I have been wondering why are Zangoose and Seviper against each others?
There must be a reason, does anyone know why they are? Anyone? Why are
they rivals? Why? Please tell me, please only for me!

Mongooses hate snakes. (can't remember if it's natural tendency or if
mongooses are just trained to keep areas snake-free, though)

I think it's a natural thing that humans have exploited to keep areas snake
free. I believe that Mongoose eat snakes, and like to catch them.

Much the same way that cats like to catch mice, and are therefore used to
keep areas mice free. Some cats (and dogs) like catching rats, but it is a
very different technique that catching mice.

Before you go around calling people idiots, perhaps you'd like to note
the similiarities between the two words. The former is based off the
latter, so it's not unreasonable to believe its the same with their
behavior. The mongoose is the creature Zangoose is based on. Get it?

Yes, but the Pokémon itself (and the name) is derived from the
mongoose, which is famous for eating snakes.

If it's the same case with Seviper and Zangoose, then I'm not
surprised the things aren't fond of one another.
