Evolving Pancham in Pokemon GO is fairly straight forward.

Pokemon GO debuted Pancham during its Luminous Legends X event. Players can catch Pancham after completing the challenge of catching 500 million Fairy-type Pokemon. Alternatively, players can hatch a Strange egg in order to obtain this Fighting-type Pokemon.

How to Evolve Pancham in Pokemon GO

Pancham can evolve into Pangoro, which is a Dark- and Fighting type Pokemon. Pangoro's go-to moves in Pokemon GO include Snarl, Close Combat, and Night Slash. Pangoro's main moves also include Rock Slide and Iron Head.

After catching Pancham, use this Fighting-type Pokemon as your Buddy Pokemon and catch 32 Dark-type Pokemon. You can tag Pancham as your Buddy Pokemon by tapping on Swap Buddies and selecting this Fighting-type Pokemon. After you've caught 32 Dark-type Pokemon, you will need 50 Pancham Candy in order to evolve Pancham into Pangoro.

Players should use Pangoro against Rock-, Ghost-, Psychic, and Dark-type Pokemon. This Pokemon, however, is weak against Fighting-, Flying-, and Fairy-type Pokemon. The best counter Pokemon to use against Pangoro include Sylveon, Xerneas, and Aromatisse.

Pangoro can be ulitized in PvP battles and has a maximum of 2,902 CP points. Designed with panda-like features, the leaf in its mouth is used to notice the attacks of opposing Pokemon.
