==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 {{wp|ice age}}, but its population thinned when the climate grew warmer. Mamoswine inhabit cold places, such as mountainous regions and frozen tundra.

===Major appearances===
====[[Dawn's Mamoswine]]====
{{an|Dawn}} has a Mamoswine, which evolved from a {{p|Piloswine}} in ''[[DP106|A Breed Stampede!]]'', which also marked the species' main series debut. There was a time where Mamoswine [[Obedience|would not listen]] to Dawn's commands, but it eventually realized how deeply she cared for it in ''[[DP119|Trials and Adulations!]]'' and started obeying her. Since then, Mamoswine became a reliable partner and was used in many [[Contest Battle]]s.

==Trivia==
* Mamoswine's {{game3|Diamond and Pearl|Pokémon Diamond, Pearl|s}}, {{game3|HeartGold and SoulSilver|SoulSilver|s}}, {{game3|Black 2 and White 2|Black 2, White 2|s}} and {{pkmn|X and Y|Y}} Pokédex entries are a reference to how {{wp|woolly mammoth}}s became extinct.
* Mamoswine would have been obtainable in both [[Generation II]] and [[Generation III]] if it had existed, as {{p|Piloswine}} could learn {{m|Ancient Power}} in both generations. It shares this trait with {{p|Lickilicky}}.
* No other Pokémon has the same [[type]] [[List of Pokémon with unique type combinations|combination]] as Mamoswine and its pre-evolutions, {{p|Swinub}} and {{p|Piloswine}}.
