This Skitty, nicknamed Kitty, is a normal-type Pokémon owned by Shauna.


Kitty was seen with Shauna's Furfrou when Shauna, Y, Tierno and Trevor were at X's house where Y tried to coerce X out of his room.[1] During the chaos caused by Xerneas and Yveltal, Neko, its trainer and her friends scraped passed being tossed in the air by the ensuing battle between the mighty Pokémon.[2]

With Shauna under Celosia's Honedge's control, she accidentally dropped Kitty in its Poké Ball. Y saw how scared it was in its Poké Ball, but before she could pick it up, Shauna swiped it of the ground, with Y questioning what Kitty was trying to tell her.[3] After her mind control, Kitty was seen next to Shauna when she woke up and apologized to Y, with Y apologizing back.[4]

Facing against Team Flare's grunts' Noibat, Shauna sent Kitty and commanded it to use Fake out. However, the Noibat emitted ultrasonic sounds, causing Kitty to be deaf at Shauna's commands.[5] It was also present during the time at the Superfun Minigame Corner, where Y was playing games with Veevee to bond with it.[6] Shauna let Kitty watch Tierno's roller skates move, while everyone took a break.[7]

Kitty was sent out to battle the group of Espurr sent out by a Team Flare Grunt, alongside Y's Froakie, Y's Fletchling, Tierno's Corphish and Trevor's Flabébé.[8][9]

During the falling of Cassius' helicopter, Kitty was among the group who were panicking over the falling of the helicopter.[10] Shauna sent Kitty into the battle with Team Flare for the Xerneas tree, but everyone got binded by Trevenant's roots.[11] After being freed, Shauna tried to have Kitty attack Essentia, who ran away.[12]

In Laverre City, Shauna, along with her friends, was training with her Kitty, under Gurkinn's supervision.[13][14] Along with her friends and the Gym Leaders, Shauna and Kitty went to Geosenge Town, to seal the Ultimate Weapon.[15] There, Kitty tried to push the "bud", but Shauna called it back before she and Trevor were pulled away by Tierno.[16]

Kitty was walking with the group and looked up to Blue's Charizard and Rhyperior, who inspired Kitty to become as strong as they were.[17] Kitty helped Corphish, Tierno and Shauna lift an Aggron, under which the Pinsirite was located.[18]

Shauna and Kitty set off with the group to the Pokémon Village.[19] As Shauna went to the Pokémon Village, she was taken by Celosia. Promising not to lose to Celosia, Shauna sent her Neko against Doublade.[20] Kitty parried against Doublade, as Shauna reminded Celosia she was trained by Gurkinn. Doublade stroke at Kitty to defeat it, but Neko stood back up. With Feint Attack, Kitty defeated Doublade, while Celosia saw that Kitty was emitting fur on Doublade's edge to dull it, through Play Rough move. After Celosia's defeat and meeting up with Tierno, Shauna and Kitty surrounded Aliana and her Pumpkaboo. This forced Aliana to give up from intimidating Trevor.[21]

AZ sent Golurk to attack everyone. Thus, Kitty protected Shauna from its attack. Kitty was also present with Shauna, as the group went to Vaniville Town.[22]

  • Starting from "Pinsir Changes", Kitty's nickname in the english version was Neco, but this was changed to Kitty in "Xerneas Gives". The new english nickname is actually a more literal translation of the original, as Neco is actually based around the word "neko", the Japanese term for "cat".
