Trivia

  • Purrloin was shown on September 6, 2010 in a trailer for the Pokémon BW Special due for airing September 16. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • Despite being based on a cat, neither Purrloin or its evolution are able to learn Bite or Crunch.

Etymology

  • The last part of its Japanese name, neko, is fitting because neko is the Japanese word for cats.
  • Purrloin is based on "purloin," a term used to describe a theft of any kind.
