Cilan's Pansage (Japanese: デントのヤナップ Dent's Yanappu) is the first Pokémon Cilan was known to have and is considered his "premium brand Pokémon". He first appeared in Triple Leaders, Team Threats!.

In the anime

Pansage is Cilan's first known Pokémon; he made his first appearance in Triple Leaders, Team Threats! where he showed it to Ash who scanned him on his Pokédex before battling.

Pansage was the third and final Pokémon Ash faced in his Striaton City Gym battle, where he went up against Ash's Oshawott. However, Pansage dodged all of his attacks with ease and hit Oshawott quite hard with Bullet Seed and Bite attacks. After Oshawott finally hit a midair Pansage with Water Gun, Pansage started charging SolarBeam, which petrified Oshawott with fear. He appeared again in Dreams by the Yard Full! where Oshawott deflected the SolarBeam and Pansage was soon defeated by Oshawott, earning Ash his first Badge in the Unova region. At the end of the episode, Cilan takes Pansage with him while he travels with Ash and Iris.

In The Bloom Is on Axew!, Cilan used Pansage in a battle against Iris's Axew to help Axew gain some battle experience. Even though Pansage significantly lowered his own attack power (twenty percent lower, according to Cilan), Axew was thrown off by his attacks. The battle ended when Axew used Dragon Rage, but he accidentally misfired it, which caused a massive explosion that took Pansage, as well as everyone else, by surprise.

In A Home for Dwebble!, Pansage was used to help track down a group of Dwebble by using Dig. He was accidentally injured by the one Dwebble that it was trying to help. He was hit in the head by a small rock. Dwebble apologized and a friendship was formed between the two Pokémon. He later fell ill because of the injury and was given an herbal remedy made by Iris. In the morning, after Pansage recovered, he assisted Dwebble in getting its rock back. Pansage was very happy when Dwebble decided to travel with Cilan and himself, so that their friendship could continue.

Pansage battled against Burgundy, another Pokémon Connoisseur in A Connoisseur's Revenge!. Cilan chose him to battle her Sawsbuck, which it defeated after confusing it with Dig and hitting it with strong Bullet Seed and SolarBeam attacks, not taking a single hit in the process, showing that Pansage was a better battler than Ash and Iris originally thought.

Pansage's abilities as a swimmer were shown in A Fishing Connoisseur in a Fishy Competition!. Cilan used him in a fishing competition to battle a wild Basculin both in and out of the water. He was able to subdue it with SolarBeam and Cilan was able to capture it. However, it was later released. Later, Pansage was used to help stop Team Rocket from stealing the Pokémon that were captured by the fishing competition contestants.

Cilan and Pansage in the anime

In Movie Time! Zorua in "The Legend of the Pokémon Knight"!, Pansage appeared in Luke's movie alongside Cilan, as the main antagonists of the film. Later when Team Rocket had stolen Zorua he switched roles and helped save Zorua when Cilan began to ad-lib his part, claiming to be a Magician now freed by Team Rocket's evil influence.

In Battle For The Underground!, he was let out of his Poké Ball by Snivy when she found it amongst those that Team Rocket had stolen from the Nimbasa Pokémon Center, to help everyone escape from Team Rocket's train, however his Bullet Seed was not strong enough to break through the door. He later helped fight of Dr. Zager's helicopter, while the other Pokémon worked out an escape.

In Lost at the Stamp Rally!, Pansage teamed up with Tepig when his Trainer Cilan and Ash won a battle against Subway Bosses Ingo and Emmet. Battling their Eelektross and Chandelure, Pansage performed well, making use of the railings around the battle field. He and his partner battled well but were eventually defeated.

In A Call for Brotherly Love!, Cilan used Pansage to battle with Chili's Pansear, after they were challenged. During the battle, Pansage was revealed to know Rock Tomb, which he used to defeat the High Temp Pokémon. He also calmed Pansear down after it had a fight with its Trainer. Pansage, Cilan and the others all later helped Chili and Pansear train and even learn his own most powerful attack: SolarBeam.

In Stopping the Rage of Legends! Part 1, Cilan called upon Pansage to hold off Tornadus while Ash, Iris and Lewis ran ahead to Landorus's shrine. However, Pansage was soon overcome by the legendary Pokémon who had a type advantage and was returned to his Poké Ball. Then in the next episode, he helped rescue the Kami trio from Team Rocket after they were captured, repeatedly using SolarBeam on Dr. Zager's helicopter until he was joined by Pikachu, Ash's Roggenrola, Iris's Axew and Emolga to cause the forcefield prisons trapping the trio to break.

In Cilan Takes Flight!, Cilan called upon Pansage to participate in Skyla's 'Air battle' simulation. Skyla then predicted that Pansage would not be able to beat her Flying-type Pokémon. Pansage battled Skyla's Swoobat and proved her right by falling quickly to Swoobat's Air Cutter and Gust attacks without landing a single hit.

Pansage was Cilan's chosen Pokémon for the Clubsplosion tournament. He battled Flora's Gothorita in The Clubsplosion Begins! for the first round. After his SolarBeam collided with Gothorita's Psyshock, Pansage was able to win the battle, using Dig whilst covered by the smoke created by the collision. He later battled Stephan's Sawk in A Clubsplosion of Excitement!. Pansage was overwhelmed when Sawk easily defended against his Bullet Seed with Close Combat and hit him hard. Pansage attempted to stop Sawk's Karate Chop with Bite, but it only allowed Sawk a better method of attack, slamming Pansage to the ground. After the brutal attack, Pansage was able to stand back up, only to immediately be defeated by Low Sweep, knocking Cilan out of the tournament.

In Piplup, Pansage, and a Meeting of the Times!, he was chosen to battle Dawn and her Piplup. However, Pansage found it difficult to compete with Piplup's Pokémon Contest techniques; having a Bullet Seed knocked back at him by Drill Peck and Rock Tomb destroyed by a BubbleBeam Counter Shield. Eventually, Pansage launched a SolarBeam which clashed with Piplup's Ice Beam causing a firework-like explosion. Upon seeing this, Meloetta became over-excited and interrupted the battle; Jervis then called an official time out.

In Jostling for the Junior Cup!, Pansage was used in the first round of the Pokémon World Tournament Junior Cup against Shepherd's Galvantula and won the battle. Thus, Cilan advanced to the second round.

Personality and characteristics

Pansear and Pansage

Much like his Trainer, Pansage is kind and cheerful to others. He was patient and gentle when battling the severely disadvantaged Axew in The Bloom Is on Axew! as well as on the wild Venipede in A Venipede Stampede!. He had no problem with adjusting his own attack power on these Pokémon. He is also shown to be very forgiving in A Home For Dwebble! as he held no grudge against Dwebble despite being injured by it and eventually made ill. However, he can also be very competitive as seen in A Connoisseur's Revenge! when he battled against Burgundy's Sawsbuck, as well as quick tempered as seen in Emolga and the New Volt Switch! when he was suddenly attacked while taking a nap and knocked out Minccino without being given orders.

Pansage was shown to have a close relationship with Chili's Pansear in A Call for Brotherly Love!, as the two happily greeted each other with a handshake. It also consoled Pansear after it and Chili had a fight, and was happy to train with it so Pansear could learn SolarBeam.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Cilan's Simisage in Pokémon Adventures

Simisage is Cilan's only known Pokémon in Pokémon Adventures that first appeared as a Pansage. Simisage also assists Cilan and his brothers in the kitchen by using its leaves to make delicious tea for customers. Simisage, as a Pansage, first appeared with its Trainer at the Striaton Gym where it uses the leaves in its head to prepare tea for Black, Cheren and Bianca.

Later, it is used in the Gym battle against Black, Cheren and Bianca alongside Cilan's brothers' Pokémon. They proved powerful against Black's Tep, Bianca's Oshawott and Cheren's Snivy with their type advantages. Although it managed to defeat Bianca's Oshawott and break its scalchop, Tep managed to revive its fallen teammates with some healing leaves that were previously knocked off of Pansage's head. With Chili's Pansear defeated, the challengers won the match when the time limit ends due to them having three Pokémon able to battle while the Gym Leaders only had two.

As a Pansage

Much later, Pansage was used to battle the Shadow Triad where it evolves during the battle with the use of a Leaf Stone.
