Could someone find a not squashed image?Eeveewithwings123 (talk) 10:51, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

The image isn't really squashed; it's updating itself with a new version and it hasn't synched up yet. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 11:54, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Movie Reference

Could it be based on Kung Fu Panda? --~Pikalup~ (talk) 16:57, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

No. --Reliジーランス? 17:03, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Really? It's a fighting panda. It hints to that movie at least --~Pikalup~ (talk) 17:18, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Fighting pandas are common in popular media. If I recall correctly, there was a WoW class based on a panda. --Reliジーランス? 17:19, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Or it could relate to China in general, which is known for it's martial arts. Either way, the answer is no. It doesn't even look like Po outside of just being a panda. Ataro (talk) 17:21, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

In China, panda had not known with martial arts until Western culture pass on.

Panda is famous for its lazy and bamboo in China.(E9310103838 (talk) 15:27, 14 May 2013 (UTC))

Change panda to giant panda in the origin section

Theres the red panda, too. Pikachu Bros. (talk) 18:29, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

New Move

Yanchamu was revealed to have a new move called Parting Remark. Should that be added? MasterZ (talk) 22:58, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Not yet, we need to know how it learns Parting Remark but I think that we should make a page for it Cafeolay (talk) 23:52, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Yanchamu Into Pancham

At the top of the Pokémon info box, Pancham is still referred to as Yanchamu in both English and Japanese. In Japanese, it is Yanchamu, but it should say Pancham in the English section. Could someone please change this? Thank you! --ShinyPatch (talk) 15:09, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Name origin?

Could the 'Panch' part also possibly come from 'punch', since it's Fighting Type? Also, should we mention something about the French name having more than 10 letters (it's the first Pokemon that's been announced with more than 10)? Or that its German name has a non alphabetical character in it (the '-' in Pam-Pam)? Magentafeelings (talk) 22:05, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

French name origin

I'd like to point out that the french name Pandespiègle comes from "panda" + "espiègle" (which translates to playful, rascal, impish, etc.) Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 05:41, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

French name.

Didn't international games have like 10 character limit on nicknames (and 5 for japanese)? Or French have longer limit since earlier? Marked +-+-+ (talk) 13:01, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Pancham name origin

Panda + Punch 'em. Kookamooka (talk) 22:12, 18 June 2013 (UTC)

Korea name for Pancham

Its Korean name is 판짱 Pan'jjang.

  • It's just another iteration of all of its name, with 판 pan for "panda"... however 짱 jjang is Korean slang for "best", "top of the top", "super", etc. -- Nick15 (talk) 17:54, 11 July 2013 (UTC)


Pancham should share the same species name with Monferno. They should both be known as the Playful Pokémon. Could someone please change this? Thanks! SaturnMario, his talk and his contributions 02:53, 13 August 2013 (UTC)


A scan from the official Spanish Nintendo Magazine confirms the rumor that Pancham evolves into Pangoro by having a Dark type in the party. Richi3f (talk) 02:18, 11 September 2013 (UTC)

Fairly sure that the mechanics of its evolution are a sort of reference to the concept of someone being a "bad influence" on a child, but I'm not sure how to phrase that for the wiki. I do feel it's worth a mention, though, being at least as important as "Shellmet and Karrablast trade armor".--Pyleic (talk) 20:39, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

About Pancham's condition for evolving.

As Pancham must have a Dark-type in the party, but it doesn't matter if the type is either primary or secondary, right?IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 21:03, 13 May 2014 (UTC)

As far as I'm aware it shouldn't. The type being primary or secondary doesn't make a given Pokémon any less of a Dark-type. For all intents and purposes, Pokémon like Sableye and Spiritomb are just as much Dark-type as the other. Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 21:11, 5/13/2014 (UTC)
Turns out whether the Dark-type(s) are primary, pure, or secondary is indeed irrelevant to Pancham's evolution requirements; all that matters is that one has a Dark-type when or after Pancham has passed that level.IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 05:42, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
What I'm actually curious about is what if the "Dark-type" in question is no longer a Dark-type after the battle is over, but it was while Pancham passed the proper level. i.e. what if a Mega Gyarados is in the party when Pancham levels? Does that meet the requirement? Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 11:47, 5/14/2014 (UTC)
I deduce that you mean whether or not a temporary Dark-type has any effect on Pancham's evolution?IM-T-MAN2 (talk) 13:23, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Tested it. Using Mega Gyarados in the battle that got Pancham enough EXP to level up to 32 did not allow it to evolve. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 19:12, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
Was it Mega Evolved before Pancham leveled up or after it was, out of curiosity? Schiffy (瀬藤健二) (Talk Contribs) 00:03, 5/15/2014 (UTC)
Before. It Mega Evolved and defeated the wild Emolga, and then the Exp Share gave Pancham enough EXP to level up. Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 00:54, 15 May 2014 (UTC)

Pancham can store leaves

It was showed in the anime that Serena's Pancham can store leaves in its fur, in XY48 after Serena finished brushing the Playful Pokémon, Pancham removed its leaf that was inside its fur and in XY56 Pancham removed an extra leaf from its fur in order to feed Ash's Goomy, so is it worth to add this fact in the Biology?
