Palworld draws inspiration from Pokemon, but do the Pals evolve here like the latter?
All these years of Pokemon gaming have conditioned us to one thing, we must not only catch them all but we must also train them to evolve them to their highest potential. However, now that a new exciting game that draws inspiration from this genre is on the horizon we must start wondering about the changes we must get accustomed to. And the million-dollar question right now is, will the Pals be evolving? Let’s find out.
Do the Pals Evolve in Palworld
Much to our discontent, the truth of the matter is that Palworld won’t be coming to our gaming machines with Pal evolving features included. Moreover, the developer Pocket Pair hasn’t made any remark expressing their interest in implementing this functionality in this treasured title either.
However, one thing that should stir some light into our hearts is that the developers are in fact keen on bringing this product to the PlayStation consoles. Which can without a doubt bring in a hoard of new players. With enough headcount in the ship, we can hope that the devs will look for ways to make the game more interesting. And what other way to go about it than adding this extremely rewarding and satisfying feature of Pal evolving to the title? We are surely looking forward to it.
On various social media platforms, people are raising their interesting comments on this subject. One of the comments said that the community shall take care of it through mods if the dev fails to see through it.
However, there is one thing to keep in mind about Pals evolution not being included. This game contains an alternate feature that will be available to experiment in the form of breeding and fusing. This can be equivalent to the much-coveted Evolution function; as through this way too can one player turn their pals into top-of-the-world creatures wreaking absolute havoc.
Breeding and Fusion Explained in Palworld
Instead of evolving our Pals into ferocious and awe-worthy creatures, developer Pocket Pair has availed the option to breed them into superior companions. It happens mainly through an increase in stats and from what we can confirm close to its launch, a handful of Pals will be available to implement this feature on.
Moreover, there’s something even more exciting and innovative on the horizon. Please be introduced to the Fusion feature. This raises the mood one step above what breeding sets for us.
Supposedly, you’ll bring forth entirely new Pals in the exciting world of Palworld by fusing two different creatures together. Once the process has taken place, the newly fused will carry the stats and attributes of its parents. Depending on the combination you apply, you’ll be enthralled by various potential fusion outcomes. Be ready to be surprised.
If you want to look at it this way, you can think that these functionalities are Palworld’s way of covering up for the absence of evolving features. Moreover, it can also be argued that they decided to take their productive direction this way instead of availing something that the player base is already familiar with. Honestly, we’re all in!
The Fusion possibilities will keep getting more interesting, more exotic, more exciting, and broader as you increase your arsenal of Pals (once they are bred enough) and use the relatively rarer creatures for fusion application.
The fundamental loop that will keep the traction intact for this game seems to be this exact element – obtaining Pals, training them, and breeding them into becoming killing machines. It would be fun to involve your friends in the farming and production processes too!
Extremely Rare Pals – Shiny Pals? More Like Lucky Pals
Youtuber z1 Gaming stirred some heat when he came across a shiny Pal just when he was about to end his stream. The fun fact is, in this game, they go by a separate name than in the Pokemon genre. We have to call them Lucky Pals here! This was addressed and confirmed by the CEO of Pocket Pair in a later interview.
Lucky Pals are different from the ordinary ones we come across in the game. While we’ll be eagerly scouting to get a lucky Pal added to our arsenal, the standard ones are the Pals that will get us to those. Also, don’t forget that breeding is an option. Whether we can upgrade a standard Pal to be on par with a Lucky Pal through the means of breeding remains to be seen.
It is also yet unknown how rare our occurrences with these Lucky Pals will take place in this fantastic world. What extra features, attributes, and gameplay advantages they will provide on top of having superior stat benefits remain to be unveiled too.
