blaster is. Defeat the Spotty Bulborb and then claim the part, located just next to it. To make it easier, try taking Blue Pikmin through the water to launch a rear attack on the Bulborb.
