If you’re looking to expand your Pal collection in Palworld in exchange for a bit of coin, you’ll want to seek out Black Marketeers, NPCs who sell Pals for a price. Comparatively to regular Pal merchants, it seems like these shady dealers tend to have rarer Pals, making them worth seeking out.

You can catch these guys, but they’re all level 40 (or even 45 sometimes!), so unless you’re equipped with advanced Pal spheres and weapons, we don’t recommend trying it. Once you do catch them, however, you can put them in your base and they’ll sell Pals to you safely from home! You can even instantly refresh their shops by putting them in the PC and taking them back out.


Black Marketeer locations in Palworld

There are a ton Black Marketeers around Palworld’s map, many of whom post up in inconvenient places. But there are seven Black Marketeers that are easily reachable, with fast travel points nearby, in these locations:

  1. Desolate Church/Abandoned Mineshaft
  2. Sealed Realm of the Frozen Wings
  3. Sealed Realm of the Winged Tyrant/Cove Mineshaft
  4. Mount Flopie Summit
  5. Ruined Fortress City
  6. Duneshelter
  7. Icy Weasel Hill

For more details on where to find these Black Marketeers, we’ve ordered them below approximately by area difficulty and nearby Pal levels.
