Biology

Physiology

Mamoswine resembles a Template:W crossed with a Template:W. Mamoswine have very thick fur to endure harsh cold and protect from snow and ice, thus explaining their Snow Cloak ability, and tusks made of pure, solid ice; their massive body size is also helpful in preserving their own body heat. Mamoswine also exhibit a few Ground-type charastatics such as their studry body and powerful physics.

Gender differences

A female Mamoswine has shorter tusks than a male one.

Special abilities

Mamoswine have incredibly strong physical force. Their study body and feet enable them to cross even the most dense and dry snow. Mamoswine are able to Endure harsh winters and hunger for an almost indefinite amount of time, as indicated by a ten-thousand-year-old specimen waking up much to the amazement of those who discovered it.

  • Mamoswine and its pre-evolutions are the only Template:Type2s not weak to Rock, due to their part Ground-typing.
  • Mamoswine is the last Ground-type Pokémon in National Dex order as of Generation IV.
  • Mamoswine's evolutionary chain is the only Pokémon weak to all three starter Pokémon primary types: Fire, Water, and Grass.
  • Mamoswine has the highest Attack of any Ice-type.
