Clefairy at Wikibooks Pokédex

Clefairy (ピッピ / Pippi in Japanese, Piepi in German and Melofee in French) is a fictional species of the Pokémon franchise.


Clefairy is a small, bipedal creature. It has no neck, so it seems to be somewhat stout compared to other Pokémon of its size, such as Pikachu. It has short pink fur, with a large brown patch on each of its two pointed ears. Between these ears is a large swirl of pink fur. It has two small eyes, no nose, and a small mouth with two tiny protruding fangs. It also has a patch of darker pink fur under each eye. It has white claws on its two arms and two legs. It long tail always remains curled up.

Clefairy seems to be based on a fairy, as it is a magical, somewhat humanoid, winged creature, lending credit to its name.


Clefairy is interesting in that it is supposedly not native to the Pokémon planet. There have been sightings of Clefairy, with its evolutionary forms Cleffa and Clefable, using spaceships, and the Moon Stones used to evolve Clefairy are also rumored to come from extraplanetary locations. Sometimes groups of Clefairy gather on nights of a full moon to dance and perform some type of ritual. This ritual has rarely been observed for any length of time, as the Clefairy typically flee at any sign of an intruder.

Clefairy are very well known for the move Metronome, which randomly performs any Pokémon attack when used.

In the video games

Wild Clefairy can be only found in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, FireRed, and LeafGreen. They rarely appear to Trainers in the caves that burrow through Mt. Moon in Kanto. In Pokémon Red and Blue, coins can be traded for a Clefairy at Celadon City's Game Corner.

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and all games since, Clefairy can be evolved from Cleffa with a high level of Happiness. When its Happiness is high enough, a Cleffa will evolve the next time it gains a level.

Clefairy has above-average HP, allowing it to sustain more damage than the average Pokémon.

Clefairy also appears in both Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Melee. In Super Smash Bros., Clefairy uses Metronome to randomly imitate the attack of any other Pokémon in the game. In Super Smash Bros. Melee, while still using a random attack with Metrenome, the selection of attacks seem to be unique to Clefairy, with the exception of Explosion. This attack is also used by Electrode in Super Smash Bros. Melee, except Electrode's version of the move can harm the person who released it. Clefairy using Explosion is probably a reference to the animé, where this attack seems to be the most common result of using Metronome.

In the anime

In the Pokémon anime, Clefairy first appears in Episode 6, Clefairy and the Moonstone!. Ash Ketchum's party and Team Rocket come upon Mt. Moon, and the native Clefairy lead them to a giant Moon Stone that the Clefairy seem to worship. Team Rocket attempts to steal it, but they are, as usual, thwarted by Ash. In the process, however, the giant stone shatters. But when the pieces rain down onto the Clefairy, some evolve into Clefable and aren't angered. The Clefairy and Clefable continue their strange rituals while the humans continue on their way.

Episode 62, Clefairy Tales!, reveals Clefairy to be aliens that came to the planet using spaceships. In this episode, a group of Clefairy steal Ash's party's Pokémon and attempt to bring them along as they launch into space with a large ship. The Clefairy try to use Pikachu to power the ship, but it overpowers its cage. The Trainers and their Pokémon escape, and the powerless ship ends up crashing nearby.

In Episode 248, Wish Upon a Star Shape!, a Cleffa falls from a passing spaceship and lands near Ash's party, while the ship crashes nearby. Ash's Phanpy becomes friends with the Cleffa and helps it get back to its ship, where a group of Clefairy are using pieces of Team Rocket's machine to repair the ship. Cleffa gets to the ship just in time, and Phanpy watches it evolve into a Clefairy as the ship blasts off.

Episode 411, Mt. Moon! With Cleffa, Clefairy, and Clefable! sees Ash's return to Mt. Moon, where he again runs into Cleffa, Clefairy, and Clefable.

In the manga

Clefairy is a main character in the Japanese Pocket Monsters manga series, where a male Clefairy is the starter Pokémon for Akai Isamu (nicknamed Red in the series). Clefairy is a prankster who is often stubborn, bordering on comically stupid, and always being referred to as noroma no Pippi ("that stupid Clefairy") by others. This Clefairy has also had a cameo appearance in Advanced Generation, where he is a main character in Ash's favorite movie short.

In Magical Pokémon Journey, the second Pokémon Hazel meets is a timid and shy Clefairy. He shrinks by using Minimize when he thinks he's threatened. However, when he does battle, his Metronome technique is very powerful. This Clefairy, along with Pikachu, reappears in the spin-off series Pokémon Chamo-Chamo Pretty.

In the manga series The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Ash, Professor Oak, and Bill witness a Clefairy evolution ritual.

Name origin

Clefairy's name is a combination of clef, French for (musical) key, and fairy. Its Japanese name may be a shortening and repetition of the word pixie.

In the English beta version of Pokémon Red and Blue, Clefairy's name was Aria.
