Pokemon GO trainers are wondering where they can find Klefki in-game.

Klefki is a peculiar steel and fairy-type. A Kalos-region native, this Pokemon has the bizarre habit of taking keys and adding them to its body—which, fittingly enough, is shaped like a ring with a lock and key teeth at the top. It is both a real-world regional Pokemon and a general rare spawn, making adding its entry to the in-game PokeDex quite the feat.

Here's how to catch Klefki.

Klefki in Pokemon GO

Klefki is available in Pokemon GO, having been originally added to the game in early December 2020. However, some trainers may have a harder time catching it than others. At the time of writing, this Pokemon is exclusively available in Europe—specifically France, but potentially as far as southern England.

It has the following stats:

  • Maximum CP: 2,204
  • Attack: 160
  • Defense: 179
  • Stamina: 149

Its best moveset contains the charged move "Play Rough" and either "Tackle" or "Astonish" as a quick move.

As a steel and fairy-type, it is vulnerable to fire and ground-types. Its strength lies against poison, ice, dark, psychic, grass, normal, rock, flying, fairy, bug, and dragon-types.

Also known as the "Key Ring" Pokemon, Klefki is best known for its habit of collecting keys to add to its body. When attacked, it will "threaten any attackers by fiercely jingling their keys at them." Its PokeDex number is 707 and it has no evolutions.
