Pansage (ヤナップ) is the 17th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass Type, and it is known as the Grass Monkey

Pansage uses the Gluttony Ability, which allows it to consume a held Berry sooner as a result of HP loss. Pansage's Hidden Ability is Overgrow, an Ability that increases the power of its Grass-Type moves by 50% once its HP falls below one-third of its maximum.

Pansage can evolve into Simisage by use of a Leaf Stone.

Pansage is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Pansage One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
