Zangoose (Japanese: ザングース Zangoose) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

It is well known for its ongoing feud against Seviper.

Contents

Biology

Zangoose is a bipedal Pokémon resembling a cross between a mongoose and cat. Although it is classified as a bipedal Pokémon, it usually walks on all fours. Its fur is mostly white with deep red, scar-like markings on the face, chest, and forepaws. It has two long, black claws on its forepaws, and pink paw pads on its hind feet. It has pink eyes, long ears, and a small red nose. When it opens its mouth, two sharp fangs can be seen on its upper jaw. There are small tufts of white fur on its shoulders, and it has a large, fluffy tail.

Zangoose is bitter enemies with Seviper, which it has battled against for many generations. Its claws are its best weapons, and can be used for its former signature move, Crush Claw. It lives in grassy areas.

Major appearances

Zangoose first appeared in ZigZag Zangoose under the control of Nicholai. It battled against Ash and his Treecko, but suddenly Zangoose noticed Jessie's Seviper and started to battle it. Ash and his friends and even Team Rocket did not know what was going on, but it was Zangoose and Seviper's that got the two fighting, as these Pokémon have a natural rivalry. They were suddenly knocked into a river and Seviper then used Poison Tail, knocking Zangoose unconscious. Brock nursed Zangoose back to health with herbal medicine and left it to rest. Later Seviper appeared again and was ready to battle and after a long and fierce battle, Zangoose finally knocked out the Fang Snake Pokémon with a Crush Claw.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness, Zangoose was a member of Team Razor Wind, along with Scyther and Sandslash. The trio of clawed Pokémon were first seen being blasted out of the Wigglytuff Guild. Team Razor Wind overheard that Team Poképals were assigned with the task of traveling to the Labyrinth Cave to get a Gabite Scale for an ailing Shinx, and decided to attempt beating Team Poképals. Unfortunately for Team Razor Wind, Gabite beat them up. It reappeared alongside its team in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness.

In Glory Blaze, it is discovered that Paul found Chimchar being attacked by a group of wild Zangoose. Due to the amazing power it used fighting the Zangoose, Paul decided to catch it. Also in this episode, Chimchar was matched against a Black Belt's Zangoose and nearly lost to it during the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition.

In Tears For Fears! another group of Zangoose appeared before Team Rocket and fought with Jessie's Seviper. Later, Chimchar found the courage to defeat them.

A powerful Zangoose appeared in Beating the Bustle and Hustle! under the ownership of Crimson. During the battle against Ash and Officer Jenny, Zangoose was able to defeat Buizel but fell to Pikachu's Iron Tail.

A Zangoose appeared in Saving Braviary! under the ownership of the Plasma Grunt Weiss. Weiss sent it out after he and Schwarz caught N getting away with an injured Braviary. It was then used to battle Ash and his friends and was eventually defeated in a battle by Ash's Pikachu with help from the Braviary.

Minor appearances

A Zangoose appeared in the opening of Destiny Deoxys and Lucario and the Mystery of Mew.

Multiple Zangoose appeared in Ash and N: A Clash of Ideals! under the ownership of several Team Plasma Grunts.

Trivia

  • Zangoose and its rival Seviper share several characteristics, such as being in the Field Egg Group, residing in the same Friend Area, and being the only two Pokémon with a base stat total of 458.
    • Zangoose and Seviper also have the exact opposite Experience group, with Zangoose being in the Erratic group and Seviper being in the Fluctuating group.

Origin

Zangoose is based on the mongoose, a cat-like carnivore that is well known for its ability to hunt and kill venomous snakes. It also bears physical resemblance to the Angora and Persian cat breeds. The rivalry it shares with Seviper is based on the relationship between both cats and mongooses towards snakes.

Name origin

Zangoose is a combination of 刪 san (cut down) and mongoose. It may also derive from 残痕 zankon (scar) due to the markings on its body.
