Lanturn is a large, blue fish-like Pokémon with a pair of small blue fins. It has a yellow "mask" over its red eyes. The tip of the bottom of its tail is also colored yellow. Lanturn's yellow orbs come from a modification of its dorsal fin. These orbs contain a colony of bacteria that create a chemical reaction, which generates electricity in a similar fashion to that of a battery. Lanturn uses the bright part of its body to lure fish prey. It then blinds the prey with an intense burst of light, and swallows the immobilized prey in a single gulp. Lanturn inhabits the ocean at depths of over three miles.
- Lanturn has the highest HP base stat of all Electric-type Pokémon.
- Lanturn shares the same species name with Ampharos. They are both known as the Light Pokémon.
- In Pokémon Emerald, Cooltrainer Dianne in Victory Road has a Lanturn that knows Earthquake, even though it cannot legitimately have the move in any generation.
