Meowstic (ニャオニクス Nyaonikusu) is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI.

Biology

Physiology

Meowstic is a two-tailed bipedal feline Pokémon. It is likely based on the nekomata, a mystical twin-tailed cat creature of Japanese folklore. Meowstic's fur is deep blue and white in color. Meowstic's folded ears resemble cat ears, being sharp and conical; but when unfurled, Meowstic's ears are actually quite long, similar in appearance to rabbit ears. Meowstic's folded ears are similar to those of a Scottish Fold cat. Beneath its folded ears, Meowstic hides luminous eye-shaped glands from which it releases extremely powerful psychokinetic attacks. When unfolding its ears and releasing its contained psychic powers, Meowstic's eyes glow brightly and its pupils seem to disappear.

Meowstic unfurling its folded ears, revealing its eye-shaped psychic glands.

Male and female Meowstic seem to be completely inverse of each other; the male Meowstic is mainly deep blue-colored with some white patches, while the female Meowstic is mainly white-colored with some deep blue patches. Meowstic's tails also differ in appearance depending on its gender: the male form has long, upright, fluffy tails, while the female form has shorter curled tails.

Gender differences

Male and Female Meowstic differ in many ways including looks in which the male has more blue slicked and slightly spiked fur while the female has more white fur with curls, looking much like the inverse of colors that the male is. Male and Female Meowstic actually learn much different move sets, males learn more supportive and battle effecting moves while females mostly learn all out attacking moves.

Behavior

Meowstic are very calm and stoic Pokémon as they seldom show their emotions towards their trainers. Also, they sometimes use their psychic to float in the air or protect themselves when they are in danger. However, they will lose control of their power if they are too angry.

Unlike their pre-evolution Espurr, Meowstic can control their power more easily.

Both genders of Meowstic appear to have different temperament: while the majority of males are more calm, defensive and protective but will also altruistically protect their companions, most females are rather cold, callous and capricious to the degree of selfishly and aggressively punishing others with their psychic powers if anybody gets onto their nerves.

Natural Abilities

Meowstic have extremely potent psychic powers that can disintegrate anything as powerful as a tanker as a means of protecting themselves from potential threats.

Evolution

Meowstic evolves from Espurr, starting at level 25.

Pokédex entries

  • X

    When in danger, it raises its ears and releases enough psychic power to grind a 10-ton truck into dust.

  • Y

    The eyeball patterns on the interior of its ears emit psychic energy. It keeps the patterns tightly covered because that power is too immense.

  • Omega Ruby

    When in danger, it raises its ears and releases enough psychic power to grind a 10-ton truck into dust.

  • Alpha Sapphire

    The eyeball patterns on the interior of its ears emit psychic energy. It keeps the patterns tightly covered because that power is too immense.

  • Sword

    Male: Revealing the eyelike patterns on the insides of its ears will unleash its psychic powers. It normally keeps the patterns hidden, however.
    Female: Females are a bit more selfish and aggressive than males. If they don't get what they want, they will torment you with their psychic abilities.

  • Shield

    Male: The defensive instinct of the males is strong. It's when they're protecting themselves or their partners that they unleash their full power.
    Female: If it doesn't hold back when it unleashes its psychic power, it can tear apart a tanker. Its unfriendliness is part of its charm.

Trivia

Origin

Meowstic is based on a Scottish Fold cat due to its folded up ears. It may also be based on the nekomata of Japanese mythology, cats that gain supernatural abilities once they grow older and their tail split. Nekomata are also said to stand on two legs like a human and sometimes wear handkerchiefs on their heads, similarly to Meowstic's upright appearance and hair, respectively.

Etymology

Meowstic comes from meow and mystic.

Its Japanese name, Nyaonikusu, comes from ニャ (nya, "meow") and psionics.
