Side Game Data
- Despite the fact that it only evolves from Glameow from Level 38 onwards, a Level 16 Purugly is seen in Commander Mars ' team when first encountered in the Valley Windworks in the Diamond, Platinum and Pearl games. It could be speculated that Team Galactic used advanced technology to evolve a Glameow artificially, similar to how Ghetsis' Hydreigon in Black and White is explained (see page: Hydreigon).
- The names of this Pokémon and that of its pre-evolution would appear to contradict each other, as Glameow is thought to come from the words "glamourous" and "meow" while Purugly contains the word "ugly".
