Cleffa is a tough Pokémon to catch in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The hardest part to catching the Pokémon that evolves into Clefairy is finding one and then securing it before it runs away. Here’s everything you need to know about Cleffa.

Cleffa can be found in the bottom left corner of the Coronet Highlands in a location called Fabled Spring. Head there at night. All you’ll need to do is go to the Coronet Highlands and then sleep until nightfall at one of the nearby camps.

Cleffa can be found on the far side of the water, but will run away if you take too long to catch it. You can tell the difference between Cleffa and Clefairy by the darker color of Cleffa’s ears. Sneak up on one, throw an Ultra Ball and catch it before it knows what’s coming.

If you mess up you can leave the Coronet Highlands, return to the main village and then go back to reset the spawn rate. It may take some trial and error to get this one right.
