Mine knows Close Combat to deal with Rock, steel, and normal types.
Rain Dance part of a strategy.
Ice Beam to deal with Flying and ground types.
also Thunder other part of the strategy, also to deal with Water types.
Areail ace(fighting weakness
Crush Claw(to lower Defense)
Close Combat Brick Break or Earthquake(for more power. Swords Dance is a good option here too. Strength might also be good, for STAB.
EDIT: Sorry, Zangoose cant learn Earthquake.
Ability: Toxic Boost
Pretty simple set. You poison him, and he kills stuff. Facade gets STAB and double power, on top of the ability boost when he's poisoned. Shadow claw covers ghost types that try to get an immunity on facade, while close combat deals with Rock and steel types that resist normal. Swords dance can be used to boost his power even higher, or Aerial ace can be used to cover fighting types.
Ice beam to deal with flying/ground types,
brick break, same reason as swampert
crush claw, STAB, lower defense
arial ace, same reason as swampert.
Close Combat-Good Power,Good Accuracy,used to defeat Rock and steel types,which normal type moves don't do much damage to.
Also used to defeat other Normal types.
Aerial Ace-Used to deal with Fighting types.
Swords Dance-used to Power up all these moves.

Return is good STAB and has good neutral coverage.
Close Combat takes care of Steel- and Rock-types obstacles resisting Return.
Pursuit catches fleeing Pokemon (Get the f*ck back here!) and is backed up by band.
Quick Attack is nice STAB priority to finish off weakened opponents.Shadow Claw hits Ghosts harder than Pursuit does and is an alternative if Quick Attack isn't desired.
I will train a Zangoose soon because I believe that in Pokemon X and Y will have a new Evolution but for now my Zangoose will hav:
Close Combat: Great Move
Aerial Ace: Covers Fight Moves
Swords Dance: Raise Attack
Facade: Boosted by Toxic
Ability: Toxic Boost
P.S. I hope to find One in Hidden Grotto
Jolly, I hope!
