Persian is a quadrupedal feline Pokémon. With the exception of its black-rimmed ears, its fur is light tan. It has a short snout, a little black nose, rounded ears, a pair of sharp teeth in its upper jaw, and three whiskers on each side of its face. Its strong whiskers are very sensitive to changes in air movement, allowing it to detect prey just by movement. A ruby diamond sits in the middle of its brow. It has a long tail with a unique curl towards the end. Persian communicates by body language, holding its tail high to indicate its readiness to pounce. It has three-toed paws with retractable claws and lengthy legs. Persian’s slender muscles also let it to walk silently.

Persian people mostly dwell in towns and cities. Although it is well-known for its beauty, it is incredibly difficult to nurture as a pet owing to its fickle and temperamental nature. It will scratch anybody, even its Trainer, without warning and has been recorded tearing its victim apart for no apparent reason. When Persian’s whiskers are tugged, it becomes momentarily tame for unexplained reasons. It is popular among the wealthy and is sought for by gem hunters. Persian’s delicate and graceful demeanor contrasts with Perrserker’s barbarian character, hence their relationship is one of mutual contempt. Pay Day was the trademark move of Generations II and III.

The body of an Alolan Persian is identical to that of a conventional Persian, however it has blue-gray fur. Its face is shaped differently, being bigger and more rounded, with prominent jowls. The residents of Alola adore its unusual visage, as well as its high-class softer-than-velvet fur coat. It normally has its eyes half-closed, and instead of a red forehead gem, it has a blue jewel. The gem, although distinct in appearance, is mainly constructed of the same material as the one on a standard Persian. It is defined as very clever and having an even higher view of itself in terms of conduct. It loves to utilize deception in combat, yet its arrogance leads it to misjudge opponents.
