The playful panda arrives in Pokmon Go.
Pancham, along with its evolution Pangoro, have been released into Pokémon Go as part of the Luminous Legends X event.
Thanks to Pancham being a one-star raid boss, you should be able to use your knowledge of its counters and weaknesses to defeat it all by yourself. Don’t forget to utilize your Remote Raid passes either!
After the Luminous Legends X event ends, Pancham will be available via Strange Eggs, which can only be acquired by defeating a Team Go Rocket Leader or Giovanni. So, if you want to save yourself a look of egg hatching time, we recommend trying to hunt down a Pancham in a raid.

Everything you need to know about Pancham
Pancham was released into Pokémon Go after players worldwide managed to complete the Global Challenge of catching 500 million fairy-type Pokémon during the Luminous Legends X event.
Pancham can evolve into Pangoro through the use of 50 Pancham Candy. This evolution method is a lot more straightforward compared to evolving Pancham in the main-line games, where you need to both reach Level 32 and have a dark-type Pokémon in your party for it to occur.
Both Pancham and Pangoro are clearly inspired by pandas; Pancham itself is based upon a giant panda cub, while Pangoro is drawn from the giant panda.
