Giovanni's Persian is one of Giovanni's Pokémon. It was always seen with its master and Giovanni actually seemed to care about Persian and was often seen petting it. In return, Persian was very loyal to Giovanni and went with him wherever he went. Persian has rarely been seen in battle, instead being treated as a pet. Team Rocket's Meowth hates Persian because it was Giovanni's favorite Pokémon. It was stated by Meowth that he used to be the top cat, but was replaced by that "stuck up good for nothing" Persian. Persian and Meowth have both always been wanting to get all of Giovanni's attention but it is Persian that gets Giovanni's attention.  Persian and Meowth met for the first time in the episode "Battle Aboard the St. Anne" and when Persian came petting up to Giovanni's side, Meowth was horrifed that he was replaced. 

Persian had appeared in the Best Wishes! series. It was shown to be very powerful against Ash's Pikachu, taking him out by using Shadow Claw and Power Gem.
