Kalos Pokémon have started appearing in Pokémon Go, letting players get their hands on Generation VI Pokémon in the wild. As part of the Kalos Celebration event, players in France were able to catch Klefki, but players have discovered that the Pokémon is also available beyond French borders.
Reddit users on r/TheSilphRoad, a go-to resource for Pokémon Go fans, have come together to analyse Niantic’s data and discovered that Klefki can be captured along the South Coast of England, amongst other places.
This is due to the way that Pokémon Go breaks up regions of the world into large square blocks, which means that overlap between regions is possible. The block that covers France also extends a fair way into the North Sea, and as such covers the coast of England

The Silph Road users have also discovered that Klefki is also available in Germany, Italy and Spain, as well as other countries, with users posting confirmation when they have caught Klefki in various countries.
