ok...there's a few problems. One, Merlon won't upgrade my party members. I have I think 14 shine sprites but he says I have none for him to upgrade. What's up with this?
Also, I am on chapter 7. I am getting permission to use the cannon at the Fahr Outpost...but I can't get General White's permission. I've even been using a strategy guide by my game isn't doing the same thing any guide says to do. I have it right up to the Keelhaul Key part, I talked to Pa-Patch and he said the right thing. Then I went to Glitzville and talked to the juice bar owner and he said "Oh he went off to some tree." However, then I go to the tree and the Puni elder doesnt say anything about Gen. White. What did I do wrong?
