Appearances

Anime

The Kecleon Brothers

In the Johto League, a trainer named Harrison had a Kecleon which was defeated by Ash Ketchum's Pikachu. It also in the Special Red\Blue Rescue team Go Getters as the Kecleon Brothers. They have the same role as they do in the video game; shopkeepers. It also appears in the short Pikachu's Pikaboo.

Trivia

  • Two Kecleon were seen in one of the anime episodes, and were named "Redie" and "Greenie". They were seen in the Johto region and this marked the first appearance of a Generation III Pokémon in the anime.
  • Due to Kecleon's ability, Color Change, if it knows the move Synchronoise, if the opponent uses a move that would receive STAB Kecleon would change to that type and then deal damage to the opponent using the previously mentioned move.
  • Kecleon appears in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond, in which he keeps track of the players' records and awards.
  • Kecleon is the hardest Pokémon to obtain in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team & Blue Rescue Team. With a recruit rate of -33.9, the player must be at least Level 90 and must be holding the Friend Bow which increases recruit chances. Even after doing all this, Kecleon still has a recruit rate of 0.1. In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time, Darkness, and Sky, the player must instead be at least Level 99 and must be holding the Golden Mask. The Amber Tear also does not work on recuiting Kecleon.
    • However, Kecleon has a highly erratic growth rate in these games. It is the weakest Pokémon to use in the Zero Isle dungeons, having all of its stats tied at 1 at Level 1 and requiring 15,020 experience points to reach Level 2. On the other hand, at Level 50 and above, all of its stats, bar HP, are tied at 255. This makes it nearly impossible to deal more than minimal damage to a high-levelled Kecleon, unless the player lowers its defenses or uses attacks that deal direct damage.

Etymology

Kecleon is a combination of the Japanese word "Kakureru" which means to hide and "chameleon".

Origin

Kecleon is based on a chameleon. The Color Change ability is based on chameleons' ability to change their color for camouflage; scientists believe the real motivation for this behavior is to reflect mood.
