Pansear, the High Temp Pokémon. Pansear lives in caves near volcanoes. The temperature on the tuft on its head can reach 600 degrees when it’s angry.
– Ash’s Pokedex
Pansear is the fire of the elemental monkey trio. You’ll be given one if you picked the water starter Oshawott, before your first gym battle. If you picked the grass starter like I did, then you’ll battle Chili, who has a Pansear, for your first gym battle.
It’s the “hear no evil” of the 3 wise monkeys. It’s the only non-gen-I fire Pokemon to evolve by fire stone. As always, its Pokedex entries exaggerate the temperature; 600 degrees F is very very hot, even if it is the “High Temp Pokemon”.
Stat-wise, it’s fast and has equal Attack and Sp Attack, but not very good defense stats.
