Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
- Zangoose [#335]
Notable BiologyZangoose is noted for its species feud with Seviper. When in close proximity with Seviper, the scent of it will cause Zangoose’s hairs to stand on end and it will assume its bipedal position. When faced with a Seviper, Zangoose will dodge the Seviper’s attacks with incredible agility and slash with its sharp claws. Zangoose is highly adapted to fighting Seviper. One of its most notable adaptations is its immunity to any toxins that it is attacked with. It is not only immune to Seviper’s poison; it is even immune to the poisons produced by other Pokémon like Zubat, Nidoran, and Skorupi. The compounds in Zangoose’s blood are produced to make Antidotes used to cure Pokémon of poisoning.
HabitatLike Seviper, it primarily lives in grasslands in the vicinity of rocky cliffs or mountains with sparse trees and tall grass. These areas include Hoenn Route 114 and Sinnoh Route 208. They make their homes in cliffside burrows and marking it with a distinct, musky odor.
DietZangoose is a carnivorous species. While it will eat any Seviper that it manages to kill, it will also hunt and eat other snakelike Pokémon like Ekans and Dunsparce. It will also feed on insects, crustaceans, lizards, birds, and rodents. These include Corphish, Nincada, Taillow, and Sandshrew. It will also eat Pokémon eggs.
HazardsWild Zangoose are quite territorial. When provoked, the slashes given by its razor-sharp claws can cause mortal injury. Keep away from burrows in cliffs emanating a strong, musky odor if not traveling with a strong enough Pokémon. When captured, they are generally loyal to their trainers. Make sure to hold Pokémon battles away from places that are known to be Seviper habitats, as this can cause Zangoose to become distracted and eventually leave to hunt Seviper. It is unwise to have a Seviper and a Zangoose as allies in the same party, as they will immediately fight each other when given the chance.
Courting and ChildrearingZangoose are sexually mature at four months. During mating season, male Zangoose release their distinctive musky odor in order to attract females. They also make a high-pitched noise known as “giggling” to get the female’s attention. Sometimes, two males will fight each other two mate with a female. The female will be pregnant for up to 49 days and will give birth to a litter of 2-5 individuals. Baby Zangoose are fed milk for up to two months and will leave at sexual maturity.
Social StructureZangoose is mainly solitary, but will sometimes share burrows with other Zangoose. Female Zangoose will live with their offspring until they leave.

- 1. Sweeping generalizations are not your friend. Not every human is a grouch, an irredeemable monster, or, for that matter, a saint. Neither is every (insert mon here). Leave room for exceptions.
- 2. Keep your Pokémon's portrayal at least somewhat consistent with those in official media, whether you draw from the games, anime, mangas, TCG, etc. If a canonical element doesn't make sense (whether logical, common, or economic), try to ensure your revisions still dovetail with the rest of canon.
- *!* 3. There IS such a thing as TMI. Avoid gratuitous grimdarkness as well.
- 4. Articles should provide a BASIS for telling stories, not exist AS stories. For example, while we do reference a few non-canonical incidents involving Entei and a Giratina from the HG/SS event, we leave the details of the former and the adventures of the latter to the imaginations of others.
- 5. Clever integration of game quirks is good.
- 6. Try to flesh out each section of the article. It's perfectly fine to request assistance in the thread.
- *!* 7. Have fun. Respect the other contributors.
- *!* 8. The thread is your friend, don't be afraid to ask for ideas.
- 9. Don't blatantly contradict other articles. If a contradiction looks necessary, talk it over with the other poster and/or the thread, first.
- 10. Let us know what you plan on writing in advance. (See Dibs) Especially in any case where an article impacts subjects of other articles, whether written yet or not.
- 11. Keep criticism constructive and friendly. "I couldn't help but notice (insert x here), have you ever considered (insert y here)" =/= "(insert x here) is a horrible idea, you should use (insert y here) instead."
- 12. Don't significantly modify another researcher's article without his/her foreknowledge. Fixing grammar is one thing, rewriting sections is quite another. However, if a researcher does not respond to inquiries on an article within a reasonable time, the article will become collaboratively managed by the thread.
