Purugly (Japanese: プニャット Punyatto) is a Normal type Pokémon.


Purugly is a large gray and white cat Pokémon. It has a angry appearance, and is known for sleeping wherever it wants, even if it has to fight a wild Pokémon to sleep in its territory. They are called the 'Tiger Cat' Pokémon, although it does not look like a tiger.

A shiny Purugly has pink fur instead of gray, and blue "eye-shadow" instead of purple. A shiny Purugly has blue at the end of its ears instead of dark purple.


In "For The Love of Meowth!", Meowth falls in love with a Glameow. She later evolves into a Purugly, bringing the budding romance to an abrupt end.


Purugly is the evolved form of Glameow. Glameow can evolve into Purugly starting at level 38.

  • 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".
