Clefairy (Japanese: ピッピ Pippi) is a Fairy-type Pokémon, and prior to Generation VI, 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

Clefairy floating

Clefairy is a bipedal, pink Pokémon with a chubby, vaguely star-shaped body. A small, pointed tooth protrudes from the upper left corner of its mouth. It has wrinkles beside its black, oval eyes, dark pink, oval markings on its cheeks, two small wings, and large, pointed ears with brown tips. A tuft of fur curls over its forehead, much like its large, upward-curling tail. Each stocky arm has two small claws and a thumb on each hand, and each of its feet has a single toenail.

Clefairy is very shy and rarely shows itself to humans. On the rare occasions it does come down from its mountain home, it can be seen dancing under the light of the full moon. Once the sun starts to rise, it returns home where it sleeps nestled with other Clefairy. Though incapable of flight, Clefairy's wings can store moonlight and allow it to float. The anime has shown that Clefairy is actually an extraterrestrial Pokémon.

Clefairy in Pokémon Pocket Monsters

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 named Clefy which first appeared in A Little Kadabra'll Do It that later evolved into Clefable in The Winged Legends 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 Thu-Fi-Zer 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 Cliff and Cliffette as seen in Cautious Clefairy.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Main article: Red's Clefairy

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.

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 its evolution share their 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]
    • In the original pilot episode of the anime, Clefairy was intended to be Ash's starting Pokémon. Due to a last minute change, the role went to Pikachu. This would have made the anime closer to the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga, which would later be referenced in Lights, Camerupt, Action!, where its main character, Red, along with his Clefairy starred in a film that Ash and Gary were watching when they were younger.
  • Clefairy is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 323.
  • The Poké Doll is an item based on Clefairy.
  • Clefairy is the first Fairy-type Pokémon in National Pokédex order.
