Johanna's Glameow (Japanese: アヤコのニャルマー Ayako's Nyarmar) is a Pokémon owned by Johanna.


Glameow and Johanna

Glameow first appeared in Following A Maiden's Voyage! and appears to be the family's pet. However, when Johanna was younger, Glameow was used in many Pokémon Contests, having helped her to win the Grand Festival and become a Top Coordinator. It is seen in many of the pictures at Dawn's house competing in Contests alongside Johanna and accepting Contest trophies. It is also seen with Johanna when she watches Dawn compete in Contests.

Johanna has a specific Poffin recipe for Glameow which Dawn has assisted her in making, mentioned in Oh Do You Know The Poffin Plan!. Dawn, however, did not realize that this recipe was only made with Glameow in mind, which tasted horrible to her first three Pokémon. Meowth, on the other hand, found it to be delicious.

In a flashback in Battling the Generation Gap!, Glameow was revealed to have lost a battle against Lila's Delcatty by points.

Glameow and Umbreon

In Strategy Begins at Home!, Glameow battled alongside Umbreon against Dawn's Piplup and Pachirisu in a two-on-two Contest Battle. Johanna's Pokémon eventually won the match.

In Challenging a Towering Figure!, Glameow and Umbreon briefly performed at the beginning of the Festival Battle Challenge, much to the delight of the attendees.

In Teaching the Student Teacher!, Glameow assisted its owner with teaching at a Trainer's School.

Glameow appeared alongside Johanna during the ending credits of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

In DPS01, Glameow battled Dawn's Piplup and Cyndaquil alongside Umbreon. It was able to do some dazzling combinations with Umbreon, but when Piplup and Cyndaquil unleashed their Whirlpool-Flame Wheel combination, the battle was stopped due to them fighting.

Personality and characteristics

From Glameow's debut in Following A Maiden's Voyage!, it showed many characteristics of a common house cat, appearing quite lazy and docile. It appeared to like Dawn, its Trainer's daughter, even watching her as she rode off on her journey.

Later in Strategy Begins at Home!, Glameow, along with Johanna's Umbreon, acted very distant with Dawn's Piplup, not accepting the new member of its family. Johanna later mentioned that it and Umbreon are usually very picky eaters, while they ate the food that Brock made. This reflects their initial response to meeting Piplup, not being too accepting of the new.
