Zangoose first appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. These Mongoose-like Pokémon could only be found uncommonly in the wild on Route 114 in the Pokémon Ruby version. They do not appear in Pokémon Sapphire or Pokémon Emerald and only can obtained via trading. After completing the National Pokédex in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, they can be encountered in some areas of the Safari Zone. Later in Pokémon Black and White, they appear on Route 11 and the Village Bridge.
They have made an appearance in the anime in Pokémon Battle Dimension where a group of Zangoose were attacking Paul's Chimchar.
