KrazyShipping, the belief in romantic love between Meowth and Pikachu, was named for Krazy Kat, a comic strip from the early 20th century about a cat who was in love with a mouse, while the mouse hated the cat.

KrazyShipping is one of the more popular pairings involving actual Pokémon. Though Meowth, along with Jessie and James, is actively trying to capture Pikachu for Giovanni, there have been a few hints that he may harbour secret feelings for Pikachu. For example, in the episode Bound for Trouble, Meowth and Pikachu are handcuffed together and lost by themselves. While Pikachu takes many opportunities to harass Meowth, Meowth actually tries to be nice to Pikachu.

In the episode Island of the Giant Pokémon, both Jessie and James's Pokémon, as well as Ash's Pokémon, get separated from their Trainers and must find their way back. Although Meowth tries to harass everyone at first, when he gets tied up, Pikachu unties him. Afterward, Meowth tries to be nice to everyone else.

In the episode A Scare to Remember, Pikachu gets amnesia and is actually caught by the Rocket trio. Although Meowth does trick Pikachu into thinking it was raised by Team Rocket, throughout the episode, Meowth admits he feels guilty about tricking Pikachu.

In the episode Hoenn Alone!, when Meowth stands up for Pikachu, Pikachu smiles at Meowth, but falls over when Pikachu realizes he was talking about Team Rocket instead of Ash.

In the Polka O Dolka ending, Meowth and Pikachu are seen double dancing together.

Alternate Names

  • Both Pokémon have, at one point, refused to evolve.
  • They both have a rivalry with their evolutionary forms.
