Pokédex description

Scratch Cat Pokémon
Standard Pokédex description
Meowth withdraws its sharp claws into its paws to slinkily sneak about without making any incriminating footsteps. For some reason, this Pokémon loves shiny coins that glitter with light.
- Meowth's cry
Alolan Meowth Pokédex description
A royal house that flourished in the distant past brought it here from another region. Meowth is both selfish and prideful.
Galarian Meowth Pokédex description
Living with a savage, seafaring people has toughened this Pokémon's body so much that parts of it have turned to iron.
- Galarian Meowth's cry
