Description: Similar in shape to a badger, Linoone is long and slim with extra fluff around its neck. It has one long brown stripe down its back and a pair of broken lines on its sides. It has blue eyes and a fluffy tail. Linoone have very sharp claws and teeth. Despite their small size and short legs, Linoone can run up to 60 miles per hour! However, they cannot turn while running, but instead need to come to a complete stop before they can turn. They hunt for prey near and in water, and are attracted to round objects. They will pilfer small balls or baubles and store them in pouches in their cheeks.

In Galar, Galarian Linoone are darker, in black and white with blood red eyes. They have longer tongues that often hang out of their mouths and cuffs of grey fur around their forelegs. Harsher conditions have caused this version of Linoone to develop longer and sharper claws and teeth, and the ability to evolve into Obstagoon. Galarian Linoone are fearless and rash, eager to challenge Pokémon much stronger than them. They taunt their opponents with their long tongues and will throw themselves into any fight without hesitation. Much stronger than the standard Linoone, they can tackle with enough force to flip a car.
