Clefairy (Japanese: ピッピ Pippi) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation VI, it was 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, a single dark pink oval marking on each cheek, 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 both feet have a single toenail. There is a pair of tiny, butterfly-shaped wings on its back. Though incapable of flight, Clefairy's wings can store moonlight and allow it to float.

Clefairy is very shy and rarely shows itself to humans. On the rare occasions that Clefairy comes down from its mountain home, it can be seen dancing underneath the full moon's light. The area surrounding their dance is enveloped in a magnetic field. Once the sun starts to rise, it returns home where it sleeps nestled with other Clefairy. There have been many sightings of Clefairy during the morning aftermath of the full moon. In the Pokémon the Series episode Clefairy Tales, Clefairy is depicted as an extraterrestrial Pokémon. Clefairy is known to be popular thanks to both its adorable look and behavior. As mentioned in Pokémon Sleep, anyone who sees a Clefairy using Metronome while sleeping will receive happiness. This sighting is considered to be a very unusual sight to witness.[1]

Before Generation V, Clefairy and its evolutionary relatives were the only known Pokémon that could have Magic Guard as an Ability.

Evolution

Clefairy evolves from Cleffa and evolves into Clefable.

Main series

Major appearances

Clefairy (recurring)

A peculiar group of Clefairy debuted in Clefairy Tales. Ash and his friends first encountered them after their spacecraft crash-landed near Viridian City. The Clefairy resorted to stealing items, including Jigglypuff's signature microphone marker and even Pikachu, from a nearby town to rebuild their spaceship.

The group, accompanied by Oswald and Jigglypuff, tracked the Clefairy to an underground cave and stormed the spaceship to recover Jigglypuff's microphone and Pikachu. Though Jigglypuff ended up defeating all of the Clefairy with Pound, the spacecraft still took off because of its preset launch, though Ash, his friends, and Jigglypuff escaped in time. Oswald remained on board until the spaceship crashed again in another village. As a result, the Clefairy once again began stealing the locals' items to return to orbit.

The Clefairy reappeared in Wish Upon a Star Shape, where the group re-encountered them after their spacecraft crashed into a Johto mountainside. Prior to the crash-landing, the Clefairy beamed a Cleffa to safety, and it landed on Ash's Phanpy. Cleffa quickly struck up a friendship with Phanpy. It later led everyone to the crash site while also trying to escape Team Rocket and the Pokémon Mystery Club (PMC).

The Clefairy went on to use the parts from Team Rocket's mecha and the PMC's machine to repair their spacecraft. Pikachu's Thunderbolt ultimately helped the craft lift off. In the process, Cleffa evolved into a Clefairy and reunited with its family.

Its known moves are Light Screen, Double Slap, and Pound.

Trophy information

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Clefairy appears as a Spirit.

Trivia

  • The prototype name for Clefairy was Aria. The Russian dub of Pokémon the Series used this name during the original series.
  • Clefairy and its evolved form share their category with Snubbull and Granbull. They are all known as the Fairy Pokémon.
    • The "Fairy Pokémon" category predates the introduction of the Fairy-type in Generation VI. From this generation onwards, the type and category of these four Pokémon share the same English name. However, this is not true in Japanese, where the type is フェアリータイプ Fairy-type and the category is ようせいポケモン Yōsei Pokémon.
  • The Poké Doll is a Clefairy doll, as identified by the Japanese name of this item (ピッピにんぎょう Pippi Doll).

Concept and development

According to an interview, Clefairy was designed by Ken Sugimori, and is one of Kōji Nishino's favorite Pokémon.[2]

Origin

Clefairy seems to be based on fairies and pixies since it is a playful, magical, humanoid creature with wings. It may also be inspired by the concept of extraterrestrial life due to its rumored celestial origins and vaguely star-shaped body. It may also reference the mythical Moon rabbit due to its large ears, various Moon related powers, and the fact that it evolves into Clefable using a Moon Stone.

Name origin

Clefairy may be a combination of clef (musical symbol) and fairy.

Pippi may be derived from the repetition of the first syllable of pixie.
