Abilities

The Black Polo comes with Recon as the primary ability, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Clothing, prevents the wearer from also having Cold-Blooded, Haunt, or Ninja Squid. As a 1-star item, the Black Polo comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail or 30,000 cash for each slot. Since it is made by the Zekko brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Saver and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slot.

Abilities

The Black Polo comes with Ninja Squid as the primary ability when purchased from shop or ordered from Murch, which, being exclusive to the main slot of Clothing, prevents the wearer from also having Ability Doubler, Haunt, Respawn Punisher, or Thermal Ink. When purchased from SplatNet 2, it can have any other primary ability normally available to Clothing (with the exception of Ability Doubler). As a 1-star item, the Black Polo comes with one additional slot for secondary abilities, which may be increased to a maximum of three slots with a Super Sea Snail for each slot. Since it is made by the Zekko brand, it has a higher chance of rolling Special Saver and a lower chance of rolling Special Charge Up to fill its secondary ability slot.

Trivia

  • The Black Polo is the cheapest piece of gear with Recon in Splatoon. It is tied with the Herbivore Tee for cheapest purchasable gear with Ninja Squid in Splatoon 2.
  • The Black Polo had been in the game's data files since its original release and had been shown in several pre-release screenshots, but was not made available until Version 2.3.0.
