Pokemon Go: How to Evolve Pancham Into Pangoro

Watch out for Dark-type Pokemon.

When it comes to evolving Pokemon in Pokemon Go, most pocket monsters can be evolved by simply collecting the required number of Pokemon Candy. However, there are a few Pokemon that have unique evolutionary requirements. For instance, you can only evolve Spritzee into Aromatisse after activating an Incense while Spritzee is your Buddy Pokemon.

Another one of these unique Pokemon is Pancham, a Fighting-type Pokemon from the sixth generation of the Pokemon universe.

As Joe Merrick, webmaster at Serebii, pointed out on Twitter, Pancham can only be evolved into Pangoro after you’ve captured 32 Dark-type Pokemon while Pancham is your Buddy.

Typically, Dark-type Pokemon aren’t very common in Pokemon Go, but at the time of this writing, the Luminous Legends Y event is taking place in the mobile game, which is causing more Dark-type Pokemon than normal to appear in the wild. If you want to add Pangoro to your collection, make sure to make Pancham your Buddy before you start catching these Dark-type pocket monsters!

As you catch Dark-type Pokemon, you can check on your progress by viewing Pancham’s screen in your Pokemon collection. Under the evolve button, you’ll see the text “Adventure together to evolve.” When you tap the down arrow to the left of this text, you’ll see a counter that will show how many Dark-type Pokemon you’ve captured until you hit the requirement of 32.

Once you’ve captured 32 Dark-type Pokemon while Pancham is your Buddy, you can evolve Pancham into Pangoro using 50 Pancham Candy.
