Why the heck is Pancham so AWFUL

#1HHH is the gamePosted 3/31/2014 7:37:56 AM
I'm currently a bit overwhelmed by this game. I have so many Pokemon I like I'm switching between a lot and training all. Right now I actively train (Without EXP share)

Charmeleon
Braixen
Fletchinder
Pidgeotto
Litleo
Kadabra
Axew
Sylveon
Pancham
Skiddo
Psyduck
Diggersby
Vivillon

I enjoy training all of them though I admit it's starting to make the game drag as they seem to be levelling slower and I'm really overleveled.

Most of these Pokemon I'm happy with.

EXCEPT FOR PANCHAM

He doesn't have a GREAT nature (High Sp. Def, Low Defense) but I figured at least his speed and attack aren't lowered and it's just in game.

BUT THIS GUY SUCKS. He never does any damage and dies instantly. Is he just super weak? Here's his stats

Level 26
HP: 71
Attack: 51
Defense: 44
Sp. Atk: 29
Sp. Def: 32
Speed :31

pancham suffers from pokemons angry bear syndrome. of the three bear stages we have none really are as great as they want to be. nor are any of them as powerful as your lead to believe. Pancham is made worse by not having the elemental punches yet, even though they went ahead and gave it iron fist as an ability.

It honestly feels like all my Pokemon get crushed by the wild ones now by Route 12, though Pancham is worst

Just curious: have you evolved Pancham yet? His evolution method is really obscure and potentially a pain in the ass, so I imagine it's possible you think he sucks because he hasn't evolved yet.

Admittedly though I'm a little biased as Pangoro is a mainstay of my team.

Doesn't Pancham have to be lv 32 + a Dark type in the party to trigger its evolution

You're leveling 20 pokemon without exp share? You're making this really hard on yourself.

yeah it wasnt so bad at first but now they're starting to level up really slowly. I dont like EXP share because I like to train my pokemon directly but there's SO MANY pokemon in this game. I might drop Vivillon and Pancham though at this rate, since they don't seem to add much.

Vivillon consider keeping, of all the early bugs he's the best, he's the Staraptor in that regard although not as quick to get good + his typing still sucks.

Pancham you gotta evolve first, like most dark types his first form is a little weak.
