Main article: Meowth (Team Rocket)

Several different Meowth appeared over the Pokémon anime, but the most well-known Meowth featured in the show is a member of Team Rocket. He is unlike ordinary Meowth in that he can speak human language and walks on two legs instead of four. Alongside fellow Team Rocket members Jessie and James, he engages in various evil schemes, usually attempting to steal Ash Ketchum's Pikachu, but never succeeding.

Other Meowth that appeared in the anime include Meowzie, a female Meowth that Team Rocket's Meowth fell in love with during his days as a stray Pokémon in the streets of Hollywood, and "Meowth in Boots", a Meowth belonging to Tyson, a trainer from Hoenn.
