By the way, is updates in the image gallery the only reward?

Haven't used him yet, but still have to find a few pieces in zone 6, 7 and 8
Although I have to admit that if I hadn't accidentally stumbled into the hidden alcove in 6-k where the 2 electric beetles chase you, I would prolly still be searching there. Did the lvl god knows how many times and was stuck on 1 piece for ages XD

I used Squawks at least a dozen times, but never without replaying a level at least twice, to try and find things by myself.

Only a couple of pieces I couldn't find myself were those I felt a little stupid for afterward.
yes but since this poke is pure fighting then it be best 2 use 2 fighting moves so it can get 2 stab ~rikuxking

I've used him once so far just to see exactly how he helped out, but there are still a ton of puzzle pieces I have left to find so we'll see.

I haven't used him yet, but how does he work? Does he only find one piece in a level?

I haven't gotten into hardcore puzzle hunting yet, but I don't really like searching huge worlds for that one hidden secret so I probably will.

Squawks will be on the lower left-hand side of the screen and part of the HUD. He'll squawk when you're near a piece, and almost go berserk when you're right next to it (or next to a bonus barrel). Basically, he's acts like a sonar or gauge.

But yeah, I've used Squawks a lot; mostly because I was lazy and just wanted to get the pieces that I missed. However, by world 6 and decided to find all the pieces on my own, and for the most part I could...with the exception of some really annoying pieces that I felt stupid for missing.

I seem to remember back in World 4 (in Crowded Cavern I think) where you had to jump on the rickety bridge, then jump off, and get the puzzle piece that falls from the sky. I would not have thought of that to be honest. :/
