Oranguru smart pokemon

Oranguru is a simian smart Pokemon resembling an orangutan. While most of its body is covered in white fur, its hands, feet, and snout are bare with its light gray skin visible.

The fur around its head and under its chin is longer and creates the impression of a long beard. It has a broad, flat nose and a black area around its eyes.

Underneath each eye is a yellow ring marking, which is encircle by a light blue ring marking. In the center of its forehead is a yellow marking shaped like a four-pointed star.

A cape of purple fur covers its back and is divided into many wavy clumps with strands of orange and light blue throughout.

17. Meowth


vMeowth is a small, feline smart Pokemon with cream-colored fur that turns brown at the tips of its hind paws and tail. Its ovoid head features four prominent whiskers, wide eyes with slit pupils, two pointed teeth in the upper jaw, and a gold koban coin embedded in its forehead.

Its ears are black with brown interiors and are flanked with an additional pair of long whiskers.

Meowth is a quadruped with the ability to walk on its hind legs; while the games always depict Meowth on two legs, the anime states that Meowth normally walks on all fours.

It can freely manipulate its claws, retracting them when it wants to move silently. The tip of its tail curls tightly.

16. Ditto


In its natural state, Ditto is a light purple or pink, amorphous smart Pokemon with vestigial facial features. The face consists of a simple mouth and beady eyes.

It also appears to have two pseudopods protruding from its body that it uses as arms. It is capable of transforming into an exact replica of any physical object, including its form and abilities.

However, if Ditto tries to transform into something based on memory, it may get some of the details wrong.

Each Ditto has its own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to transforming. The anime and the TCG have shown that occasionally Ditto cannot change its face. It will also be unable to remain in a transformed state if it starts laughing.

While its transformation ability allows it to get along with almost anything, it does not get along with its own kind. When two Ditto meet in the wild, they will attempt to transform into each other
