{{Dex/Entry1|v=Sun|entry=With its sharp fangs, it will bite anything. It did not originally live in Alola but was imported from another region.}}
{{Dex/Entry1|v=Moon|entry=It wanders around in a never-ending search for food. At dusk, it collapses from exhaustion and falls asleep on the spot.}}
Yungoos appears to be based on a {{wp|mongoose}}, such as the {{wp|small Asian mongoose}}, which was imported to {{wp|Hawaii}} to counter the rat problems on sugar cane plantations.
However, the small Asian mongoose is diurnal while rats are nocturnal, thus the small Asian mongoose was ineffective at its intended role and became an {{wp|invasive species}}. This is reflected in-game by the fact that Yungoos can only be found during the day, while Alolan Rattata can only be found at night.
