Pokemon of the Week #17: Litwick

Pokemon of the Week #17: Litwick

Zackary Schejbal, Staff Reporter/Pokemon Expert

Welcome back fellow Pokemon trainers! This is Pokemon of the Week!

As you may know by now, Pokemon of the Week’s goal is to inform you on Pokemon you may encounter on your travels. This week is Litwick, the candle Pokemon.

The national Pokedex number of Litwick is #607. As a ghost and fire type Pokemon, it is a cute little sucker to take on your travels.

Pokedex entries state that “Litwick shines a light that absorbs the life energy of people and Pokemon, which becomes the fuel that it burns”. This Pokemon’s origin started in the Unova region.

This Pokemon does evolve at level 41 to Lampent then using a dusk stone evolves into Chandelure. It is also got the ability flame body, which if a Pokemon touches the holder of the ability, it causes a burn status which hurts until the Pokemon faints.

In my opinion, it is a pretty cute Pokemon. If you want to go against the Elite Four, make sure you evolve the cute thing to Chandelure. If you don’t decide to evolve it, it would be better off as a Beauty Contest Pokemon than a battler.

That’s all we have time for this week. Stay tuned to next week’s edition!
