Pokémon GO Kecleon is a normal type Pokémon, Max CP 1924, also known as the “Color Swap Pokémon”.
Stat wise, Kecleon is an average, weakish addition to the Pokémon lineup: STA (120), DEF (212) and ATK (161). Well, at least it’s more powerful than a Raticate.
Kecleon can change the colors of its body at will, frequently using this ability to camouflage. However, Kecleon is unable to change the color of its signature stripe.
Kecleon in the Pokémon GO meta
No, it’s happening again, argh, aaa, argh… another… Pokédex filler… please… Niantic… we… need… more… stats… abilities… the Hub editor falls to the ground, crying at the sight of yet another Gen 3 Pokédex filler… must not… cry… a… lot…
Kecleon is yet another Pokédex collectable— its stats are downright average and its Combat Power doesn’t event hit the 2k mark.
There are no known further evolution for Kecleon.
Pokémon GO Kecleon Moves
Kecleon’s best move set: Lick/Ice Beam
Here are the following moves that Kecleon can learn:
- Lick ghost (quick move)
- Sucker Punch dark (quick move)
- Thunder electric (charge move, 1 bar)
- Foul Play dark (charge move, 2 bars)
- Flamethrower fire (charge move, 2 bars)
- Ice Beam ice (charge move, 2 bars)
- Aerial Ace (charge move, 3 bars)
- Shadow Sneak ghost (charge move, 3 bars)
Kecleon has quite the move selection. Although having some powerful moves, none of them deal STAB, making Kecleon an inefficient choice. Let’s face it, there are just better Pokémon to choose from when dealing STAB damage anyways.

A shiny Kecleon is almost identical to that of its normal counterpart, with the exception of its zigzag stripe being blue.
