Biology

Physiology

Purrloin is a small feline Pokémon. It has mainly deep purple fur, with cream-colored patches on its muzzle, forehead, chest, forelegs, back, and back feet. Purrloin has green eyes with slit pupils and large angular pink eyelids. It has a blunt catlike muzzle with a small black triangular nose. It has pointed catlike ears and whisker-like tufts of fur on either cheek. It has a sleek, slender body with small dainty paws and feet. Its tail is long and skinny with a crescent-like tuft at the tip.

Although it is generally a quadruped (seen running on all fours), Purrloin is capable of standing and walking on two legs, like a biped (similar to Meowth).

Behavior

Purrloin is extremely smart, crafty, and mischievous. It puts on a cute act in order to steal items from people just to see the shocked looks on their faces. When threatened, it will attack with its sharp retractable claws.

Evolution

Purrloin evolves into Liepard at level 20.

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.

Origin

Purrloin is based on a black cat.

Etymology

Purrloin's English name is derived from the words "purr" (the sound a contented cat makes) and "purloin," (a term used to describe a theft of any kind).

Its Japenese name, Choroneko, may be a combination of ちょろまかす choromakasu (to steal) and 猫 neko (cat).
