Fairy-type Pokémon are some of the most elusive in all Pokémon games since not too many species boast the typing. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you’ll have options of Fairy-type Pokémon to catch, but one is harder to find than other creatures.
Cleffa is the pre-evolution to Clefairy. While you’ll see a few Clefairy during your adventures, finding Cleffa will take some patience and luck. If you’re looking to find a Cleffa, though, you’ll want to start by ensuring you’re looking in the right place.
Here’s everything you need to know about where and how Cleffa will spawn in Legends: Arceus.
Where to find Cleffa in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Cleffa is one of the rarer spawns you can find in Coronet Highlands. You’ll need to head to the zone at night and swim through the waters to the bottom left of the map, at Fabled Spring.
If you arrive here at night, Cleffa can spawn on either side of the water. Given its low spawn rate, you may want to scout the lands from the water to find the Pokémon before you step on the ground to catch it. This way you’ll reduce the chance of scaring it off.
As usual, when you’ve located Cleffa, you’ll want to try and catch it with a Poké Ball before it runs away. Otherwise, you’ll need to wait for the Pokémon to spawn again, which could take quite a while.
In the meantime, the area has plenty of Clefairy and Clefable to encounter and capture so you can work on completing your Pokédex.
