How to find and catch Pokémon Cleff?

Cleffa is a baby Pokemon that does not exist in nature. It may sometimes hatch from an egg.

This Pokémon was captured by a large number of players during an event.


Cleffa is a little, pink Pokémon with a strangely star-like appearance. It has fully brown ears. Cleffa has two little black eyes, a small mouth, and a slight, permanent blush on its cheeks. It has stubby arms and legs with no distinct fingers that come to a point. It features a curled up tail and a curled up forehead.

Cleffa dwells in mountainous areas, usually around meteor impact sites. Cleffa sightings are more probable on nights lighted by shooting stars, when they dance the night away, bringing good fortune to anybody who witnesses it. The following morning, they relieve their thirst by drinking dew. It is enthralled by anything that resembles stars and meteors, such as Minior. Cleffa is often thought to have come on a shooting star as a result of this, as well as its own star-shaped silhouette. The anime revealed that its developed versions (and hence Cleffa) are truly alien Pokémon.


The Pokemon Cleffa is one of the numerous creatures that may be captured in Pokemon Go. See the criteria for evolving Cleffa here. Cleffa is from the Johto second generation area and was introduced in the December 12, 2016 update, where it could only be gotten via hatching an egg. Cleffa is now accessible among the other Gen 2 Pokemon, according to the February 16, 2017 update.
