The title compound, [PdCl2(C21H17N3)], is a member of a sequence of Pd, Pt and Co dichloride complexes bearing polysubstituted (pyrazol‐1‐ylmethyl)pyridine ligands. It is shown that there is a correlation between the steric bulkiness of the bidentate (pyrazol‐1‐ylmethyl)pyridine ligands and the Pd—Npyrazole distances, i.e. the larger the ligand, the longer the bond. In contrast, no trend is observed between the steric properties of the ligand and the Pd—Npyridine bond lengths.
