Lanturn (ランターン Rantaan) is a Water/Electric-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II and the evolved form of Chinchou.

Lanturn evolves from Chinchou starting at level 27.

Biology

Physiology

Lanturn is a periwinkle Pokémon that resembles a deep sea fish. There are also spots of yellow on its tail and head. On top of Lanturn's head are two glowing organs that allow it to see in its deep, aquatic habitat. Lanturn's antenna produces a light bright enough to be seen from the surface when its swimming deep in the ocean. Its nickname is "the Deep-sea Star."

Behavior

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.
