She was first seen when Torchic wandered off while training, and found a tired Skitty, Team Rocket's Meowth falls in love with Skitty for a while. Jessie also wanted Skitty so she and May battled Beautifly and Dustox, which May won with Beautifly and got Skitty. Despite her small size, Skitty was a very powerful fighter and was capable of using an incredibly strong Blizzard, which is made more impressive by the fact that she is not an Ice type.
May left Skitty at her house for a while after the Hoenn Grand Festival, but she returned for the Wallace Cup in which she defeated an Exeggutor with Blizzard. She was confirmed to be a female when Meowth developed a crush on her.
Skitty is shown to be a curious and ditzy Pokemon. Like May's Munchlax, she often lets herself out of her Pokeball to investigate her surroundings.
- Skitty shares some similarities with Dawn's Pachirisu, they both are very hyperactive, both were almost caught by Jessie, both have been known to cause trouble and both are voiced by their Japanese actresses in both the Japanese and English dubs.
