How to find and catch Pokémon Lanturn?

Pokémon Lanturn may be found at universities, museums, libraries, and huge retail malls. Lanturn is most often seen in regions related with electricity, such as industrial sites and railroad stations. It may also be captured near any body of water, including the borders of ponds, rivers, oceans, and marshes. The city is surrounded with fountains, swimming pools, and water parks.

Lanturn occurs on the map rather seldom. You may also get it by evolving the Chinchou Pokémon.


Lanturn is a blue piscine Pokémon that looks like an anglerfish. It features large, red eyes surrounded by a yellow mask-like pattern and tiny, light blue pectoral fins. Its tailfin’s bottom half is bright with jagged edges. A Y-shaped antenna with a spherical orb at each point is located on its back; this antenna is a modification of its dorsal fin. Bacteria within its spheres create light by ingesting Lanturn’s body fluids. It attracts victims with the light, then blinds them with a strong flash before swallowing them whole. The glow it produces may be seen on the surface from a depth of more than three miles (five kilometers). As a result, it has acquired the moniker “The Deep-Sea Star.” Lanturn competes with Lumineon for the capture of its victim, Starmie. Lanturn’s natural predators are Frillish and Sharpedo. Lanturn lives in the sea.
