Lanturn (Japanese: ランターン Rantaan) is a Water/Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Lanturn in the anime

Lanturn is a periwinkle Pokémon that resembles a deep sea fish. There are also spots of yellow on it's tail and head. On top of Lanturns head are two glowing organs that allow it to see in it's deep, aquatic habitat.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Lanturn, along with its pre-evolved form Chinchou, possesses the abilities Volt Absorb and Illuminate. Volt Absorb heals 1/4 of Lanturn's HP when taken damage by an electric-type attack. Iluminate increases the rate of encountering a wild Pokémon if Lanturn is placed in the first slot of your party.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Lanturn produces a multitude of colors from its fins in order to lure and dazzle its prey. Once prey is in reach, Lanturn will release a sudden burst of light to blind its victim, then swallowing the helpless prey in one big gulp.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Lanturn is the evolved form of Chinchou as of level 27.

Origin[edit | edit source]

Lanturn is based on an anglerfish (Melanocetus johnsoni) . It also has some characteristics of a dolphin.

Name origin[edit | edit source]

Lanturn's name is obviously a misspelling of Lantern.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Lanturn, along with Chinchou, is the only Water-type Pokémon to have Volt Absorb as its ability.
  • Lanturn, along with Chinchou, and Wash Forme Rotom, are the only Water/Electric type combo.
  • Lanturn and its pre-evolution are the non-Generation V Pokémon to have Electric as a secondary type.
