What are Partner Skills in Palworld?

Partner Skills are abilities that supplement what your Pal can do. Some buff team members of the same element, some heal, and others let you ride them. Whenever you catch a new Pal species, check its profile to see what makes its Partner Skill work.

Not all Partner Skills activate while on your team. Chikipi’s skill revolves around them laying eggs if assigned to a Ranch in your base. Woolipop will sometimes drop Cotton Candy while in the Ranch. Others still, such as Tanzee’s skill, require specific Pal Gear. You can’t ride a Galewing until you have a saddle. To use Foxparks as a flamethrower, you need its harness.
