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

It evolves from Chinchou starting at level 27.

Biology

Lanturn is a blue Pokémon that resembles an anglerfish. It has big, red eyes with a yellow mask-like marking around them and small, light blue pectoral fins. The lower half of its tailfin is yellow and has jagged edges. On its back is a Y-shaped antenna with a spherical orb at each tip; this antenna is a modification of its dorsal fin. Inside its orbs are bacteria that produce light by absorbing Lanturn's bodily fluids. It lures prey using the glow, then blinds them by using an intense flash before it swallows them whole. The flash it creates is visible on the surface from a depth of over three miles (five kilometers). This has earned it the nickname "The Deep-Sea Star". Lanturn competes with Lumineon when catching its prey Starmie. Lanturn inhabits the ocean.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Lanturn is based on an anglerfish, more specifically the footballfish, although it shares some similarities with dolphins. It is also possible that Lanturn's origin contains a small piece of Apollo, the Greek god of light whose signature animal was the dolphin.
