Clefable can use one of two Abilities: Cute Charm, which has a 30% chance of infatuating an opponent of the opposite gender that uses a move requiring physical contact against it; or Magic Guard, which prevents all forms of indirect damage, taking damage from only direct-attacking moves. Its Hidden Ability is Unaware, which ignores the Statistic Modifications of the opposing Pokémon.
Clefable is in the Fairy Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 2,560 Steps to hatch. It takes Clefable 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Clefable is a small-ish pink Pokémon with visible wings on its back, but these wings don't enable Clefable to fly. It retains the curled tail and curled head tuft after evolving. The tips of its ears take on a black color.
Clefable doesn't have any gender differences.
Clefable make appearances at Endless Level 51, Pair Trozei, Forever Level 1 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.
The only way to obtain a Clefable in the first set of Mystery Dungeon games is to evolve Clefairy. In Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, Clefable can be found at The Nightmare B1-B17 and Marine Resort B1-B19. Clefable appears in all three versions of Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing in each game's respective Unown-and Final-themed areas.
Clefable can be found at Firebreathing Mountain Autumnwood 3-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after completing the game. In Pokémon Rumble U, Clefable can be found at Flower Garden section called the Mt. Moon Festival.
Trading Card Game
Clefable is listed in 10 different sets. It is listed as a Common Card in the Versus Set; as an Uncommon Card in the EX Unseen Forces and Plasma Storm sets; and as a Rare Card in the Jungle (2), Gym Heroes, Expedition (2), EX FireRed and LeafGreen, Diamond and Pearl, HeartGold/SoulSilver and Call of Legends sets.
Wild Clefable make appearances in Clefairy and the Moon Stone and A Real Cleffa-Hanger, both episodes taking place in the vicinity of Mt. Moon. Other trainers have used Clefable in Stage Fight, Beauty and the Breeder, Deceit And Assist! and New Plot - Odd Lot!.
While Clefable has yet to appear in any of the films, Wild Clefable make an appearance in the Pikachu Short "Pikachu's Vacation".
Using the Moon Stone that Red had found on Mt. Moon, Green would evolve her Clefairy into a Clefable in Chapter 33. Nicknamed Cleffo by his Trainer, he would make subsequent appearances in Chapters 69, 84, 270, 271, 286 and 334.
In the Sixth Generation, Clefable received a massive buff in its new-found Fairy typing, making it one of the biggest metagame defining Pokemon. This propelled it into the OverUsed Tier. With great mixed bulk, an amazing typing that allows it to check many top tier threats in Mega Sableye, Kyurem-B, and Mega Lopunny, two great abilities in Magic Guard, which provides Clefable an immunity to Toxic, Leech Seed, and other passive damage, and Unaware, which shuts down some of the most fearsome set-up sweepers of the tier, such as Dragon Dance Mega Altaria and Tail Glow Manaphy. Clefable's best set is its Calm Mind set with Magic Guard, which can set up with ease on some of the biggest threats in the metagame, not care about status ailments, and proceed to tear teams apart. Clefable can alternatively run a more supportive set with moves like Stealth Rock, Heal Bell, and Wish with either a physically defensive or specially defensive bias depending on what is necessary to check. Clefable can also utilize a Calm Mind set with Unaware and set up on setup sweepers that Magic Guard Clefable is incapable of checking. Lastly, Clefable can take a more offensive route with a Tank set that has decent power when packed behind a Life Orb. Clefable's only real flaw is its vulnerability to Taunt and lack of great offensive prowess when considering the defensive sets.
