Chandelure (シャンデラ) is the 115th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Ghost/Fire Type, and it is known as the Luring Pokémon.

Chandleure can have one of two Abilities: Flash Fire, which activates when it gets hit by a Fire-Type move, nullifying the move and its effects while increasing the power of its own Fire-Type attacks by 50%, or Flame Body, which has a 30% chance of Burning an opponent that uses a physical contact move against it. A third Ability is available to Chandelure that come from the Dream World, the Shadow Tag Ability. This Ability prevents its opponents from switching out or running away, unless the opposing Pokémon uses Baton Pass to switch.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Chandelure is a part of the Underused (UU) tier of competitive battling. With a high 145 base Special Attack, Chandelure is an ideal special attacking wallbreaker that can punch holes through unprepared teams. It has numerous immunities to Normal, Fighting, and Fire attacks, with the latter being through its ability Flash Fire. Chandelure can act as a Choice Scarf revenge killer and late-game cleaner or a Choice Specs wallbreaker that can destroy the tier with its STABs Fire Blast and Shadow Ball. Lastly, Chandelure can choose to use a Substitute + Calm Mind set that can take advantage of the presence of certain defensive Pokémon that could otherwise give it trouble, such as Blissey and Florges. However, Chandelure suffers from having relatively underwhelming bulk and Speed stats. Even with a Choice Scarf, Chandelure can be outsped by fast threats like Mega Aerodactyl, Mega Beedrill, and Mega Sceptile. Its typing leaves it open to being Pursuit trapped as well.
