Pangoro (ゴロンダ Goronda) is a Fighting/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Pangoro is a huge panda-like Pokémon. It has grey and white fur and a large, fat belly. Its eyes are black and has a branch in its mouth and a furred cape. It has the same angry mood as that of Ursaring and Beartic.

Behavior

Pangoro is one cantankerous, rambunctious Pokémon, but it loses its strength once the bamboo in its mouth is either destroyed or lost. Although that it may get mad easily, its strong heart and defensive to the weak nature is what shapes its personality greatly. To tell the truth, Pangoro is way more fond protecting the weak especially against menacing Dark-type Pokémon.

Pangoro uses its bamboo leaf to detect movement nearby. It boasts tremendous strength and can reduce a large truck to scrap with just a single punch. In the Galar region, Pangoro often have duels with Obstagoon.

Evolution

Pangoro evolves from Pancham at level 32 when the player has a Dark-type Pokémon in their party.

Trivia

  • Pangoro is heavily based on the Bancho japanese delinquent archetype, which are known to be tough punks with a rough and aggressive demeanor, but with a deep sense of honor that protect those weaker than them.
  • Another proof of said motif is the fact Pancham, its pre-evolution and a pure Fighting type, requires a Dark-Type Pokemon in the party in order to evolve. This could be seen as Banchos start by being good kids in their childhood but due to bad influences later in their life, they acquire a more thug-like attitude while remaining good-natured deep inside.
  • Pangoro's fur coat slightly resembles the coat worn by Jotaro Kujo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
  • Despite its plump appearance, Pangoro can't have the ability Thick Fat.

Origin

Pangoro is based on a giant panda. Given its species origin, type, and abilities, Pangoro may also be based on the character Po from the Kung Fu Panda series of animated films. Pangoro's Shiny coloration may reference the Qinling panda (a subspecies of giant panda with reddish-brown hair instead of black hair).

Etymology

Pangoro and Goronda are portmanteaus of panda, gordo (Spanish for "fat," referring to its stout, blubbery belly), gore (mass bloodshed, referring to its violent nature), ごろつき (gorotsuki, rogue), and ゴロゴロ (gorogoro, Japanese for a rumbling sound). The "goro" in both names may also reference the character Goro from the Mortal Kombat series of fighting games.
