How to Evolve?

Chinchou is the unevolved form of the Pokemon. Natu evolves into Lanturn, starting at level 27. This is his first evolution form. The evolution can be done through the use of rare candies. In the Pokemon Go, 50 Chinchou candies are required for the evolution process. At level 56, Lanturn can be transformed into Mega Lanturn through the use of mega gem item.

How Much Useful is My Chinchou?

Chinchou can zap its enemies by shooting positive and negative electricity. It has a subpar special attack. It can lure its enemies through the use of its two antennas. They can also flash electric lights for exchanging signals with others. It also discharges electricity when danger is sensed by them. While you need to be cautious when Chinchou is around Grass or Ground-type Pokemon as it has a weakness against it.
