This is a full support build that has Clefable playing passively. You gameplay should center around sticking to allies at any given moment and giving out heals using Moonlight. The build also runs Gravity, which helps Clefable slow down aggressive enemies and open them up for the team to follow through with attacks.

Since you will be focusing on supporting allies and helping them farm Wild Pokemon, Exp. Share will be your core support item, incerasing your movement speed and allowing your lane partner to level up faster. The item also keeps your exp gain on par with your allies, even if you are not actively farming. Focus Band is your defensive item that further increases Clefable's durability. It also provides extra healing for when the Pokemon's HP gets dangerously low. Lastly, Wise Glasses raises Clefable's SP. Attack stat, which also increases the amount of healing it can give with its moves.

X Speed gives you more mobility on top of the movement speed you get from Moonlight, allowing you to quickly get to your allies when they need help. Alternatively, you can run Eject Button if you prefer a instant repositioning tool for getting in position. If you are looking to increase Clefable's support capabilities through offense, Slow Smoke is another viable choice.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 5 Black Emblems for the cooldown reduction and 4 Green Emblems for extra Sp. Attack. You can use any emblem for your final slot. Focus on equiping emblems that improve Sp. Atk and HP since you need Sp. Atk for increased healing and HP for more durability. You can also go for movement speed emblems, if you can. You can freely trade Attack and Critical-Hit Rate.

This build is centered on supporting your allies with damage and heals using Draining Kiss and providing disruption with Follow Me. Although this build looks offense-focused, your gameplay should still be centered on opening up opponents for your team to take advantage of. Do not actively seek targets because your damage will not be able to keep up during brawls. Remember that you can use the mobility from Follow Me to rush towards an ally when they need help.

Both Focus Band and Buddy Barrier provide extra survivability when Clefable rushes through opponents using Follow Me. On the other hand, Wise Glasses is mainly to increase the damage and healing you get from Draining Kiss.

X Speed gives you more mobility on top of Follow Me, allowing you to quickly get to your allies when they need help. It also gives you a tool for getting around enemy disabled. If you want to have more survivability when you charge at opponents, you can opt for Potion instead.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 4 White Emblems for extra survivability and 6 Green Emblems for maximum Sp. Atk. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk and HP since you need Sp. Atk for increased healing and HP for more durability. You can freely trade Attack and Critical-Hit Rate.

This build focuses on stacking score-related bonuses with Sp. Atk. Specs to increase Draining Kiss's damage, which, in turn, improves the move's healing strength. The build also runs Gravity, which adds more damage to Clefable's kit and a way to pin down opponents for a clear shot.

Both Wise Glasses and Sp. Atk. Specs raises Clefable's Sp. Atk. stat by a significant amount, the latter getting more powerful as you score goals The higher Clefable's Sp. Atk stat is, the better its healing moves perform. For defense, Focus Band gives more durability for Clefable and a safety net when its HP reaches dangerous levels. This will be helpful during the early game, as the healing can prevent a knockdown if you get caught stacking bonuses.

X Speed gives Clefable protection from slows on top of extra movement speed. Once you get enough stacks, you can use the item to quickly get close to enemies and set up Gravity and Draining Kiss.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 4 White Emblems for extra HP and 6 Green Emblems for more Sp. Attack stat. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk to squeeze more damage for your moves. You can freely trade Attack and Critical-Hit Rate.

Score Stacking Strategy

The best time to fully stack your Sp. Atk. Specs is during the early game, where your opponents have yet to learn their move upgrades. You will mostly rely on on Disarming Voice to farm or steal Wild Pokemon camps for energy. The move can also slow down opponents for a moment, increasing your chances of escaping unscathed. As for scoring, be sure to take advantage of X Speed's extra movement speed and slow negation to dodge opponents and score little points consistently. Moreover, try your best not to aggressively score, especially if X Speed is on cooldown. The best way to get stacks, however, is to either rely on your teammates to open up goal zones or clear out lanes entirely to safely score.

Sp. Atk. Specs.pngSp. Atk. Specs Each stack bonus of Sp. Atk Specs increases Clefable's Sp. Attack stat significantly. Aside from potential damage, getting the full stacks makes Clefable's healing even more powerful.
Buddy Barrier.pngBuddy Barrier Buddy Barrier gives Clefable more durability with extra HP. The item also gives extra shields for Clefable and an ally each time you activate your Unite Move.
Focus Band.pngFocus Band Focus Band gives extra survivability with extra defenses and heals when Clefable's HP gets dangerously low. The item is great for early-game skirmishes since it can save you from an early knockdown.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Moonlight ImageMoonlight Moonlight is a straightforward recovery move that can heal multiple allies at once in a wide area. It can potentially help you and your team get ahead during crucial team fights with just raw durability!
Gravity ImageGravity Gravity allows Clefable to trap enemies in a dark zone while being able to pressure them with enhanced attacks. It is also a great counter for highly-mobile opponents that rely on hit-and-run tactics!

This moveset turns Clefable into a full-time supporter that has it disrupt opponents while giving out high amounts of HP recovery. Alternatively, Draining Kiss, gives you the damage you need to keep up with farming Wild Pokemon as well as dealing pressure to stave off opponents. Although you are sacrificing AoE heals, you will find Draining Kiss to be a sufficient healing move for highly durable lane partners, particularly All-Rounders and Defenders. Moreover, you can learn Follow Me if you are looking to get more aggressive with your disruption.

How to Play Clefable

Jump to Section

Focus on Supporting Allies

Clefable's effectiveness in combat relies on your ability in providing heals for your allies as well as open up opponents for your team to take advantage of. See to it that you maintain your passive gameplay and support your team by any means necessary.

Avoid Seeking Knock Downs

While Clefable is capable of pressuring opponents with damage, you should not depend on Clefable's offense to get knockdowns. Instead, you will want to focus on either healing your ally to give them more time in battle or opening up opponents with your hindrance moves for your ally to follow through.

Overall, do not actively seek out opponents to knock down. Use Clefable's moves defensively, and only engage in fights only if your allies prompted the engagement.

Be Present During Team Fights

As a support Pokemon, you will want to avoid roaming too far from your allies and missing out on important clashes. This is especially true when contesting important objectives like Regieleki and Rayquaza as those battles mostly have both teams going on full blast. It is important that you will provide aid to your allies before or during team fights so they can benefit from your healing and disabling move. You do not want to join and engage in a fight after your whole team falls, as Clefable's lack of high-damage moves will not be able to finish off opponents.

Objectives Guide (Remoat Island): When to Target Bosses

Steal Wild Pokemon with Disarming Voice

For most of the early game, you will depend on Disarming Voice for farming exp and fighting opponents. Although the move does not pack that much damage, its value lies in its sure-hit, AoE attack, where you can deal damage from range instantly. It is best to use the move to steal Wild Pokemon spawns from the opposing team and deny them EXP. And, thanks to the move's relatively wide range, you can even hit opponents too and pressure them enough to stave them off their position.

Disarming Voice: Clefable Move Effect and Cooldown

Pick Healing Move Based on Playstyle

Pokemon UNITE - Healing Charizard with Moonlight

When it comes to learning your healing move upgrade, Clefable can continue its passive gameplay with high-intensity heals or sacrifice some healing and utility for more damage. Although both moves are viable heal outlets, they offer different playstyles that will determine how Clefable should act when its support is needed in battle.

Get More Heals with Moonlight

Moonlight is a straightforward healing move that can easily fill up an ally's HP in a matter of seconds, especially when it gets the full amount of ticks. It has a wide area that can potentially bring HP recovery to all team members during a fight. Take note, however, going for this move locks you into the pure support playstyle as you will not be able to contribute to the team's offense. This also means that your farming efficiency will take a hit as you will not be able to deal as much damage.

Moonlight: Clefable Move Effect and Cooldown

Contribute Damage with Draining Kiss

Draining Kiss trades a direct way of healing allies for more damage. The move incentivizes you for getting aggressive with an AoE attack allowing you to hit multiple opponents at once and quickly heal an ally in the process. If there is no ally Pokemon near you, however, the healing will be directed to Clefable! Moreover, you can take advantage of the multi-hit and heal by farming the Altaria and Swablu spawns that are clump together. Take note, however, you cannot directly heal your allies out of combat as you will need to target an enemy to get the healing benfits.

Draining Kiss: Clefable Move Effect and Cooldown

Healing Effects Scale with Sp. Attack

Pokemon UNITE - Clefable Healing The Team With Unite Move.png

Aside from an increase in move damage, the amount of HP Clefable can provide with its healing moves like Moonlight and Wonder Wish scales up with the Pokemon's Special Attack Stat. Simply put, the higher your Special Attack, the more heals you and an ally will receive. This also means that stacking bonuses with Sp. Atk. Specs can drastically increase Clefable's healing once you reach full stack.

Attack Vs. Special Attack | Physical and Special Damage Explained

Get Shields For Healing Allies

Clefable's passive ability, Magic Guard, incentivizes you with extra shields for healing allies. This interaction allows Clefable to further increase its survivability, especially when fights go chaotic. As much as possible, activate either Moonlight or Draining Kiss near allies to get the most value out of the passive ability.

Magic Guard: Clefable Passive Effect and Cooldown

Pick Hindrance Move Based on Enemy Composition

Pokemon UNITE - Disrupting Gengar With Gravity

When Clefable reaches level 6, it will have access to its hindrance move - Gravity or Follow Me. This allows the Pokemon to further support the team by disabling opponents and setting up knockdowns. Depending on the opposing team's composition, one move may offer more utility than the other.

Use Follow Me to Disrupt Enemy Positioning

Follow Me is a more aggressive move that has Clefable sprinting toward an area and pulling opponents with it. The move turns Clefable into bait for enemies to follow, allowing your teammates to take advantage of the charm effect.

A good strategy is to flank the enemy team and activate the move behind enemy lines and hitting enemies along the way to make them let go of their positioning. This is best used for enemy Attackers that rely on dealing damage from a safe distance.

Follow Me: Clefable Move Effect and Cooldown

Use Gravity to Punish Aggressive Opponents

Gravity lets you create a dark zone to trap opponents. While inside the zone, Clefable's attacks will be enhanced, and enemy movement speed will be reduced. Moreover, opponents looking to dash past the affected area will be stopped and stunned for a short amount of time, allowing you and your teammates to pin opponents in place if they get aggressive.

Learn this move if you are up against highly mobile opponents that rely on hit-and-run tactics like Speedsters or slippery brawlers like All-Rounders.

Gravity: Clefable Move Effect and Cooldown

Activate Wonder Wish During Clashes

Wonder Wish is a great team fight move that allows you to heal up your allies in an instant. Because of this, the move is best used during crucial team fights where you can get ahead by mere durability. Combine the move with the healing effects of Moonlight, and you got yourself a heal engine that can keep your team from falling in battle!

Total Damage (Lvl. 15): 17,685 (HP-based)

After activating Wonder Wish, you will have an extra move activation that lasts for 10 seconds. The extra move is chosen at random - ranging from the high damaging Hyper Beam to a disruptive Block. Although all the bonus moves are generally helpful, the randomness prevents you from realizing specific plays. Fortunately, thanks to Wonder Wish's low recharge rate, 89 seconds, it is possible to use the move frequently in a single match.

Clefable Progression and Leveling Guide

Level Objectives
1 - 3 • Stick with one of your allies in the top or bottom lane. Focus on healing them with Heal Pulse.
• Secure Wild Pokemon for your ally. Utilize the ranged AoE attack from Disarming Voice to steal Wild Pokemon spawns while also dealing damage to opponents.
4 - 7 • Once Clefable fully evolves at level 4, you will have access to an upgraded heal move. Learn Moonlight for better AoE heals. Otherwise, learn Draining Kiss for damage.
• When the match time reaches 8:50 secure the Altaria and Swablu spawns in the middle of the lanes with your ally. Depending on the opposing Pokemon you are up against, you can go head first toward the spawn location and soak up damage for your ally while healing. Otherwise, let your ally get aggressive and actively heal them.
• Help your allies secure objectives at the 7:00 mark. Generally, the priority should be Regieleki to get ahead in points in the early game. If the enemy team manages to secure Regieleki, however, see to it that your team secures the bottom lane objective to negate their advantage.
• Once Clefable learns its hindrance move at level 6, you can now help set up knockdowns for the team. Regardless of which move you pick, it is best to use them only when opponents force an engagement, allowing you to trap them in place for your allies to follow up with attacks.
• Only engage your opponents if they are over-extending. Do not seek to get knockdowns, unless your team's jungler helps the lane.
8 - 11 • Keep supporting your ally using Moonlight or following up the aggression with Draining Kiss.
• When Clefable reaches level 10, it can now learn its unite move, Wonder Wish. The move adds to Clefable's already great healing kit, which allows you to further increase your team's survivability during fights. You can also use the move's second activation to contribute to your team's overall offense.
• Help your allies secure the next objective spawns. Expect your opponents to use their Unite Moves as teams clash. Be sure to keep a Moon Light or Wonder Wish at ready, just in case your team's HP falls dangerously low.
• Once Clefable reaches level 10 it will have access to an upgraded healing move. At this point, the Pokemon is now capable of handling itself in a fight thanks to stronger heals. However, it is still best to use that boost in healing to support allies.
12+ • Continue to stick with your allies to hunt targets, secure objectives, and push lanes.
• Try to reach at least level 12 before or when Rayquaza spawns for a fully-upgraded moveset.
• Make sure you have Wonder Wish available when Rayquaza spawns.
• For the best value, activate Wonder Wish or any healing move while you are in the middle of the fight so you can heal all your allies within an area.

Clefable Combos

Moon Trap Combo

Moon Trap Combo
Moonlight IconGravity IconStandard Attack Icon x4

This combo sees Clefable getting aggressive with Gravity. For the best result, perform this combo with at least one (1) ally. Start by getting close to the target. Then, activate Gravity to trap them in place. Since they will be forced to engage, immediately activate Moonlight to recover HP from their attacks. After that, proceed to bombard the target with enhanced Standard Attacks from Gravity.

Multi-Heal Pull Combo

Multi-Heal Pull Combo
Follow Me IconDraining Kiss IconStandard Attack Icon ~


This combo utilizes the multi-AoE hit and heals from Draining Kiss with Follow Me as a setup. For the best value, you can either pull the targets towards allies or clump opponents together to get multiple hits at once. Start by flanking the enemy and activating Follow Me towards an advantageous position. After the targets are pulled by Follow Me's effect, quickly activate Draining Kiss to deal damage to them and heal up. Proceed to pressure the targets with Standard Attacks.

Ultimate Wonder Aggression Combo

Ultimate Wonder Aggression Combo
Follow Me Icon or Gravity IconMoonlight IconWonder Wish Icon

This combo is best performed during team fights. Note that the move you get by activating Wonder Wish is random. At best, you will be able to burst down the target with a Hyper Beam. At worst, you will just push them back with a Block or a Hydro Pump. Overall, the focus of this combo is to open up your enemies and heal your allies during the clash. Treat the extra move you get from Wonder Wish as a bonus.

Start by hindering the enemy team using either Gravity or Follow Me. Then activate Moonlight to heal your allies. Be sure to position yourself in the middle of the team for the best healing value. Then, activate Wonder Wish to heal your allies even more. Depending on the extra move you get from Wonder Wish, you may be able to contribute damage to knock down opponents.

Hard Counter Raw Damage

Even though Clefable can sustain itself with HP recovery, it is still slow enough for Pokemon with high damage to take advantage. Also, its effectiveness in combat drastically falls down if it is away from its allies. When you find Clefable isolated, do not hesitate to engage and pressure the Pokemon until it falls!

Pokemon Explanation
Buzzwole ImageBuzzwole Rating: ★★★★★
• Can burst down Clefable with a full Muscle Gauge.
• Has fast and hard-hitting Boosted Attacks that are too much Clefable to handle.
• Clefable's lack of unstoppable moves makes it suceptible to being pinned down by Buzzwole's powerful crowd control.
Urshifu ImageUrshifu Rating: ★★★★
• Clefable lacks any reliable damage to cut through Urshifu's high durability.
• Due to Urshifu's innately high crit damage and Unseen Fist's effects, boosted attacks hurt Clefable more.
Ebon Fist and Wicked Blow can quickly melt down any squishy Pokemon that gets hit.
Absol ImageAbsol Rating: ★★★
• Although Gravity can essentially negate dash moves, Absol's innately high attack damage, coupled with its high critical-hit rate, allows the Pokemon to take down Clefable easily without getting hindered too much.
Mew ImageMew Rating: ★★★
• Since Clefable's defenses are relatively low compared to other Supporters in the roster, high-impact, Sp. Attackers like Mew can easily pressure Clefable from afar even before it gets to melee range.
• Has access to Solar Beam in the early game, which can easily pressure opponents in lanes hard enough for any healing to keep up.
Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Rating: ★★★
• Even though Mr. Mime is also a support Pokemon, it can still keep up with Clefable's heals with its arsenal of damaging moves. Linking through Power Swap gives Mr. Mime a means to heal itself while also dealing damage.

Even Matchups

Since you will be sticking with your allies for most of the time, constantly providing support through healing and crowd control can turn fights in your favor. See to it that you do not actively seek out these Pokemon to knock down. Rather, only strike at the right time like when they overextend.

Team Up with Allies

Durable Pokemon with Crowd Control
Blastoise Image Crustle Image Greedent Image Mamoswine Image Slowbro Image Snorlax Image Wigglytuff Image
How to Beat
• Team up with allies to take them down.
• Get close and use Gravity to slow them, or use Follow Me to force them to attack you while your allies deal damage.
• If you get Block or Hyrdo Pump after using Wonder Wish, use it to control their movement.
• If you get Hyper Beam, aim it at them for huge damage.

Disrupt the Supporters

Supporters
Blissey Image Eldegoss Image Hoopa Image Sableye Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon have the same support playstyle as Clefable and rely on their allies for damage. Take them out first so can't heal or buff their team during fights.
• Use Gravity when they're grouped closely with their allies to slow them and prevent their allies from using dash moves. Otherwise, use Follow Me to prevent them from using their moves and force them to counter attack.
• Use Moonlight when staying close to your allies and keep using it to provide constant AoE healing. Use Draining Kiss when they're grouped closely with their allies for maximum damage and healing.
• Regardless of what move Wonder Wish gives Clefable, utilize that move to control enemy movement.

Sustain through their Damage

Pokemon with Burst Damage
Decidueye Image Duraludon Image Gardevoir Image Zeraora Image Zoroark Image
How to Beat
• Keep using Moonlight to heal your allies as they attempt to knockout these Pokemon.
• When you or they get close, use Gravity to slow them and get a few hits in while they're inside the gravity zone. This is especially true Zeraora since Gravity can prevent it from dashing in and out of fights.
• Use Wonder Wish to save an ally and press the attack.
• If you get Block or Hyrdo Pump after using Wonder Wish, use it to control their movement.
• If you get Hyper Beam, Fly, or Close Combat, use it to burst them down quickly.

Easy Matchups

Although Clefable cannot keep up in terms of damage, It can use Gravity to either pressure targets or shut down certain Pokemon completely.

Trap With Gravity

Mobile and Sturdy Pokemon
Aegislash Image Charizard Image Dodrio Image Talonflame Image
How to Beat
• These Pokemon are mobile attackers that love to dive in clashes. Use Gravity and keep them inside to prevent them from attacking while they're on the gravity zone. This prevents them from fighting back and are forced to drop aggression.
• While inside the affected zone, enemies will not be able to launch Boosted Attacks since the attacks are considered as dash moves.
