Purrloin (Japanese: チョロネコ Choroneko) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.


Purrloin looks similar to Glameow from Generation IV. However, its evolution, Liepard, looks nothing like Purugly. Purrloin looks like a purple cat, with long pink eyelids that stretch up to the edge of its ears. It also has white patches on its fur.


Purrloin evolves into Liepard at level 20.

  • Purrloin was shown on September 6, 2010 in a trailer for the Pokémon BW Special due for airing September 16. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • The last part of its Japanese name, neko, is fitting because neko is the Japanese word for cat.
  • Purrloin is based on "purloin," a term used to describe a theft of any kind.
  • Despite being based on a cat, neither Purrloin or its evolution are able to learn Bite or Crunch.
  • Purrloin is one of only nine pure dark types. The others are Umbreon, Poochyena, Mightyena, Darkrai, Liepard, Zorua and Zoroark.
  • In Pokemon BW046, Purrloin was seen standing and walking on its back legs, and is one of the few feline pokemon to do so along with Meowth.
  • In BW046, it was shown that Cilan was afraid of Purrloin since the day a Purrloin did something horrible.
