Clefairy (ピッピ, Pippi) is a creature in the Pokémon media franchise.

Clefairy is a Fairy-type (Normal-type prior to Generation VI) Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #035 as the "Fairy Pokémon". It evolves into Clefable using a Moon Stone, and evolves from Cleffa as of Generation II.

Metronome is a non-damaging Normal-type move that allows the user randomly perform almost any move available. It is TM35 in Generation I. As of Generation IV, Clefairy is one of the ten Pokémon that can naturally learn Metronome.

In Super Smash Bros.[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]


Clefairy makes its debut in the Super Smash Bros. series as one of the thirteen Poké Ball Pokémon that appear in Super Smash Bros. When summoned, Clefairy will use Metronome, an attack that allows it to use the special attack of a random Poké Ball Pokémon (Mew included). Clefairy's attack will not harm the summoner.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

Clefairy's various Metronome attacks

Clefairy reappears in Super Smash Bros. Melee, although Metronome has been modified to consist of four, random attacks:

  • Gust: Any character caught in the whirlwind will take heavy amount of damage, but not enough to KO them. This can be SDI'd out of, allowing characters to escape or reduce damage taken.
  • Fire Spin: This attack burns the ground around Clefairy, damaging any opponent caught in it. Like Gust, this can be SDI'd out of.
  • Waterfall: This attack has high vertical knockback, large range, and hits many times, to the point that it can star KO a character.
  • Self-Destruct: This attack is similar to Electrode's Explosion. Any character caught in the blast radius will take damage.

As in SSB, the summoner is immune to damage from Clefairy's attacks, including Self-Destruct.


Clefairy features as a collectible trophy, unlocked as one of the 100+ trophies that can be collected randomly during normal play, such as in the Trophy Lottery and throughout the various Single-player Regular Matches.

Clefairy are very cute Pokémon, which makes them popular pets. However, as they're only found in a few areas, it takes a lot of work to find one. Strangely enough, legend has it that Clefairy are more active during the full moon. These Pokémon are known to use Metronome, a move that unleashes randomly selected techniques.
