Persian is a Normal Pokémon which evolves from Meowth. It is vulnerable to Fighting moves. Persian's strongest moveset is Scratch & Return and it has a Max CP of 1,689.


"Persian has six bold whiskers that give it a look of toughness. The whiskers sense air movements to determine what is in the Pokémon's surrounding vicinity. It becomes docile if grabbed by the whiskers."

PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Feint Attack + Night Slash or Foul Play and Return or Power Gem or Play Rough

Feint Attack, while it lacks STAB, has better energy generation than Scratch.

Night Slash requires an Elite TM, but its low energy cost allows it to pressure shields easily. Foul Play deals more damage but its higher energy cost makes it less desirable. Do note that pairing both Dark-type moves together is not advised due to the lack of coverage. Power Gem provides wide coverage with its Rock typing, but its damage output isn't very impressive for its moderately high energy cost. Play Rough can be useful for its Fairy-type coverage against Fighting-type opponents, while Return benefits from STAB to deal the most neutral damage, but both moves cost lots of energy to use. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

Persian's passable bulk doesn't make up for its mediocre and underwhelming moveset. Don't run Persian.

Ultra League: 1 / 5 

Much like in Great League, Persian isn't very good in Ultra.

Master League: 0 / 5

As it turns out, not reaching 2000 CP doesn't make Persian any more useful in Master League.
