Competitive Information for Clefairy [Gold/Silver]
Movesets for Singles
What is a good competitive moveset for Clefairy? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Gold/Silver Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Gold/Silver generation metagame.
Clefairy is a pretty decent Normal-typed Pokemon. Clefairy is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield. There were no known abilities back in the Gold/Silver Pokemon games. Clefairy's only type-related weakness is Fighting.
Item: Eviolite / Life Orb
- Ice Beam
Special Sweeper Clefairy (Retro)
Clefairy is a remarkable Special Sweeper. It is designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Previously before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Clefairy is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until it was realized Eviolite would make it quite viable. If Eviolite is held by a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, it will raises the Defense and Special Defense of that Pokemon by 50%. Focus Sash helps protect Clefairy from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Ice Beam is a special 95-base power Ice-type move (10% chance to freeze the target).
♦ Thunderbolt is a special 95-base power Electric-type move (10% chance to paralyze the target).
♦ Psychic is a special 90-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to lower the target's special defense by 1 stage).
