Why is Pythagorean theorem important in geometry?

It finds the third side of the right triangle when the two sides are available. That helps to figure out the circumference of the triangle, it also helps find the length of the diagonal of the square or a rectangle. It helps finding areas and circumpherences of polygons, it helps with construction of polygons, etc... Generally it is one of the most basic and fundamental theorems.
