Clefairy (Japanese: ピッピ Pippi) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Cleffa when leveled up with high friendship and evolves into Clefable when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Clefairy appears to be a larger and more detailed version of its pre-evolution. Its stocky arms have now gained three digits on each of its hands, two of which appear to have grown nails. Each of its feet has gained a single clawed toe and its star-shaped body has now become more rounded, giving it a more chubby appearance. Its mouth has gained an elongated left canine and it has gained a wrinkle on either side of its eyes similar to crow's feet. The curl on its forehead and tail is now larger, and its ears are now longer, slightly less rounded, and primarily pink with brown tips and black undersides. It has gained small wings on its back, which are incapable of flight. Some more basic aspects have been left the same, as they are both tailed bipeds.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Clefairy floating

The most well known ability that a Clefairy has is the ability to use Metronome, a move that involves wiggling its fingers back and forth in order to execute any move at random. Even without Metronome, Clefairy is capable of learning a vast amount of elemental attacks. They can also store moonlight in their wings, allowing them to float in midair. It is one of three Pokémon able to learn Meteor Mash.

Prior to Generation V, Clefairy and its evolution family were the only Pokémon that could possess the Magic Guard ability, which prevents all forms of indirect damage.

Behavior

Clefairy are very shy and timid creatures. As such, they rarely show themselves to humans. They are among the most intelligent of all Pokémon, being capable of forming society and religion. They are also capable of constructing various means of transport. Clefairy also seem to have gained a reputation as kleptomaniacs, since there have been various reports of Clefairy being seen stealing random junk.

Habitat

Clefairy are extraterrestrial Pokémon, and as such are elusive Pokémon in the wild. The best place to find them is Mt. Moon, especially at a night during a full moon. Wherever they live, they are likely to be in an area where the moon is clear and visible at night. They can also be found on Mt. Coronet in Sinnoh, and around Kyurem's crater in the Giant Chasm in Unova.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Clefairy's diet is unknown, although the presence of a canine tooth may indicate that it is an omnivore.

In A Goldenrod Opportunity, a Clefairy was used by Whitney to send Team Rocket flying and in the Gym Battle against Ash. The Fairy Pokémon was defeated by his Cyndaquil.

Several Clefairy also appeared in A Real Cleffa-Hanger, when Ash and his friends visited Mt. Moon again.

Minor appearances

Multiple Clefairy also appeared in The Power of One.

A Clefairy appeared in Team Rocket's fantasy in Imitation Confrontation.

This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Red's Clefairy

There are two chapters in the The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga which focus on Clefairy.

In the third chapter of the manga, Clefairy Tale, Ash discovers a colony of Clefairy with Bill and Professor Oak. The three humans assist with and witness an evolution ceremony. This chapter appears to be loosely based on the anime episode Clefairy and the Moon Stone.

The second chapter to feature Clefairy is Clefairy in Space, the tenth chapter of the manga. In this chapter, a herd of wild Clefairy are causing trouble in Apple City, where rumors are circulating that Clefairy come from outer space. This chapter was based on the anime episode Clefairy Tales. In this chapter, it is learned that Clefairy have a secretion from the back of their throat that can harden into a crystal-like form.

In Magical Pokémon Journey and Pokémon Chamo-Chamo ☆ Pretty ♪

Main article: Clefairy (MPJ)

One of Hazel's main traveling companions in the Magical Pokémon Journey manga is a timid, shy Clefairy. Clefairy tends to be very cowardly, but when he actually does battle, he can use his powerful Metronome attack.

Clefairy also returns as a main character in Pokémon Chamo-Chamo ☆ Pretty ♪.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Green had a Clefairy that later evolved into Clefable when Red used his Moon Stone on it. Although it was used only once for distraction against Sabrina prior to evolving, its increased power allowed it to stall Zapmolcuno for a short period of time with its Metronome. Daisy Oak also has a Clefairy used in Contests when she was younger.

Rad Rickshaw owns two Clefairy nicknamed Pippirin and Pippiran as seen in VS. Clefairy.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Main article: Red's Clefairy

Clefairy is one of the main characters in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga and is Red's starter Pokémon. Clefairy is often very rude and stupid, gaining him the nickname "Blockhead Clefairy". He is the source of much slapstick humor in the manga.

Blaine has multiple Clefairy which were used during the final portion of the Pokémon Quiz Battle.

In the TCG

Main article: Clefairy (TCG)

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros.

When released from a Poké Ball, Clefairy will use Metronome to copy another Pokémon's move randomly.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Clefairy also uses Metronome but uses its own series of attacks such as Blizzard, Explosion, or Fire Spin. All will hurt any opponents close to Clefairy.

Trophy information

Clefairy are very cute Pokémon, which makes them popular pets. However, as they're only found in a few areas, it takes a lot of work to find one. Strangely enough, legend has it that Clefairy are more active during the full moon. These Pokémon are known to use Metronome, a move that unleashes a randomly selected technique.

Game data

NPC appearances

Trivia

  • The prototype name for Clefairy was "Aria."
  • The Glitch Pokémon 3TrainerPoké $ will evolve into a Clefairy at level 128, a level unattainable by legitimate and unglitched Pokémon. These Clefairy can then evolve into Clefable via Moon Stone, making them some of the few Glitch Pokémon to undergo two evolutions.
    • The Glitch Pokémon ゥL ゥM 4 also evolves into Clefairy at level 18, and can then evolve into Nidoking immediately afterwards.
  • Clefairy and Clefable share the same species name with Snubbull and Granbull. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
  • Clefairy was originally going to be the official mascot of Pokémon, but Pikachu was used instead due to the popularity of the anime and Pikachu's familiarity with fans.[1][2]
  • Clefairy is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 323.
  • The Poké Doll is an item based on Clefairy.

Origin

It seems to be based on a fairy, being a magical, somewhat humanoid, winged creature, lending credit to its name.

Name origin

Clefairy is a combination of clef (French for [musical] key) and fairy.
