Persian (Japanese: ペルシアン Perushian) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Persian resembles a large cat or a bit like Lynx. Its fur is beige in color, and it has a curly tail. There is also a small, red gem on its forehead, which is said to give the Pokémon power. The Persian is named after the Persian breed of cat, although it resembles a cougar, with a yellowish white fur color. It may possibly an albino cougar. Another possibility is that it is based on a Siamese cat. It also has a beige coloring and black ears much like Persian and has medium sized whiskers. This Pokémon, while very beautiful and elegant is not the best pet. The reason for this is that Persians are known to have unpredictable temperaments apt to turn vicious in the blink of an eye, one moment it might be contentedly rubbing its head against it's trainer's hand while it is being petted, the next it could unsheathe its claws and scratch the hand that was petting it.

Special abilitiesEdit

Some Persian have the ability Limber while others have Technician. Limber prevents Persian from being paralyzed. Technician powers up non-effective moves. Persian will have the Dreamworld ability Unnerve which will prevent its opponent from consuming its berry.

EvolutionEdit

Persian is the evolved form of Meowth, as of level 28.

AppearancesEdit

AnimeEdit

In the anime, Giovanni owns a Persian. This Persian is often found near Giovanni during his discussions with other Team Rocket members. Meowth from Team Rocket is jealous of this Persian because of the treatment it gets from Giovanni. Both Tyson's Meowth and Team Rocket's Meowth dislike Persian due to an event in their past.

TriviaEdit

  • Although Persian is named after the breed of cat, it doesn't share similarities with the breed of the same name. Its looks are largely based on a Siamese cat.
  • In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Persian is Pokémon Square's bank owner but later replaced by Duskull in future Mystery Dungeon titles.
