I just wonder, if in that esisode with battle for who will be togepi`s trainer, Meowth wins the battle, can he become a pokemon trainer. Or in future, if he has any chance)

Good question...=/
In the first movie, one of the trainers said that's impossible to Mewtwo be a Pokémon Master.
Maybe the League open a exception...or not. .__.

Actually, in that episode Meowth was just attached to the little Togepi. I think he wanted it just to stare at its cuteness. Plus, wouldn't Jesse want to tear that thing out of his arms to take it for herself? And she could catch it with a Poke' Ball. Something Meowth doesn't have.
But when it comes to having Pokemon become trainers, I don't think it is possible. Unless you write something about that happening, like a fan-fic or something, it won’t happen.

I guess it's possible, but they'll never do it. Meowth is just a member of Team Rocket. Given Pokeballs and supplies, he could train Pokemon, but he a) chooses not to, b) doesn't have Pokeballs and supplies, and c) serves merely as an extra antagonist to make the anime a bit more humorous/entertaining. The makers of the show have no reason to make Meowth a Pokemon trainer, and if they did, it would probably only last for one episode as the main plot.

A fanfic is a story about a made-up event(s) or plot based on a franchise. The authors of fanfics are fans, obviously, and have no connection with the creators of the franchise the fic is based on. In this case, it would mean writing a story about Meowth deciding to become a trainer. The story would be unofficial and have no relation with Nintendo whatsoever, but it would be centered around Pokemon and involve characters used in Pokemon, such as Team Rocket and Ash & crew. This forum has a fanfiction section you can look at to get a better idea of it.

Like the one above said, This would make a great Fanfic. They should make a Pokemon Chronicle like that, do they even make Pkmn Chronicles anymore?

Mewtwo I guess.
He's the only one who really could ever have a chance at that.
Meowth needs better motor skills

Of course a Pokemon can be a Pokemon trainer! Pokemon are intelligent enough to understand human speech and follow commands, so they're of course smart enough to learn that pressing a button on a Pokeball opens it. Pokemon have proven through the show that they can learn through making mistakes, and have the same level of cognitive development as everyone else. That, and as far as I see, Pokemon can understand each others' "speech".

So long as they can command the respect of other Pokemon, and speak as a human does (buying anything at a Pokemart for instance would be hard with mere Pokespeak) there is theoretically nothing stopping a Pokemon effectively making itself a trainer. The problem a Pokemon has being a trainer, though, is the vulnerability to Pokeballs itself. xD
Oh and, I think only Pokemon with appenditures used for grabbing objects could really become trainers, since... well, think of a Gyarados trying to use a Pokeball or other trainer-related item. o_O;

But how Pokemon, who is under commands will feel himself? He automatically becomes i dont kno... a kind of slave of other Pokemon. If it s nirmal for humans-masters and Ppkemon. it cannton be so for Pokemon-Pokemon thing. But anyway, i wanted togepi being Meowth Pokemon!

It'll feel like it's gonna turn into some terrible world where the intelligent rule the dumb. Pokemon will be segregated based on intelligence and start bossing around creatures of its own kind!

Well, mewtwo was a trainer of a charizard, a blastoise, and a venusaur

Then again there are leaders of flocks of Pokemon, they are kind of like trainers.

I think for starters, the pokemon has to be stronger than the one it wants to obey.
