What are the best starter Pals in Palworld? Palworld is finally about to make its debut on Early Access and many have been intrigued by what the game could offer, thanks to the strong resemblance it has to Pokémon. Just like the great Nintendo classic, Palworld gives you the opportunity to choose a Pal at the start of your adventure from the three that are available. But which one should you choose? In this article, we provide you with all the information you need to make the best choice based on your way of playing.
Which Ones Are the Best Starter Pals in Palworld?
At the moment, there isn't a lot of information about it yet. What we know is that the game will be released with 100 Pals available and that another 75 will be added over time. We don't know how the selection process works, how, in detail, they are captured, or what their abilities are, but we can say that at the start of the game you will have the possibility to choose between three Pals: Foxparks, Lamball, and Chikipi.
Foxparks is a fire-type Pal, very similar to Vulpix, for those who know the Pokémon world. During combat, Foxparks is able to shoot fireballs from its tail or, for an even more destructive approach, you can use this Pal as a real weapon, transforming it into a flamethrower. Furthermore, this Pal will also be very useful when you are not fighting but have to dedicate yourself to the survival part of the game. In fact, it is able to light fires that will be used for heating and cooking.
Lamball is practically a lamb, so the developers themselves have described him as a Pal who is at the base of the food chain, although, however, this should absolutely not mislead you. This Pal's weapon of choice is a heavy machine gun, so while a single specimen may seem easy to kill, a flock of these Pals could definitely give you a hard time. Furthermore, these Pals are also very useful in helping you in the construction of various types of objects and buildings in Palworld.
Chikipi is a chicken and, in this case, has no kind of comparison with any Pokémon. The developers described it as a very weak and delicious Pal, making us think that we can hunt it to feed on it (you will most likely feel guilty once we do). However, there are some theories that hypothesize that, in reality, Chikipi holds within herself a great power that can be discovered through evolution or fusion, even if, however, there is no official news on the matter.
Ultimately, therefore, since there is still not much information on their abilities, their strengths and weaknesses, decreeing exactly which is the best to start your adventure in Palworld is not so simple. However, with what little we have available, we can say that Foxparks seems to be the best choice. Not only because he is the only Pal to have natural offensive ability, but also because he is a faithful survival companion.
As for the other two Pals, it seems like Lamball needs a little more hard work before he can actually get strong, so he might take some time before you reap the rewards. Chikipi, on the other hand, if what is rumored is true, seems to be a rather useless Pal. The safest choice, therefore, if you want to have an adventure companion in Palworld who is already ready for combat and survival, Foxparks seems to be the right choice to make.
