Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are filled with various ingredients and materials that you will collect as you explore the Paldea region. Most of the materials you find come from pokémon and are used to create TMs so you can teach your team some new moves. Zangoose Claws is just one of the many materials you can get in the games and it comes from the cat ferret pokémon. This guide will show you how to get Zangoose Claws in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Where to find Zangoose in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Pokémon materials come from different pokemon evolution lines. Similar to how you can get Swablu Fluff from Swablu and Altaria, you can get Zangoose Claws from Zangoose. Of course, you need to find these pokémon first before you start collecting materials from them. This is easier said than done because Zangoose only produces a small part of the Paldea region.
As you can tell from Zangoose’s habitat map, you can only find this pokémon in the southeastern part of the Paldea region. In particular, Zangoose only spread in South Province Area Three and South Province Area Five. You can easily find this pokémon near the swamp area in South Province Area Five. Since Zangoose is a normal-type pokémon, make sure you bring a pokémon that knows fighting-type moves.

To get Zangoose Claws, you have to fight Zangoose in the wild. Every time you defeat or capture a wild Zangoose, you’ll earn up to three claws to add to your growing collection of materials. You can also get this material from car battles and Tera Raid Battles against Zangoose. Zangoose Claws can be used to perform TM088 Sword Dance and TM152 Giga Impact.
