Default PMD Sky question

so. like. as of late I've started trying to recruit Kecleon. if I'm not mistaken, the highest recruit chance Kecleon can get is .5%, or one in 200. except I'm fairly sure I've faced over 200 Kecleon since I've started trying to recruit and, obviously, no success. so what I'm wondering is did I miss a criterion somewhere.

what I am using is a level 100 Mew with the Fast Friend IQ skill and a Golden Mask. Bulbapedia shows that this should be all I need but since I'm failing to recruit Kecleon I'm wondering if there's something else I need to do :VVV or if I should just keep trying.

In the original, if you were lv. 100 and had a friend bow, Kecleon had a 1/1000 rate.

Or maybe you're just unlucky.

yeah... there's no way I would have ever gone for Kecleon in the originals. But I have everything except Kecleon in Sky so now I'm attempting to get it...

recent track record suggests this is the case.

either that or I /am/ missing something.

your chances of recruiting a kecleon with those in 200 tries are .633042178273833. make sure you actually have the mask equipped and go slaughter kecleons.

Are you holding the golden mask, or is it just in your inventory?

given that I need to know where Kecleons /are/ I start out with the X-Ray Specs equipped, but every time I see a Kecleon approaching I make sure to switch to the Golden Mask while I kill it and then back to the X-Ray Specs.

the point being, there is a /still/ very good chance that you'll fail in huge numbers of tries.
