Linoone (Japanese: マッスグマ Massuguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It runs at 60 miles per hour, but can only run in straight lines so it often misses its prey.

## Special abilitiesEdit

This Pokémon 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.

## EvolutionEdit

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