Some moves are offensive, dealing damage or buffing buddies and hunters' ability to deal damage, while some are more defense-oriented, boosting defensive capabilities. Some moves can also provide utility by way of healing or trapping monsters, among other effects. Support Moves are used automatically once learned, but the hunter can use a Felvine Bulb to increase the frequency with which Palicoes perform these abilities.
The chart below lists all available Support Moves.
- Each Palico can learn up to five Support Moves, which are pre-determined upon creation or hiring of the Palico.
