Palworld has been the talk of the town, since its release on January 19, largely due to the millions of players diving into its servers to create their worlds. You’ll come across plenty of Pals during your quest for survival, and you can use them for various things like combat, base building, and gathering resources.

Every Pal has a unique design and can perform several skills based on their type or element, ranging from Electric, Grass, Ground, Water, Ice, Dragon, Neutral, Fire, and Dark. The Water types are strong against Fire types and also help you with Watering your crops.

Whether you’re looking to get the strongest Water Pals in Palworld for engaging in combat, or simply want to add them to your base, here’s our tier list, ranking every Water Pal from best to worst.

While Azurobe’s Level 3 Watering by itself is enough to have this Pal around your base, it also boasts impressive stats to help you overpower Fire types. You can also ride it to travel across water, giving a decent buff to your attacks while mounted.

Azurobe can also perform a few Dragon skills due to being a Dragon and Water type.

True to its name, Suzaku Aqua looks just like Suzaku with a dark blue appearance. It’s one of the few Water Pals that can fly, however, you’ll have to mostly rely on breeding to get it in your party, as you can’t find Suzaku Aqua anywhere on the map.
