Weezing now has a weird polluted moustache including an incredibly long top hat that doubles up as its smoke chimney. The normal-type Pokémon Zigzagoon also received a Galar makeover. Now, the brown fur has been replaced with a black and white one which is a dark/normal type Pokémon now. Its next evolution, Linoone, has also been given a similar update. For the Galar region, Linoone got an additional evolution level called Obstagoon.
