'''DollarCent''' (Japanese: '''ダラー''' “Dollar”''Dollar'') is an [[Regional variant|Alolan]] {{p|Meowth}} that {{adv|Sun}} owns in [[Pokémon Adventures]] and his [[starter Pokémon]]. Cent originally belonged to [[Sun's great-grandfather]] prior to his death. He is level 4959 and his [[Characteristic]] is "somewhat stubborn."

In ''[[PASM07|The Final Match and a Surprising Finale!]]'', Cent was used to battle [[Gladion]] in the final round of the tournament. It went up against Gladion's {{TP|Gladion|Type: Null}}, but was easily defeated, forcing Sun to switch it out for Dollar.
 
In ''[[PASM08|Going Ashore and Neighboring Akala Island]]'', upon arriving on [[Akala Island]], Sun met [[Lana]], [[Kiawe]], and [[Mallow]], the [[Trial Captain]]s of Akala. Unsure if he was worthy of taking the Island Challenge, Kiawe challenged Sun to a battle. Sun agreed and used Cent to battle Kiawe's {{TP|Kiawe|Marowak}}. Cent was initially bewildered by Marowak's ability to manipulate its flames, but managed to land a hit after Sun told Cent to ignore the flames. The battle was called off after Kiawe decided to call his boss at the {{DL|Royal Avenue|Thrifty Megamart}} and apologize for leaving work without telling anyone.
 
In ''[[PASM10|Defeat and the Commander of the School of Fish]]'', Cent was used in Sun's first trial, which was to fight against the [[Totem Pokémon]] of [[Brooklet Hill]], a {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Wishiwashi|School Form}} {{p|Wishiwashi}}. Due to its immense size and strength, the Totem Wishiwashi was a tough opponent. Cent managed to defeat it after Sun instructed it to hit Quarter, the main Wishiwashi located in the left eye. After dodging its attacks, Cent closed in on Quarter's location and attacked it. The attack forced the Totem to separate back into its component Solo Form Wishiwashi, giving Sun the victory.
 
In [[PASM19]], Cent, along with the rest of Sun's team, helped rescue Moon from an attacking {{p|Xurkitree}} at [[Po Town]]. By combining their attacks, they managed to knock Moon from Xurkitree's grasp, though Xurkitree immediately retaliated by smacking them away onto a nearby car.
 
In [[PASM20]], Cent was used alongside {{FB|Salon Maiden|Anabel}}'s {{p|Mismagius}} to battle a {{p|Blacephalon}} that had been summoned to Po Town. Cent slashed at Blacephalon and appeared to decapitate it, only for the Fireworks Pokémon to reveal it is capable of safely detaching its head at will. Cent managed to distract Blacephalon long enough for Mismagius to stun it with {{m|Phantom Force}}, allowing Anabel to try and capture it, only to fail. Blacephalon attempted to counterattack with its {{m|Mind Blown}}, but was blown away by {{p|Tapu Bulu}}'s {{m|Whirlwind}}, saving everyone in the process.
 
In [[PASM29]], Cent was used alongside the rest of Sun and Moon's teams to assist [[Nebby|Lunala]] against {{p|Necrozma}}, but was stopped by [[Lusamine]]'s {{p|Naganadel}}.
 
<!--[[PASM33]]-->After returning to Alola, Sun finds Necrozma, who wants to absorb the light energy from the region. Sun sends out his team to attack, but Cent ignores the Prism Pokémon and walks away. Sun asks [[Lillie]] to take him to [[Memorial Hill]] and let him free, as now that they've failed to retake the island Cent feels no obligation to stick around with Sun.

Cent and Sun have never truly gotten along, nor has he gotten over [[Sun's great-grandfather]]'s death, explaining why he hasn't been able to evolve. He only followed Sun to collect the money to get his former owner's island back, but when that plan failed, Cent lost his sole reason to follow Sun around and obey his orders.
