There are many variations of flying mounts among these friends, but these seem to be the best “tagging” mounts. If you need something between Astegon and Faleris, Shadowbeak, Quivern, and Ragnahawk are great mid-game upgrades that offer over 800 run speed and over 1000 sprint speed.
But what about floor supports? Well, Necromus is the fastest pure land mount in the world. World Councilor. Their 900 Run/1600 Sprint is simply hard to beat. More importantly, they are one of the few friends in the game that can double jump, making them even more valuable as mounts.
As for the fastest mounts early in the game, Sweepa and Rumpo will almost inevitably be your first ground mounts. They get the job done, but you'll want to replace them with Maraith, Arsox, Azurobe, Chillet, or Grintale, all of which offer 600 Run/800 Sprint stats. Blazehowl, Fenglope, Direhowl, and Pyrin will be your main upgrades from here, as they all offer 750+ run speed and 900+ sprint speed. After all, Pyrin's 850 Run/1300 Sprint ratings make it the fastest mount on earth before you start looking at Legendary Pal's capabilities. Once again, Fenglope can double jump, which can make her more valuable for your specific needs. Of course, Jetragon is still the fastest mount in the world. World Councilor in all known categories.
However, please note that you can improve the base speed of any mount through breeding. There are four breeding traits in the game that positively affect movement speed, and giving them all to a friend will increase their movement speed by up to 75%. However, logistics and limitations Palworld's The breeding system means that you may not be able to give all of these traits to a friend for a while. Regardless, putting one or two of these breeding buffs on a mount can speed them up considerably.
Finally, please note that each friend in the game has its own stamina meter, which will slowly deplete as you mount it. This stat is separate from your player character's stamina stat and will not increase as you level up your character. Currently, the only known ways to increase a friend's base stamina are to play on a custom server with custom stamina rules, or to use the Pal Condenser to combine duplicate friends into a more powerful version of that friend. There may be times when a friend's stamina will affect your decision to use it as a mount, although the known stamina values seem to be relatively in line with the friend's known speeds. Likewise, the ability, type, and skills of a mounting partner can ultimately determine whether you use them as quickly.
