The Palico can use one of five Support Types. You can choose to scout for Palicoes which have the Support Type of your choice, so be sure to pick the one which best suits your playstyle.
Healer is the best choice for new players
Assist is the best choice for confident hunters
Switch to Gathering when farming materials
If you're new to Monster Hunter and not sure which type will suit you, you can't go wrong with the Healer Support Type. Palicoes with Healer moves will create healing items which can mean the difference between life and cart.
If you run out of healing items or are suddenly inflicted with a status ailment, you'll want to have a Healing Palico on your side. As Palamutes already serve as attackers, and are unable to use healing techniques, specializing your Palico to be a healer will ensure a great contribution.
Unlike healing items, the number of trap items usable by a hunter is limited, and these items take time and preparation to set up. Having a partner who can create opportunities to disable Monsters in the middle of battle and make them vulnerable to attacks is the most a hunter could possibly ask for.
Upon reaching level 20, an Assist Palico will learn Poison Purr-ison, which can be used together with items like the Large Barrel Bomb to deal heavy damage.
To provide some balance in the style of support, it can be helpful to have an Assist-type Palico with one or two Healer Equipped Moves, granting some defensive coverage as well.
When you're out in the field to gather items for your next hunt, a Gathering Support Type will be the perfect fit for you. Gathering Support Type Palicos have a much higher rate of items collected at the end of the hunt. When the Gathering Palico reaches level 20, they can also start getting materials from large monsters with the Gathering Equipped Move, Pilfer.
However, you will need to be careful when fighting monsters with a Gathering Palico, as they may be vulnerable to monster attacks and end up not collecting anything.
At the current time, it seems that the Support Type for a Palico cannot be changed. If you're hoping to make a strong bond with your initially selected Palico, be sure to select the Support Type which will best suit your playing style.
If you are unhappy with your selected Support Type, it's easy to train a new Palico, so try recruiting one with your ideal Support Type and Equipped Moves at the Buddy Scout in Buddy Plaza.
Similar to the Palico Gadgets in previous games, each Palico will use Equipped Moves which allow them to perform specific actions in battle.
Each of the five Support Types has five moves associated with it, and each Palico has a total of five Equipped Moves which cannot be changed. The first and last of the five Equipped Moves will always match the Palico's Support Type, but the middle three Moves may be from a different Support Type, allowing for Palicoes who are capable of multiple roles.
Palicoes will only have one of their five Equipped Moves available at level 1, gaining access to an additional Equipped Move at levels 5, 10, 15, and 20.
