Linoone (Galarian) is a Dark & Normal Pokémon which evolves from Zigzagoon. It is vulnerable to Fighting, Bug and Fairy moves. Linoone's strongest moveset is Snarl & Grass Knot and it has a Max CP of 1,662. Linoone (Galarian) evolves into Obstagoon.
"Linoone always runs full speed and only in straight lines. If facing an obstacle, it makes a right-angle turn to evade it. This Pokémon is very challenged by gently curving roads."
Snarl is recommended for its superior energy generation, which is necessary for Galarian Linoone's expensive coverage moves.
Body Slam is mandatory due to its extremely cheap energy cost, backed by STAB. Gunk Shot can be chosen for coverage against weaknesses to Fairy Pokemon. Dig offers wide coverage against popular meta Pokemon, though it's not the most efficient charge move.
Galarian Linoone differs from its Hoenn variant by sporting additional Dark typing and considerably spammier moveset. Unfortunately its coverage options are often too expensive to provide sufficient damage output when necessary, with difficulties against common picks like Azumarill. Overall it's not to be expected much in the open meta, but it can perform much better in limited formats like Silph Arena cups.
With a max CP of 1662, Galarian Linoone lacks sufficient stats to compete in Ultra League.
Galarian Linoone looks cool, but dinosaurs and dragons with more than double its max CP look even cooler.
