So I have been using a guide and I just got the boat. After you get on the boat, there are no more PONR right? The guide was a great help but i'd prefer to go at my own pace now and not be so cautious.
I just finished Konpa Ruins and had Rief join my party, and realized I missed Flower. Am I totally screwed out of getting it now, it's impossible to ever return and get it? Once the cave is blocked, you're screwed. Sorry :(
