Additionally, fans who are familiar with Zangoose know that it’s constantly fighting with its rival Seviper, which mirrors the real-life rivalry between Mongoose and venomous snakes.

Does Zangoose evolve in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet?

Sadly, Zangoose didn’t receive a new evolution in Generation 9, like Primeape and Bisharp did. This means that Zangoose’s stats will not receive any large boosts while it levels up.

Despite having no evolution, Zangoose still has quite a respectable stat spread and move pool.

However, it’s worth noting that Zangoose still boasts a respectable 115 base Attack stat and 90 base Speed stat, making it fairly competent in battle. Additionally, Zangoose’s Normal-typing means it can learn a wide variety of powerful moves of differing types, like X-Scissor, Close Combat, and Swords Dance.
