Zigzagoon (ジグザグマ) is the 12th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and is known as the TinyRaccoon Pokémon.

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%.

Zigzagoon gain the opportunity to evolve into Linoone starting at Level 20.

Zigzagoon is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Zigzagoon One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

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. Hoenn Sound won't be necessary to find Zigzagoon in the Safari Zone--with the correct blocks in place a Zigzagoon can appear there as well. Place 15 Forest Objects in the Plains or place 10 Plains Objects in the Savannah to find Zigzagoon in the aforementioned Safari Zone areas, and in this instance there is a day waiting period of 0 for Wild Zigzagoon to appear.
