Every Pokémon in Pokémon Go requires a certain amount of candy to power it up and evolve it. Players can earn a Pokémon’s candy by capturing multiples of it, transferring them, or walking with Pancham while they’re a trainer’s buddy. A handful of Pokémon may require a few extra steps. The Luminous Legends X event introduced Spritzee and Swirlix, a pair of Fairy-type Pokémon that required you to complete quests to unlock their evolutions. On May 11 of the event, Pancham made its debut in the game and also came with a quest requirement to evolve it into Pangoro.

If you want to evolve your Pancham into a Pangoro, you need to capture 32 Dark-type Pokémon. This can be any Dark-type Pokémon in Pokémon Go. These types of Pokémon appear nearby movie theaters, cemeteries, at night, and nearby landmarks. Your best option is to wander around when it’s night out.

You do need to make Pancham is your buddy while you capture these Dark-type Pokémon. If you don’t, it will not count towards the progress of the quest. You don’t want to catch any Dark-type Pokémon and not have it count, so ensuring Pancham is your partner at the time until the quest is finished is your best bet.

Once you complete all 32 captures, you can evolve your Pancham into a Pangoro. You also need to have at least 50 Pancham candies.
