Skitty (Japanese: エネコ Eneco) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Delcatty when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Skitty is a pink, feline Pokémon with a stumpy body and four short legs. On its face is a cream-colored, crescent-shaped marking. It has slit-like eyes and tufted ears with purple interiors. Its slender tail has a bulky pink section at the end, terminated by three pin-like structures with yellow ball-like tips. In battle, its tail puffs out and it threatens opponents with a sharp growl.

It is fascinated by moving objects and chases them. It is known to chase its own tail and become dizzy from it. Although it can be difficult to earn its trust, it is very popular due to its adorable looks and behavior. It can use the moves of other Pokémon through the use of Assist, its former signature move. It lives in holes in trees in tropical and temperate forests.
