I've largely neglected searching for the various Doodles and Grimalkynes (aka the cats of the New World) to acquire additional Palico Gadgets. I got the Plunderblade, and never looked back. Now I'm interested in trying out the others. I tried one of the High Rank events, and could not find any Doodles (the "trail" you can research for them). However, I tried again in a Low Rank expedition, found the doodles, and got the gadget I was seeking.
My question is, can I find Doodles or the Grimalkynes of an area in a High Rank quest? If so, are there any other restrictions?
As an addendum, I know the Gajalaka cats' quest in the Elder's Recess would have to be High Rank, but that one is also restricted to being available only after acquiring all the other gadgets.
