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 Ancient Power.

Biology

Piloswine's eyes

Piloswine is a big, brown, furry Pokémon with an impressive hump on its back. It also has two tusks made of ice, which seem small but can be lethal. These tusks thicken when it snows, and they are smaller on a female Piloswine than on a male. It has floppy ears that are sensitive to sound. Piloswine has two beady eyes in its head; however, these are usually covered up by tufts of fur. As it is usually unable to see, it checks surroundings with its sensitive pig-like nose instead. Its hair is so long that it usually covers its small, hoofed legs. Despite the small size of its legs, its hooves ensure even footing on icy ground. Piloswine tend to inhabit cold places, such as icy caves, mountainous regions and frozen tundra. It often digs for food buried beneath snow and ice.

In the anime

Major appearances

Dawn's Piloswine

Dawn's Swinub evolved into a Piloswine in Sleepless in Pre-Battle. It later evolved into Mamoswine in A Breed Stampede!.

Pryce's Piloswine

Pryce's Piloswine first appeared in As Cold as Pryce. Pryce thought that his Piloswine had abandoned him when he was a young Pokémon Trainer after the two of them got hit by a Magmar's Fire Blast and thus became cold and bitter. When Pryce found his Piloswine in a cave and frozen solid with a Burn-Healing Herb, Pryce let go of his coldness. Pryce used his Piloswine in the Gym battle against Ash in the following episode.

Other

In EP250, Nurse Joy's Piloswine wore a sled and was used for traveling fast through the Ice Cave.

Minor appearances

Piloswine made its animated debut in Celebi: Voice of the Forest as one of the Pokémon captured in the Poacher's cage at the start of the film. Its appearance in the film was very brief, lasting barely a second.

A Piloswine was among the Pokémon resting in some hot springs in Entei at Your Own Risk.

A Piloswine under the ownership of an unknown Trainer battled in a qualifying match for the Silver Conference in A Claim to Flame!.

In Pichu Bros. in Party Panic during the chase between the Pichu Brothers and a Houndour, the Pichu Brothers disguised themselves as a Piloswine but the Houndour wasn't easily fooled and eventually dismantled the disguise, revealing the Pichu Brothers.

A Piloswine appeared in the opening scenes of Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
DP104 Piloswine Dawn's Pokédex Piloswine, the Swine Pokémon and the evolved form of Swinub. Piloswine's entire body is covered with fur, which makes it hard to see, so it uses its nose to sense its environment instead.
This concludes the entries from the Diamond & Pearl series.

In the manga

Piloswine in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Piloswine appeared in Piloswine Whine under the control of Carl, who used its sheer power to devastate Ecruteak City with an Earthquake. However, Silver defeated it easily with Gold's Politoed.

Trivia

Origin

Piloswine's size and appearance seem to be based off a mix of a wild boar and a yak, whose mountainous habitat echoes that of the Ice Path in Northern Johto. It also share traits with mammoths and mastodons the latter of which is expressed in its later evolution.

Name origin

Piloswine is a combination of pilose (to be covered in distinct hairs) and swine. It may also come from the word "Pil" (Elephant in Hebrew).

Inomoo may be a combination of 猪 inoshishi (boar) and ブーブー bū bū (an onomatopoeia for oinking).
