Chandelure (Japanese: シャンデラー Shanderaa) is a Ghost/Fire-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Biology

Physiology

Chandelure is a black and purple Pokémon that resembles a ghostly chandelier. It possesses a large round glass head containing blazing purple flames which flare out from the top and multiple arms tipped with purple flames extending out from its base. It has two black arms with two candle-like extensions sprouting from each arm. Its mouth area consists of black stitch-like designs, and it has two large circular gleaming yellow eyes.

Behavior

Legend claims that by waving its arms about, Chandelure is able to mesmerize its victims and drain their life force in order to power up its own flames; any victim drained of their spiritual essence would end up as a hollow shell. However, Chandelure appears to be a very loyal and safe Pokémon when owned by an experienced trainer.

Evolution

Chandelure is the final Evolution of Litwick, and evolves from Lampent, at any level, with the use of a Dusk Stone.

Appearances

Anime

Ingo's Chandelure in the anime.

Subway Boss Ingo owns a Chandelure, while his twin brother, Subway Boss Emmet, owns an Eelektross. Ingo's Chandelure helped to thwart Team Rocket's scheme in Battle for the Underground!. It later appeared once more in Lost at the Stamp Rally! where Ingo used it to battle alongside Emmet's Eelektross against Ash's Tepig and Cilan's Pansage in a Battle Subway double battle. Ingo's Chandelure and Emmet's Eelektross, being powerful and fully-evolved, defeated Ash and Cilan's Pokémon and won the battle.

Trivia

  • Chandelure is one of the few Pokémon that can have the Shadow Tag ability. However, it can only have it as a hidden ability in the Fifth Generation.
  • Despite Chandelure possessing the ability to hover, it doesn't have the ability Levitate.
  • Chandelure is one of only four stage 2 Ghost-type Pokémon. The others are Gengar, Dusknoir and Aegislash.
  • In PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond, this Pokémon is the keeper of the Attraction 'Dance Inferno'.

Origin

Chandelure is based on a haunted chandelier. The flames of this Pokémon's line are a play on the depiction of ghosts/spirits appearing as ghastly flames/lights in Japanese culture, and possibly the legend of the will-o'-the-wisp.

Etymology

Chandelure comes from chandelier and lure.
