With 111 different Pals to catch in Palworld, it can be tough to decide which ones you want to catch first. While your eventual goal is to get the biggest and best Pals for your base, it's gonna take you a while before you can catch them.

We compiled a list of the 5 best early-game Pals for your base in Palworld. These 5 Pals alone can solo sustain an entire base and let you build better gear to catch better Pals.


You'll get tired of farming rocks, wood, and Paldium fragments really fast when you're trying to get a lot of Pal Spheres. Wouldn't it be awesome if there was a way to automatically get them for free? Luckily there is an easy way to get Pal Spheres.

Vixy is a neutral-type Pal that can Gather and Farm. When you assign a Vixy to a Ranch, it will regularly dig up items, including Pal Spheres.

If you can catch a few and get them in Ranches early on, they'll give you enough Pal Spheres so you won't need to craft them yourself again. They also drop bones when you catch or defeat them, which will be important to make cement later on.

Where to find Vixy?

If you're wondering where to find Vixy, you can go to the Desolate Church and you'll be able to find lots of Vixy in that area.
