New Special Buddies



MEOW LIMIT! was made available for hire through Iori the Buddy Handler under the Hire a Special Buddy option. It is available to claim starting January 21, 2022. Don't forget to claim MEOW LIMIT! from Senri the Mailman first!

Special Palico: MEOW LIMIT!

Furbidden Acorn Heals a Buddy and temporarily prevents loss of its health.
Health Horn Greatly recovers Buddy and player health.

MEOW LIMIT! is great for hunters who are looking for the perfect healer Palico, with all of its moves being of the healing-type. All of its skills are also extremely defensive, so if you're looking to beef up your defenses, MEOW LIMIT! is a great candidate!

MHC Palamute and Yasu

MHC Palamute Yasu

Both Buddies are now available for hire through the Buddy Handler under Hire a Special Buddy option. These Buddies were released on December 24, 2021.

Health Up (S) 1
Health U (L) 2
Attack Up (S) 1
Attack Up (L) 2
Ranged Attack Up 2
Element Attack Up 2
Status Attack Up 3
Knockout King 1

Do not let MHC Palamute slip by your radar. If you level it up and unlock all its skills and memory slots, you can easily turn it into an offense-focused Palamute with skills such Attack Up (S), Attack Up (L), and Elemental Attack Up.

Special Palico: Yasu

Skill Name Slots Required
Health Up (S) 1
Health Up (L) 2
Attack Up (S) 1

Whirlwind Assault Spins around using weapon to create a whirlwind, then rams into monster.
Power Drum Sounds a drum that raises attack and defense for both hunters and Buddies.
Fleet-foot Feat Draws a monster's attention, skillfully evades their attack, then mounts a counter attack.
Furr-ious Your Palico becomes fur-ious. In this state, their attack power increases drastically.

Yasu is easily the frontrunner for a fight-type Palico, its skills and equipped moves, once unlocked, make a great offense-focused Palico much like MHC Palamute.
