How to capture a Pal
Capturing a Pal in Palworld is as simple as beating the chosen one down and subduing or weakening it until its health or HP is very low. Then, you need to capture them! Quite easy, isn’t it? Well now, let’s get into the details with step by step instructions and tips on how to capture a Pal:
- Step 1: First and foremost, you need to find your desired Pal and go up to them to assess their stats including their Health or HP and their Capture Rate. The Capture Rate is the percentage of how likely it is that you’ll be able to capture the Pal at that moment by throwing your Pal Sphere.
- Step 2: Then, you need to start weakening or subduing the Pal by attacking it with whatever weapon you bring with you. It is advisable to bring a good weapon like a Bow and Arrow or an Assault Rifle along with some good level Pals so you can take on any Pal in the wild.
- Step 3: Keep an eye on the Health or HP bar of the Pal while you weaken or subdue it and when the Pal is nearly dead, get ready to capture it.
- Step 4: Throw your Pal Sphere directly at the Pal and wait for the capture to be successful.
With that, you’re done catching your Pal!
Now, how to tell if you’ve caught a Pal? It is as simple as taking note of the “Capture Successful” text that pops up on the screen once you capture the Pal. Your screen will also show a brief flash of blue light as the Pal Sphere you captured your Pal in goes to your inventory or Party. The Party is the category in your inventory where all of the Pals you’ve captured and are carrying will show up. Also, on the bottom left corner of your screen, the UI will show the name of the Pal you’ve captured and you can summon it at any time you want from its own Pal Sphere.
Needless to say, capturing Pals and telling if you have caught them in the game is not as hard as it may have seemed to you. It is as easy as fighting the Pals to subdue them before throwing the Pal Sphere to capture them. It is advisable to capture a few specific Pals like Foxparks and Depresso then focus on leveling them up because not only are they amazing for fighting Bosses, which will let you capture Alpha Pals but they are also great for work around your base including the Ranch for farming.
