At the present in Pokémon GO, the mainstream of the core game generations has been executed into the game with hundreds of Pokémon to encounter and catch. Even with Pokémon from the Galar region being applied, though, there’s still Pokémon absent from elder generations. The third generation precisely is absent only one Pokémon and it’s not even a legendary or mythical Pokémon.
Kecleon is a clean Normal-type Pokémon from the Hoenn region that has so far to look as if in Pokémon GO. While not being a particularly widespread Pokémon related to many others, many players have been waiting for its announcement so that all of the third generations could appropriately be caught in-game.
Niantic’s confirmation on Kecleon in Pokémon GO
While Niantic has been noiseless about Kecleon for a long time, a fresh interview with Gfinity Esports has exposed that the Pokémon has not been elapsed. Not only is the Pokémon still having work done on it, but Kecleon is also confirmed to be receiving a distinct release when it is finally ready for Pokémon GO.
Those unaware of Kecleon may be disordered on what would cause so much work to go into a non-legendary pure Normal-type Pokémon. It truly has to do with Kecleon’s capability from the leading games, known as Color Alteration.
Pokémon GO presently doesn’t use capabilities like the games from the core series, but Kecleon’s whole presence is centered around its capability. This is due to Pokémon’s third generation being the group to present abilities as a mechanic in-game, causing manifold Pokémon from the Hoenn region to have distinct mechanics that stalk from their capability. An immense instance of this is Castform’s form variations based on the climate. While this has been decoded as players just existence able to detention Castform’s dissimilar procedures as discrete Pokémon liable on the real world’s weather, this cannot be done for Kecleon.
Color Change is a superior aptitude special to Kecleon that changes its real type of the last move that triumphs it. With Pokémon in Pokémon GO only significant two moves usually, this can perceptibly cause some exciting situations if a player uses Kecleon in a battle. Additional issues may ascend if Kecleon is a raid boss, considering how many Pokémon generally attack a raid manager at on one occasion with numerous dissimilar moves.
It is unidentified how Niantic will be managing Kecleon and how its occupations, but it appears vibrant that it will be retentive its Color Change capability in some way owed to how long it’s occupied to be released. Until an official declaration, though, it’s unidentified when the player will be able to clasp this Pokémon.
