Description: A large, cream colored cat with black ears, Persian is roughly the size of a small puma. It has red eyes with vertical slit pupils, a red jewel at the center of its forehead, and three large whiskers on either side of its face. These whiskers are extremely sensitive and allow Persian to detect even the slightest movement nearby. It communicates more with body language than any sound, relying on its tail to convey messages. Persian are lithe and silent, making them extremely adept at hunting.

Persian are very difficult to raise, even by the most skilled of Pokémon trainers. They are fickle and temperamental. Persian will scratch anyone, entirely unprovoked, and can be viscious and cruel with their prey. Although, when pulled by the whiskers, Persian become temporarily docile.

In Alolan, Persians have grey fur and larger, rounded faces. Their forehead jewels are blue and their whiskers curled. Alolan Persians think very highly of themselves, often underestimating their opponents. They rely on underhanded tactics in battle, but they remain popular for their luxurious, soft fur.
