No matter how low you get a Pal, some of them never stay in the Pal Sphere. Like Pokemon, you may need more advanced catching devices to get the best Pals. So are there Pal Sphere Upgrades in Palworld? Here are the details.

Can You Upgrade Pal Spheres in Palworld? Pal Sphere Upgrades Detailed

While wandering the different islands, I started to discover different colored Pal Spheres. Just as I was struggling to catch higher level Pals I found more advanced spheres. I’ve even gotten some Giga Spheres, even though I’m only level 12, which makes catching new to me Pals so much easier.

However, getting these items requires a separate crafting bench and resources. You’ll have the ability to create more advanced spheres with the Sphere Workbench and Sphere Assembly line as you level up your base and character.

How to Increase the Pal Sphere Capture Rate

Along with the advanced spheres, you’re able to enhance your Capture Power at the Statue of Power. whether you find one in an abandoned church or use one you build, collected Lifmunk Effigies can be allocated to increase you power. This bonus takes effect after the sphere hits a Pal, so you may see a large jump right at the first tick.

Lifmunk Effigies Required for Enhancement

While the first level of Capture Power Enhancement only needs four Lifmunk Effigies, the later levels ask for large amounts.

*This list is a work in progress as we get through the levels.*

  • Level 1: 1 Effigies
  • Level 2: 4 Effigies
