===Physiology===
+
Chinchou is a small, fish-like Pokémon with a round, blue body. It has large yellow eyes with pupils shaped like plus signs, a pair of semi-transparent, light blue {{wp|fish fin|pectoral fins}}, and stubby feet. Positioned on its rear where its tail would be are a pair of antennae that curve up and over its head. The antennae developed from fins and have yellow, teardrop-shaped orbs at the tips.
Chinchou is a small, round, blue fish-like Pokémon with a pair of tiny white fins and two small blue feet. It has two antennae that are positioned on its rear like two tails. There is a yellow teardrop-shaped orb at the end of each. Chinchou's eyes have unique pupils that are shaped like plus signs.
 
====Gender differences====
 
None.
 
   
====Special abilities====
+
Prey is lured toward Chinchou by the soft glow from the orbs on its antennae. It also flashes its light to communicate with others of its kind and claim territory. Inside the antennae are electricity-generating cells that create so much electrical power that they even make Chinchou tingle slightly. By discharging positive and negative electricity, it can both defend itself and stun its prey. Chinchou lives on dark {{DL|List of Pokémon by habitat|Sea Pokémon|ocean floors}}, rarely ever coming up to the surface. However, it has demonstrated the ability to walk on land in [[EP212|the anime]].
Chinchou charges up its electric attacks by absorbing energy through its two antennae.
 
   
Chinchou and its [[evolution|evolved]] form {{p|Lanturn}} are the only {{type|Water}}s to learn an {{type|Electric}} move by leveling up. It's also shown to have the ability to walk on land in the {{pkmn|anime}}.

Chinchou (Japanese: チョンチー Chonchie) is a dual-type Water/Electric Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Lanturn starting at level 27.

Biology

Chinchou is a small, fish-like Pokémon with a round, blue body. It has large yellow eyes with pupils shaped like plus signs, a pair of semi-transparent, light blue pectoral fins, and stubby feet. Positioned on its rear where its tail would be are a pair of antennae that curve up and over its head. The antennae developed from fins and have yellow, teardrop-shaped orbs at the tips.

Prey is lured toward Chinchou by the soft glow from the orbs on its antennae. It also flashes its light to communicate with others of its kind and claim territory. Inside the antennae are electricity-generating cells that create so much electrical power that they even make Chinchou tingle slightly. By discharging positive and negative electricity, it can both defend itself and stun its prey. Chinchou lives on dark ocean floors, rarely ever coming up to the surface. However, it has demonstrated the ability to walk on land in the anime.

Trivia

  • Although Chinchou is shown to have the ability to walk on land in the anime, in the games, it can only be caught in water and it lacks a footprint.
  • The vowel sounds in Chinchou's English name are reverse of the vowels in its Japanese name.

Name origin

Chinchou is a play on 提灯 chōchin (lantern).

Chonchie is a corruption of 提灯 chōchin (lantern). Also, チョウチンアンコウ chōchin-ankō is the name of the footballfish, a deep-sea fish similar to Chinchou's evolution, Lanturn. Notably, 調和 chōwa is Japanese for harmony, describing the balance of Chinchou's water and electric types.
