Pansear is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and is a part of the Pokémon Go Ultra Anniversary event running from Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at 10:00 am local time, to Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at 8:00 pm local time. It is a regional exclusive Pokémon, usually only available in Europe, the Middle East, India and Africa, and will feature in raids for a limited time as a reward for completing the Ultra Unlock at GO Fest Berlin.

Being a pure Fire type, it is weak to the Ground, Rock and Water types.

While neither Pansear nor its evolution Simisear has any meta value, this is a must-raid for two very good reasons:

  • It’s a regional Pokémon and as such, a chance for many to add Pansear and Simisear to their dex.
  • Shiny Pansear makes its debut!

Pansear can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 503 – 546 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 628 – 683 CP at Level 25 with Sunny weather boost

It is an easy solo.
