Chimecho is a blue and red Pokémon with a bell like object on the top of its head. It's body is a circle but it has a huge tail that resembles a seal and on the bottom of the tail there is some red. By its face there is two upside-down "V" shaped red marks. It has three very small blue arms.

Special abilities

Chimecho only has the ability Levitate. Levitate allows Chimecho to remain invulnerable to Ground-type moves.

In the anime

Chimecho is James's former Pokémon in the Pokémon Anime. Whenever Team Rocket spoke their motto, Chimecho always ends it with "Chime! Chime!". Jessie used Chimecho in the Pokémon Contest before, but lost. Chimecho can use Uproar, which Jessie used to pass the 1st round of the Pokémon Contest, frightening the whole audience. When Chimecho became sick, James left it at his mansion with his Nanny and Pop-Pop. Chimecho is then replaced by Mime Jr. He is not seen later in the anime.


Chimecho evolves from Chingling by leveling up during the night with a high Happiness level.

Pokédex entries



Chimecho appears to be based off a wind chime whilst its name comes from chime and echo.


  • James caught a Chimecho in the 358th episode in the anime, similar to Chimecho's National Pokédex number.
  • Chimeco travels around by floating on the wind. It can use this ultrasonic cries to either communicate with its friends or send its foes flying.
