Pokémon UNITE

In Pokémon UNITE, Thick Fat is Mamoswine's Ability. When the user deals damage, its Defense and Special Defense are increased for a short time, up to three times. When this Pokémon uses Ice Shard, Icicle Crash or Ice Fang, its next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. In addition, if any of these moves creates a freezing area of effect inside an ally goal zone, it decreases the goal-scoring speed of opposing Pokémon inside that goal zone.
