1. Necromus

Best Dark Pal To Mount.

It is a legendary pal found in pair with the Paladius in the northern desert of the map. As it is a level 50 pal, so you need to be well-prepared to capture it. You should target its weakness by using a dragon pal to have a double damage effect.

The partner skill Dark Knight Of the Abyss allows Necromus to be ridden and perform double jump when you are mounted. Necromus with all these amazing attack skills also provides you with Lumbering and mining work at the base increasing your resources for usage. 

  • Deal enemies with a great amount of damage.
  • It can serve as a mount and enable double jump.
  • provide decent work suitability.
  • Difficult to capture. 

Why I Chose This: I chose the Necromus because it is high-level and provides high damage while mounted.

2. Lyleen Noct

Best Dark Pal For Working.

A very powerful pal in terms of dealing damage to its enemies can be difficult to locate(you can have a look at the best Best Base Locations) but I found it in the center of the Northwestern island between the mountains. Lyleen Noct can cause you a lot of damage in the battle so you need to use a strong dragon pal such as the Jetragon against it.

It comes with a partner skill of Goddess of The Tranquil Light that can help restore your HP when you are low in a battle. In work suitability, Lyleen Noct provides level 3 handiwork and Medicine Production. Also, it helps with harvesting crops to provide food at the base.

  • Deals great damage to enemies.
  • Level 3 handiwork and medicine production.
  • Provides both damage and work suitability. 
  • Very difficult to locate and capture. 

Why I Chose This: I chose the Lyleen Noct to get extra productivity at the base and craft new items. 

3. Shadowbeak

Best Damage Dealing Dark Pal.

An eagle-based dark pal that possesses the active skill of hurling water balls at its enemies amidst the battle. It is insanely powerful and to capture it you must have the best weapons and best assisting pals alongside you. You can capture it from the north part of the map above the deserts.

Shadowbeek can be ridden as a flying mount helping you to traverse land quickly and also enhance your Dark attacks using its partner skill of Modified DNA. It lacks work suitability, providing only gathering to harvest crops.

  • Very high damage.
  • Can be used as a flying mount.
  • Enhances your dark attacks. 
  • Difficult to capture.
  • Lacks in work suitability.

Why I Chose This: I chose this to help in fights against other pals, especially Neutral Pal because of the very high damage.

4. Tombat

Best Partner Skill Dark Pal.

Another amazing dark pal that you can only encounter at night just like bats do. They can be found abundantly around the map’s eastern edge and are very easy to capture. 

What I liked most about the Tombat is its unique partner skill of Ultrasonic Sensor, this is so useful to find nearby pals in the region and also be secure from sudden attack by surrounding pals. Just like Lyleen Noct, it is great for practical work at the base providing gathering, mining, and transporting to increase your base progress. 

  • Detect any Pals in the surroundings.
  • Provide a lot of work at the base.
  • Easy to locate and capture.
  • Does not show much assistance during fights.

Why I Chose This: I use it to keep a check on my surroundings and be safe from sudden attacks from nearby pals.

My Opinion

The best Dark pal in Palworld without any doubt is the Necromus because of its high damage.

Legendary pals like Necromus are a must to have, I like how they benefit you both with practical work and in damage. They are tough to beat and capture but are very powerful additions to your Paldeck.

Tombat can also be a great option because it can protect you from nearby pal enemies and provide good practical work at the base. It’s all you need to know about the best dark pal in Palworld. If you are still in it, head over to the Palworld review written by expert writer Najam Ul Hassan.
