Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Icicle Crash is Mamoswine's first move. It is obtained by evolving into Piloswine at level 5 and upgrading Ice Shard into it instead of Ice Fang. The user drops icicles on the designated location, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. The final icicle shatters after a set amount of time or when hit by the user's other moves or boosted attacks, dealing damage to enemies in the area of effect and leaving them frozen. If the icicle is shattered by Tackle or High Horsepower, the ground is covered in ice, which increases the movement speed of allies that run over it. At level 11, the final icicle leaves enemies hit unable to act for a short time.
