Klefki (Japanese: クレッフィ Cleffy) is a dual-type Steel/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Contents

Biology

Klefki is a small, grayish white Pokémon that resembles a key ring with four keys. It has a spherical head with a small, pink oval on its forehead. Two black circles and a keyhole form its eyes and mouth, respectively. Below its head is its pink, teardrop-shaped body with a white, teardrop-shaped marking in the middle. Extending from the top of its head is a horn that resembles an old-fashioned key with two wide, blunt teeth. Extending from either side of the key is a thin loop that surrounds Klefki. Hanging from the loop are various keys that this Pokémon has collected. Klefki is very tiny, tying with Alolan Diglett and Meltan as the shortest Steel-type.

In the past, Klefki inhabited mines. When the minerals it fed on became scarce, it moved to human settlements. It now feeds on metal ions by inserting its key-like horn into chinks in metal. It likes to collect keys, particularly master keys, and will sneak into people's homes to steal them. While the exact reason for this collection is unknown, it does rattle its collection to threaten predators. It will never release a key it likes, so people will give it important keys as a way to prevent theft. Klefki is the only Pokémon capable of learning Fairy Lock, and in the past claimed Crafty Shield as a signature move as well.

Sun This even-tempered Pokémon has a habit of collecting keys. It will sneak into people's homes to steal their keys.
Moon It inserts its horn into chinks in metal, absorbing metal ions. For some reason, it collects keys.
Ultra Sun Although it's unclear why it collects keys, giving it a key makes Klefki very happy. However, it apparently only likes master keys.
Ultra Moon Long ago it lived in mines, but once the minerals that make up its diet became scarcer, Klefki began appearing in human settlements.

Sword This Pokémon is constantly collecting keys. Entrust a Klefki with important keys, and the Pokémon will protect them no matter what.
Shield Klefki sucks in metal ions with the horn topping its head. It seems this Pokémon loves keys so much that its head needed to look like one, too.

Trivia

Origin

Klefki is based on a keychain, and possibly also the pagan tradition of blaming fairies for the loss of small objects such as shoes and keys. It may also be based on the superstition of carrying an iron charm to ward off fae mischief.

Name origin

Klefki is a combination of clef (French for key) or a corruption of kleptomaniac (in reference to its habit of collecting keys) and key.

Cleffy is derived from clef (French for key).
