White Pikmin are one of several species of Pikmin you can team up with in Pikmin 4. You can get them quite early in the game but it's easy to rush past the cave they're in. We didn't find them until much later in the game, so don't be too worried if you miss them early on.

Exploring an uncharted planet to find stranded space travellers is quite the adventure in Pikmin 4. You won't be alone in your quest to find the sources of the SOS calls, your trusty Pikmin friends are on hand to help and a few new species are waiting to be discovered.

Without further ado, we're here to show you how to get White Pikmin in Pikmin 4.

You can get White Pikmin in Pikmin 4 by venturing into the Subzero Sauna Cave in Serene Shores. However, when we first played we rushed past this area and didn't find any more White Pikmin until we rolled the credits, to unlock an area called Giant's Hearth.

You can find White Pikmin in the Subzero Sauna Cave in Serene Shores and the Ultimate Testing Range in Giant's Hearth in Pikmin 4.
