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] Game Information

[edit] Spin-Off Games

Clefable make appearances at Endless Level 51, Pair Trozei, Forever Level 1 and Mr. Who's Den in Pokémon Trozei!.

Clefable appears in all three versions of Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing in each game's respective Unown-and Final-themed areas.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
