What are the best Watering Pals in Palworld? Water is the source of all life, particularly when you’re stranded on an island full of Pals. While you won’t die of thirst in Pocketpair’s survival RPG, it won’t be long before you have a bountiful plot of land desperate for a drop of water. That’s where Watering Pals come in.

Watering Pals are essential for growing and producing Palworld food, whether that’s sustaining Palworld Wheat or powering the Mill. They’re also required to run the Crusher, which outputs the Palworld Paldium Fragments necessary to craft Pal Spheres at your Palworld base. The best Palworld Watering Pals have the movement speed necessary to juggle all of these workstations and ensure seamless automation in the Pokemon PC game. Here are the best Watering Pals to assign to your base.

Best Watering Pals in Palworld

The best Watering Pal in Palworld is Jormuntide with level four Watering work suitability. It can be found in either the lake southeast of Investigator’s Fork or near the submerged carcass east of Mossanda Forest.

Given that Jormuntide is one of the many Palworld bosses that patrol the Palworld map, you might have to hold off on catching it until you acquire the best Palworld weapons to make it through the battle. Once caught, Jormuntide has the highest Watering work suitability of all the Palworld Pals in the Paldeck, and its single-minded focus means that it can cover all your Watering needs with ease.

Here are the best Watering Pals in Palworld:

Tier Pal
S Jormuntide
A Azurobe, Broncherry Aqua, Elphidran Aqua, Suzaku Aqua
B Elphidran Aqua, Gobfin, Penking, Relaxasaurus, Surfent
C Celeray, Dumud, Fuack, Kelpsea, Pengullet, Teafant

Best focused Watering Pal

Unsurprisingly, the best focused Watering Pal is Jormuntide – but given the number of Palworld Pals that only boast Watering work suitability, you’re pretty much spoiled for choice. If you’re not ready to grab yourself a Jormuntide just yet, Azurobe or Broncherry Aqua are an excellent alternative, though they are slightly slower at level four Watering work suitability.

Best multi-discipline Watering Pal

If you prefer to live off meat rather than crops, then you might find your Watering Pals are standing idle a bit too often. Penking is likely your best candidate with work suitability spanning Transporting, Mining, Cooling, and Handiwork alongside Watering. While these all sit at level two, it makes Penking a jack of all trades but a master of none, and a perfect candidate for any Palworld jobs that need doing.

Best early game Watering Pal

Pengullet is the best Watering Pal to assign to your base in the early game. Its proximity to the Palworld starter area makes it an easy catch, and its additional Handiwork, Transporting, and Cooling work suitability means it can help out with item management and crafting. However, as your Watering needs increase, you may want to switch Pengullet out for Watering Pals with higher work suitability in our tier list.

The best Palworld Watering Pals can set your base up for an unlimited supply of dry food, though we highly recommend pairing them with the best Palworld Kindling Pals to whip up something more substantial. You’ll also need the best Palworld Transporting Pals to ensure that your Palworld resources aren’t languishing outside of storage.
