Mamoswine Mashes Its Way into Pokémon UNITE

Get ready to ice out the competition in Pokémon UNITE, as Mamoswine is now available to join your team. This powerhouse Pokémon is a Melee Defender, and it’s ready to carry its weight in any battle. This Pokémon begins each match as Swinub, and it evolves into Piloswine at Lv. 6 and Mamoswine at Lv. 10.

Mamoswine’s basic attack becomes a boosted attack with every third attack, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon and leaving them frozen for a short time when it hits. In addition, Mamoswine’s basic attacks deal increased damage for a short time to opposing Pokémon it has frozen with one of its moves. Furthermore, due to Mamoswine’s Ability, Thick Fat, every time the Pokémon deals damage, its Defense and Sp. Defense are increased for a short time (up to three times), and when Mamoswine uses Ice Shard, Icicle Crash, or Ice Fang, its next basic attack becomes a boosted attack. If any of those three 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.

Now let’s look at Mamoswine’s available moves.

Mamoswine’s Moves

At Lv. 1 and Lv. 3, Swinub can learn Ice Shard and Tackle. Ice Shard is a ranged attack that hurls three chunks of ice at a designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. Tackle is a dash attack that has Swinub rush recklessly in a designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and throwing them.

When Swinub reaches Lv. 6 and evolves into Piloswine, Ice Shard can be upgraded into one of two moves—Icicle Crash or Ice Fang.

Icicle Crash is an area attack in which Piloswine drops icicles on a designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon 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 Piloswine’s other moves or boosted attacks, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen. This attack can later be upgraded to increase its damage.

Ice Fang uses Piloswine’s cold-infused fangs to throw the opposing Pokémon that’s closest to Piloswine, dealing damage and leaving the Pokémon frozen for a short time. Piloswine can then choose a direction to slam the thrown Pokémon forward or backward, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen for a short time. This attack can be upgraded to increase the area of effect.

At Lv. 8, Tackle can be evolved into one of two moves—High Horsepower or Earthquake.

High Horsepower is a dash attack that causes Piloswine to rush recklessly in a designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and shoving them. Piloswine then stomps its feet, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them unable to act for a short time. The move can be upgraded to increase Piloswine’s rushing speed and the length of time opposing Pokémon are left unable to act.

The other move, Earthquake, has Piloswine leap in a designated direction and land forcefully, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and pulling them toward Piloswine. The move can be upgraded to decrease the movement speed of opposing Pokémon for a short time when the move hits and increase the move’s pulling power.

Mamoswine’s Unite Move, Mammoth Mash

To truly crush the opposition, make use of Mamoswine’s Unite Move, Mammoth Mash, which it learns at Lv. 10. This area attack has Mamoswine jump to a designated location and become immune to hindrances. Mamoswine then repeatedly stomps the ground, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time with each stomp. The final stomp throws opposing Pokémon in the area of effect.
