Pangoro is a giant bipedal Pokémon that looks like a humanoid panda bear. It has a stocky physique, a round tummy, short legs, long arms, and huge paws. It has thick white hair on its head and belly, and thick dark gray fur on its lower torso, chest, limbs, and back. A long cape of this dark gray fur drapes down behind its back, giving the appearance that Pangoro is wearing a long coat and pants when combined with the rest of the dark-furred design. Pangoro’s three-fingered paws feature shorter, darker hair and black claw tips. It features a blunt snout with a triangular black nose, rounded black ears, large fangs in its lower jaw, and invisible black semicircles beneath its forehead. Pangoro enjoys carrying in its mouth a thin-stemmed stalk with two leaves. This little bamboo branch detects movement in its surroundings.

Despite its cantankerous disposition, Pangoro is compassionate to its friends and does not tolerate those who prey on the helpless. With arms strong enough to shatter a telephone pole, it surges into fight like a berserker, unconcerned about whatever harm it may sustain. Pangoro can crush a dump truck in a single blow and uses this ability to bash its opponents. Many Trainers are charmed by its vivacious demeanor; yet, those who want to train a Pangoro for themselves must battle one. It thrives on duels with Obstagoon. Parting Shot was Generation VI’s trademark move.
