Where to find and catch Lovander in Palworld

Lovander is the Pal of thirsty players and let's not pretend it's not.

Lovander is a neutral element Pal described as a Pal that’s always on the lookout for a bit of romance. This Pal has been rumored to drop Cake, a necessary material for anyone looking to breed eggs. But naturally, you’ll need to find the locations Lovander spawns first and foremost.

If you love a charming Pal or you’re a collector, read this guide to learn how to find and catch Lovander in Palworld.

Lovander location in Palworld

Lovander is located exclusively in the desert areas of the Palworld map, and it only appears at night. The best place to find Lovander is near the Investigator’s Fork Fast Travel statue, which should spawn several Lovander around level 19.

You won’t come across Lovander in other biomes or during daylight hours. Generally, you’ll find Lovander either alone or accompanied by another of its kind. But if your world settings are adjusted to increase Pal spawn rates, you may encounter a larger group.

Tip: the Desert is HOT!

Before venturing into the Desert, make sure to prepare for the high temperatures with the Tropical Outfit and the Heat Resistant Pelt Armor.

How to catch Lovander in Palworld

If you venture to the Desert area in the center of the map, right within the Forest biome, you’ll encounter Lovander. Capturing Lovander requires Pal Spheres of varying rarities, depending on the Pal’s level. A Giga Pal Sphere guarantees a 100-percent catch rate, especially when its HP is low.

However, in the northeastern desert biome, Lovander appears at a higher level (around level 38), forcing you to use a Hyper or Ultra Pal Sphere to stand a chance at capturing it.

How to breed Lovander in Palworld

You can use several Pal pairs to breed Lovanders in Palworld. If catching the Pal feels like too much of a chore or you’ve already got some of the Pals listed below, this might be the preferred option. Here are the combinations that will produce Lovander:

  • Incineram and Killamari
  • Mossandra and Vixy
  • Mossandra and Cremis
  • Sweepa and Lamball
  • Nitewing and Cremis
  • Nitewing and Cattiva

Lovander is an amazing Pal to have within your camp because it helps with medicine, mining, and more.
