Pershie first appeared in That's Why the Litten is a Scamp! where it stole food from Litten. It was later seen confronting Litten but was stopped by Ash and Pikachu. It reappeared later for revenge only to be seen off.
It reappeared in Dummy, You Shrunk the Kids!, where it chased Ash, Lillie, and Sophocles after they had been shrunk by Faba's latest invention. Later, Mallow's Tsareena intervened and shaved off some of Pershie's fur.
In SM099, Pershie was sitting outside a store while its Trainer tried on several pieces of jewelry. It soon spotted an Eevee and gave chase. Lana's Popplio went on to save Eevee using its Aqua Jet and the trail of water led Pershie to slip. While Pershie saw Popplio and Eevee fall into a canal, it abandoned the pursuit after its Trainer called it back.
Personality and characteristics
Pershie appears to live a life of luxury and is treated more like a pet by its Trainer. However, it is characteristically cruel and manipulative. It enjoys tormenting its victims and is a non-relenting pursuer. It uses its sheer size and sharp claws to intimidate opponents. Despite its manner, it will quickly flee when injured in battle.
Its cunning behavior was showcased in SM099, where it pretended to be friendly in order to lure Eevee to come closer.
