Linoone (Japanese: マッスグマ Massuguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

Biology

Physiology

Linoone is a quadrupedal long-bodied ferret-like Pokémon. It is mostly covered in cream-colored fur, with brown stripes running down its back and tail. It has a weasel-like snout, tiny ruffled ears, a black nose, and bright blue eyes. Its tail is long and furry. It has long, slender arms and legs with sharp claws on each.

Behavior

For some reason Linoone has a fondness for round objects which it will carry in its cheek pouches until it finds a suitable place to stash it.

Natural abilities

This Pokémon is a very speedy runner. However, its legs make it so that it can only run in a straight line. To turn it has to slow down and stop. It inherits the ability Pickup from Zigzagoon, making it useful to those who want the occasional free item during their travels. However, due to its ability, a lot of trainers abuse this Pokémon in a similar way to how Meowth was abused; by raising multiple Linoone or Zigzagoon with the intention of claiming items.

Evolution

Linoone is the evolved form of Zigzagoon. Zigzagoon evolves into Linoone once it reaches level 20.

Trivia

Origin

Linoone is likely based on a ferret.

Etymology

Linoone's name seems to be a mix of the words "line" and "raccoon", even though this Pokémon is based on a ferret rather than a raccoon (which its pre-evolution was based on).
