Glameow (Japanese: ニャルマー Nyarumaa) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in the Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Glameow is a feline Pokémon, with its base color being grey. It has two, fairly cat shaped yellow and blue eyes that are slightly doted with pink lids. Its ears give the head an almost crescent moon shaped effect that has been flipped horizontally, and are tipped with white on the ends. The most noticeable feature of Glameow however is the tail, an ascending coil from the rear that ends with a fluffy tip. Another characteristic of the Sinnoh Pokémon is the ruffles of fur around its neck and legs, as well as the paws colored pure white.

The only noticeable change of a Glameow's shiny form is that its usual grey fur pigment is replaced with a bright shade of purple.

Behavior

Glameow can be fickle and spiteful — especially when it is hungry and its Trainer hasn’t fed it yet. It may show its displeasure by hooking its claws into its Trainer’s nose. When it is happy, its tail dances like a ribbon. However, it can also be very sweet and cuddly, making it a good pet, and will purr when it’s feeling affectionate. It is very devoted to its Trainer if it is treated nicely, as shown with Zoey’s Glameow and Dawn’s mother Johanna’s Glameow.

Gender differences

No physical changes in gender have been reported.

Evolution

Glameow evolves into Purugly once it reaches level 38.
