Skitty are pink feline Pokémon with a stumpy body, short legs, a large head and slender tail with a bulky pink section at the end, terminated by three pin-like shapes. On Skitty's face is a cream-colored, crescent-shaped marking. Skitty have slit-like eyes and tufted ears with purple interiors. Because of these features, they are regarded as highly cute Pokémon. Its height is 2'00" and weight is 24.3 lbs.
Skitty, along with Glameow, Purrloin, and their evolutions, is able to wield the Assist attack, which allows Skitty to use a random attack known by any other Pokémon in its Trainer's team. Unlike other cat-like Pokémon like Meowth or Glameow, Skitty doesn't scratch or bite; instead, it slaps with its tail, which allows Skitty to pull off a relatively powerful Double Slap or Wake-Up Slap. Like most Normal-type Pokémon, Skitty can learn many elemental attacks.
Skitty are fascinated by and will chase anything that moves (a personality trait that is found in "real-world" kittens). Skitty will even chase its own tail. It may also make its tail puff out in battle, along with threatening its foes with a sharp growl. It is said to be difficult to earn its trust.
Skitty can be found living in holes in trees in forests.
