Meowth (Japanese: ニャース Nyasu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I, a Dark-type introduced in Generation VII, and a Steel-type introduced in Generation VIII. The regular form Meowth can also Gigantamax into Gigantamax Meowth.

Biology

Physiology

Meowth is a small, bipedal, feline Pokémon. It has two white whiskers on each side of its oval-shaped face and two hairs sticking up on either side of the coin-like gem on its forehead, and highly resembles a cat. Meowth's tail and feet are cream-colored like the rest of it, but they are brown at the end. It has small paw pads on the undersides of its heels and toes. It is much like a Maneki Neko, a toy of Japanese descent known for bobbing its arm and hand up and down.

Natural abilities

Meowth has the ability Pickup or the ability Technician. Pickup allows Meowth to pick up items while the player is walking. Technician powers up non-effective moves. Meowth and Persian are the only Pokémon that can learn Pay Day (equation is Lv/2 multiplied by 10). If Meowth has Pickup, it will have Limber when it's a Persian.

In the anime, Team Rocket's Meowth is capable of human speech (a skill he learned while living on the street of Hollywood to impress a female Meowth named Meowzie).

Behavior

Meowth is largely nocturnal and often prowls the streets looking for loose change, as it is attracted to bright shiny objects for some unexplained reason.

Alolan Meowth is extremely cunning and proud and will become very aggressive when someone dirties its coin or hurt its self-esteem.

Evolution

Meowth evolves into Persian at level 28, while it evolves via max happiness into Alola Persian.

Appearances

Anime

Meowth is also a member of Team Rocket in the anime and in the Pokémon Yellow version. What is special about Team Rocket's Meowth is that he can talk (making him one of the few non-legendary to do so) with his special ability but because he used so much energy into learning how to talk, he is unable to learn Pay Day. However he is also extremely intelligent, capable of building and operating robots, rockets, etc. His 'original trainer' was Team Rocket's Boss Giovanni, who replaced him with a Persian.

Trivia

  • It's never explained why Meowth doesn't have a nose.
    • This is also shown in the anime to where Meowth from Team Rocket often breaks the 4th wall and states that "The artists didn't draw him with a nose".
  • Meowth is one of the 16 Pokémon to be made into a puppet in Japan.
  • In Super Smash Bros., Meowth is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from Poké Balls. During this time, it uses the move Pay Day.
  • In Sun & Moon and Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, Alolan Meowth evolves with friendship. However, in Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee, it instead evolves at Level 28. This may be due to the fact that Friendship was not a factor in Generation I.
  • Meowth has the most form changes of all Generation I Pokémon, having three regional-based forms (Normal, Alolan and Galar), three of two evolved regional forms (two Persian (one being Alolan) and a Galar Form-exclusive Perrserker), and a Gigantamax for a normal form.

Origin

Meowth is based off of the Maneki Neko, a Japanese yokai that supposedly gave great luck by raising its paw. They are often used as charms in the form of toys or statues that are said to bring good luck or wealth. Junichi Masuda has also stated that Meowth was based on Satoshi Tajiri's pet cat.

Its Alolan Form is based off the British Blue, a British shorthair with blue-grey fur.

Its Gigantamax form may act as a reference to the long-cat meme.

Its Galarian form maybe based on a Norwegian Forest cat with elements of a Viking.

Etymology

Meowth comes from meow and wealth.
