PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm is the only fast move that benefits from STAB, and is superior to the rest. 

  • Pound is the best of the lot, though it can't be Super Effective against anything.

  • Zen Headbutt and Charge Beam can do better with type effectiveness.

  • Dazzling Gleam has high power for a 2-bar move, putting it significantly ahead of Moonblast.

  • Meteor Mash can almost catch up to Dazzling Gleam even without STAB but isn't as useful. 

  • Psychic is simply awful.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm is the best for defense, hits the hardest, and also takes advantage of STAB. 

  • Zen Headbutt has good coverage on Poison attackers. 

  • Pound performs terribly on defense. Charge Beam lies in the middle.

  • Because of its 2 bars and high power, Dazzling Gleam is much better than both Moonblast and Psychic.
  • Meteor Mash performs comparable to Dazzling Gleam but can offer some coverage. 

PVE Overview

Clefable is one of the most underrated defenders. Its Fairy typing offers a favorable matchup vs. Dragon, Fighting, and Dark types. Its role is to force switches when placed between defensive staples such as Blissey, Chansey, and Snorlax. More casual players may not know how to best counter Clefable, which functionally makes it better.

Clefable really shouldn’t be used on offense, where other Pokemon do everything that it can do better.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Charm + Meteor Mash and Psychic

The addition of Charm is a significant buff to Clefable, benefiting from STAB while enabling Clefable to deal Fairy-type damage without relying on charge moves. 

Meteor Mash is a staple for Metagross, but Clefable also has access to it and all the perks that come with it. Due to the rest of Clefable's charge moves being very expensive energy-wise, Meteor Mash sees a lot of use as either a very powerful Steel-type attack, and/or a 50 energy shield-bait. 

Psychic is now preferred as the second charge move of choice to help cover against Clefable's vulnerability to Poison-types, though it might never get to be used due to its steep 70 energy cost. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2.5 / 5

Clefable is an odd candidate for PvP, as a mono-Fairy type with decent bulk and a relatively slow moveset. The move rebalances in January and July 2019 gave Clefable two very good moves: Meteor Mash and Charm, respectively. As a mono-Fairy, Clefable sports a unique set of resistances against common meta picks, which includes Altaria and Umbreon. Interestingly enough, Clefable is also capable of completely walling Medicham regardless of shield advantages or disadvantages thanks to Charm. Due to the low energy generation of Charm, Clefable has a difficult time applying shield pressure on its opponents, and overall doesn't perform as well against foes who aren't weak to Fairy-type. 

Ultra League: 5 / 5

Thanks to the move rebalance on July 9, 2019, the addition of Charm to Clefable's moveset enables it to perform significantly better in Ultra League. Being able to completely wall both Giratinas regardless of their movesets or shield scenarios is a very valuable perk to have in a meta where Giratina's dominance makes it the the center of attention. In addition, Clefable can also beat many Pokemon that previously complimented Giratina such as Umbreon, Lucario, Dialga, and Poliwrath. Overall a very solid option in the current meta game that will likely change how players deal with Giratina and the meta surrounding it. Just keep the pink fairy away from Steel-types. 

Master League: 1 / 5

With a max CP of 2437, Clefable lacks the stats needed to compete with many of the popular picks in Masters League.
