Persian (Japanese: ペルシアン Persian) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Meowth starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Persian resembles large, quadruped felines, like mountain lions. Its tail has a distinctive whorl at the end, similar to its pre-evolution, Meowth. Its fur is pale tan with the exception of its black-rimmed ears. Perhaps its most distinctive feature is the red jewel in the center of its forehead. Many Pokémon, particularly those with {{Psychic}} abilities such as Espeon, Golduck, and Staryu, have similar jewels; Persian, however, {{Normal|<does not demonstrate any affinities to a particular element>}}, so this connection seems to be purely coincidental. Like Meowth and 'real-life' cats, Persian is capable of retracting its claws and bringing them out again when needed.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Its thick whiskers are very sensitive to changes in air movements, enabling it to detect its prey by movement alone. Persian's lithe muscles also enable it to walk without making a sound. Persian has the same scratching abilities as its pre-evolution, but they are notably stronger. Persian can also wield the scarce Power Gem and Switcheroo moves.

Being a fully evolved Pokémon, Persian has access to the moves Giga Impact and Hyper Beam.

Behavior

Persian, although popular for its elegance, is extremely difficult to raise as a pet. Underneath its refined facade is a fierce predator. It will Scratch anyone, including its Trainer, with little or no provocation. One should be wary if Persian raises its tail straight up, as it is a signal that Persian is about to pounce and bite. Persian has been observed ripping its prey apart for no discernible reason. When a Persian is yanked by its whiskers, it becomes temporarily docile. The reason for this is unknown. Persian is known to hold its tail out straight if it is an experienced battler.

Habitat

Urban

Urban Pokémon

Persian usually live in towns and cities but can also be found occasionally in forests, particularly in Kanto.

Diet

Persian is a carnivore, hunting prey and tearing it apart with no discernible reason.
