Kecleon first appeared in The Kecleon Caper. A pair of them tried to foil Team Rocket's attempt to steal their owners' stuff. This was the first episode in the anime to feature a Generation III Pokémon.

A Kecleon was one of the Pokémon that played Hide 'n' Seek with Pikachu and co. in Pikachu's PikaBoo. However, said Kecleon missed out on the excitement when a lawn-mower was on the loose.

Harrison used a Kecleon against Ash's Pikachu in the Silver Conference in Playing with Fire and Johto Photo Finish.

A Kecleon appeared in a Pokémon Chronicles episode that took place in Big Town. It was stealing food to take to an Azumarill's sick neice.

Two Kecleon owned a shop in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Team Go-Getters out of the Gate!. Unfortunately, Team Meanies stole everything they had.

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire: Kecleon has the first Bonus Field on the Ruby Field. It will turn invisible, though a Template:I can be knocked out of the tree to make it visible for a short time. Kecleon must be knocked over and then hit with the ball ten times in two minutes to win the round.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Two Kecleon run the shop at Pokémon Square. Other Kecleon will randomly have shops within dungeons. They are normally courteous but shoplifting will result in multiple wild Kecleon appearing to attack the player. While these Kecleon are at an extremely high level and hard to recruit, this is the only way to obtain Kecleon in the game.
