Chandelure (Pokkén Tournament)




Chandelure is a Fire and Ghost-type Pokémon that evolves from Lampent after giving the Lampent a Dusk Stone. By waving the flames on its arms, it puts its foes into a hypnotic trance. It then absorbs their spirit, which it then burns, leaving the body behind.

Lampent is often seen in hospitals to absorb the souls of the deceased ones to burn their souls in its fire.

Litwick is known to pretend to be a guide for those lost to slowly absorb their vitality for itself with its flare.

  • Infiltrator: Allows Chandelure to pass through barriers to attack.
  • Warm Blanket: Restores HP when Chandelure is standing in magma.


Via level-up

  • Ember: Chandelure fires a few bursts of flames which have a chance to burn.
  • Astonish: Chandelure attacks the opponent while attempting to scare them. It has a chance to make them flinch.
  • Minimize: Chandelure shrinks itself, making it harder to hit via being a smaller target.
  • Smog: Chandelure releases filthy, noxious gas that damages the target and potentially poisons them.
  • Fire Spin: Chandelure spews a tornado of fire that surrounds and continuously damages the target while preventing them from retreating or escaping.
  • Confuse Ray: Chandelure emits an odd light that confuses the one it hits.
  • Night Shade: Chandelure uses its ghostly powers to dupe the target into witnessing a frightening mirage.
  • Will O' Wisp: Chandelure shoots a bluish-white flame that burns upon contact.
  • Flame Burst: Chandelure attacks with a burst of flame that does "splash damage" to anyone near.
  • Imprison: Chandelure manifests a psychic seal inscribed with the character 封 (the first kanji of 封 印, which translates to English as "seal") on the target's body, preventing them from using any techniques that Chandelure also has complete knowledge of.
  • Hex: Chandelure fires a hex that inflicts direct damage on opponents; however, against foes under the influence of malignant status conditions (severe burns, paralysis, body-freezing, forcible sleep), the damage is doubled.
  • Memento: Chandelure sacrifices itself to sharply lower the physical and special attack of the opponent. This is pretty much useless in a versus match.
  • Inferno: Chandelure engulfs the opponent in intense flames. It is guaranteed to burn.

  • Pain Split: Chandelure adds its HP to the target's HP, then equally shares the combined HP with the target.
  • Overheat: Chandelure attacks with a ferocious burst of flame however, subsequent uses will be much weaker, and overuse will lower Chandelure's overall combat effectiveness.

Via breeding

  • Acid: Chandelure sprays the opponent with a harsh, hide melting acid that lowers defense.
  • Acid Armor: Chandelure briefly liquefies itself to boost its defense.
  • Captivate: Chandelure uses its supernatural allure to charm other Pokémon of the opposite gender, significantly weakening the potency of their special attacks.
  • Clear Smog: Chandelure throws a clump of mud that does damage and returns all the effects of buffing and debuffing to normal.
  • Endure: Chandelure braces itself, which allows it to survive an attack that would otherwise defeat it.
  • Haze: Chandelure emits a haze, which resets all statistics, and has also been used as a smokescreen.
  • Heat Wave: Chandelure blows an extremely hot wave of air that can cause burns. It can hit multiple opponents.
  • Power Split: Chandelure pools the AP of it and the opponent, and divides it equally upon the two. This move homes onto the opponent.
