Linoone (Japanese: マッスグマ Massuguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Zigzagoon starting at level 20.

Biology

Linoone is a slender-bodied quadruped Pokémon. It has sharp, elongated claws and small pointed teeth. It has white fur with brown stripes with one long stripe stretching the length of the body and ending at an arrowhead right above its eyes. It has small, tuft-like ears and blue eyes.

Linoone can run up to 60 mph, but has to stop before it can make a turn. It often fails to catch prey due to only being able to run in a straight line. When it sees prey underwater in ponds, it leaps in and uses its sharp claws to catch the prey. As shown in the anime, Linoone has an attraction to anything round, and will grab any orb-shaped object it sees if given the chance. It often carries a snatched object in its expandable cheek pouches and deposits it in any of a number of secret stashes it keep on its territory. Linoone tends to live in grasslands.

In the anime

Linoone in the anime

Major appearances

In Showdown at Linoone, a Linoone nicknamed "Tokin" had developed a bad habit of stealing anything round.

In Green Guardian, Solana used her Capture Styler to get help from three of Linoone to slash the vines.

Minor appearances

Linoone made a cameo in the movie Jirachi: Wish Maker as one of the Pokémon living in Forina.

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

A Linoone appeared in Camping It Up!.

Three Linoone made an appearance in the movie Arceus and the Jewel of Life. The three belonged to Damos and were used to attack Arceus.

Linoone appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions as a few of the many local Pokémon who lives in Crown City. One Linoone worked with several other Pokémon in surrounding Zorua in the park to attack him, angry at Zorua for what Zoroark did to the city. Before a fight broke out, Linoone, along with the other Pokémon, were calmed by Celebi.

A Linoone appeared in Lumiose City Pursuit!, and even in a flashback in Mega Evolution Special I at Professor Sycamore's lab.

Multiple Linoone are set to appear in M17.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG112 Linoone Ash's Pokédex Linoone, the Rushing Pokémon. Linoone is the evolved form of Zigzagoon. It can run at speeds over 60 miles per hour but does not handle curves well.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.
Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP005 Linoone Dawn's Pokédex Linoone, the Rushing Pokémon. When it spots its prey, it runs after it in a straight line. Though able to run over sixty miles per hour, it is unable to turn.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Emerald used a Linoone holding a Choice Band to breeze through the Battle Factory. Because it was a rental Pokémon he'd just received, its extra-powerful Frustration went a long way before he challenged Noland.

In the TCG

Main article: Linoone (TCG)

In the TFG

One Linoone figure has been released.

NPC appearances

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.

Trivia

Origin

Linoone's appearance is possibly a cross between the European or Japanese badger and a member of the weasel and/or ferret family, or it may possibly be based on the ferret-badger. It also shares the same color scheme of tanukis and raccoons. Its stripes slightly resemble flames and lightning, which may be a reference to race cars, who typically use these patterns on their vehicles for show. Linoone may also be based on the legendary Kamaitachi, which is usually depicted as 3 lightning fast weasels who wield razor-sharp claws which tear into their victims. It may also be based on the Ramidreju: a long, weasel-like creature, who has a desire for gold, which may have been the basis of Linoone's obsession for round objects.

Name origin

Linoone may be a combination of line (referring to its fur pattern and unusual habits) and raccoon or raccoon dog.

Massuguma may be a combination of まっすぐ massugu (straight, as in a line) and アライグマ araiguma (raccoon) or 穴熊 anaguma (badger). Guma (熊 kuma) as a suffix is often used for mammals that resemble bears.
