Kecleon in Pokemon Go

Kecleon is one of the rarest spawns in Pokemon Go, so here’s everything you need to know on how to catch it and its shiny availability.

Pokemon Go boasts species from all nine generations, but some of them are easier to get than others. The Color Swap Pokemon, Kecleon, can hide to remain undetected, and this makes it a very elusive creature in Pokemon Go.

So, here’s everything you need to catch Kecleon in Pokemon Go and its shiny availability in the mobile game.

How to find Kecleon in Pokemon Go

In Pokemon Go, Kecleon only appears on random PokeStops you try to spin. This means there is no guaranteed way to find Kecleon, and you’ll have to spin as many PokeStops as you can to get one. Kecleon has no evolutions nor it evolves from another Pokemon.

If you find a Kecleon hiding in a PokeStop, you’ll get this message when trying to spin it: “There is an invisible object preventing you from collecting items at this stop.” After you tap the PokeStop a couple of times, Kecleon will reveal itself and jump, and you’ll be able to go back to the overworld to catch it in the wild.

Since Kecleon is an extremely rare spawn in the game, we recommend waiting for special events that boost its spawns. Currently, there’s no scheduled event that will feature Kecleon, but we’ll make sure to update this guide when it happens.

Can Kecleon be shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, shiny Kecleon is available in Pokemon Go since it debuted during the Go Tour Hoenn event. However, since Kecleon is already elusive, shiny Kecleon is one of the rarest shinies in the game, so keep that in mind.

And there you have it! That’s everything you need to find and catch Kecleon. For more Pokemon Go content, make sure to check more guides below:
