Nanu's Persian (Japanese: クチナシのペルシアン Kuchinashi's Persian) is a Pokémon owned by Nanu in the anime, manga, and the games.

In the anime

Persian first appeared in Guiding an Awake!. It is larger than most Alolan Persian, with Rotom comparing it to a Totem Pokémon. It was the final Pokémon he used against Ash and his Lycanroc in Ash's grand trial battle and used a mixture of ranged and close quarters attacks to counter Lycanroc. However, after having its Z-Move countered, it ended up being defeated by the Wolf Pokémon's Accelerock, winning the battle for Ash.

Persian reappeared in Securing the Future!, where it joined the rest of Alola in showering Necrozma with Z-Power by using its Z-Move so it could return to its true form.

Description: Alolan Persian's Trainer strikes a series of poses to build up Z-Power. Alolan Persian then raises its head and a spiraling sphere of purple, red, and black energy forms above its head. Alolan Persian then throws the sphere at the opponent, and it expands into a miniature black hole. The opponent is sucked into the black hole, which shrinks to a much smaller size, causing it to explode.

Nanu's Persian appears in Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, battling in all of Nanu's battles.

Persian in Pokémon Adventures

Nanu's Persian first appeared in Pokémon Move Specialist Professor Kukui, battling against Olivia's Lycanroc. Lycanroc starts the battle quickly, striking the Classy Cat Pokémon with a powerful Rock Climb. Nanu has Persian counter with Nasty Plot, raising its special attack and then striking with Dark Pulse. The two Trainers then decide to go all-out and Olivia commands Lycanroc to use Continental Crush while Nanu commands Black Hole Eclipse. Hala jumps in the way of the two Pokémon and stops the battle before they destroy the stage.
