Lurantis (Japanese: ラランテス Lalantes) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Fomantis when leveled up in the day starting at level 34.

Biology

Lurantis is a plantlike Pokémon that resembles an insect. The top half of its head is light pink, while the bottom half is white. It has light red eyes, and two green antennae with a small green lump between them. There are four extensions to the top half of its head: two on the top with red tips that resemble ears, and one on each side with white tips that resemble stylized hair. It has a light pink body with wavy, skirt-like extensions around the waist and a green abdomen and neck. Its thin, white arms end in large, red scythes with white along the bottom rim and a single green claw on the tip. There are vertical, pink-and-red stripes down its legs, which have small, pointed green feet. The coloring and shape of Lurantis's body and arms give it the appearance of wearing a long-sleeved dress, while its legs are similar to pants. Four red, wing-like appendages sprout from its back, each tipped with white.

Lurantis both looks and smells like a flower, a trait that it exploits to lure foes in for a surprise attack. Its brilliant coloration and elegant moves have earned it acclaim as the most glamorous Grass-type Pokémon. However, it does disguise itself as a Bug Pokémon for protection. Maintaining its appearance requires detailed grooming. If a Trainer does a good job caring for it, Lurantis will have an easier time trusting them than a lazy Trainer and have gorgeous, brilliant colors.[1]

By gathering light, Lurantis can fire laser beams using its sickle-like arms. These beams can cleave metal plates and allow it to perform Solar Blade, its former signature move.

Sun It requires a lot of effort to maintain Lurantis's vivid coloring, but some collectors enjoy this work and treat it as their hobby.
Moon It fires beams from its sickle-shaped petals. These beams are powerful enough to cleave through thick metal plates.
Ultra Sun For self-protection, it pretends to be a bug Pokémon. Both of its arms bear keen-edged petals.
Ultra Moon As it slashes into its enemies, it looks like it's dancing. Its elegant appearance has led some to call it the most glamorous Grass Pokémon.

Trivia

Origin

Lurantis may be based on the orchid flower along with the orchid mantis, reversing the mimetic relationship between those two organisms. It also seems to be inspired by a kimono.

Name origin

Lurantis may be a combination of lure, allure, fleur (French for flower), and mantis.

Lalantes may be a combination of 蘭 ran (orchid) and a corruption of mantis.
