How does Skill Fruit work in Palworld and when should you use it?

Unlock the powers of the hidden fruit.

Palworld has plenty of items you’ll need to keep track of while you adventure through the game, and some can just seem confusing. For some players, Skill Fruits are those items.

These fruits can be found hanging from trees across the Palworld map, but they are extremely rare, so you probably won’t stumble upon too many unless you go searching. When you pick the fruit you’ll notice that it is named after a specific skill.

The process for taking advantage of these fruits is very easy and simple to understand, but you’re going to want to know when you should and shouldn’t use these special items.

Skill Fruit is used in Palworld to teach abilities to Pals who otherwise wouldn’t be capable of learning them.

Each Pal has a pool of moves that they will learn naturally as they level up. These will typically be attached to their specific type, but those same moves can be found across the map hanging from Skill Fruit trees. When collected, you simply go to your inventory, select use, and you can teach that specific move to a new Pal.

This is great for setting your whole team up for a specific fight without any need for catching fresh Pals specifically to counter the boss.

You should use Skill Fruit when you need to give a Pal a certain type of powerful attack for a specific fight, or if you simply want to provide them a strong ability that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.

Skill Fruits can be handy for coverage purposes so that your Pal can deal big damage to more types of enemies, and also to cover some of its weaknesses.

One certain thing is that you should not use Skill Fruits on Pals who are set to learn that specific ability as they level up. It might seem easy to drop an Epic Skill Fruit right now so that your Pal can get its strongest move early, but doing this is simply wasting its power when it could be used for a creature that isn’t capable at all.
