Sorry how do pi bonds affect hybridization? Thanks!

Pi bonds do not affect hybridization. They are generally p orbitals that have not hybridized that are overlapping side by side.

These lobes are often parallel to each other unlike sigma bonds which overlap directly.

I tend to think of hybridization in terms of areas of electron density. So you can figure out hybridization by counting the number of sigma bonds and lone pairs.

Unhybridized orbitals are used to make pi bonds
