Flavor Text
X It is nocturnal in nature. If it spots something shiny, its eyes glitter brightly.
Y Adores round objects. It wanders the streets on a nightly basis to look for dropped loose change.
Omega Ruby 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.
