tangentially related: it bugs me in sun/moon that the non-alolan meowths stand on their hind legs! the tv show's meowth had to teach himself how to do that :o did it catch on, are meowth millenials all doing it nowadays?

meowth's sprites have always depicted them on their hind legs, though the original games had them in far more catlike poses than later ones

somehow I never fully noticed/it never bothered me until they were 3d models. Maybe because the sprites are sort of frozen in time so I was able to rationalize it as the kitty standing on their hind legs for just a sec ¯_(ツ)_/¯

looking at the sprites on bulbapedia I think at the start it was meant to be more "can standing on hind legs for a second" but it looks like they forgot that around generation IV
