Meowth is a Normal-type Pokémon which debuted in Pocket Monsters Red and Green Versions (released internationally as Pokémon Red and Blue Versions). It appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in every Super Smash Bros. game except Super Smash Bros. Melee.

In Super Smash Bros., when released from a Poké Ball, Meowth attacks using Pay Day, by shooting coins in four directions. Starting with Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it instead shoots coins to the left or right, turning to the direction of the nearest opponent when necessary.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, there is a trophy of Meowth. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Meowth's trophy is obtained by clearing the "Jackpot Opportunity" event.

This... is Meowth's dream. Meowth strides all over the globe, scattering invitations to other Pokémon insisting they come to "Meowth's Party." At this wonderful party, guests are packed in like sardines as Meowth climbs up the stage with its faithful guitar. It strikes a chord, pauses, and then rocks their world!

A Scratch Cat Pokémon. It's one of the most famous Pokémon and very fond of things that glitter--the gold medallion on its head could be seen as an indicator of this infatuation. There are many Pokémon that resemble cats, but Meowth is the only one that can use Pay Day to receive coins at the end of battle. It evolves into Persian.

39: Pokémon Flag of USA.png Meowth is a Normal-type, Scratch Cat Pokémon who absolutely loves anything shiny. It's a creature of the night, and it's not unusual to discover a Meowth and a Murkrow fighting over their finds. Meowth's attack Pay Day can deal a ton of damage if an opponent gets caught in it. How purrfect!
Flag of Europe.png Meowth, a Normal-type Pokémon, loves round, shiny things. It runs around at night, hunting for little treasures and trinkets, but often ends up getting into fights with Murkrow about who'll get to keep them. Watch out for Meowth's Pay Day attack. If it catches you from behind, it can be purralysingly pawerful!

  • Meowth's trophy and its description in Super Smash Bros. Melee references Meowth's Party, one of the ending segments of the Pokémon anime in Japan, with a tech demo under the same name and with a similar premise later shown off for the Nintendo GameCube.
