Glameow is a fickle cat-like Pokémon that was introduced in the fourth generation games. Its evolved form is Purugly.



Glameow is well known for its fickle nature. It claws if displeased and purrs when it feels affectionate. When Glameow is happy, it also moves its tail beautifully, so it resembles a dancing ribbon. Glameow can use its sharp glare to put foes into a mild hypnotic state. Glameow also hide their spiteful tendencies to hook their claws into the noses of their trainers when they are not fed.

It evolves into Purugly at Level 38.


Mainstream Games

In Pokémon: Pearl Version, Glameow was found somewhat commonly at Routes 218 and 222.
