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

Biology

Physiology

Lanturn in anime
Lanturn in the anime.

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.

Special abilities

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. Illuminate increases the rate of encountering a wild Pokémon if Lanturn is placed in the first slot of your party.

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.

Evolution

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

  • 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.

Origin

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

Etymology

Lanturn's name is obviously a misspelling of Lantern.
