The effectiveness or weakness of a Pal type generally works as you would expect. Flame-type attacks deal more damage against Grass-type Pals and less damage when used against Water-type pals. There are also Pals with combined types, who then combine the weaknesses and strengths of both their types.

Dinossom-Strengths-and-Weaknesses

For instance, Dinossom, a Dragon and Grass-type Pal, takes more damage from Flame and Ice-type attacks but resists Ground and Dark-type attacks. Another example is Penking, a Water and Ice-type Pal. As Water is strong against Flame and Ice is weak against it, they cancel each other out, resulting in Penking taking normal damage from Flame-type attacks. That said, Penking still takes extra damage from Electric-type attacks and has resistance against Dragon-type attacks.

Combined Types Strengths and Weaknesses in Palworld

As you can imagine, a Pal’s combined type can create many interesting strengths and vulnerabilities. Check some examples of Pals with combined types below and how their Strengths and Weaknesses work:

If you ever find a Pal that seems a bit too powerful for you, or if a Boss Fight like that is significantly harder than you expected, like when you first meet Zoe and Grizzbolt, you can always refer to this chart and see how to better prepare for your next battle. Understanding how Pal stats work and how to level them is crucial, too. Having Pals that will take less damage from the boss while dealing more damage is imperative to win fights against powerful foes.

However, exercise caution when attempting to capture a rare Pal. If you use an attack type that is strong against your target, you may deplete its HP to zero before getting a chance to throw your Pal Sphere, which can easily be crafted with Paldium Fragments.
