Linoone (マッスグマ) is the 13th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and is known as the Rushing Pokémon.

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.

[edit] Game Information

Linoone can be found in the wild at Routes 118, 119, 120, 121 and 123 in Ruby and Sapphire, but only appears at Routes 118 and 119 in Emerald. Linoone can only be obtained by way of evolving Zigzagoon in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.

Linoone is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the Path to Treasure Mountain B15-B24.

Linoone inhabits Lila Forest in Pokémon Ranger. This would be Linoone's only appearance in the Pokémon Ranger series, as it wasn't in either Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia or Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs.

Linoone can be found at Desolated Ruins Canyon 3-1 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

[edit] Trading Card Game

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
