Meowth (Team Rocket)

28 bytes added, 20 October
* {{p|Sunflora}} is Meowth's most frequently used Pokémon disguise in the {{pkmn|anime}}, using the disguise seven times.
* There is some inconsistency as to whether or not Meowth hates water. In ''[[Snow Way Out!]]'', he wanted a hot spring, and in ''[[EP050|Who Gets to Keep Togepi?]]'', he is seen taking a bath with the Egg that will hatch into {{TP|Misty|Togepi}}. Meowth has suggested that he and his teammates go into the water in ''[[EP055|Pokémon Paparazzi]]'' and again in ''[[EP085|Fit to be Tide]]'', while in episodes like ''[[BW129|The Pirates of Decolore!]]'', he prominently remains swimming in the sea without showing any displeasure. However, in ''[[EP016|Pokémon Shipwreck]]'', ''[[EP079|Friend and Foe Alike]]'' and ''[[HS09|Big Meowth, Little Dreams (Part 1)]]'', he hates water, as he is a cat.
* Meowth is the only known Pokémon to have been a [[Gym Leader]], briefly sharing the title with Jessie and James in ''[[EP063|The Battle of the Badge]]'' after they had to fill in for {{an|Giovanni}}.
* In the Japanese version, Meowth will still say at least part of his name as a verbal tic, a common trait in anime. The same occurs in the early episodes of the dub, but it is far less frequent, and eventually scrapped altogether except when reciting [[Team Rocket Motto|the {{motto]]}}.
* For [[DP022]], [[Professor Oak's Big Pokémon Encyclopedia]] is about Meowth. He writes this {{wp|senryū}} about it: 「ピカチュウに いつかはかちたい ニャースかな」 ''"Wanting to beat Pikachu someday, is that {{tt|Nyarth|Meowth}}?"''.
