Zigzagoon 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 it also allows 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 causes a held Berry to be consumed earlier than usual when its Hit Points are low, but is cancelled out by the Unnerve ability. Zigzagoon's Hidden Ability is Quick Feet. With the exception of Paralysis, when afflicted by a status condition its Speed Statistic increases by 50%.

In Heart Gold and Soul Silver, the Hoenn Sound plays on the Pokégear station Pokémon Music on Wednesdays. With this song playing, Zigzagoon will appear at Sprout Tower, Bell Tower, and Burnt Tower.
