How to Get Kleavor in Pokemon Go: Pokémon Go, the augmented reality (AR) game developed and published by Niantic in collaboration with Nintendo, has been a global phenomenon since its release in 2016. The game is known for its extensive roster of Pokémon, which has been expanding with the introduction of new creatures from various regions. One such recent addition is Kleavor, a Bug/Rock-type Pokémon from the Hisui region.


Kleavor is a unique Pokémon that made its first appearance in the Pokémon franchise in the game Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Known as the Axe Pokémon, Kleavor is a Bug/Rock-type Pokémon that is recognized for its large, axe-like arms, which it uses to deliver powerful attacks.

Kleavor’s Arrival in Pokémon Go

Kleavor was introduced to Pokémon Go during a special event known as Kleavor Raid Day. This event, which typically lasts for three hours, features Kleavor in three-star Raid Battles. During this period, players have the opportunity to challenge Kleavor in Raids and, upon defeating it, get a chance to catch this unique Pokémon.

Catching Kleavor

The process of catching Kleavor in Pokémon Go is similar to catching any other Raid Boss in the game. Once players successfully defeat Kleavor in a Raid Battle, they are given a certain number of Premier Balls based on various factors like the amount of damage dealt, whether their team controls the Gym, and their contribution to the battle. Players can then use these Premier Balls to catch Kleavor.

Evolution of Scyther into Kleavor

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Scyther, a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon, can evolve into Kleavor when exposed to an item known as the Black Augurite. However, as of now, this evolution method has not been implemented in Pokémon Go. Therefore, currently, the only way to obtain Kleavor in Pokémon Go is by participating in the Kleavor Raid Day event.

Future Possibilities

While it’s currently not possible to evolve Scyther into Kleavor in Pokémon Go, the game is known for introducing new evolution methods and items from the mainline Pokémon games. Therefore, it’s possible that the Black Augurite or a similar item could be introduced in the future, allowing Scyther to evolve into Kleavor.


Kleavor, with its unique typing and powerful attacks, can be a valuable addition to your Pokémon Go team. While it’s currently only available through special events, keep an eye on announcements from Niantic for future opportunities to catch this formidable Pokémon. Happy hunting, trainers!
