Pancham (ヤンチャム Yanchamu) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Pancham is a little panda Pokémon. It has a black and white fur and has a green leaf sticking out of its mouth. It resembles Cubchoo and Teddiursa in that all three are bears in appearance.

Behavior

Pancham is always seen with its signature leaf in its mouth. To Pancham, the leaf may be able to show others that it can also be intimidating; as most intimidating people unusually chew on some kind of leaf. It seems to always glare intensely at the opponents, but since it's young, this act isn't persuasive at all and rarely succeeds, thus it always gets easily disappointed. However, when it gets stroked on the head, it will suddenly show a face full of joy and kindness.

Evolution

Pancham can be evolved into a Pangoro at level 32 with a Dark-type Pokémon in the team.

Pokédex entries

  • X

    It does its best to be taken seriously by its enemies, but its glare is not sufficiently intimidating. Chewing on a leaf is its trademark.

  • Y

    It does its level best to glare and pull a scary face, but it can't help grinning if anyone pats its head.

  • Omega Ruby

    It does its best to be taken seriously by its enemies, but its glare is not sufficiently intimidating. Chewing on a leaf is its trademark.

  • Alpha Sapphire

    It does its level best to glare and pull a scary face, but it can't help grinning if anyone pats its head.

  • Sun

    It grows up imitating the behavior of Pangoro, which it looks up to as a leader.

  • Moon

    There's no point to the leaf in its mouth, aside from an effort to look cool. It's mischievous, so it's not well suited to inexperienced Trainers.

  • Ultra Sun

    It follows Pangoro around like a henchman. When Pancham makes a big mistake, its leaf gets taken away.

  • Ultra Moon

    It’s desperate to intimidate its opponents. Be nice and pretend to be scared if you catch it glaring at you intensely.

  • Sword

    It chooses a Pangoro as its master and then imitates its master's actions. This is how it learns to battle and hunt for prey.

Serena's Pancham

Main article: Serena's Pancham

Two Pancham made a debut appearance in The Bamboozling Forest!.

A Pancham appeared under the ownership of Myron.

Trivia

  • Pancham is the second Pokémon to be based on a Panda, the first being Spinda.
  • Pancham actually looks like a Panda physically and in coloration, unlike Spinda, which looks more like a spotted rabbit.
  • Pancham and Riolu are the only pure Fighting-type Pokémon whose evolved form is not a pure Fighting-type, but instead a Fighting and Steel or Dark.
    • Ironically, this makes them weak to their primary type.
  • Pancham, along with Mantyke, is the only Pokemon to require a certain type of Pokemon to be in the party in order to evolve (Pancham needs a Dark type in the party in order to evolve).
  • Pancham is one of the 16 Pokemon to be made into a puppet in Japan.

Origin

Pancham is based on a baby panda.

Etymology

Pancham's name comes from the animal panda and champion.
