5. Check Your Pal’s Work Suitability

Well, Pals in Palworld has a particular list of works that can be done and can not be done. We recommend you check for the Pal’s work suitability icon on your Pal’s status screen to ensure there is no conflict with the task. Just verify the transport task whether the Pals are suitable for their respective work or not. Just navigate to the Pal Management interface/menu in the game for details about your Pals.

Then search for the ‘Work Suitability’ section in the Pals’ profile. Here highlight the specific work skills and suitability of the Pal. Make sure to identify the ‘Transporting’ trait and verify if your Pals can transport.

6. Rejoin the World

Try returning to the menu and then rejoin the world in Palworld to check for potential glitches. Sometimes in-game glitches or cache data issues can trouble you a lot.

7. Add Pals Back to Palbox

You’ll need to relocate your Base Pals back inside the Palbox to feed them. As long as your Pals are fed and serve to reset their status, their health will generated automatically so that they can move in the map. Open Palbox and deploy the Pals back to your base. If not deployed, your Pals will be in idle mode and won’t move at all.

8. Check Accessibility to Chests

It looks like that checking accessibility to chests can be useful where items are supposed to be transported are accessible by the Pals. If the Pals can’t reach the chests, they won’t be able to transport items in Palworld. You’ll need to position the chests strategically in areas where your Pals are active and move frequently. Well, placing the chests in the centre or easily accessible locations in your camp/base can offer better transportation efficiency.

You’ll also make sure that the pathways leading to the chests aren’t getting blocked by the obstacles. Try clearing any debris or obstacles that may affect the Pals’ movement while approaching the chests. Sometimes temporary graphical glitches in the walls or buildings can also cause stuck movement issues for the Pals.

9. Develop an Alarm Bell

Some players also suggested building an alarm bell using the 5 Palladium Fragments and 20 Stones in Palworld. It’ll help your Pals to get into the alert and work which can fix the movement stuck issue.

10. Check for Inventory Space

Try checking for the inventory space and clearing some items so that your Pals can move within the map and collect items easily. If the inventory is full, your Pals won’t be able to collect items and move to another place in Palworld.

11. Contact Palworld Support

If none of the workarounds help you then try to Contact Steam Support or Contact Pocketpair to submit a support ticket for the issue. It’ll allow the Palworld developers to investigate the issue further.
