Why is Glameow next to impossible to aim a ball at?

Is this a reference to something in the main series?

I think its hitbox is accidentally enormous. The balls hit way sooner than they should, and on the map it seems to also be unusually difficult to tap another pokemon near a Glameow, but I might be imagining that

It’s that springy tail.

It does seem a lot closer to the screen than it should. Good thing its super easy to catch

I just experienced this with Hippopotas. Streak broken!

Srsly? I often need to Ultra+ Razz or even GRZ this shit if i have quest required them to catch. Truly hate this pokemon.
