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.

Biology

Zangoose is a bipedal Pokémon resembling a cross between a mongoose and cat. Despite being 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. Its fur stands up on end when it smells its arch-enemy Seviper nearby. 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 for many generations. Its claws are its best weapons and can be used for its former signature move, Crush Claw. It lives in grasslands and savannas.

Major appearances

Zangoose debuted in ZigZag Zangoose, under the ownership of Nicholai. It battled Ash and his Treecko, but suddenly, Zangoose noticed Jessie's Seviper and started to battle it instead. Ash, his friends, and even Team Rocket did not know what was going on, but it was Zangoose and Seviper's natural rivalry that got the two fighting. 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 reappeared and engaged it in battle again. 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, a 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. The team reappeared in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness.

In Glory Blaze!, it was revealed that Paul found Chimchar while it was being attacked by multiple Zangoose. Due to the amazing power Chimchar used while fighting the Zangoose, Paul decided to catch it. Also in this episode, Chimchar faced off against a Black Belt's Zangoose and nearly lost to it during the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition.

In Tears For Fears!, multiple Zangoose confronted Team Rocket and fought Jessie's Seviper. Later, Chimchar found the courage to defeat them.

In Beating the Bustle and Hustle!, Crimson used a Zangoose in a battle against Ash and Officer Jenny. It was able to defeat Buizel but then fell to Pikachu's Iron Tail.

In Saving Braviary!, Weiss sent out a Zangoose 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 same Braviary.

Zangoose certainly has a brave side, using its sharp claws to fight back against foes. But it actually seems to enjoy peaceful activities, like listening to the sound of the ocean waves or nearby singing.

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

Name origin

Zangoose may be a combination of 斬 zan (slash) and mongoose.
