Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Seeing as Meowth used to be Giovanni's favorite and now has a Persian, he must favor cat-like Pokémon.
  • Giovanni is most likely a reference to a mob boss, he is seen in a suit often, has a clean hair cut, and specifically Persian.
  • Although Persian is named after the breed of cat, it doesn't share similarities with the breed of the same name. Its looks is largely based on a Siamese cat.
  • In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, Persian is Pokémon Square's bank owner but later replaced by Duskull in future Mystery Dungeon titles.
