Persian's Detailed Stats

Below you'll find a more detailed table containing Persian's calculated stats, which are the stats that you actually see displayed in game. These are affected by a variety of things, such as level, Effort Values (EVs), Individual Values (IVs), and Persian's Nature.

By default, the stats you see in the table below show four different possibilities, all assuming Persian is level 100: its stats with 0 EVs, 252+ (max) EVs, 0 IVs, and 31 (max) IVs. Nature is not shown by default, so its maximum is 10% higher than shown here, and minium 10% lower.

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Getting this prideful Pokémon to warm up to you takes a lot of effort, and it will claw at you the moment it gets annoyed.

Generation 7 Pokédex Entries

Sun
It has a violent temperament. It will attack anything that looks it in the eye. Its sharp claws inflict deep wounds.

Although the jewel on its forehead appears to be a different color than those of Alolan Persian, it's mostly made of the same material.

Y
Its lithe muscles allow it to walk without making a sound. It attacks in an instant.
