Zangoose (ザングース Zangūsu) is a Pokémon that resembles a mix between a mongoose and a cat (it's described as a "Cat Ferret" on the Pokédex because it is not only based on both, but the Japanese translation for these words also comes out to "mongoose"). Although a quadruped, it can easily stand on two feet when angered in battle. Zangoose's main means of defense are its agility and its sharp claws. Its speed is matched only by Scyther's. Many of the attacks a Zangoose learns naturally involve the use of its claws.
