Hoocrates is a Dark element type Pal in Palworld. It can be found all over Palpados, but only comes during nighttime. While it may not be the best base worker out there, Hoocrates can be a valuable asset in an active party centered around other Dark Pals. It can also be farmed for the High-Grade Technical Manual it drops.


Hoocrates is an avian Pal resembling a small wise owl with goth-like features. Its plumage mostly consists of dark grey feathers, but it has a white circle on its belly. Its thick white eyebrows, the wizard hat adorning its head, and the lightning bolt pattern on its belly are some of its features that stick out the most, and are indicative of Hoocrates's wisdom.
