Meowth

Inspired by

Meowth (Kanto)

Meowth is a small, feline Pokémon with cream-colored fur that turns brown at the tips of its hind paws and tail. Its ovoid head features four prominent whiskers, wide eyes with slit pupils, two pointed teeth in the upper jaw, and a gold koban coin embedded in its forehead. Meowth is a quadruped with the ability to walk on its hind legs; while the games always depict Meowth on two legs, the anime states that Meowth normally walks on all fours. It can freely manipulate its claws, retracting them when it wants to move silently. The tip of its tail curls tightly.

Meowth is attracted to round and shiny objects and has the unique ability to produce coins using Pay Day. Being nocturnal, it is known to wander about city streets at night and pick up anything that sparkles, including loose change. Upon finding a sparkling object, its eyes will glitter and the coin on its forehead will shine brightly. It shares this intrigue with Murkrow, with whom it often fights with for objects and prey. Meowth is a playful but fickle Pokémon with the capacity for human-like intelligence. Meowth tends to live in urban areas.

After a bit of searching I found two variants for Katsu Curry; a Japanese recipe and a Hawaiian recipe. This inspired me to create recipes for Meowth, a Pokemon that has two variants; Kanto Meowth and Alola Meowth. The Kanto Meowth and Persian is a white cat with a slender appearance, where as the Alolan variant is blue with rounder features. The Alolan Meowth is also a dark type, compared to the Kantonian Normal type. These two variants are key because Kanto is inspired by a region in Japan, and Alola is inspired by the Hawaiian islands.

UPDATE! Since there is now a Galarian Meowth too, I will eventually add a British alternative for the new Meowth variant.
