Pokémon Nicknames: Kecleon
Kecleon (in Japanese: カクレオン “Kakureon”) is a chameleon. It is a NORMAL type Pokémon, but it may have one of two interesting abilities. The “Color Change” ability makes it change its type to the last damaging move that hit it. Also, the “Protean” ability changes Kecleon’s type according to the move that it is about to use, so that it becomes a (pure) Pokémon of that type.
Kecleon does not evolve.
I named a male Kecleon “Zelig” after the Woody Allen “mockumentary” film of the same name.
The film was about a man who was able to change himself physically to suit whichever social group he found himself within. Mr. Zelig was always able to conform to any group, – thus he was a “human chameleon”. Here is a clip:
The movie was made back when the great comedic director was actually interested in making unique and amusing films … but I digress…
I named another Kecleon “Roy G. Biv” after the color spectrum: Red-Orange-Yellow-Green-Indigo-Violet. Please groove to the “They Might Be Giants” song of the same name here:
I have named female Kecleon “Camry” after the Toyota automobile. “Cami” might be cute … I mean the name not the the type of women’s clothing (aka camisole) . You …
I welcome your suggestions and comments!
