Pokémon Picture Details

Tyson's Meowth has the most personality out of Tyson's Pokémon. Tyson rescued Meowth after it was kicked out of it's pack for being too weak after a battle with a Persian. Due to this, Meowth refuses to evolve into Persian and hones its attacks so that it can be as strong as it can be. Dressed in a semi-cowboy costume, it really is sure of itself, however sometimes it goes overboard and Tyson needs to hold it back.
