Clefable (ピクシー) is the 36th Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Fairy-Type, formerly Normal-Type, and is known as the Fairy Pokémon.

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. A third Ability is available to Clefable from the Dream World, the Unaware Ability. This Ability ignores the Statistic Modifications of the opposing Pokémon.

Cleffa can evolve into Clefairy with a high Happiness towards its trainer and leveling up, and can evolve a second time into Clefable by using a Moon Stone on it.

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.

[edit] Physiology

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 appearance.

Clefable doesn't have any gender differences.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

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.

Clefable is also usable in Ubers despite its mediocre bulk by Ubers standards due to its amazing typing and Unaware, which gives way for it to counter some of the most threatening setup sweepers, such as Calm Mind variants of Arceus, Geomancy Xerneas, and Swords Dance Arceus. Clefable is also a great supporter with access to moves like Wish and Heal Bell. Clefable has to choose between investing in special defense to check Xerneas and Calm Mind Arceus, or physical defense for Swords Dance Arceus, as it cannot check all three threats altogether. Clefable is hampered by its susceptibility to hazards in Ubers as it cannot run Magic Guard or it won't retain its defensive niche. Clefable's lack of offensive prowess leaves it vulnerable to being bait to Primal Groudon, Ho-oh, and Mega Gengar, with the latter being capable of trapping Clefable and eliminating it without much trouble. Despite these flaws, it makes for a solid defensive Pokemon in the tier and has a very unique niche.
