Pancham is a Tier 1 raid boss and makes its debut as a challenge reward for catching 500 million Fairy type Pokémon.

Pancham is a pure Fighting type Pokémon that evolves into the menacing Fighting Dark Pangoro. As such, Pancham is boosted in the Cloudy weather and is weak to the Fairy Flying and Psychic type Pokémon. As a Tier 1 raid boss, Pancham can be effortlessly soloed. However, for trainers below the level of 15, a party of six Pokémon that do super-effective damage would suffice.
