Mamoswine (Japanese: マンムー Mammoo) is a dual-type Ice/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Piloswine when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power. It is the final form of Swinub.

Contents

Biology

Mamoswine resembles a wooly mammoth crossed with a boar. Its brown fur is very thick to endure harsh cold and protect from snow and ice. Its tusks, which are smaller on a female Mamoswine than on a male, are made of pure, solid ice. Mamoswine has a blue mask-like pattern with a white rim around its face, resembling ski goggles. The fur on its muzzle is tan and shaggy, and its nose resembles that of a pig. Mamoswine's feet are black with three thick toes, and its tail is small. It can endure harsh cold and hunger for an almost indefinite amount of time, as indicated by a ten-thousand-year-old specimen reviving. Mamoswine lived all around the world during the last ice age, but its population thinned when the climate grew warmer. Mamoswine inhabit cold places, such as mountainous regions and frozen tundra.

Dawn has a Mamoswine, which evolved from a Piloswine in A Breed Stampede!, which also marked the species' main series debut.

Since then, Mamoswine became a reliable partner and was used in many Contest Battles.
