Pokemon logic



is the most famous talking Pokémon, and the one that makes the most appearances. His clone in Mewtwo Strikes Back and Mewtwo Returns, however, cannot speak, the reason being Meowth wasn’t born knowing how to speak human language: he learned how to speak human language.

In Island of the Giant Pokémon, Ash’s and Team Rocket’s Pokémon can speak due to most of the episode focusing at them (although this is done through subtitles in the Japanese version and several of the dub versions). This prevents the difficulty of understanding Pokémon saying only the syllables of their names.

A Tentacruel

in the episode Tentacool and Tentacruel speaks through Meowth via telepathy.

A Gastly

in The Ghost of Maiden’s Peak has the ability to talk.

A Lapras

in Holiday Hi-Jynx has the ability to talk telepathically.
Mewtwo can talk via telepathy.

The Gastly

and Haunter in the episode A Shipful of Shivers speak through Meowth via telepathy.

The Lugia

in The Power of One also speaks via telepathy.

A Slowking

in The Power of One can also talk without telepathy.
Presumably this is because of its wisdom.


can talk in Spell of the Unown. However, this Pokémon is the embodiment of Molly’s wishes, so therefore it is not currently known if
