Clefable (Japanese: ピクシー Pixy) is a Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Prior to Generation VI, it was a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Clefairy when exposed to a Moon Stone. It is the final form of Cleffa.

Biology

Clefable is tall, pink Pokémon with a vaguely star-shaped body. It has long, pointed ears with dark brown tips and black, oval eyes with wrinkles on either side. A curled lock of fur hangs over its forehead, much like its long, tightly curled tail. On its back is a pair of dark pink wings; each wing has three points. Its hands have three fingers each, and its feet have two clawed toes and dark pink soles.

Clefable is a timid creature that flees when it senses people approaching and is one of the world's rarest Pokémon. Its sensitive ears can distinctly hear a pin drop from half a mile (one kilometer) away. Because of its acute hearing, it prefers to live in quiet, mountainous areas of which it is protective. Using a bouncy gait, it is able to walk on water and sometimes appears to be flying using its small wings. The anime has shown that Clefable is actually an extraterrestrial Pokémon.

Pokémon Adventures

Main article: Lusamine's Clefable

Green had a Clefairy nicknamed Clefy, which first appeared in A Little Kadabra'll Do It. He later evolved into Clefable in The Winged Legends when Red used his Moon Stone on him. Although he was used only once for distraction against Sabrina prior to evolving, his increased power allowed him to stall Thu-Fi-Zer for a short time with his Metronome. He has since been used as a main member of her team in Green's battle against Lorelei. During the battle, he minimized himself to retrieve her miniature ice sculptures, deliberately blowing off the arm part to let the Elite Four's guard down. He has seen no major appearances since, despite always being listed as a team member.

A Clefable appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to participate in the fight in Ilex Forest.

A Clefable appeared in Deprogramming Porygon-Z, under the ownership of an Idol.

Lusamine's Clefable first appeared in Unleashing the Incredible Z-Move.

Trivia

Origin

Clefable seems to be based on fairies and pixies since it is a playful, magical, humanoid creature with wings. It may also be inspired by the concept of extraterrestrial life due to its rumored celestial origins and vaguely star-shaped body. It may also reference the mythical Moon rabbit due to its large ears, various Moon related powers, and the fact that it evolves from Clefairy using a Moon Stone.

Name origin

Clefable may be a combination of clef (a musical key, referencing its singing ability) and fable.

Pixy may be a corruption of pixie.
