This Alolan Meowth is a Dark-type Pokémon owned by Matori. It first appears as the main antagonist of the episode "Acting True to Form!" and the secondary antagonist of the episode "Spying for the Guy!"
This Alolan Meowth first appeared when it was shown as a wild Pokémon. It has a bitter rivalry towards Meowth when it temporarily joins with Jessie and James. It successfully captures Ash's Pikachu when Ash and Kiawe are busy from their sparring practice. It even traps Ash and the group. After Team Rocket are blasted away from Pikachu's Gigavolt Havoc and being taken by Bewear, the Alolan Meowth is eventually recruited by Giovanni at his main headquarters and is now owned by his secretary Matori. The Alolan Meowth also explains to Meowth its reasons to join Team Rocket as the latter translates it's language in disappointment.
Meowth was later seen with Matori and Gozu heading to Alola, under Giovanni's orders. During Team Rocket's mission to capture Necrozma, Nebby, and Lunala, the Ultra Guardians interfered and damaged the ship. But Meowth wasn't worried, and it informed them that the damage was already repaired.
Matori and Meowth then inspected the Team Rocket trio's progress in Alola. They soon quickly targeted Stufful, but ended up getting Team Rocket's Meowth that disguised as Stufful who was later saved by Bewear. Bewear later greeted Meowth and Matori when they tried to contact the trio, much to their horror.
