COMMENTS

For n = 18, the smallest and largest pandigital squares are 2200667320658951859841 and 39207739576969100808801. For n = 19, they are 104753558229986901966129 and 1972312183619434816475625. For n = 20, they are 5272187100814113874556176 and 104566626183621314286288961.  Chai Wah Wu, May 20 2015
When n is even, (n1) is a factor of the pandigital squares. When n is odd, (n1)/2 is a factor with the remaining factors being odd. Therefore, when n is odd and (n1)/2 has an odd number of 2s as prime factors there are no pandigital squares in base n (e.g. 5, 13, 17 and 21).  Adam J.T. Partridge, May 21 2015

EXAMPLE

For n=4 there is one pandigital square, 3201_4 = 225 = 15^2.
For n=6 there is one pandigital square, 452013_6 = 38025 = 195^2.
For n=10 there are 87 pandigital squares (A036745).
There are no pandigital squares in bases 2, 3, 5 or 13.
Hexadecimal has 3402 pandigital squares, the largest is FED5B39A42706C81.
