Pokémon GO Chimecho is known as the “Wind Chime Pokémon”. Chimecho awards 1000 Stardust on catch. This psychic type Pokémon is also known to use 7 different echoing cries to communicate with others.
Chimecho has an unexpectedly high max CP of 2095. This may not be much, but considering how weak other Gen III Pokémon are, Chimecho’s cute CP should put a smile on your face.
Other that CP, Chimecho’s stats are not really impressive. With DEF (174) and STA (150) its defensive stats are below the average, and its ATK (175) is nothing to write home about.
This Pokemon loves Windy weather.
Chimecho in the Pokémon GO meta
Other than a surprising CP, Chimecho is just another Pokédex collection in the meta. Its stats are still substandard overall.
Chimecho does not have any further evolution, but has a pre evolved form Chingling, which is listed under the Fourth Generation.
This Pokémon might do well against fighting and other psychic type opponents, but it would take large damage from bug, ghost, and dark type moves.
