Meowth (Japanese: ニャース Nyarth) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Persian starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Meowth has a feline appearance, resembling a small house cat. While a few have the ability to walk on two legs, most Meowth are quadrupeds. It has cream-colored fur, which turns brown at its paws and tail tip. Its oval-shaped head features four prominent whiskers, no nose, black-and-brown ears, and a glimmering gold oval coin (also known as a "charm") embedded in its forehead. Like Persian and "real-life" cats, Meowth is capable of retracting the claws on its fore- and hind-paws and bringing them out again when needed.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Meowth are valued for their ability to collect coins using Pay Day, as they are the only Pokémon that learn it. Meowth are also capable of dealing relatively powerful scratching attacks like Fury Swipes or Night Slash.

Behavior

Meowth are very fond of anything round and shiny. As such, they have been known to wander about city streets and pick up anything that is round and shiny—coins in particular. Although they are apparently not nocturnal, they spend most of the daytime napping. Meowth are considered rivals of Murkrow, because Murkrow are also known for stealing round and shiny objects and these two Pokémon have been known to steal from each other's hordes.

Wild Meowth tend to live in groups in urban areas.

Habitat

Urban

Urban Pokémon

Meowth usually live in towns and cities. They can also occasionally be found in vibrant forests or near beaches. It is normally native to Kanto and Johto..

Diet

Meowth is a carnivore. However, Meowth have been sighted eating fruit, which could indicate that it is also an omnivore.
