The Wiki claims that Zombified Piglins need lit portal blocks to spawn in the Overworld but in my new world, that has never had a lit portal, I came across a ZP near a Ruined Portal. Has anybody else seen that?
I know that ZP can be created when pigs are hit by lightning, and I think I may have had a thunder storm, but it seems pretty unlikely that that would happen to have happened next to a Ruined Portal?
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
It's completely likely that a Pig could have just been there at the right time. If there are no portal blocks present, then the only way a Zombie Pigman/Zombified Piglin could get there would be for a Pig to have been struck by lightning. IIRC lightning is more likely to strike an entity than it is to strike a random piece of land by design.
