Linoone can use one of two Abilities: Pickup, which gives it a 10% chance of this Pokémon finding an item to hold after battle, but this won't work if it is already holding an item, and will also allow for the user of the ability to pick up the item of either its opponent or ally if such an item was used up during battle; or Gluttony, which allows its held Berry to be consumed earlier than usual when its Hit Points are low, an effect that gets cancelled out by the Unnerve ability. Linoone's Hidden Ability is Quick Feet. With the exception of Paralysis, when afflicted by a status condition its Speed Statistic increases by 50%.
Zigzagoon can evolve into Linoone starting at Level 20.
Linoone is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Linoone One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Linoone resembles a ferret. Its fur has line patterns that run the length of its body, in contrast to the fur patterns seen on its pre-evolved form Zigzagoon.
 Gender Differences
Linoone doesn't have any gender differences to help differentiate between male and female.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Linoone finds itself in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling as a result of Statistics that are below average, save its Speed. The best way it can be utilized is using Belly Drum to maximize its Attack, but that's risky in itself due to its low Defenses.
