PokeMeow is a new(ish) Discord Pokemon game bot, like the legendary Pokecord (RIP) and the neat but ever-buggy MewBot. Many Pokemon Fans are looking for new Discord bots to play Pokemon stuff, and it seems PokeMeow is one of the most popular options. These games are always a little confusing to start with, so I thought I’d make a guide just like those other two bots!
This guide is a work in progress (the wiki is down and aside from the bot itself, there’s not much info out there). If I’m missing anything important, please comment and let me know! Feel free to share information, strategies, tips, or ask questions. The guide will be expanded as I figure things out.
You can support me and my guides monthly on Patreon (and score some rewards like cute cat pictures)! The more I earn the more time I can spend on improving guides like this. My PayPal is a thing too if you can’t do monthly subscriptions.
2020-07-30: Guide published! Note according to the official Discord server, the rate limits were greatly improved on PokeMeow and Pokemon can now spawn much faster.

Quickstart Guide to PokeMeow
To play the game either add PokeMeow to your server, or join the PokeMeow official server. The official server is very active (for better and worse) and has some FAQ channels with info on the game as well as official announcements. Adding it to your own server, or joining a smaller server with the bot already in it, can be a quieter way to enjoy the game without the usual Big Discord Server Woes.
Once you’re in a server/channel that runs PokeMeow, type ;pokemon to start playing. Your progress is saved across servers, it’s all tied to your discord account. Type ;help for the basic ingame help.
Unlike PokeCord you don’t talk and wait for spawns; spawns are forced with the ;p command. But it’s not quite as free as it sounds, since you instead need to use Pokeballs to catch pokemon. You can get more balls by buying them and/or by voting to get lootboxes which contain credits and Pokeballs.
