Linoone (Japanese: マッスグマ Massuguma) is a Normal-type Pokémon. It evolves from Zigzagoon starting at level 20.
Linoone is a slender-bodied quadruped Pokémon. It has sharp, elongated claws and small pointed teeth. It has white fur with brown stripes with one long stripe stretching the length of the body and ending at an arrowhead right above its eyes. It has small, tuft-like ears and blue eyes.
Linoone can run up to 60 mph, but has to stop before it can make a turn. It often fails to catch prey due to only being able to run in a straight line. When it sees prey underwater in ponds, it leaps in and uses its sharp claws to catch the prey. As shown in the anime, Linoone has an attraction to anything round, and will grab any orb-shaped object it sees if given the chance. It often carries a snatched object in its expandable cheek pouches and deposits it in any of a number of secret stashes it keep on its territory. Linoone tends to live in grasslands.
- Linoone is the only Pokémon that can use the Mix Elixir in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky.
