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.
