Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Ice Shard is Mamoswine's first move as Swinub. The user hurls 3 chunks of ice at the designated location, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. If an enemy is hit by all three chunks, they're left frozen for a short time. After evolving into Piloswine at level 5, this move is replaced by either Icicle Crash or Ice Fang.
