Best Moveset for Chinchou and Lanturn in Pokémon Go

The Angler and the Light Pokémon.

With Chinchou being featured during a Spotlight Hour, we can expect to see them showing up more often in battles. So the question is, how do we put ours on the list of the best ones? The answer is simple: by picking the right moves! This guide lists the best attacks to give to your Chinchou and Lanturn to ensure they're in top form.

Since this entire evolution line uses Water and Electric types, you want to focus on these attacks. For the most part, these Pokémon will all use the same types of attacks. However, the list of best attacks can change as Pokémon evolve or in different weather conditions.


  • Chinchou and Lanturn are boosted by Rainy weather.
