[[Category:{{{type1}}}-type Pokémon|{{{ndex}}}]] Linoone (Japanese: マッスグマ Massuguma) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Zigzagoon starting at level 20.

Biology

Physiology

Linoone are little weasel/badger-like creatures. Their long bodies are like a weasel's, and their sharp elongated claws are like a badger's. They also have small sharp teeth that are efficiently used with their claws in hunting. There is an arrow on it head as well, referencing its straight movement.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Since Linoone have a keen sense of smell, they are able to locate and Pickup items while its trainer walks around.

When the Generation IV games were introduced, Linoone was given another ability. Due to the fact that it loves berries more than almost anything else, it is a complete glutton when it comes to them.

Behavior

Linoone are incredibly fast, but they aren't the best at cornering, so they typically run in a straight line. Linoone have an attraction to anything round, and will grab any orb-shaped object they see if given the chance. They often carry a snatched object in their expandable cheek pouches and deposit it in any of a number of secret stashes they keep on their territory.

Habitat

Linoone tend to live in forests and grasslands, similar to actual racoons.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Linoone is a carnivore, eating both land-dwelling and aquatic prey.

In Gettin' Twiggy With It!, an injured Linoone is nursed back to health.

A Linoone appeared in Camping It Up!.

Ruby Linoone always runs full speed and only in straight lines. If facing an obstacle, it makes a right-angle turn to evade it. This Pokémon is very challenged by gently curving roads.
Sapphire When hunting, Linoone will make a beeline straight for the prey at a full run. While this Pokémon is capable of topping 60 mph, it has to come to a screeching halt before it can turn.
Emerald It is exceedingly fast if it only has to run in a straight line. When it spots pond-dwelling prey underwater, it quickly leaps in and catches it with its sharp claws.
FireRed When running in a straight line, it can top 60 miles per hour. However, it has a tough time with curved roads.
LeafGreen When running in a straight line, it can top 60 miles per hour. However, it has a tough time with curved roads.

Diamond It charges prey at speeds over 60 mph. However, because it can only run straight, it often fails.

Trivia

  • Linoone's sprite has changed very little between Generation III and IV.
  • Linoone and Ambipom are the only evolved Pokémon that have Pickup.

Origin

Linoone may be based on a badger or a ferret.

Name origin

Linoone's name may be a combination of line, referring to its sleek appearance, and raccoon. It could also be referring to its ability to only run in straight lines. Its Japanese name may be a combination of mass, referring to its growth since evolving, and 熊/グマ guma, and まっすぐ massugu, meaning straight, as in a line.
