That The Pokémon world is very similar to ours, were it not for the animals that are replaced with these creatures of various kinds instead. Each of them is a different size and shape, with their differences going even further thanks to the types and attacks they can learn and use in battle.

They all also have different verses related to their name. However, none of them can speak, but as shown in the Pokémon anime, there are those who can learn. The most important exponent is undoubtedly Meowth, the mascot of Team Rocket, who always accompanies Jessie and James on various criminal missions. How come Meowth can talk??

From the very beginning of the anime, Meowth was shown speaking, but it wasn't until later that there was an explanation as to why. In Season 2 Episode 16, Meowth reveals that when he was a young man, he encountered a female Meowth and lost his mind for her, but without being reciprocated because she is a Pokemon of a rich and Meowth didn't impress her because he wasn't human.

And so, Meowth decided to learn to walk on two legs by observing people and also using diction classes at a dance school. Over time, little by little, Meowth has learned to speak, even if this didn't help defeat the Pokemon he fell in love with, which even rejected him by calling him a monster. A story that certainly doesn't have a happy ending as Meowth then joined Team Rocket because Rocket was the first word he learned.

This is over while Ash is competing in the Pokémon Championship in the present. And don't miss out on this Pokémon diorama.
