||- Jumping Dismount|
By holding the ZL button while the Palamute is dashing, you'll enter the Drifting state. Tilt the control stick until a cloud of dust appears on the ground, then let go of ZL to unleash a speed boost that will help cover ground faster than ever.
The direction you point the control stick isn't important, and it's not necessary to wait for a sharp corner to get a boost – simply tilting the control stick forward and using the drift to boost ahead on a straight path works just fine.
The Palamute is your new Canine companion in Monster Hunter Rise. They can be used as a mount which greatly speeds up exploring the new ecosystems of Rise. They also aid you in battle making them an indispensable ally.
Unlike the Palico which gives several supportive Buffs, the Palamute is focused on offense. Aside from being used as a mount to navigate the field, they offer no other support to the hunter aside from attacking the target.
The most highlighted feature of the Palamute is the hunter's ability to ride it. It's highly similar to the Tailraiders in MHW but the game shows that the Palamute can be controlled. It even has a saddle ready for you to sit on, unlike the Tailriders!
Similar to the Palicoes, the Palamute will aid you in battle in a much more straightforward way. It attacks the monster but provides no support to you.
Similar to the Palico Gadgets in Monster Hunter World, you can command the Palamute to perform its special move. It is currently unknown what moves are available to the Palamute so stay tuned!
The Palamute can be pet, it ranges from headpats into a back rub. It's still unknown whether a belly rub is available so stay tuned for more info!
You can make the Palamute do a Handshake! This is the second of the three known gestures you can do with the palamute.
The Palamute can balance items in its nose. It is still unknown whether the items it can balance can be changed but our talented boy can definitely balance small things on its nose.
Like the Hunters, you can customize your new comrade. Their tattoo, color, and more can be edited!
Character Creation Guide
The Palamute can also equip armor to strengthen them in battle. Gearing them up can make you have a trusty partner that can aid you in battle so don't neglect their equipment!
The layered armor system, a neat feature in MHW, seems to be back and not just for the hunters—it's also available for your Palico and Palamute!
If you want a cute Palamute on your desk, or if you just want your Palamute to look cool in-game right off the bat, then getting the Palamute amiibo would be your best bet.
Good news: there is a Palamute stuffed toy that you can hug and cry into every time you get carted by Mizutsune. Bad news: it's only available in Japan. So if you live in Japan, it might just be your lucky day!

I saw that Magnamalo has two names: some shoos are selling Magnamalo Amiibo and some shops and selling Magbanaki Amiibo but they’re both the same monster. Why is that?
I hope they have different accessories for the Palamute like how the Palico can use Palico Gadgets! Maybe fang accessories which could inflict Poison, etc.?
