Meowth (Japanese: ニャース Nyaasu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and a Dark-type introduced in Generation VII.

Biology

Physiology

Meowth is a small, bipedal, feline Pokémon. It has two white whiskers on each side of its oval-shaped face and two hairs sticking up on either side of the coin-like gem on its forehead, and highly resembles a cat. Meowth's tail and feet are cream-colored like the rest of it, but they are brown at the end. It has small paw pads on the undersides of its heels and toes. It is much like a Maneki Neko, a toy of Japanese descent known for bobbing its arm and hand up and down.

Natural abilities

Meowth has the ability Pickup or the ability Technician. Pickup allows Meowth to pick up items while the player is walking. Technician powers up non-effective moves. Meowth and Persian are the only Pokémon that can learn Pay Day (equation is Lv/2 multiplied by 10). If Meowth has Pickup, it will have Limber when it's a Persian.

In the anime, Team Rocket's Meowth is capable of human speech (a skill he learned while living on the street of Hollywood to impress a female Meowth named Meowzie).

Behavior

Meowth is largely nocturnal and often prowls the streets looking for loose change, as it is attracted to bright shiny objects for some unexplained reason.

Alolan Meowth is extremely cunning and proud and will become very aggressive when someone dirties its coin or hurt its self-esteem.

Evolution

Meowth evolves into Persian at level 28, while it evolves via max happiness into Alola Persian.

Alola Form: It’s impulsive, selfish, and fickle. It’s very popular with some Trainers who like giving it the attention it needs.
Ultra Moon
Normal Form: It loves coins, so if you give it one, you can make friends with Meowth easily. But it’s fickle, so you can’t count on that friendship lasting.
Alola Form: A royal house that flourished in the distant past brought it here from another region. Meowth is both selfish and prideful.

Appearances

Anime

Meowth is also a member of Team Rocket in the anime and in the Pokémon Yellow version. What is special about Team Rocket's Meowth is that he can talk (making him one of the few non-legendary to do so) with his special ability. He is also extremely intelligent, capable of building and operating robots, rockets, etc. His 'original trainer' was Team Rocket's Boss Giovanni, who replaced him with a Persian.

Trivia

  • It's never explained why Meowth doesn't have a nose.
  • Junichi Masuda said that Meowth was based on Satoshi Tajiri's pet cat.
  • Meowth is one of the 16 Pokémon to be made into a puppet in Japan.

Origins

  • It's name is based on meow (the onomatopoeia of a cat) and wealth.
