Meowth Guide

The Generation 1 normal-type is available as the player or partner through the main game.

Usually, Meowth is chosen if the personality result is either Quirky (for males) in nature.

It has normal mobility, meaning it cannot traverse through water, lava and cloud tiles and walls without the assistance of a mobility-enhancing item or a certain IQ skill.

As Meowth is a normal type, it is weak to fighting types, so you should pair it with a flying type. Unfortunately, there are no flying type starters - the closest is Torchic, who doesn't learn Peck until later in the game.

 

How To Get Meowth

Meowth can be chosen at the start of the game as either the player or partner.

Meowth can be recruited exclusively at Western Cave with a recruit rate of 12%.

You will come across a Lv29 Mewoth with a rarity of:

  • 3rd floor (13.04%)
  • 4th-5th floor (20%)
  • 6th floor (15.79%)

Evolving Meowth

Evolution does not play a massive part in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, so it is perfectly ok to keep Meowth as he is.

Although stats do not increase from evolution, moves can vary once it evolves into Persian.

If you do wish to evolve Meowth, you will need to finish the main story and enter the Luminous Cave - be sure to check our evolution guide for more details.
