Your source for Pokémon fan works, Trainer Cards, and news.

Flash Challenges, for those of you who have forgotten what those entail (or were not around for the last ones to know what those entail in the first place) are freeform artistic prompts centered around a particular theme, meant to inspire creative works for whomever wishes to take them on.

This morning, an apparent mistake in updating the icons for Kecleon (a Pokemon that isn't currently available in Pokemon Go) was picked up by Pokemon Go Watcher @Chrales with what happened to not be icons for Kecleon at all.

The Pokedex number associated with these icons isn't even Kecleon's (#352), rather the number comes through at #891. That indicates that, assuming Generation 8 follows the trend of a somewhat relatively small increase in Pokemon numbers, this new fellow is actually quite towards the end of the Pokedex, rather than the beginning.
