Meowstic

Meowstic is a Psychic type Pokémon introduced in Generation 6. It is known as the Constraint Pokémon.

Meowstic is based on a cat. The organs within Meowstic's ears possess a formidable psychic power, so it usually keeps them clamped shut. But when Meowstic is threatened, it will lift its ears and release this power.

Meowstic has different forms depending on its gender. The male is mainly blue and learns more defensive moves; the female is mainly white and learns more attacking moves.

Pokédex entries

Meowstic

X
Omega Ruby
When in danger, it raises its ears and releases enough psychic power to grind a 10-ton truck into dust.
Y
Alpha Sapphire
The eyeball patterns on the interior of its ears emit psychic energy. It keeps the patterns tightly covered because that power is too immense.

Male

Sword Revealing the eyelike patterns on the insides of its ears will unleash its psychic powers. It normally keeps the patterns hidden, however.
Shield The defensive instinct of the males is strong. It’s when they’re protecting themselves or their partners that they unleash their full power.

Female

Sword Females are a bit more selfish and aggressive than males. If they don’t get what they want, they will torment you with their psychic abilities.
Shield If it doesn’t hold back when it unleashes its psychic power, it can tear apart a tanker. Its unfriendliness is part of its charm.
