Custom point element.

In ChartistJS you can replace default element with smth different. There is a pretty demo (USING EVENTS TO REPLACE GRAPHICS). And if you want the tooltip to work fine with a new element, you need to include two more properties:

'ct:value': data.value.y,
'ct:meta': data.meta,

So the final code could look like this. Here is a live demo

chart.on('draw', function(data) {
  // If the draw event was triggered from drawing a point on the line chart
  if(data.type === 'point') {
    // We are creating a new path SVG element that draws a triangle around the point coordinates

    var circle = new Chartist.Svg('circle', {
      cx: [data.x],
      cy: [data.y],
      r: [5],
      'ct:value': data.value.y,
      'ct:meta': data.meta,
      class: 'my-cool-point',
    }, 'ct-area');

    // With data.element we get the Chartist SVG wrapper and we can replace the original point drawn by Chartist with our newly created triangle
    data.element.replace(circle);
  }
});
plugins: [
      Chartist.plugins.tooltip({
        appendToBody: true,
        pointClass: 'my-cool-point'
      })

    ]
