In the anime


Chili and Pansear

Pansear is Chili's only known Pokémon. It made its first appearance in Triple Leaders, Team Threats! where Chili introduced it to Ash who scanned it with his Pokédex before battling.

Pansear was the first Pokémon Ash faced in his Striaton City Gym battle, where it went up against Ash's Tepig. Because it was Tepig's first battle with Ash as his Trainer, Chili felt Pansear had the advantage. Pansear managed to put up a good fight against Tepig with its powerful Dig attack, along with Fire Punch that sent Tepig flying. However, Tepig dove into the tunnels after Pansear and bit down on its tail which caused Pansear extreme pain. Tepig then spun Pansear around by its tail and threw it across the field, then followed up with Ember and Tackled it into the wall, knocking Pansear out.

It was later revealed in A Rival Battle for Club Champ! that Pansear had battled against Trip's Servine sometime before Ash arrived at the Gym and lost. It also went up against Burgundy some time after Ash had conquered the Gym, and lost to her as well.

Pansear returned in A Call for Brotherly Love! when Chili arrived at Driftveil City to battle against Cilan, where Pansear happily greeted its friend Pansage. During the battle it revealed to have learned Flame Charge and Fire Blast. Despite having a type advantage, it lost against Pansage. Pansage helped it to its feet, and when Chili tried to recall Pansear, Pansear avoided the Poké Ball's light and Chili scolded it for losing. Angered, Pansear scorched Chili and ran away. After Cilan spoke to Cress, and learned of Chili's situation, the brothers found Pansear eating apples in a tree. When Chili asked Pansear to come down and talk, Pansear threw an apple at him, so Pansage climbed up the tree and tried reasoning with it instead. Chili then climbed up the tree, and apologized to Pansear for getting angry, and told it that he wanted to help it train. Pansear accepted his Trainer's apology, and the pair began taking advice from Cilan.

Chili and Pansear hugging after their victory

Cilan proposed that Pansear should learn a new move since all its moves at the time were Fire-type moves, to help defend it against Water-type Pokémon. So the team decided to help Pansear learn SolarBeam, and they all start to train with it. First they work to absorb the sun's energy, then Pansage teaches it how to harness the energy and fire it in a beam of light. Pansear tried, but failed to successfully use SolarBeam, so they generally worked on training its strength, putting it through various exercises. At the end of the training session, it was successfully able to perform SolarBeam. Overjoyed, Ash challenged Chili to a match to see how much stronger Pansear had gotten. Pansear then battled against Ash's Oshawott and successfully managed to defeat it. Happily, Pansear leapt into Chili's arms and the two embraced in a hug. The pair then thanked Cilan and Pansage for all their help, and bid them farewell.

Personality and characteristics

Pansear is generally friendly and loves to battle. It is very determined to do its best in any circumstance. However, it shares a temper with its Trainer, Chili, as well as a love for food when its upset, something that has been pointed out by Cilan. These similarities often cause the two to butt heads, but they do genuinely care for one another, and the similarities will bring them back together.

Pansear is also shown to have a close relationship with Cilan's Pansage, as the two happily greeted one another before their battle in A Call for Brotherly Love!. It also opened up to Pansage about its woes after it and Chili got in a fight, then later had Pansage teach it SolarBeam.
