Kalos is the latest Pokémon region to have its Pokémon appear in Pokémon GO. As of Tuesday, all the Pokémon that first appeared in Kalos can now be found in the wild. Chespin arrived in that deluge of new Pokémon to capture, and has been singled out to appear more frequently in the wild for the first week of December. It will also hatch from 5 kilometer eggs alongside Fennekin and Froakie. This promotion ends Dec. 8 at 10 p.m. local time.

As a Grass-Type Pokémon, Chespin is vulnerable to Bug-, Fire-, Flying-, Ice- and Poison-Type attacks. It is well suited to resist Electric-, Grass-, Ground-, and Water-Type attacks.

Chespin evolves first into Quilladin and ultimately into Chesnaught. Once it reaches its final evolution, it becomes Grass- and Fighting-Type.
