I buy pandemic few days ago.
I want to know if it's normal that the color of pawns for the dispatcher( it should be pink) and researcher( should be less dark) are more darker than on the cards(for me it's kind of not really the same color).

I know the researcher is usually a really dark brown, but that does seem a bit dark for the pinkish dispatcher.

Just got mine as well and that's how my pawns look. Recent dye mixture in the molds maybe?

I just got my game as well; my Researcher pawn looks like yours, but my Dispatcher pawn is a purple color (so definitely not red!)

Pretty much a common thing for those two pawns. Researcher is the same color of brown that Chessex used for their single color brown dice with white pips. Always confuse that pawn with Bio-Terrorist and Colonel's (BT is black and Colonel is supposed to be navy, but same kind of 'off black' in a different color)

Even with my Pandemic set from a couple of years ago the pawn colour matching is not ideal. I was thinking of a replacement pawn set but we got used to them in the end.

With how some of the colors are too similar after introducing the expansions, definately going to go with some role meeples from Meeplesource,

Looks like actual miniatures may be available with a Kickstarter relaunch:

Thanks Ethan but it does look like they're having some problems. From their KS page...

I always found original Pandemic pawns weren't well colour matched. Was okay.
