No I do not have a Kecleon just because I am lacking both the time and patience to recruit one .

I too have thought that Kecleon might be an exception and that this may be a unique case in which you need to have Lucario Rank to recruit. If this was the case though it would be well documented on any reputable website; it is not. I would not trust anything from a geocities site or anything of that calibre... (thinks back to the hundreds of ways you could catch Mew in RBY ).

I think the confusion stems from people thinking that rank affects recruit rank.

It is almost certainly all about odds. One in a thousand chance is not very good at all. Kecleon is tied for the hardest pokemon to recruit in this game (the other three are Swampert, Feraligatr, and Blastoise who all share the -33.9% recruit rate).

.1% chance may seem daunting... but it is a heck of a lot better than running into a shiny pokemon in the other games (0.000122% chance). Just keep at it !

Another way to get it would be through Jirachi. If you have recruited every single pokemon except Kecleon and you're in Lucario rank, then complete Wish Cave and do not recruit Jirachi when he asks then choose "something good" for your wish; you should get Kecleon the next morning.

I believe the actual capacity is 9. But anyways 2 Kecleon is really 1 too many as there isn't really any reason to get more than one... except for bragging rights I suppose.

But seriously, I am not sure why Kecleon is so popular. Its stats are not anything stellar, it does not really have a strong movepool (best move that it can learn is Fury Swipes) and the punch behind that is taken away after it changes types. Since STAB is more important than Type Advantage in PMD, Color Change sort of ruins Kecleon's offensive capabilities thereby almost limiting it to a Defensive or Utility pokemon but Kecleon does not really have much going for it in those departments either.

That being said, someday I will go after Kecleon just for something to do and for completeness... but you probably won't ever find that pokemon on any of my serious rescue teams.
