 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
In the Sixth Generation, Clefable received a massive buff in its new-found Fairy typing. This propelled it into the OverUsed Tier. With great mixed bulk, an amazing typing, two great abilities in Unaware, which shuts down some of the most fearsome set-up sweepers of the tier, such as Dragon Dance Dragonite and Tail Glow Manaphy, and Magic Guard, which provides Clefable an immunity to Toxic, Leech Seed, and other passive damage. Clefable's best set is its Calm Mind set, which can set up with ease on some of the biggest threats in the metagame 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.
In the Fifth Generation, Clefable found itself in the Rarely-Utilized and Under-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While its Special Defense is respectable when combined with its HP, it also has a great Ability to use: Magic Guard. In addition, it was a wide movepool that can run a Support set that includes passing Wish, healing team members with Heal Bell, and throwing up an entry hazard in Stealth Rock.
Offensively, Clefable's movepool is very wide, and with Magic Guard it can use a Life Orb and not take any recoil damage, which holds true for moves that cause recoil.
Strong physical attackers are Clefable's primary weakness (especially strong Fighting-Type attacks), which will tear through Clefable's lower Defense, while Taunt shuts down its support options.
