001Bulbasaur RG.png Due to special coding in place in the article, the artwork featured on this article will change every year on November 21 and October 15 in celebration of the releases of Gold and Silver in Japan, and Gold and Silver in the United States. This will only affect the artwork shown in the infobox. This changes every year, so when the time comes, here to return to the page and change the display.


Err... This might be an obvious question but what does pilose mean? Glalie lv. X 160HP EX Sheer Cold, Heavy Bizzard, δ species (guy)

The source of the answer is certainly obvious...
It means "covered in distinct hairs". --FabuVinny T-C-S 19:10, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Here's my question. HOW THE HECK IS THAT OBVIOUS?!?!?!?!UkiraGrace611 03:31, 23 March 2008 (UTC)

It ain't.--Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales 10:04, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


If Piloswine is supposed to evolve into Mamoswine with Ancientpower, how can it? It doesn't say what level Piloswine learns Ancientpower! PL12 12:38, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

You have to use the move tutor of the move rediscoverer guy. I don't remember his name. Or is that the move tutor? Well anyway that's how it has to be done.--Davidaipom 18:56, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
Move relearner! This has already been discussed on a User's talkpage--KukiTalk 19:08, 25 May 2008 (UTC)
It can also learn the move by egg.--Tmwps 09:04, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


Has both Piloswine and Swinub gone darker from DP to Platinum???--Wowy 08:50, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

It looks like it has.--DRAGONBEASTX 18:16, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Three one hit knockout moves

Here's a question. Surely if it can learn Icy Wind, surely it should easily be able to learn Sheer Cold? And because of it's Ground type, it should learn Fissure? And considering that it can learn Horn Attack, it should also be able to learn Horn Drill? Surely that would make it the Pokémon able to learn the most One-hit knockout moves tied with Lapras?--Tmwps 09:04, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

It just doesn't work that way. The moves listed on the page, and the subpages for Gens II-III are all the moves it can learn. For some reason we have to abide by what's coded into the games, not what we think would make sense :D — THE TROM — 09:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Ice Fang?

I think this is an error. Piloswine can't learn Ice Fang at level 28 because it can't exist until level 33. Swinub learns Ice Shard at level 28 though, but not Ice Fang. - unsigned comment from MegaNerd18 (talkcontribs)

Nah, it's not an error...Everything exists if you can haxx it in with like an AR or GameShark. --Psyライダー 04:02, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
No, that's no error. It's really like that. Do be aware that all level-up compatability is taken from the actual game code; if the game code had said Ice Shard, it would have never read Ice Fang to begin with. - unsigned comment from Shiningpikablu252 (talkcontribs)
Just for the record, if one were to use the Pomeg glitch to transfer a level 5 Piloswine over to Generation IV and then levelled it up to level 28, it would indeed learn Ice Fang normally. (The same would hold true if it were to evolve into Mamoswine in the interim; the Pomeg glitch makes a level 6 Mamoswine possible.) And there's always the move relearner for these kind of things. - unsigned comment from Shiningpikablu252 (talkcontribs) }


As well as saying that Pryce's pilloswine gets affected by pikachu's thunderbolt, could you also say something about Pachurisu's spark affecting Piloswine (A Breed Stampede). Also with Dawn's Mamoswine getting effected by spark and charge beam from Plusle and Minun (DP 162 [i think]) Chomi 13:29, 22 May 2010 (UTC)


Isn't it Inomuu? I understand that most Americans would spell it that way, but since the pronunciation is the same, why Americanize it? ----Sparen (talk) 22:38, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Pokémon names are trademarked as Romanizations in Japan. These trademarked romanizations are in turn the names which appear on various consumer products such as figurines or plushies. So the correct romanization of a name might not always be the most standard way of romanizing a Japanese word, but it's the one The Pokémon Company uses. --AndyPKMN 23:59, 24 October 2010 (UTC)

Egg move error?

So I was telling one of my friends how you could teach Piloswine Ancientpower even in Gen 2. I wanted to look up the exact method, and the page said it's an egg move, and it can only be passed down by a Dunsparce. Then I got curious how Dunsparce could learn it, and it turns out it's an Egg Move even for him, and it could only be CHAIN BRED. So after a little bit of research, I found out that the real way Piloswine can learn it by breeding is by having a Kabuto, Kabutops, Omastar, Omanyte, or Corsola learn it, then breed it into Wooper, and then breed it into Swinub. Or you can do it with Smeargle. So the page should say that it could be chain bred through Wooper/Quagsire, or be simply bred using Smeargle. Krisi (talk) 22:49, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

It is not an error. If you look at the top of the table, it says Generation V, not Generation II. For Piloswine's Generation II learnset, see Piloswine (Pokémon)/Generation II learnset. ☆The Solar Dragon☆ 23:10, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
I did look at the Gen II table. I guess it has been corrected since. Krisi (talk) 01:00, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, actually, the history of that page says that it has been modified about 20 minutes after I posted this. Krisi (talk) 01:02, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
