There are multiple buddy boards, one in Kamura Village and two in the Guild Hall, so of course, there will also be a Buddy Board in the Buddy Plaza. From here you can manage your buddies' equipment, behavior, and appearance.
Buddies have equipable skills that increase their stats, strengthen their resistances, or give their attacks better traits. You can choose which skills they have equipped via the Buddy Board!
Palicos and Palamutes can get equipment that raises their attack and defense made from scraps from monsters. You can choose what they have equipped through the Buddy Board.
Palamutes have unique equipment called Gear that affects how they fight. You can equip them with two gear pieces out of the variety that you'd unlock through the Buddy Board.
Iori is in charge of the Buddy Scout Facility. He is a unique Kamura resident that has a great relationship with both Palicos and Palamutes.
You can scout or dismiss Buddies (Palicos and Palamutes) in the Buddy Scout facility! This is the main way of searching for specific Buddies you want for your team!
You can set criteria when searching for Buddies. You can change aspects like Coat, Eyes, Ears, and others! For Palicos, you can also choose their support types!
You can hire Buddies from a list where you can view all of their skills and support moves for Palicos. This will allow you to find Buddies that suit the build you want, though it is random so make sure to check back often if you can't find the perfect Buddies for you!
What are Palicoes?
What are Palamutes?
You can rename your existing buddies by talking to Iori! Just choose the Rename Buddy option, pick which Buddy you will rename, then you can proceed to rename them!
The Meowcenaries functions like the Tailrider Safari in Monster Hunter World. You will be able to dispatch several buddies to areas and they would return with materials after some time.
Felyne Chief Kogarashi is a Palico character in charge of the Meowcenaries. He has a huge fan that he uses to boost Meowcenaries while riding kites! It looks very adorable!
The Argosy has not changed its purpose since its conception and it did not change in Monster Hunter's rise. Trading with faraway lands for materials is a very useful feature in Monster Hunter that must remain unchanged. If it isn't broken, don't fix it!
The Argosy allows you to send Buddies on submarines to do trading expeditions in far-off places. They can return specific items you request, as well as bonus items depending on where they get sent!
The Argosy is led by Rondine, a very beautiful lass that reminds us so much of Guildmarm Sophia. She will be in charge of all your trading needs as the representative of the Argosy!
You can also buy special items in exchange for Points from her!
The Buddy Expert Shirubei can also be found in the Buddy plaza. He'll be handling the training for your buddies so make sure that all your vacant buddies are toughening themselves out!
The Buddy Plaza is accessed to the right of Kamura Village, past the bridge leading into the wooded area!
You can also access the Buddy Plaza by fast-traveling to it via the map in Kamura Village.
The Buddy Plaza is available to be accessed once you have complete the training quest Back to Basics.
