Not only can they level to 35 max, they also receive a 5th memory slot for skills at 25. The information in this is inaccurate.

My buddies must all be really special because they're 15 levels over the cap already

My Palico is still leveling past 20. This info is incorrect. My palamute currently however is maxed at 20 so far unless high rank increases this.

They can go to at least level 35, article written by someone who hasn't made any game progress.
