Yungoos is a long-bodied Pokémon that looks like a mongoose. It has brown fur with a yellow stripe along the back and bottom. It features small, rounded ears on its sides, a short snout with a pink nose, and a huge mouth full of pointy teeth. Each of its four tiny legs has three black claws. Yungoos has a robust body and a broad, flat tail with longer hair on the tip, despite its length.

Yungoos has an insatiable appetite and is always hungry. Its stomach dominates most of its body, and it digests food swiftly. Its powerful teeth enable it to smash and eat even the most difficult items. This Pokémon wanders its region in quest of food until it collapses from fatigue. However, it is thought that Yungoos chooses its domain based on safety in order to collapse wherever without concern. [1] This Pokémon was transported to the Alola area and is not native to there.
