A Palworld fan has created trading cards based on Pals Foxparks, Gumoss, and an item. Palworld was recently released and quickly took the world by storm to become one of the most talked about releases of the year so far.
Mixing open-world survival and third-person shooting, in Palworld players collect monsters called Pals. To survive on the Palapagos Isles, Palworld players make a base and farm for materials and resources. The Pals that inhabit nature are divided into nine types, such as water and fire, and can be used in battles or breeding. One thing that sets Pals apart is that they can do work tasks such as mining and transportation. Nicknamed “Pokemon With Guns,” Palworld has attracted the attention of many players, and one fan showed their appreciation for the Pocket Pair hit with some creative fan art.

Reddit user TrevorWoodham created trading cards for Pals Foxparks and Gumoss, as well as an item card. Foxparks appear surrounded by flames, one of the reasons why the Fire-type Pal is a must-have for Palworld beginners. The card is a basic one with its own attack and an “on death” description instructing what to do if it dies. Meanwhile, the artist depicts Gumoss throwing some seeds, and, like Foxparks, the Pal has weight and height descriptions, as well as the attack and death ones. The item card they created is called Poor Quality Pelt and has an action explanation.
The Palworld community reacted positively to the OP’s fan art, who said they plan to design a “Palworld Trading Card Game” for all the Pals. Answering one of the comments on the post, they revealed that the trading cards aren’t just a visual project. According to the artist, they have also created the game mechanics, which start with each player having a deck of 50 cards made up of Pals, weapons, items, and resources. Each card has a time counter that works similarly to mana, while the battle area consists of one contender Pal and four backup Pals. As well as explaining the Pokemon TCG-esque mechanics of their project, the artist revealed that they used PainttoolSAI to create the art for the cards, and Photoshop to design the texts and effects.
Palworld is a sales and audience success within just a few days of release, despite some problems the Palworld developers are facing. With the game just beginning its journey in the industry, it won’t be surprising to see an eventual expansion of this universe with other content, such as the potential creation of an official Palworld trading card game.
