Cleffa used Sweet Kiss by GlitzerKirby

GlitzerKirby is one of the German artists that followed the call and joined GA-HQ due to the Pokemon Tribute in 2016. His three Generation I contributions covered Hitmonchan, Voltorb and finally Doduo with the Run Away move that nobody else drew in the Gen I & II Projects. When we started our Gen II Tribute, Glitzerkirby joined quickly with Sunkern, Dunsparce, Pineco and finally Cleffa.

You can see his whole gallery on dA here!


The Sweet Kiss

“The user kisses the target with a sweet, angelic cuteness that causes confusion.”

The confusion counterpart to Lovely Kiss, Sweet Kiss non-damaging Fairy-type move (originally Normal-type before Fairy was introduced) that causes the target to become confused. It is seen as a cute move in Pokemon contests.

Sweet Kiss doesn’t affect Pokemon with the Own Tempo ability and if powered up with a Fairium-Z then it will raise its special attack stage by one.

Cleffa is the first Pokemon that used the Sweet Kiss in our Pokemon Tribute!

Cleffa used Substitute by DragonchildX

DragonchildX aka Aurora from Hungary draws a lot types of different art, ranging from landscapes to human characters, fan art and a lot more. She participated in our Pokemon Gen I Project and our Nintendo 64 Anniversary Tribute and became also one of our Art Judges in the Game-Art-HQ group on deviantART!

I look forward to see more of this talented artist when we start our next art collaborations.

Please have a look at her portfolio here!



“The user makes a copy of itself using some of its HP. The copy serves as the user’s decoy”

Substitute might be one of the most original non-damaging Pokemon moves from the classic games. Instead of directly attacking or using a healing move, this creates a decoy that has 25% of the max health of the user and will take the damage instead of the caster itself.

It is especially effective when the user has only a few HP left anyway.

Mr. Mime was the first Pokemon that used the Substitute move as a part of the Pokemon Gen I Tribute!


“Its silhouette is like a star. It is believed to arrive riding on shooting stars.”


Cleffa is the baby form of Clefairy and Clefable, and being a baby Pokemon, is not able to breed until it is evolved. It is a Fairy-type Pokemon (originally Normal-type before Fairy was introduced) and is primarily female, 75% of Cleffa’s being girls.

Similar to Staryu, Cleffa is known as the ‘Star-shaped Pokemon’ and is tied with Igglybuff in having the lowest speed stat of all Fairy types. It’s Japanese name, Py, is the shortest Pokemon name in Japan.

In the Pokemon Adventures manga, the Normal-type gym leader, Whitney owned a Cleffa. She pitted it on a Pokemon she believed to be Suicune, landing a Sweet Kiss to confuse it before switching out to her Miltank to try to take it down.
