Pryce's Piloswine (Japanese: ヤナギのイノムー Yanagi's Inomoo) is Pryce's main Pokémon in the anime and games.

In the anime

History

Pryce obtained a Piloswine ever since he was young. During a tournament Pryce entered in, Piloswine manages to defeat a Nidoking with Take Down, a Golem with Fury Attack, and an Ursaring with Blizzard, freezing it in the process. Piloswine was on a roll until it went up against a Trainer with a Magmar. Pryce was confident that Piloswine was going to defeat Magmar. The battle began and one of Magmar's attacks burnt the Ice-type. When Magmar used Fire Blast to finish it off, Pryce jumped in the way to prevent it from getting hurt. As a result, both Pryce and Piloswine suffered burns and were taken to a cottage. Piloswine left the cottage to get some herbs to cure Pryce from his burns. However, it did not come back leading Pryce into thinking that it abandoned him.

Pryce and his Piloswine

Years later, Ash and Pryce go into a cave where they find Piloswine. It was revealed that Piloswine managed to get the herbs but fell down and became frozen. Pryce was happy to reunite with his old friend. Ash melts the ice surrounding Piloswine with Cyndaquil's Flamethrower. With Piloswine thawed out, Pikachu then uses ThunderShock on the Ice-type to give it more energy. With Piloswine revived, Pryce is then told that by Piloswine that it remembers him. Piloswine uses Rest to recover from the wounds it suffered from. Ash, Pryce and Piloswine leave the cave and reunite with Sheila, Misty and Brock. Team Rocket show up and Piloswine takes on their Arbok and Weezing. Piloswine attacks them with Fury Attack first and then freezes them with Blizzard, leaving Pikachu to finish them off.

In Nice Pryce, Baby!, Pryce grooms Piloswine for his upcoming Gym battle. He sends it out after Dewgong was defeated by Cyndaquil. Piloswine began with Blizzard which took Cyndaquil out in one hit. Pikachu is then sent out. Pikachu is hit by Piloswine's barrage of Blizzard attacks. Pikachu takes advantage of this after one of the Blizzards formed an ice pillars by having him slide under Piloswine and uses Thunder. Piloswine uses Rest to recover. After waking up, Piloswine counters Pikachu's Quick Attack with a combination of Take Down and Fury Attack. Pikachu uses Thunderbolt but has no effect this time. Piloswine once again uses the combo and starts to get tired. Pryce throws in the towel and goes up to Piloswine, rewarding it for a job well done.

Personality and characteristics

Piloswine is considered to be part of Pryce's family as seen in various flashbacks during its debut episode. However, Pryce's opinion about Piloswine changed after it left and didn't come back. Years later, he was still the same until Ash and Pryce found Piloswine frozen in a cave.
