Moves

Can someone explain how we know Meowth's moves? Is it related to this "Scratch Cat Girl" piece of dialogue(?) that I haven't seen yet? Is a battle interface visible during the Kukui battle during the ending sequence? I just ask because it seems suspicious to me that these moves were suddenly added today (among other things that have been reverted); if the moves are from USUM I would've thought they'd have been added back in November when the game came out.

They are visible during a post-game event. Once you've become Champion, you can interact with Mom's Meowth, and a woman from the neighborhood with an Alolan Meowth will come visiting your home. You will then engage her in a mock battle using Mom's Meowth. The "battle" takes place in the overworld and always goes the same way: first, the Alolan Meowth uses Fake Out to flinch Mom's Meowth, and on the second turn, no matter which move you choose, Mom's Meowth gets an Affection-assisted critical hit, winning the battle. You can find this event on YouTube. --FinnishPokéFan92 (talk) 07:22, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thank you! Perhaps something about this event should be mentioned on the page? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 08:17, 13 February 2018 (UTC)
