The Young impling is an impling that can be caught in the Impetuous Impulses minigame, and are located throughout Puro-Puro and Gielinor. The player needs at least 22 Hunter to capture this type of impling.

They can be caught with a butterfly net, magic butterfly net, sacred clay butterfly net, or volatile clay butterfly net. In Puro-Puro, a net and empty jars are required to catch any implings.

In Gielinor, they can also be caught barehanded or while wielding any item, with or without an empty impling jar. Without an empty jar player will immediately receive the loot from the impling, instead of the impling itself.

Once these requirements have been met the player simply needs to click on the impling, and the character will attempt to catch it, though there is a chance of failure, in which case the character will continue trying to do so until it is caught. Bind, Snare or Entangle can be cast on implings to prevent them from moving for different periods of time.

When the impling is finally jarred the player can either trade with Elnock Inquisitor or can free the young impling from the young impling jar, which will leave an item behind. The player can either get 3 impling jars for one young impling or, with 3 baby implings and 1 gourmet impling, can get a can of Imp repellant. Capturing a young impling will grant the player either 48 (if caught on Puro-Puro) or 65 (if caught on Gielinor) hunter experience.

Players looking for rarer implings would do well to catch any low level implings they see in order to encourage the respawning of higher level implings. The reverse is also true: that catching only higher level implings will result in mainly low level implings wandering around largely ignored.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When players would get a Hunter level of 22, the message used to read: "You can now catch Adolescent implings." This has been changed to "You can now net young implings."
  • Its examine text includes the line "It's not fair!" This is a stereotypical line associated with teenagers and their perceived sense of attitude in popular culture.
