Kecleon (Japanese: カクレオン, Kakureon) is a merchant Pokémon in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. He's the younger brother of Kecleon (Big Brother), and one of the Pokémon often referred to as The Kecleon Brothers. He's also known for being the proprietor of Kecleon Wares.



Kecleon was the proprioter of Kecleon Wares in Pokémon Square. At one point, he was robbed by Latios. He was incensed when Kangaskhan said nobody could get past the items she was protecting, implying he was incompetent. While initially angry with Latios, he was quick to forgive, once he learned of Latios' reasons.

At some point in time, he seemingly packed up shop and moved to Treasure Town along with Pokémon Square inhabitants. In Nintendo 3DS Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, Persian states that Felicity Bank "used to be there", but doesn't know why it closed. Kecleon never addresses it in Explorers of Time, Darkness and Sky).

Physical Appearance

Kecleon is unique among his species because he has a rosy tint to his skin. While normal Kecleon is yellow and green, with a red stripe, he's green and purple (sometimes depicted as pink) with a red stripe. He's a bipedal reptilian creature with an extremely large head, proportionate to his body.


Kecleon's overall personality is upbeat and friendly. He welcomes buyers to his shop and will enthusiastically fawn over moves. He will explain that the reason his skin is "rosy" in color is because of his passion for moves, revealing that he wasn't always purple/pink.

As shown when he was robbed by Latios, he's quick to anger, but his calm demeanor usually prevails and he can be made to see reason in these situations.

" And moves... They are the ultimate power! Smash rocks! Fly! There are many kinds of moves, all of them dynamic, yet elegant! There are even moves of obscure rarity... Simply gorgeous they are! Now, we have these Moves! They can be learned using our Technical Machines, or TMs for short! You see? Isn't it exciting? Even dreamy? Why, it gets me so excited, my color has turned a rosy tint!

  • Kecleon wasn't always purple. When the player requests info in the Rescue Team titles and Explorers titles, he explains that his excitement for moves is what gave him a rosy tint.
    • In the main-series Pokémon titles, Kecleon are said to change their color based on mood, or at will, reverting back when startled. It's unclear why this particular Kecleon is seemingly never shown revert back to his original color.[4]
