Trivia

  • Despite being like a mongoose, it is known as the Cat Ferret Pokémon. It however looks less of a mongoose than Yungoos and Gumshoos, which are more explicitly like their namesake animal.
  • Despite having sharp claws, it is unable to learn Cut.
  • Although Zangoose and Seviper are enemies, they can breed due to being in the same egg group.
  • Before Generation IV, Zangoose was the only Pokémon to learn Crush Claw via level up.
  • Seviper is mentioned in every one of Zangoose's Pokédex entries.
  • Considering the rivalry between Zangoose and Seviper, Zangoose's Ability, Immunity, could be a defense against Seviper's Poisonous attacks.
  • In horde battles in X and Y if there is a Seviper in a group of Zangoose, they attack it first and not your Pokémon until it faints.
  • Zangoose and Seviper are one of three pairs of Pokémon who are natural enemies and attack each other in the wild. The others are Mareanie and Corsola as well as Heatmor and Durant.
  • Zangoose resembles the famous meme cat "Grumpy Cat". Its color markings are also very similar to those of Kratos from God of War.
  • Zangoose’s name is similar to the character name from Street Fighter, a Russian wrestler Zangief.
  • Zangoose is one of the seven missing Pokémon in the Emerald Version.
