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!
Feel free to share information, strategies, tips, or ask questions in the comments! PokeMeow is pretty complicated so I’ve gone in depth on as many features as I can to help you use it most effectively.

PokeMeow Quickstart Guide
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 PokeMeow 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 PokeMeow 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.
Use ;checklist often to check the daily tasks that will help you get free items like Pokeballs.
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.
A mistake I see new players make is ignoring almost all of their spawns, presumably trying to save up Pokeballs. Make sure to take your ;quest, ;hunt, and open your ;lootboxes from ;votes, and you’ll have plenty of Pokeballs. You’re actually missing out on the primary source of income if you don’t catch every pokemon you encounter.
