Pokémon is one of the most popular franchises in pop culture, and for many of us who grew up in the '90s, it's a part of our childhood. Pokémon originated as a video game but quickly expanded into a card game, TV show, movies, and comics. You won't have to look hard to find Pokémon merch at your local big-box store, even decades after its debut.

The name Pokémon comes from the original Japanese title of the franchise, "Pocket Monsters". While we wouldn't be so quick to call these adorable creatures monsters, they do indeed fit in a Pokéball carried in a Pokémon trainer's holster. The game's objective is to catch wild Pokémon and battle other Pokémon along the way. 

Given the popularity of the Pokémon franchise, it's no surprise you're considering a Pokémon cat name for your fur-baby. We’ll explore some of the more well-known Pokémon character names in pop culture.

Pokémon Cat Name Considerations

There are many things to consider when choosing a Pokémon cat name for your fur-baby. First, consider your cat’s likes and dislikes.

 If your cat likes bathtime, you may want to choose a water-type Pokémon name like Squirtle. Cats who enjoy catching bugs may be well-suited for a bug-type name like Paras.

Looks and personality are other things to consider when choosing a Pokémon cat name. A cat with Siamese-type markings may be a good fit for the name Persian, a cat-like Pokémon.

Jigglypuff could be befitting for a plump catto, whereas Mew might be good for talkative felines. You might choose a psychic-type Pokémon name like Abra for very clever cats, or a grass-type name like Bellsprout for kitties that like eating grass.

With nearly 1,000 Pokémon, there’s definitely no shortage of names to choose from! So without further ado, here are our top 60 male and female Pokémon-inspired cat names.
