Pokemon GO: How to Catch Pancham

Unfortunately, Pancham can't be found in the wild. While players participate in the Luminous Legends X event, Pancham can be rewarded during this event after catching 500 million Fairy-type Pokemon.

Players can complete this challenge that began on May 11 and ends May 17. It is recommended for players to reach level 15 before trying to catch this Pokemon during a raid.

The best counters against Pancham include Flying-, Fairy-, and Psychic-type Pokemon. Players shouldn't use Normal-, Dark-, Bug-, and Rock-type Pokemon. You can then catch Pancham after winning this one-star raid battle.

After the Luminous Legends X event wraps up, Pancham won't be included in raid battles. However, this Fighting-type Pokemon can be hatched from a strange egg. Read more about defeating Team Rocket GO leaders and receiving Strange eggs.

Pancham can be caught at level 20 without a weather boost. After catching Pancham with a weather boost, this Pancham can be caught as a level 25 Pokemon. When using certain Pokemon to counter Pancham, it is recommended to use Pokemon such as Mewtwo, Gengar, Charizard, and Metagross.

Pancham's go-to moves include Low Kick, Crunch, Body Slam, and Low Sweep.
