Meowscarada (Japanese: マスカーニャ, HepburnMasukānya) is a Grass/Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IX. It is the final evolved form of Sprigatito.

Biology[]

Physiology[]

Meowscarada resembles an anthropomorphic feline with light green fur covering its main body, with the exception of its dark green legs. It has a pink floral collar around its neck, a dark green appendage that resembles a mask with green diamond motifs and a black and green scarf like appendage. It has pink eyes, a triangular nose and a short tail. It is often accompanied by a four-petaled green flower.

Its alternate coloration has its pink appendages become purple and the dark green becoming black.

Behavior[]

Meowscarada are shown to be quite stealthy, using pollen-filled flower bombs to catch opponents unaware. They are in fact sneaky and sly magicians that enjoy skillfully misdirecting their foes to give themselves the advantage.

Meowscarada is a prideful and hypersensitive Pokémon that has a tendency to show off. This behavior often results in any Meowscarada becoming very attached to its trainer, as well as having a sour disposition towards other Pokémon that steal its spotlight.

Natural abilities[]

By using the reflective fur lining their capes, Meowscarada can camouflage the stem of their four-petaled green flowers, creating an illusion and making it appear as if the flowers are floating in midair, effectively confusing their foes, before assailing them with pollen-packed flower bombs. They are also the only Pokémon to use Flower Trick.

Evolution[]

Meowscarada evolves from Floragato at level 36.

    Trivia[]

    • Meowscarada is the second Pokémon whose name refers to masquerades, the first being Roserade.
    • Meowscarada has the highest Speed stat of all fully evolved Starter Pokémon.
    • Meowscarada shares some similarities with Greninja;
      • Both are Pokémon that have Protean as their hidden ability.
      • Both have a scarf-like appendage on their bodies.
      • Both are part Dark type.
      • Both specialize in speed and attack power.
    • Meowscarada has the same type combination as Nuzleaf, Shiftry, Cacturne, and Brute Bonnet, as well as Zarude and Wo-Chien.

    Origin[]

    Meowscarada is based on an Iberian lynx with some elements of a show magician such as making flowers appear.

    It also seems to take inspiration from a masquerade ball or the holiday Mardi Gras, which often involves participants wearing masks. Mardi Gras and its decorative masks are especially popular in New Orleans, which was once under Spanish rule.

    Its stealthy manner and several of the moves it can learn may be inspired by phantom thieves.

    Its mask and cape is based on attire seen on thieves, bandits and rogues such as Zorro, while its legs are based on high heel boots which are worn by female cat-burglars such as Doronjo from Yatterman, Catwoman from DC comics, and Black Cat from Marvel Comics.

    Etymology[]

    Meowscarada's name comes from a sound that a cat makes (Meow), and "Mascarada", the Spanish term for Masquerade.

    Other languages[]

    Japanese: マスカーニャ (Masukaanya) may derive from "Masquerade" and ニャ (nya), the Japanese term for "Meow".
