generally you shouldn't be stealing from kecleon unless you're prepared to actually steal
from kecleon (i.e. bring a pure seed etc)
and escape orbs are actually pretty decent if you don't want to burn all your reviver seeds (in instances such as having a ridiculously buffed drifloon chasing you down etc) or you're going to die anyway. i always bring along a couple with me for worst-case scenarios.
