Piloswine (Japanese: イノムー Inomoo) is a dual-type Ice/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

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 porcine 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. As a result, Piloswine is constantly charging at foes when it moves. The hairs on its back stands up straight as a warning sign for this.

Piloswine's thick fur allows it to survive in harshly cold environments that it inhabits, such as icy caves, mountainous regions and frozen tundra. Its fur is so long that it usually covers its small, hooved legs. Despite the small size of its legs, its hooves ensure even footing on icy ground. Piloswine often digs for food buried beneath snow and ice using its tusks.

Major appearances

Pryce's Piloswine

Pryce's Piloswine first appeared in As Cold as Pryce, thus also marking the species' main series debut. Pryce thought that it abandoned him when he was a young 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 Piloswine in his Gym battle against Ash in the following episode.

Dawn's Piloswine

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

Other

In the banned episode EP250, the Nurse Joy living inside the Ice Cave has multiple Piloswine. They wore harnesses and were used for sledding through the cave.

In The Gates of Warp!, Alternate World Dawn's Mamoswine devolved into Piloswine in a flashback due to Dialga's influence.

Minor appearances

Piloswine debuted in Celebi: The Voice of the Forest, where it was one of the Pokémon captured in a Pokémon poacher's cage at the start of the movie.

In Entei at Your Own Risk, a Piloswine was resting in some hot springs.

In A Claim to Flame!, a Trainer's Piloswine battled in a qualifying match for the Silver Conference.

Trivia

Origin

Piloswine seems to be based on a wild boar with traits of wooly mammoths. It also shares traits with muskoxen and yaks, whose mountainous habitat echoes that of the Ice Path in northern Johto.

Name origin

Piloswine may be a combination of pilose (covered with fine hair) and swine, as well as a play on pile of swine. It may also involve פיל píl (Hebrew for elephant).

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