Meowth is a character featured in the Pokémon anime. He is a specimen of the Pokémon of the same name who is a member of Team Rocket, specifically working as part of a trio with teammates Jessie and James. He and his two human companions travel around, following the trails of Ash Ketchum and fruitlessly trying to steal his Pikachu. Team Rocket's Meowth is unlike nearly all other Pokémon in that he walks on two legs and speaks like a human. However, due to him having these unusual traits, he never learned any of his species' attacks, and as such, does not often participate in Pokémon battles. Meowth aims to please Giovanni, to the point that, for much of the episodes set in Hoenn and Sinnoh, he frequently had bizarre daydreams about what mundane things the boss could do with the Pokémon they're trying to steal.
