Pokemon Go players are feeling like they’ve been trolled after Niantic teased a “specific unknown Pokemon” for the Bug Out event – and it wasn’t Kecleon.
As the Summer of Go draws to a close, Niantic is giving players a few more opportunities for hard-to-get mons, while also paving the way for all-new encounters like Mega Scizor Raids and Vikavolt.
A bug-centric celebration is imminent in Pokemon Go, and it’s a reminder to some players that we still haven’t gotten Kecleon after years of people wanting him in the game.
Granted, while Kecleon isn’t a bug guy, Niantic’s recent public post fooled some people for a minute that it was finally coming to PoGo – but that’s not the case.
Kecleon in Pokemon Go?
On August 8th, Niantic had a bit of fun reminding trainers of the Bug Out prizes and what creatures they would soon be encountering around the world.
“Pansage and a certain unknown Pokemon will appear in the wild and in raids worldwide during Ultra Unlock: Bug Out!” They said.
That little thing about the “unknown Pokemon” immediately cast trainers on the loop, thinking it should usher in the long-awaited entry of the color-changing Pokemon into the AR title.
Unfortunately, a closer look at the post immediately reveals what the developers were even talking about when a brand new “Unown” Pokémon variant “T” is coming to PoGo.
