Zigzagoon (Japanese: ジグザグマ Jiguzaguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III and Dark/Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII.

Biology

Physiology

Zigzagoon is a small quadrupedal raccoon-like Pokémon. It has a brown and tan zigzag pattern lining its shaggy fur that grows in segmented patches along its body. Its front paws are white, and its back legs are brown. Much like a raccoon, Zigzagoon has a black mask marking surrounding its beady black eyes. It has short brown ears and a round black nose. Its tail is striped, ending in a thick fuzzy bush.

Behavior

Zigzagoon are very curious creatures, always checking things out with their noses running back and forth in a zigzag pattern. They rub their bristly back hair against trees to mark their individual territories, and they play dead to fool their opponents in battle as a means to fend themselves from predators.

Galarian Zigzagoon are more provocative, restless and fierce, never wanting to settle down. Having a strong adaptability, they lurk in different residences, ranging from rural to urban areas. They always prefer charging at people and other Pokémon just to provoke a fight, but this strategy is futile outside battles, since most humans tend to mistake their provocation as affection, much to their frustration.

Evolution

Zigzagoon evolves into Linoone at level 20.

Trivia

  • On the report of the discovery in Galar, the Galarian Zigzagoon is the oldest branch of all Zigzagoon. In other quarters, the previously discovered Hoennian Form Zigzagoon are all branched non-native species of their regions.
    • The other regions' Zigzagoon (for example, Hoenn and Kalos) might be Glaraian forms which had arrived in these said regions and then adapted into the less hostile environment, hence losing the Dark-type.

Origin

Zigzagoon's name and category suggest it is based on a raccoon. It also resembles the Japanese raccoon dog. The Galarian form's coloration has taken inspiration from the band Kiss as well as European badgers.

Etymology

Zigzagoon's name is a portmanteau of the words "zigzag", referring to both the pattern on its fur and its habit of walking in zigzags, and "raccoon".

Jiguzaguma is a combination of a corruption of zigzag, and suffix Guma (kuma) used for animals that resemble bears. Also, anaguma (badger) and araiguma (raccoon).

Whilst some languages maintain the same word as the English, French is slightly different; Zigzaton. Raton means raccoon. The German word, Zigzachs is not only a corruption of 'zigzag', but also includes 'dachs', badger. Korea's Jigujaeguri is from Zigzag and neoguri, again a word for raccoon. The Chinese name, Shéwénxióng, literally means 'a snake patterned bear', based of its appearance and its zigzag pattern somewhat like a snake.
