Firstly, as at all times, I extremely advocate utilizing Buddy Mode to {photograph} your Kecleon. Buddy Mode gives extra animations than the usual AR mode, and with Kecleon the additional animation is admittedly dynamic.

In common AR mode you solely get entry to the beneath animation, the everyday ‘roar’ that each one Pokémon have. In Buddy Mode this animation can also be accessible by way of a double faucet.

In Buddy Mode, with a single faucet, you get entry to a very improbable animation! On this animation Kecleon throws their head and arms backwards, then launches an assault with their tongue, like an actual lizard would possibly.

Kecleon can seem in each their totally seen, and clear types in AR mode!

Clear Kecleon

Of their clear mode solely their crimson stomach band is totally seen, and the remainder of their physique is translucent. When photographed you’ll be able to see by means of them, so the background is seen by means of their physique.

It is very important be aware nevertheless, that when you work together with Kecleon in anyway, they are going to instantly change to their regular full color kind. In the event you choose to reposition Kecleon by placing them again of their ball, after which respawning them, with out exiting AR mode, they are going to respawn totally seen. In order for you them to be invisible, you can not work together with them, and you may solely make them spawn in of their camouflage the primary time you spawn them in. In the event you totally exit AR mode after which return in, they are going to return to their invisible kind. It may be slightly glitchy!

Utilizing Buddy Mode, the invisible Kecleon will flip to take a look at you (beneath), or in normal AR mode it is going to look forwards (above). I used the Bokehmon Method right here to pressure the background to be out of focus to actually spotlight Kecleon, which was positively difficult with a virtually invisible Pokémon! The beneath picture was taken with out the Bokehmon method, and I discover it so much much less fascinating personally. Each have been simply fast snaps to assist illustrate the other ways during which Kecleon can seem in AR mode.


Kecleon is such a enjoyable Pokémon to {photograph}, and with the ability to {photograph} them each seen, and clear is admittedly nice. Don’t neglect to make use of the #GOHubAR hashtag so we see your wonderful photographs on social media!
