Tyson found Meowth in a weak condition after a battle with a Persian, and decided to help it. And it became a loyal companion after that though it has a bitter hatred of Persians to the point that it would severely injure them. so and it also regarded Team Rocket's Meowth as a weakling and a disgrace to all Meowths.
It was strong enough to evolve into a Persian, but it refused to do. Tyson assumed Meowth was too prideful to do such a thing.
Seeing Ash and his friends getting attacked by a flock of Murkrow, Tyson had his Meowth help them. Meowth used Fury Swipes to attack the Murkrow, dispersing them. After the two sides met each other and had lunch at the restauraunt, Tyson quickly went out with his Meowth to the Pokémon Center, as they were torchrunners. While Tyson did successfully come on time and bear the torch to the finis line, he was alarmed when two frauds stole the torch when nobody was looking. The two met up with the heroes, and tracked down the frauds, who turned out to be Team Rocket. In the battle, Team Rocket dropped the torch, which Tyson's Meowth successfully secured. Team Rocket's Meowth confronted it, and was distrubed when Tyson's Meowth said it was a disgrace to all the Meowth on the world. Tyson's Meowth dared Team Rocket's Meowth to attack, only to blast him away with an Iron Tail, and defeat the rest of the enemy with a Thunderbolt.
