Best Passive Skills in Palworld

Try to get Pals with more Positive Passive

There is no right way to get a passive skill on a Pal. However, you can breed parents with passives using some of the best breeding combos, and the passive will reflect on the child. It is always better to use a Pal with multiple positive passive skills in Palworld. Here are some of the best Pal passive skills you should look for when using a Pal:

  • Legend: This is a guaranteed passive if you capture legendary Pals like Shadowbeak. Once you have one Pal with a Legend passive, use them in the breeding farm. This will get you a child Pal with the Legend passive. It is an easy way to get the Legend passive skill. This is a great trait in a Pal as it gives +20% Attack, +20% Defense, and +15% Movement Speed.
  • Lucky: You will find the shiny Pals in several places on the map. These shiny Pals contain the Lucky passive skill. Lucky Pals are very useful for working in the base and protecting it if you assign jobs to Pals. This passive gives the Pals +15% Work Speed and +15% Attack.
  • Motivational Leader: Despite being a passive skill found in lower level Pals, Motivational Leader increases your movement speed by 25%. This will allow you to travel across the map faster in the early going and catch more Pals using your Pal Sphere.

These are all the passive skills and their effects in Palworld. Make sure you use the Pals with better passive at base or boss fights. Which passive skill do you think is the best in-game? Let us know in the comments below.
