Prior to the series

Purrloin's history prior to being taken to the Lumiose City's Trainer Academy is unknown. The only thing that is known that something in the past happened which caused him to have a nasty and somewhat mean temper and be hateful towards humans. The only human he could actually stand is Caline Césaire, one of the staff members and a friend of Ailey Walker.

When Scarlett was ten, she and many of the other children, including her best friend Bailey Ketchum, were brought to one of the teachers, Professor Diana Primrose, one of the professors at the school, to let the trainers to find and bond with their first Pokémon. In the past, many trainers had tired to get Purrloin but he would always escape or hit them

But when Scarlett approached him, he felt something different about the girl. After a stare down with Scarlett, Purrloin accepted Scarlett as his new trainer.

He went with Scarlett back to her house where the two began to bond together...and have Scarlett deal with his temper.

Personality and characteristics

Purrloin is very different from his normal species. He doesn't like doing tricks on other people or Pokémon. Purrloin has a temper but since bonding with Scarlett his temper has gone down quite a bit but still has his temper. He is somewhat mean at times and can get a little nasty, but all in all, he means good. He is afraid of letting anyone in afraid that they will hurt him since that happened to him in the past.
