Palico Basics

Palico Fortes

Every Palico has a specialty that affects the skills they have and the special abilities they can use. For example, True Health Horn, a horn Palicos can blow that will restore your health, is usually found in Healing Forte Palicos.

The following is a list of the fortes and what they specialize in. Have a few Palicos of each forte for flexibility.

Forte Specialties
Charisma Cheers you on and buffs your attack/defense, can heal sometimes.
Fighting Specializes in attacking the monster instead of buffing you
Protection Buffs your defense and gives you other forms of protection against statuses and the like.
Assisting An oddball forte that does a variety of things the other fortes don't. Can create a trampoline that you can leap off of to mount a monster, for example
Bombing Attacks the monster ruthlessly like Fighting Palicos, but only with bombs!
Gathering Does not fight or help you much and instead will focus solely on gathering from gathering spots and monster bodies.
