Kecleon in Pokémon GO: Full Guide

Posted in

Kecleon has finally made its Pokémon GO debut, following the wrap up of Chespin Community Day: January 2023 in your area. Kecleon is a rare spawn that is available as a PokéStop encounter, meaning you will have to find a specific PokéStop, spin it and then it will appear. 

Kecleon PokéStops do not have a visual indicator on the overworld map, but clicking on the PokéStop will show an semi-invisible Kecleon hanging around the PokéStop image. Here’s how to find and get Kecleon in Pokémon GO.

Kecleon has arrived as a special encounter at certain Pokéstops following Chespin Community Day, appearing in mostly invisible form blocking you from spinning said PokéStops.

Tapping the ‘invisible’ Kecleon multiple times will reveal Kecleon, and it will jump off the PokéStop, and trigger a Kecleon spawn on the overworld map. You’ll be prevented from spinning the PokéStop until Kecleon jumps off the stop.

Kecleon can then be encountered as a normal Pokémon spawn. Click on the spawn on the overworld map to start the encounter. There are no prerequisites to encountering Kecleon aside from Chespin Community Day being over in your region.

Kecleon is available for everyone at the encountered PokéStop – spawns are shared with all Trainers, but everyone has to spin the PokéStop on their own. It’s quite a rare spawn, so expect to find it every 15 – 20 PokéStops.

A note on Rocket Radar: Turn off your Rocket Radar (Regular and Super) when searching for Kecleon. Rocket Leader and Giovanni encounters override Kecleon, and will hide a potential spawn.
