Here is the Pokemon Go guide for Swinub, Mamoswine, and Piloswine


Swinub is a Pokémon from the Johto region that is Ice and Ground. When fed 25 candies, it evolves into Piloswine, and then into Mamoswine. Swinub forages by rubbing its snout on the ground for food. A mushroom that grows under the shelter of dead grass is its favorite meal. This Pokémon digs up hot springs from time to time. Swinub develops into Piloswine at level 33, and with learning the move Mamoswine, it may further evolve into Mamoswine. Ancient Strength

In Pokémon GO, it is an Ice and Ground-type Pokémon. It has a maximum CP of 837 with the following stats: 90 ATK, 69 DEF, and 137 STA. In Pokémon GO, Swinub’s greatest moves are Tackle and Rock Slide (5.40 DPS). Swinub is weak to moves like Fighting, Fire, Grass, Steel, and Water. Snow and sunny sunshine help Swinub grow. 

When attacking Pokémon in Gyms, Swinub’s greatest moves are Powder Snow and Return. This moveset has the most overall DPS and is also the most effective in PVP encounters.

Pokemon Go guide: Mamoswine

Mamoswine is one of the greatest Generation 4 Pokémon to have in your offensive lineup. Mamoswine is the new ice type meta king since it possesses all the necessary characteristics to be meta significant. To flourish in the meta, you need great stats and a solid moveset, and Mamoswine possesses both. The attack stat of 247 is rather good, and while having an average-tier defensive stat, the stamina stat compensates for it.

Is it possible to call it hefty as well? It isn’t the biggest pokemon in the world, but it can certainly take a beating. At the very least, it outperforms its nearest competition, Weavile.

Powder Snow and Avalanche are its finest moves. Powder Snow is a fast move with a large energy gain that will assist you in launching as many Avalanches as possible. It has a lower DPS than Ice Shard and Frost Breath. But the greatest EPS of all ice types is Fast Moves. Avalanche, on the other hand, is without a doubt the finest ice type Charge Move available in the game.

How does it fare as a ground-based assailant? To begin with, Mud-Slap and Bulldoze aren’t the most effective ground techniques. Many Ground-type attackers are better than Groudon, Rhyperior, and the yet-to-be-released Garchomp. It isn’t terrible, but there are better alternatives.

The Rayquaza raid is one fight where Mamoswine shines. Rayquaza has a double weakness to ice-type attacks as a dragon and a flying-type Pokémon, and as previously said, Mamoswine is the finest ice-type attacker in the game.


Piloswine is a Pokémon from the Johto region that is Ice and Ground. After being fed 25 candies, it develops into Swinub, and after being fed 100 sweets and a Sinnoh Stone, it transforms into Mamoswine.

Piloswine has an impressive hump on its back and is a big, brown, furry Pokémon. A pair of ice tusks on each tusk appear small, but can be deadly. Piloswine tusks become thicker when it snows, and females have smaller tusks than males. It has a sensitive ear that wiggles in response to sound. In the head of the Piloswine, there are two beady eyes, but these are usually covered with fur tufts. Due to their inability to see, the pigs often inspect the surroundings with their sensitive noses.

Typically, its hair covers its short, hooved legs. Its hooves provide even footing on icy surfaces despite the small size of its legs. Pigoswine tends to inhabit cold places such as ice caves, mountainous areas, and frozen tundra. In the winter, it digs around under snow and ice to find food.

In Pokémon GO, it has a maximum CP of 2652 with the following stats: 181 ATK, 138 DEF, and 225 STA. Powder Snow and Avalanche are Piloswine’s greatest moves in Pokémon GO (10.42 DPS). Fighting, Fire, Grass, Steel, and Water-type moves are all susceptible to Piloswine.
