Zangoose are a large mammal- like Poke'mon that have the characteristic feature of a mongoose or a cat. They are usually white in colour and have large, red markings on their face, chest and paw that have sharp pointed turns and edges that resemble lighting bolts. The markings that they possess makes it look like they have been involved in a massive fight and is covered in blood and scars. Zangoose have two large claws on their front paws that they use as their main weapon in defence. In earlier creations, these claws had a purple colour. They have pink eyes, tufts of fur on their shoulders and a large thick fox like tail. Zangoose also have a pattern of four pink coloured circles on its feet.
Zangoose are bitter enemies with the snake-like Poke'mon, Seviper and have a never ending battle between them. This rivalry had lasted years and will continue on forever. Zangoose usually walk on all fours, but when they are in battle or distressed they stand on their hind legs. They live in grasslands with trees and mountains and are usually found on Route 114 in the Hoenn region. Zangoose are active hunters and its prey includes Seviper's.
Zangoose has Immunity powers and are immune to poison. When they are poisoned, it increases their health. Zangoose have possibly developed this power over time to deal with their enemies, Seviper who have poisoned fangs.
