  • Pancham is one of only two Pokémon whose ability to evolve depends on having another Pokémon in the party, the other being Template:P, who can only evolve when a Template:P is present in the party. Pancham can evolve if a non-Dark-type Pokémon evolves into a Dark-type Pokémon, such as Template:P to Template:P, but only if it is in a party position before Pancham (i.e. Pancham evolves last). Pokémon that can become Dark-type only while in battle (due to Mega Evolution, or a type-changing move or Ability) cannot cause Pancham to evolve.
  • Pancham shares its Template:Pkmn with Template:P. They are both known as the Playful Pokémon.

Pancham is based on a Template:Wp cub. Its Template:Shiny coloration could be a reference to the Template:Wp, whose coloring tends to be more brown than black.
