==In the anime==
Pryce had obtained Piloswine somewhere in his youth and the two were very close to each other. During a tournament Pryce entered in, Piloswine managed to defeat a {{p|Nidoking}} with a {{m|Take Down}}, a {{p|Golem}} with a {{m|Fury Attack}}, and an {{p|Ursaring}} with a {{m|Blizzard}}, freezing it in the process. Piloswine was on a roll until it went up against a Trainer with a {{p|Magmar}}. Pryce was confident that Piloswine was going to defeat Magmar, though. The battle began and one of Magmar's attacks burnt the {{type|Ice}}. When Magmar used {{m|Fire Blast}} to finish it off, Pryce jumped in the way to prevent it from getting hurt. As a result, both Pryce and Piloswine suffered burns and were taken to a cottage. Suddenly, Piloswine stepped outside and left the cottage to never come back, seemingly abandoning Pryce in disgust for their defeat. This resulted in Pryce growing bitter and distant from his Pokémon.

Many years later, {{Ash}} and Pryce went into a cave where they found Piloswine trapped in ice, with some herbs by its side. It was revealed that Piloswine had stepped into the blizzard in order to get some herbs to cure Pryce from his burns, but became trapped in ice. Heartbroken, Pryce realized thehis bighuge misunderstanding. Ash melted the ice surrounding Piloswine with {{AP|Cyndaquil}}'s {{m|Flamethrower}} and had {{AP|Pikachu}} use {{m|Thunder Shock}} on it to revive it. After many attempts, Piloswine finally woke up. Pryce was then told by Piloswine that it remembered him, and the gym leader was ecstatic to reunite with his old friend. Piloswine used Rest to recover from the wounds it suffered from. Ash, Pryce and Piloswine left the cave and reunited with [[Sheila]], {{an|Misty}} and {{an|Brock}}. {{TRT}} showed up and Piloswine took on their {{TP|Jessie|Arbok}} and {{TP|James|Weezing}}. Piloswine attacked them with Fury Attack first and then froze them with Blizzard, leaving Pikachu to finish them off. Having a change of heart, Pryce then accepted Ash's challenge.
In ''[[EP238|Nice Pryce, Baby!]]'', Pryce groomed Piloswine before his upcoming Gym battle. He sent it out after his {{p|Dewgong}} was defeated by Cyndaquil. Piloswine began with Blizzard which took Cyndaquil out in one hit. Pikachu was then sent out. Pikachu was hit by Piloswine's barrage of Blizzard attacks. Pikachu took advantage of this after one of the Blizzards formed an ice pillar, by having him slide under Piloswine and use {{m|Thunder}}. This hurt Piloswine, but it used Rest to recover. After waking up, Piloswine countered Pikachu's {{m|Quick Attack}} with a combination of Take Down and Fury Attack. Pikachu used {{m|Thunderbolt}} but it had no effect this time. Piloswine once again used the earlier used combo and started to get tired. Pryce threw in the towel and went up to Piloswine, rewarding it for a job well done.
