I'd go as far as to count Entei and Raikou as cats, to me their clearly based off a lion and tiger respectively.


Even though they look a little cat-like, they are known as part of the 3 Legendary Beasts or Dogs. The only one that resembles a cat at all is really Raikou, which looks like a Saber Tooth but I'm fairly certain that's not it's real basis.

Entei's a Chinese Liondog. Kinda like Arcanine, but an important one. But you guys are getting into semantics over this and letting Zangoose get a pass due to a superliteral translation?

Lion dogs are more dog than lion though, at least appearance wise(they're very artistic lions which happen to look nothing like lions)

Also, Zangoose is a clearly a cat that behaves like a mongoose, but it is a cat.

Mewtwo and mew count as well


Just because Mew has a vaguely feline face (and I mean REALLY vaguely) and their names sound like the sound a cat makes, does not make them cats.

Mewtwo especially is not a cat.


It's not vaguely anything

They are straight up based off of cats. Mewtwo is a genetically modified super powered clone, so forgive it if it doesn't lay around licking his butt or look exactly like your cat at home. but it is most definitely a cat

The first games had TERRIBLE sprites, that sprite means nothing. And an Embryo cat is still a cat.
