Clefable revealed in Pokemon Unite: Moves, stats, guide, more
Clefairy and Clefable have released for Pokemon Unite. The brand-new support Pokemon is overwhelmingly powerful. Here’s everything we know about Pokemon Unite’s Clefable, including its builds and a guide on how to play them.
The recent wave of entries in Pokemon Unite have been from the early generations of Pokemon – with Clefairy and Clefable being no exception. They are known as more of a supportive type, and play as healers in Pokemon Unite.
Unlike Scizor and Scyther, Clefairy evolves into Clefable using the conventional level up mechanic prevalent in the game.
Pokemon Unite’s Clefable released in an overpowered state, and has already received nerfs. But despite these changes, it’s still one of the best, if not the best, support in the game.
Clefable release date for Pokemon Unite
Clefairy and Clefable released in Pokemon Unite on October 13, 2022, a couple weeks after the release of Scizor and Scyther. The game appears to receive a steady stream of releases through the year, with more coming in the next couple of months.
Soon after Pokemon Unite Clefable releases, Zoroark is slated to release as well, likely two weeks after the fairy supporter.
Clefairy & Clefable stats in Pokemon Unite
Stats for Clefairy and Clefable in Pokemon Unite were datamined by ElChicoEevee. They’re missing the base stats, but the information present here is the same as the stats on Clefable’s official release.
The info shows a massive jump from levels 3 to 4, which indicate an evolution from Clefairy into Clefable. It also deals special attack for its damage, similar to Blissey. Therefore, Clefable builds more or less the same items as Blissey does.
Clefable moves in Pokemon Unite
The moveset for Clefairy & Clefable play similarly to Blissey and Wigglytuff, but mixes both of their play styles together. In essence, Clefable utilizes area of effect around it for its kit, providing insane heals and utility for its team.
As of October 14, around a day after Clefable launched, Gravity and Moonlight are undeniably the best moves for Clefable. Pokemon Unite’s Clefable heals for enormous amounts when using Moonlight, making its team practically unkillable.
Gravity is a great for Clefable. The move drastically hinders enemies around Clefable, allowing allied team members to follow up easily.
These two moves are overpowered, and therefore far outweigh the utility provided by their alternatives: Draining Kiss and Follow Me.
Best Build (Held items, Emblems, Battle Items)
For emblems, prioritize maximizing special attack and cooldown reduction. In essence, Green and Black emblems. As for Held Items, follow the recommended build below.
Here are the recommended held items:
- EXP Share
- Focus Band
- Shell Bell
EXP share and Focus Band are absolute musts on Pokemon Unite Clefable. By EXP funneling a carry, while healing them, Clefable provides excellent support. Focus Band helps Clefable stay alive during key fights. The third item is more flexible.
Shell Bell allows Clefable to heal from its attacks, but players can also switch this item out for Wise Glasses as well. The third item option is far more flexible than the other two.
Here are the recommended battle items
- Full Heal
X-Speed is the best battle item on Clefable. The extra movement speed comes in clutch when attempting to heal allies, alongside escaping sticky situations.
Full Heal and Potion are also viable, since they heal keep Clefable alive. And if Clefable is kept alive, it can keep its allies alive.
