Unlike most Pokemon-style games, Palworld lets you capture humans and summon them at will, although this feature isn’t noticeable initially. However, even if you do catch them, there’s minimal benefit, and you’re honestly better off saving your Pal Spheres for something else.
How To Catch Humans In Palworld
The easiest way to catch a human in Palworld is by lowering their HP as much as possible, preferably until you stagger them, and then throw a Pal Sphere at them that hopefully seals them away.
Unlike the pals you catch in-game, humans don’t show a Capture Rate when you aim your Pal Sphere at them. You only see it when you’ve thrown the sphere at them and see the capturing animation. Of course, the more powerful the human, the lower their Capture Rate, which only increases when you lower their HP.
Thus, for your first human subjects, I’d recommend starting with the weak Syndicate Thugs near your initial spawn and using at least a Mega Pal Sphere.
How To Use Humans In Palworld
Players can use captured humans for combat and handiwork around their bases or preferably sell them to merchants for Gold coins.
In terms of Work Suitability, every human, regardless of their level, only has Level 1 Handiwork, so you can only use them for basic construction. In fact, the only difference between different human NPCs is their attack, defense, and HP stats. They don’t even use the weapons they used when they weren’t enslaved.
They don’t have any Partner Skill, and their only Active Skill is a Level 12 Punch, so they’re pretty ineffective in synergized teams. Therefore, since there’s no major benefit to having humans for your base or team, you can try selling them to merchants, like the Black Marketeer, for Gold Coins.
Additionally, you can also capture merchants and black marketers and keep them in your base, which is probably the only category of humans that provides any notable benefit to your base, in my opinion. Keeping a merchant at home avoids the hassle of constantly fast traveling to them.
That wraps up my brief guide on how to catch and use humans in Palworld. It’s clear the game doesn’t want you imprisoning them since the first in-game message you get after doing so states, “On Palpagos Island, capturing humans is considered inhumane.” However, this experience is rarely seen in Pokemon titles, and judging from this Steam Community Page, stunts like these spark intriguing discussions.
