Palworld is the latest monster-taming release to take Steam by storm. Lovingly dubbed ‘Pokemon with guns’ this open-world survival title brings a darker twist to the genre. At the game’s core are Pals, the creatures you’ll be catching and battling with throughout your playthrough.

There are 100 Pals to find during early access, and they can also help you with various activities like farming operations and factory work in Palworld but can they also evolve in the game? We’ve got the answer below.

Do Pals evolve in Palworld? Fusion system explained

Palworld enables players to fuse Pals to create deadly combinations.

No, Pals don’t evolve in Palworld. Instead, players can breed Pals through the game’s Fusion system. It’s here where your Pals can inherit the characteristics of their parents, giving them access to unique features and characteristics. 

Fusion Pals can become particularly potent when players breed two rare Pals together, which then opens up even more possibilities. This means you’ll be able to combine Pals to create some incredibly strong combinations, so be sure to catch and train as many Pals as you can.

While some players may be disappointed to find that Palworld doesn’t feature evolutions in the same vein as Pokemon, there is plenty of customization when it comes to creating your perfect roster. 

There you have it, that’s everything you need to know about whether Pals evolve in Palworld. For more content on the game, check out our guides below:
