Piloswine (イノムー) is the 196th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is an Ice/Ground Type, and is known as the Swine Pokémon.

Piloswine can use one of two Abilities: Oblivious, which prevent it from becoming infatuated with an opposing Pokémon of the opposite gender; or Snow Cloak, which increases its Evasion by one stage during a Hailstorm. A third Ability is available to Piloswine from the Dream World, the Thick Fat Ability. This Ability reduces the damage that it takes from Fire-Type and Ice-Type moves by 50%.

Swinub can evolve into Piloswine at Level 33, and starting in Generation IV, can evolve into Mamoswine if it Levels Up whilst knowing the move Ancientpower.

Piloswine is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Mamoswine 1,250,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Physiology

Piloswine's body is completely covered in its brown fur, other than its two husks that are made out of ice. It has a very big hump on it's back, and two floppy ears. Piloswine also has eyes that are, for the most part, hidden by its fur. Also, similar to Swinub, its legs are hidden from view due to its long fur.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Pryce would reunite with his Piloswine after being separated from it for a number of years in the episode Cold as Pryce!, then would use it in the episode Nice Pryce Baby in Ash's Gym Battle. It quickly defeated Cyndaquil and put up a heck of a fight against Pikachu, only for Pryce to throw in the towel to protect his long-lost friend, winning the match on a TKO.

Dawn would obtain a Piloswine after it evolved from a Swinub in Sleepless in Pre-Battle, but after evolving it developed a stubborn streak and wouldn't listen to Dawn's commands. Despite this, it would evolve into a Mamoswine in A Breed Stampede.

[edit] Movies

Wild Piloswine make appearances in Celebi: Voice of the Forest and Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

[edit] Manga

Piloswine's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Piloswine finds itself as a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Eviolite gives it more bulk defensively, and its Attack Statistic is strong enough to cause plenty of damage. While its Speed is low, it has Ice Shard to make up for it, and Trick Room support will also help overcome this. Watch out for Water-Type and Fighting Type Pokémon, as their attacks will cause a lot of damage. Fire-Types can also cause a lot of damage, but also have to be wary of Ground and Rock Type moves.
