Palworld Best Pals Guide – Best Pals for All Jobs & Breeding

Palworld Best Pals Guide

Having a strong team is important for your base in Palworld. Each friend has unique skills for different tasks, like mining rocks or watering crops. It’s good to have a mix of friends, but not too much diversity. Your Pals can also be bred to create the more skilled Pals that you assign various jobs to. In this Palworld Best Pals Guide, we will go through the best Pals for breeding and different jobs throughout the different phases of the game and your base!

Best Pals Guide – Palworld

Below you will find the best pals for different tasks in the game:

Best Pals For Handiwork

  • Early Pal for Handiwork: Sparkit

Skill levels: Handiwork 1, Generating Electricity 1, Transporting 1

Certainly, Cattiva and Lamball also have basic crafting skills, but they might be busy with mining and ranching. So, it’s a good idea to keep a Sparkit with you. It will assist you in crafting, building, and moving items to your storage when you’re not working on something specific. If you’re concerned about its ability to generate electricity, don’t worry too much, because in the beginning, you won’t have anything that requires electricity, so it won’t be a problem.

  • Best Mid- And Endgame Pal For Handiwork: Anubis

Breeding combinations: Celaray/Relaxaurus, Penking/Bushi

Skill levels: Handiwork 4, Mining 3, Transporting 2

Even though Anubis is a tough boss in the game, you can create one easily by combining different creatures. Make it as soon as possible, and you won’t have to stress about improving your Handiwork squad later on. Anubis has the best Handiwork stat at level four in the game. It’s good at many tasks, making it one of the few versatile Pals we highly suggest.



Skill levels: Kindling 1

This dude is simple to locate, and it will ignite all your passions. That’s pretty much all there is to it.


Breeding combinations: Penking/Rushoar, Rooby/Grintale, Gumoss/Nitewing

Skill levels: Kindling 2

After reaching the snowy area near Lily and Lyleen, look for one of these creatures during the night and bring it back to your base. It has level two Kindling, making it cook and smelt faster than Foxsparks.


Skill levels: Kindling 4

Jormuntide Ignis is the best Kindling Pal in the game because it has a high Kindling level of four. It melts items quickly, but it’s really big. If your base is mostly indoors, it might have trouble moving around. We put our smelting tools outside, so it worked fine, but I had to wait for it to get in position to smelt four times.

To get a Jormuntide Ignis, you need to breed two other Jormuntide Ignis. But you can often find it in Wildlife Preserve #2.



Skill levels: Mining 1

This dude smashes rocks! That’s basically what they do. Keep in mind that Rushoar is in the early stages of the game. Its low Mining level means it can’t even gather ores.


Breeding combinations: Gumoss/Kingpaca, Penking/Woolipop Rushoar/Surfent

Skill levels: Mining 3

Having a bunch of Digtoise can be really helpful. Many content creators on platforms like YouTube and TikTok suggest creating an ore farm using these creatures, and there’s a good reason for that. You can find them quite early in the game, so make sure to collect a bunch of them. Digtoise are great at mining, and they’ll help you gather a lot of ore effortlessly.


Breeding combinations: Blazamut/Suzaku Aqua

Skill levels: Kindling 3, Mining 4

Regrettably, getting Blazamut eggs isn’t simple, but you can definitely catch a certain Alpha Blazamut in the specified spot. Look for the entrance to a mineshaft marked with a star. You might also occasionally find them at Wildlife Preserve #3, located above the big desert in the northeast. When you have a Blazamut, you can go ahead and breed it with a Suzaku Aqua to get more.

Palworld Best Pals Guide



Skill levels: Watering 1

This guy waters your crops and so on without any issues!


Breeding combinations: Incineram/Sweepa, Elizabee/Univolt

Skill levels: Watering 3

Sure, you can make more Azurobes by catching the level 17 Alpha Azurobe. Another option is to get more Azurobes from Wildlife Preserve #1 in the south if you don’t want your base to be crowded with Pals.

In any case, Azurobe is a useful Pal that only waters things. Whether it’s producing Paldium using a crusher or watering your crops, it does the job quickly without causing any issues in your base.


Breeding combinations: Sweepa/Beakon, Elizabee/Relaxaurus

Skill levels: Watering 4

Similar to the powerful Jormuntide Ignis, the ordinary water-type Jormuntide is the top Watering Pal in the game, bringing a strong base Watering skill of four to the table! Like its fire-type counterpart, it’s also quite large. If you happen to catch one of the two Alpha Jormuntides and use them for tasks, they become even larger, but this might lead to glitches, so we don’t recommend it if you want a stable base. Instead, consider acquiring the Alpha Jormuntides and breeding them to obtain a regular-sized one. Alternatively, you can breed an Elizabee with a Relaxaurus to get a water-type Jormuntide.


When it comes to breeding your Pals, we have a guide here that you can go through if you want to learn how to start the breeding process. In this guide we will be focusing on the best Pals that you can breed so, let’s get started!


One of the top mounts in the game is the Kitsun, a big fox with Fire powers. When you ride it, you won’t feel hot or cold. It’s not easy to find in the wild, so your best bet is to breed it. The good news is you can start breeding as soon as you unlock the Breeding Farm.

Parent Combos:

Gumoss + Sweepa

Gumoss hang out in the forests close to where you begin your adventure and a bit farther. They appear as a funny blob of smart mud wearing a leaf hat. Meanwhile, in the Sea Breeze Archipelago, there’s a level 11 Alpha Pal version of Gumoss. Similarly, you can find the Alpha Pal version of Sweepa, a big fluffy white creature with a mustache, on Small Cove Island, and it’s also level 11. Catch them early and use them for your initial breeding experiment.

Rooby + Penking

To try a different team, use Rooby (a different kind of fire fox) and Penking. Head to the top-left from where you begin, and you’ll find a level 15 Penking Alpha Pal to the northeast of the Abandoned Mineshaft. These creatures resemble big blue penguin kings. You can spot Rooby on Marsh Island, which is directly above the starting area.


Similar to Kitsun, Rayhound is a great ride, but for different reasons. It can jump twice, and its attacks while mounted mostly include shooting simple projectiles that are easy to aim. Since it’s an Electric-type, it can also help power your base later on, and it’s handy for breeding purposes too.

Parent Combos:

Penking + Caprity

We recommend taking this path for Rayhound because it’s the easiest. Look for Penking, a level 15 Alpha Pal, to the northeast of the Abandoned Mineshaft in the Windswept Hills northwest of the starting point. Caprity, a bit rare, can also be found in that area, usually between levels 10 and 15.

Direhowl + Nitewing

Direhowls are strong fighters that work well in the beginning of the game. It’s a good idea to catch them whenever you can. Sometimes, they might attack your starting base. You can find them at level 10 or below in Eastern Wild Island, Marsh Island, and the western edge of Windswept Hills. Nitewing can be found in different locations, including the starting area, at around level 10. Additionally, there’s a more powerful level 18 Alpha Pal on the southern tip of Ice Wind Island.

Direhowl + Sweepa

Check the previous information about Direhowl, but know that Sweepa is a basic Ice-type. You can catch it easily when it’s in its Alpha Pal form on the western island in the Sea Breeze Archipelago.

  • Quivern

Catching a Quivern at the Sealed Realm of the Winged Tyrant checkpoint is not very difficult. You can use the blue teleportation platform to go straight into a battle with it at level 23. Another option is to find one in the wild at the No. 2 Wildlife Sanctuary to the west, but it will be at a higher level. Alternatively, you can choose to breed a Quivern as soon as you unlock the Breeding Farm. It’s a strong Dragon type and a better choice than Nitewing as an early-game flying mount.

Parent Combos:

Nitewing + Relaxaurus

Nitewing is a rare flying creature that can appear in the sky in many places on the map, starting around level 11. If you reach level 18, you can find the stronger Alpha Pal version at the southern tip of Ice Wind Island. Nitewing is important to catch early because it’s the first flying mount you can get, and you can use it to obtain an even better mount. To get Relaxaurus, go to the southwest of the map’s center in Ascetic Falls and Sealed Realm of the Thunder Dragon, where it can be caught between levels 10 and 20. If you breed Nitewing and Relaxaurus, you’ll get a Quivern, which is not only a good mount and fighter but also useful for breeding future Pals.

  • Anubis

The Ground-type Anubis is a highly sought-after Pal that isn’t a legendary. It appears as an Alpha Pal in the Twilight Dunes at level 47, but you can get it sooner by using different breeding combinations. Anubis has really strong attacks and is considered the top Ground Pal in the game.

Parent Combos:

Quivern + Chillet

To get a Quivern, either breed one or find its Alpha Pal version at level 23. You can also catch a level 11 Chillet Alpha Boss south of the Fort Ruins fast travel point. If you build a Breeding Farm and breed a Quivern first, you could do this soon after. Chillet is a great Pal in general, so it’s a good idea to get one no matter what.

Bushi + Penking

Bushi usually have a level higher than 30 as they wander around the volcanoes of the Palpagos Islands. However, you can find a level 23 Alpha Pal in the Sealed Realm of the Swordmaster at coordinates (-131, -493). Another Alpha Pal, a level 15 Penking, is located in the redwood forest northeast of the Abandoned Mineshaft, which is northwest of the starting area.

Ragnahawk + Tombat

If your character level is in the 30s, it’s a good idea to choose this path because Ragnahawk is one of the top flying mounts in the game. Look for them when your level is around 35, specifically in the southwest corner near the Mount Obsidian volcano.

Tombats appear at night in the Windswept Hills to the northwest of the starting area. Concentrate your search on the southern edge of the red-marked area on the map.

While these are the regular combos, there have been other reported combos too:

  • Dinossum Rex + Warsect
  • Bushi + Grintale
  • Vanwyrm + Azurobe
  • Arsox + Pyrin
  • Nitewing + Rayhound
  • Caprity + Beakon
  • Eikthyrdeer + Beakon
  • Incineram + Surfent
  • Mossanda + Katress

Palworld Beginner's Guide

  • Faleris

Usually found in the upper regions of the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary in the northeast part of the map, Faleris is a flying firebird. It serves as an outstanding flying mount and fighter in the game. Additionally, it excels as a top-notch worker for tasks like smelting and transportation.

Parent Combos:

Follow our method to breed Anubis (it’s easier than capturing it at level 47). Vanwyrm is like a less strong version of Faleris, another firebird available at lower levels. They appear near Mount Obsidian at slightly higher levels, but you can catch them at ground level. They usually fly in pairs and are not very common, but not extremely rare either.

  • Lyleen

Lyleen is known as one of the top Grass-type creatures in the game. You can find it in the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary, but only at higher levels. Additionally, Lyleen shows up in the Tower of the Free Pal Alliance boss battle at around level 25. If a Pal is a Tower boss, it usually means it’s a valuable one. However, you can also breed Lyleen before reaching higher levels.

Parent Combos:

Petallia + Mossanda

You can battle the Grass-type Petallia in a special place when it reaches level 28. This location is found on the bottom part of Mount Flopie island, which is northwest of the Windswept Hills. Alternatively, you can travel to the No. 2 Wildlife Sanctuary, located south of the starting area, to find and capture Petallia in the wild when it’s between level 20 and 25. Mossanda is another Grass-type creature that appears in Mossanda Forest, and you can encounter it between level 20 and 30.

  • Verdash

Verdash is a versatile Grass-type creature that’s good at many things. It has strong attacks, doesn’t eat much, and is skilled at various tasks, making it a great choice to get as soon as possible. However, as you progress, another Grass-type creature called Warsect becomes better in battles. Still, Verdash will be useful in the middle part of the game until it eventually becomes one of your top workers and retires.

Parent Combos:

Bushi + Tocotoco

Bushi can be found at level 23 in the Sealed Realm of the Swordmaster, just southwest of the teleport point at Bamboo Grove. If you don’t find it there, you might come across Bushi at around level 33 in the wild, particularly on the southern edges of Mount Obsidian or even higher in the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary.

Tocotoco sometimes launch kamikaze attacks on your bases. Similar to Voltorb from Pokémon, they explode and cause a lot of damage to the nearby area. You can find them at higher levels all over the Sand Dunes to the northeast, but you can encounter them earlier in the desert area on the northeastern edge of Investigator’s Fork, at around level 10.

  • Grizzbolt

You likely encountered this Pal for the first time with Zoe at the Rayne Syndicate Tower and noticed it’s like a mascot for Palworld. It’s not common to find it in the No. 1 Wildlife Sanctuary on an island in the southeast of the map until around level 30. However, it’s simpler to just breed one before reaching that level.

Parent Combos:

Mossanda + Rayhound

Mossanda, which is a Grass-type Pokemon, has a forest named after it. You can find Mossanda in the Mossanda Forest, specifically between levels 20 and 30. On the other hand, Rayhound appears in the wild at level 40 and above, specifically in the southern part of the Sand Dunes. However, it’s recommended to breed Rayhound much earlier than its wild appearance.

  • Orserk

Usually, finding an Orserk involves going to the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary in the northeast part of the map. You have to handle guards and Pals that are over level 40. However, there’s a way to get this powerful Pal earlier by breeding.

Parent Combo:

Grizzbolt + Relaxaurus

Now that you have a Grizzbolt, mate it with the Relaxaurus you previously used to breed a Quivern. This will result in Orserk. You can find Relaxaurus between levels 10 and 20, located southwest of the map’s center in the Ascetic Falls and Sealed Realm of the Thunder Dragon.

  • Astegon

If your level is 45 or below, consider breeding an Astegon. It’s a Dragon/Dark-type that can be useful in your final battles or even at your preferred mining colony. You can breed an Astegon before reaching level 48, where you encounter an Astegon Alpha Pal boss at Mount Obsidian.

Parent Combos:

Relaxaurus + Suzaku

Once you reach level 40 and start checking out the southern Sand Dunes towards the northeast, you should look for a Suzaku. You might find a level 45 Alpha Pal just southwest of the lake in the middle of the Sand Dunes, but sometimes they can appear closer to level 40.

  • Shadowbeak

Many players believe that Shadowbeak is one of the best companions for battles in the game. As the name suggests, it is a Dark-type bird and serves as the top non-legendary flying mount. Additionally, when you ride it, its partner skill, Genetic Modification, enhances Dark attacks. If you choose the right traits, Shadowbeak becomes the most powerful Dark-type creature in the game, offering a wide range of useful abilities.

Parent Combos:

Kitsun + Astegon

If you have a Kitsun and an Astegon from the previous steps, you can combine them to create a Shadowbeak. If your level is already 45, consider attempting to catch Astegon’s Alpha Pal version directly or explore the No. 3 Wildlife Sanctuary.
