PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • When paired with Avalanche, Ice Shard and Powder Snow are within 0.3% DPS.

  • Avalanche shares type with Piloswine’s fast moves, giving it a solid Ice-type offense.

  • Bulldoze offers STAB, but there’s not much reason to use it on offense.

  • Stone Edge is essentially strictly inferior to Avalanche, with low power and no STAB.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Ice Shard is superior to Powder Snow, having almost twice the defensive DPS.

  • Avalanche is a powerful 2-bar STAB charge move, despite having worse counter coverage.

  • Bulldoze is more likely to be used because it has 2 bars, but Stone Edge is more likely to hit if used. Both provide counter coverage.

PVE Overview

As part of the Ice-type conglomerate, Piloswine benefits from Avalanche with decent bulk and Atk. Its DPS is comparable to that of Articuno’s. It was once a top-pick for Ice-type damage, and an amazing counter to Zapdos raids in particular, but it's been completely overshadowed by its own fully evolved form: Mamoswine. The Twin Tusk Pokemon hit the scene hard, and it's a safe bet that virtually all of those previously powered-up Piloswine have finally attained their destined power.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Powder Snow+Avalanche and Stone Edge

Powder Snow works well with Piloswine due to its 2 DPT (Damage Per Turn) and 4 EPT (Energy Per Turn). This lets it charge up Avalanche (90 Power/45 Energy) and Stone Edge (100 Power/55 Energy) very quickly, both of which are objectively great attacks. However, Avalanche is the real super-star of this set, sporting one of the highest Power:Energy ratios in the game while still coming off of STAB and coming out pretty fast. Stone Edge is included just for coverage.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Fun fact: Piloswine actually out-performs Mamoswine in the Great League due to having a virtually identical moveset and a better stat build at or below 1500 CP. Here, it can take down huge threats such as Dragonite, Lugia, and Altaria with its icy powers. However, while its typing is offensively great, it also leaves it with a laundry list of weaknesses that make it easily picked off by many common Pokemon. It's probably to look into stronger Ice-Types before settling on Piloswine, but it can perform with a bit of support.

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

Once again, Piloswine's stats make it better suited to the CP cap than Mamoswine, causing it to generally pull ahead as a superior option for the Ultra League. Here, Piloswine can beat out Lugia, Dragonite, and both formes of Giratina in a 1x1 match, though most of those wins are a bit narrow. It has good general utility against most Pokemon weak to Ice, though it has to beware of Grass types in particular in that niche. Again; it needs a bit of support to be effective, but Piloswine is a good Pokemon in the league.

Master League: 2 / 5

Impressed that Piloswine is still serviceable in the Master League? Well guess what: it can do even better! Just hit that little button that says "Evolve", and your maxed out Piloswine instantly becomes a 5/5 given the right moves!
