After school one day she happened to see a group of feral Meowth raiding the local deli. As they were escaping one was caught by the owner, and Micki managed to persuade him not to kill her and instead let her keep the rascally cat. (To know the rest of the story, keep reading).

Name/Species- Purrcilla: shiny Meowth
History- Before becoming Micki's first Pokemon, Purrcilla roamed the city streets as part of a group of wild Meowth who stole food to feed their greedy Persian leader. Due to her shiny coloration she was frequently given the cold shoulder by the rest of the group and was never really treated as their equal. Caught one day after the pack raided a delicatessen the owner was ready to put an end to her, but Micki who had happened by persuaded him to turn the Meowth over to her. Though relieved at escaping certain death, Purcilla wanted nothing to do with a human trainer and violently Fury Swiped Micki whenever she tried to interact with her.
The next day Purrcilla's old pack arrived to retrieve her, as the Persian was displeased that there was 1 less slave to provide for him. Wanting to leave Micki she willingly went back with them, with the girl deciding to secretly follow them hoping to get her Pokemon back. When both reached the Meowth hideout Micki witnessed the Persian giving poor Purrcilla a thorough beating for getting caught the day before, prompting Micki to come out of hiding and attempt to shield the weak little Meowth. Touched that a human was showing her more love and devotion than her own kind ever had Purrcilla entered a fit of fury and fought the Persian head on, awakening her ability Technician for the first time. Once the greedy cat Pokemon had been vanquished the rest of the group offered her the position of their new leader. Thinking she'd take it Micki turned to leave, only to feel a certain someone leap onto her back and start purring in her ear

Nature/Personality- Despite having a soft spot for her trainer, Purrcilla doesn't take kindly to strangers, be they Pokemon or people. She's especially prone to feelings of jealousy if she feels her place as Micki's "favorite" Pokemon is threatened, usually directed at ones who are exceptionally cute and/or powerful. Due to her past experiences with a sinister Persian overlord, Purrcilla has made a personal resolve to keep herself from evolving.
