Piloswine (Japanese: イノムー Inomoo) is a dual-type Ice/Ground Pokémon.

It evolves from Swinub starting at level 33 and evolves into Mamoswine when leveled up while knowing AncientPower.

Biology

Physiology

Piloswine are big brown furry Pokémon that have an impressive hump on their backs, giving them a hunchbacked appearance. They also have two tusks made of ice, which seem small but can be lethal, and floppy ears which are sensitive to sound. Piloswine has two beady eyes in its head; however, these are usually covered up by tufts of fur. Piloswine’s shaggy coat makes it unable to see, so it checks surroundings with its sensitive pig-like nose instead. Piloswine’s hair is so long that it usually covers its small, hooved legs.

Gender differences

A female Piloswine has shorter tusks than a male.

Special abilities

Although its legs are short, its rugged hooves give it sure footing even on icy ground. As an dual Ice- and Ground Pokémon, Piloswine can also use a variety of moves from both types. Its tusks of ice thicken when it snows.

Behavior

Piloswine are strong, brave, and undeniably stubborn. Wild Piloswine jealously guard their herd's territory, driving off any creatures that trespass. Domesticated Piloswine are loyal to a fault. There are stories of Piloswine who refuse to go down no matter how hard a battle becomes in an attempt to live up to their Trainer's expectations of them.

If Piloswine charges at an enemy, the hairs on its back stand up straight. It is very sensitive to sound, and because its long hair obscures its sight, it will continue charging repeatedly.

Habitat

Cave

Cave Pokémon

Piloswine tend to inhabit cold places, such as icy caves, mountainous regions and frozen tundra.

Diet

It often digs for food buried beneath snow and ice.
