Argilla Pass is a location in Mother 3 accessable during Chapter 7. Chupichupyoi Temple and Ionia's house are located here.


Argilla Pass is first accessed in Chapter 7 by taking the left path after exiting Sunshine Forest from the north. The path leads to an empty field before continuing north, which leads to a mountain pass with several branching paths and caves. Taking the left path on the first fork in the road leads to a cave containing a hot spring. The right path is a winding path which leads to the caves.

The caves start out with an empty room with two paths to take. Going left leads to a bridge across an underground stream, then turns downwards before leading back outside. Back outside is a small cliff with another cave entrance to go back inside. Continuing this way leads to a dead end where the Negative Man can be fought as an optional boss.

Back at the initial entrance, taking the path to the right goes to another split. North will lead to a dead end, going south is a winding path that turns right, then after a small dip is the exit from the cave.

From hear on there are only two places to go. Heading right is where Ionia's house is located, and where Lucas delivers the Jar of Yummy Pickles. North is where the Chupichupyoi Temple is located, as well as one of the Needles.

In Mother 3

Chapter 7

After recieving Mixolydia's task to give the Jar of Yummy Pickles to Ionia, Lucas and his friends travel through Argilla Pass to give it to Ionia. On the way to meet Ionia and deliver it, Lucas drops it, temporarily leaving Boney as the party leader to find it. There are other items located here as well, but if Boney finds the pickles first, the other items become unavailable.

At Ionia's house, Lucas gives the pickles to Ionia, who in turn gives the Waters of Time to remove the vines blocking the temple in order to pull the next Needle. On the way there, a Mr. Saturn shows up to return the newly-polished Courage Badge, now revealed to be a Franklin Badge. At the Chupichupyoi Temple, the group confront the Masked Man and the Pigmasks who are trying to enter the temple. However, the Masked Man is unable to remove vines that are frozen in time. Upon spotting Lucas, he attacks them with lightning, but Lucas's Franklin Badge reflects it back to start a battle. After being defeated, the Masked Man and the Pigmasks retreat, allowing Lucas to use the Waters of Time to remove the vines. Inside, the next Needle is able to be pulled by Lucas, which then prompts Ionia to arrive and teach Kumatora PK Starstorm before disappearing.

Finally, the team leaves the temple before being transported to New Pork City.
