Flavor Text
SunIt lies around all day, becoming active near dusk. At night, it wanders the city in search of loose change.
MoonIt loves shiny things. It often fights with Murkrow over prey they’re both trying to catch.
Ultra SunWhen visiting a junkyard, you may catch sight of it having an intense fight with Murkrow over shiny objects.
Ultra MoonIt loves coins, so if you give it one, you can make friends with Meowth easily. But it’s fickle, so you can’t count on that friendship lasting.
SunThis Pokémon was not originally found in Alola. Human actions caused a surge in their numbers, and they went feral. They’re prideful and crafty.
MoonWhen its delicate pride is wounded, or when the gold coin on its forehead is dirtied, it flies into a hysterical rage.
Ultra SunIt’s impulsive, selfish, and fickle. It’s very popular with some Trainers who like giving it the attention it needs.
Ultra MoonA royal house that flourished in the distant past brought it here from another region. Meowth is both selfish and prideful.
