Check out the most useful pals to get you off to a good start in the game!

Palworld is a Pokémon-inspired game that was officially launched on January 19, 2024 and, even with such a short time on the market, has been winning over more and more players. The game sold one million copies on Steam just eight hours after its debut and is already considered an absolute success.

But if you're just starting out on your journey and you've noticed the similarities with the other famous Nintendo game mentioned, you're probably wondering which are the best pals to pick up at first. Don't worry, your problems are over! In the article below we'll answer that question for you! Is your favorite pal among the best?

Chipiki

Chipiki is one of the three choices of starting pals, but he's not very strong in combat and his skills are best used for gathering and farming. He can lay eggs and these are very useful for feeding.

As you won't necessarily have just one encounter with a pet of this species, it's advisable to choose another initial companion and capture Chipikis on your journey, as they are one of the best pals to catch. Leaving them on the farm to help with the chores is an excellent option.

Cattiva

While Chipiki focuses on gathering and farming, Cattiva, who is also a starting pal choice, focuses on mining and building. Farming rocks, building things and carrying supplies is the specialty of this one of the best pals to get. If you have a Cattiva, your ability to carry and collect fruit will also be increased, which can be a godsend at the start of the game.

Lamball

If you want to focus on exploring the world and capturing new creatures, which is the main objective of the game, Lamball is one of the best pals to choose at the start. He offers the player a shield and, taking into account that any enemy would have to undo his shield to defeat you before anything else, he becomes an excellent option against more powerful enemies. Overall, he's one of the best pals to pick up.

Fuack

He may not be very good in combat either, but he's one of the best pals to pick up and give you support. His skills allow him to help build items, transport things and he can even water your plants. A great pal to use for agricultural activities in the end.

Eikthyrdeer

While the initial pals will serve as a kind of support on your journey, Eikthyrdeer will be more focused on combat. He's one of the best pals to catch and also one of the easiest. His attacks consist of using his horns to deal damage from a distance, but he also has a very good charge. Another highlight of his abilities is the fact that he can cut down trees quite easily.

Penguillet

Penguillet is considered an excellent support for agricultural tasks, as is Chipiki. His ability to water the orchard, transport, store items created by other pals and use the crusher to produce Palladium Fragments make him one of the best pals to pick up.

Lifmunk

Despite being a plant type, it's the shooting that Lifmunk excels at. In combat, the critter can transform into a submachine gun that allows the player to use a bow and arrow while it attacks. It's one of the best pals to pick up when it comes to taking on enemies and it's also one of the easiest to find at the start of the game.

Foxparks

Foxparks is one of the most versatile pals in the game. He can be used for both combat and survival during exploration, making him one of the best pals to pick up. He is of the fire element and has the appearance of a fox that shoots fireballs.

In addition, Foxparks can also help create metal ingots and cook meat using his fire abilities, which reduces the player's hunger status. This makes him one of the most desirable companions in the game.

Daedream

Daedream is a dark type and stands out for his ability to always be by the player's side, without the need to be summoned. He is very good at both attacking and defending the base, and can perform double attacks. He's one of the strongest pals in Palworld and also one of the most desired due to his usefulness at the start of the game.

Many players have frequently asked questions now that the game is in its infancy, in addition to which would be the best pals to catch. You can check out the answers to some of them below:
