Does Palworld have shinies? Just like the monsters in other creature-focused games, Pals in Palworld come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are three distinct variations of Pals you can spot in the wild: Alpha, Lucky, and Fusion Pals. If you want to become a Palworld master, you’re going to need to catch ’em all, regardless of their type.

The Palworld release date is finally here, so it’s worth looking into which starter Pals you can select from at the beginning of the open-world game. Once you start picking up Pals, it won’t be long before you’re filling up your Palworld Paldeck. To find all 100+ Pals, you’re going to need to know about every Pal variation first.

Every Palworld Pal variation

Here are all of the Palworld Pal variations:

  • Alpha Pals: These Pals are much larger than their standard counterparts, yet they can be captured all the same. These enemies are also known as bosses if you stumble on them in the wild.
  • Lucky Pals: What makes Lucky Pals so special is that they have a shiny effect on them, making them stand out compared to every other standard Pal. When brought to your camp they appear much larger.
  • Fusion Pals: By bringing together two compatible creatures using Palworld breeding, you can create a special Fusion Pal.

Does Palworld have shinies?

Palworld has its own version of shinies, simply referred to as rare. They will appear in the world with a sparkling effect, and will have a buff to their statistics. When brought to your camp, they will appear larger than their counterparts.
