Ruby Memories of battling its arch-rival SEVIPER are etched into every cell of ZANGOOSE's body. This POKéMON adroitly dodges attacks with incredible agility.
Sapphire ZANGOOSE usually stays on all fours, but when angered, it gets up on its hind legs and extends its claws. This POKéMON shares a bitter rivalry with SEVIPER that dates back over generations.
Emerald When it battles, it stands on its hind legs and attacks with its sharply clawed forelegs. Its fur bristles if it encounters any SEVIPER.
Fire Red If it comes across a SEVIPER, its fur bristles and it assumes its battle pose. Its sharp claws are its best weapon.
Leaf Green If it comes across a SEVIPER, its fur bristles and it assumes its battle pose. Its sharp claws are its best weapon.
