If you’re searching for Cleffa in Pokémon Sword & Shield for the Nintendo Switch, then look no further – we’ve got everything you need to know right here.

Since Pokémon Sword & Shield’s release on the Nintendo Switch on November 15, players have been going wild trying to find all the baby forms.

One Pokébaby in particular has some fans scratching their heads at its whereabouts, and that’s Cleffa – the tiny version of Fairy-type monster Clefairy.

Not to worry though, as we’ve got all the details on how to obtain the adorable critter for yourself, and it’s surprisingly easy.

The Pokémon Company / Game FreakHere’s how you can get your hands on this cute baby Pokémon.

How to get Cleffa in Sword & Shield

The first thing you’ll need to do in order to own a Cleffa is to nab yourself either a Clefairy or a Clefable – doesn’t matter which.

Clefairy can be found in the Motostoke Riverbank or Giant’s Cap sections of the Wild Area during heavy fog weather conditions, and can be seen directly in the grass in the overworld.

Its evolution is obtained by evolving it with a Moon Stone, or can be found as a high-level spawn roaming around the Motostoke Riverbank, or sometimes as a random Raid.

Once you’ve got yourself one of the pink monsters, you’ll either need another of the exact same type, or a Ditto – the latter of which can be found at the Lake of Outrage at a 10% spawn chance.

Then head to the Nursery on either Route 5 or in the Bridge Field section of the Wild Area, give your Pokémon to the attendant, then wait for an Egg to spawn.

You’ll know an Egg has generated once the worker stands in a thinking pose with her hand resting on her face. Just make sure you don’t accidentally select “No” when she asks you to take it, otherwise you’ll have to wait for another.

Make sure the Egg is in one of your Party slots, then simply walk around for a few minutes. You’ll know when it’s about to hatch when an “Oh?” message pops up on screen.

If you’ve followed the steps above correctly, you’ll now be the proud owner of a new baby Cleffa – congratulations!

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
