    Select your shape, click on gradient icon (it's on Gradient palette) and
    choose radial type. Now it's time to choose colours. You can do it in that
    pallet, in the small squares in the bottom. Click on one of them and then
    check the Color palette. You can choose a colour in the usual way, just be
    careful of not clicking on the big coloured square (which cancels the
    operation). Then click on the other and repeat the process.

    Sorry, I hadn't realized the Pantone part. Go to Windows-> Sample libraries
    and select a Pantone one. Then drag the selected colour onto the small
    square (begin or end) in the Gradient palette.

    Names may differ, my Illustrator is in Spanish.

    This is where you lose me. I can click on the gradient, and it will fill my
    shape with the gradient. However, when trying to change one of the two
    colors (black/white) to something else, it only lets me choose from the CMYK
    color picker. It doesn't let me use my swatches (which include my pantone
    color), nor does it let me use the color picker on the artwork itself.

    Trying to pick a swatch as one of the two gradient colors turns the fill
    into a solid fill. No more gradient.

    Wow, 6 years later here I am replying. These instructions by Alvaro G Vicario were sick. So many long winded instructions out there about gradients and this hit it on the head.

    Thanks man.
