Zigzagoon (Japanese: ジグザグマ Jiguzaguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Linoone starting at level 20.

Biology

Zigzagoon is a raccoon-like quadruped Pokémon with bristly, zigzag-patterned fur made of layers of cream and brown. It has a brown head with spiky ears. It has a black nose and a mask pattern over its brown eyes. The upper half of its mouth is jagged, and when it is open, there are two pointed teeth in its lower jaw. Its feet have three claws and pink paw pads. Its forefeet are cream-colored, and the hind feet are brown. Its brush tail is spiky and bristly.

Zigzagoon is abundantly curious, as it wanders restlessly back and forth while rubbing its nose to the ground in search of something. It rubs its bristly back air against trees to mark its territory, and plays dead to fool opponents in battle. Zigzagoon is found commonly in grassy fields.

Trivia

  • Zigzagoon is one of the two Pokémon left out of the Hoenn Pokérap; the other is Relicanth.
  • A Shiny Zigzagoon was given to games from an interactive demo to fix the Berry Glitch.
    • Due to this being available for over three years in North America, Zigzagoon has the honor of having the longest event.

Origin

Zigzagoon is based on the tanuki (Nyctereutes procyonoides viverrinus). Japanese folklore and legend claims that tanuki are tricksters, masters of disguise and capable of shapeshifting, though also absent-minded and gullible. Tanukis are also known for their belly drumming. It also has similarities to ordinary raccoons.

Name origin

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

Jiguzaguma may be a combination of zigzag 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.
