'''Meowth''' (Japanese: '''ニャース''' ''Nyaasu'') is a {{Type|Normal}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (creature)|Pokémon]] introduced in [[Generation I]].
  +
  +
==Biology==
  +
===Physiology===
  +
Meowth 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.
  +
  +
===Special 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]]).

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]].

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

Biology

Physiology

Meowth 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.

Special 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).

Evolution

Meowth evolves into Persian at level 28.

Appearances

In the 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.

The anime series made Meowth the second most popular Pokémon of all time, next to Pikachu.

Trivia

Origins

It's name is based on "Meow," the onomatopoeia for a cat's noise.
