Chimecho (Japanese: チリーン Chirean) is a Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Chingling when leveled up with high friendship during the night.

Biology

Chimecho is a small, round Pokémon with a mainly bluish white body shaped like a fūrin wind chime. It has beady, yellow eyes and three stubby limbs. Its body has a horizontal amaranth-colored pattern. Underneath its body extends a long, tag-like tail that has amaranth patterning at the bottom. A yellow, globular growth, referred to as a suction cup or a sucker, is connected to the top of its body.

Chimecho can create ultrasonic sound waves and other noises. It uses seven different echoing cries to communicate with others. It is nocturnal and usually lives in grasslands and woods, but some are found in mountainous regions. It eats Berries that it plucks with its tail.

Major appearances

James's Chimecho

James has a Chimecho that was obtained in Who's Flying Now? at the Fortree City Feather Carnival. It said its name in the Team Rocket motto right after Jessie's Wobbuffet, and James cherished it so much that he did not allow it to battle. In Sweet Baby James, James left his Chimecho with his Nanny and Pop-Pop to recover from illness at his old vacation home in Saffron City.
