Operating out of Catallia City 100 years ago, the Black Arachnid was a clever, quick, and agile thief who employed a Meowth to help him pick locks. The two stole many priceless treasures and always escaped by using Pay Day to cause a distraction long enough to scare away the police.
| The Black Arachnid's Meowth was very important to his criminal actions. The Scratch Cat Pokémon helped its Trainer pick locks with its sharp nails, and used Pay Day to cause distractions long enough to scare away the police.
Meowth's only known move is Pay Day.
- In A Lean Mean Team Rocket Machine, Jessie, James, and Meowth, wore disguises similar to The Black Arachnid's, and called themselves The Black Arachnid II.
