Every cat Pokemon on the Pokedex listed - Tech Preview

In the world of Pokemon, there are many creatures of different shapes and sizes. Cat lovers can find a lot of cute cat-like Pokemon. Trainers can choose from various cat Pokemon such as Litten, Meowth, and Purrloin throughout the series.

Each Pokemon is special and their designs come from different things like fantasy creatures and objects. For example, there’s a Pokemon that looks like an ice-cream called Vanillite, and the famous Fire-type Charizard. Real animals also inspire many Pokemon designs, and there are quite a few cat-like creatures in Pokemon.

The Pokemon called Meowth, which looks like a cat, was first seen in the early Pokemon games Red and Blue. As the years went by, fans could catch more and more cat-like Pokemon. One of them is Sprigatito, a cute Grass-type Pokemon, which is one of the starters in the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet games.
