Pancham #674

Biology

Pancham is a bipedal, mammalian Pokémon that looks like a baby panda. It has a white head and a short, fluffy tail. It features a triangular black snout, rounded black ears, dark rings around its eyes, and fur tufts on top of its head and on each cheek. It has a black upper body and hind feet, and a dark gray bottom body. The dark gray produces a three-pointed design on its breast where the two colors meet. Each paw has three fingers and short, dark brown circular pads on the soles of its black rear paws. Pancham’s mouth is filled with a little green leaf. Aside from the desire to seem hip, there is no real function for this leaf.

Pancham looks up to Pangoro as a leader and attempts to mimic its behavior in order to learn how to fight and search for its food. Pangoro will take away Pancham’s leaf if it commits a huge error. It attempts to seem serious to its enemies, but its stare is ineffective, and if it is distracted, it ends up smirking. Despite its best efforts, it cannot help but smile when rubbed on the head. Parting Shot was Generation VI’s trademark move.
