This Mamoswine is an Ice/Ground-type Pokémon owned by Dawn. It was the fifth Pokémon she captured, and her sixth Pokémon overall.


Dawn caught Mamoswine as a Swinub. It was very gluttonous, but friendly to Dawn.

In later episodes, it evolved into Piloswine, then into Mamoswine. Since Mamoswine evolved, it stopped listening to Dawn's orders.

During a battle against a wild Aggron, Mamoswine got injured, but got healed in the process. Since then, Mamoswine obeyed Dawn again.

Mamoswine trained with Piplup as a partner once, but it did not go well. The same went for Pachirisu. Dawn's Cyndaquil was the one to work well the best with Mamoswine. During their practice battle against Zoey, Zoey's Kirlia used Psychic to control her Leafeon's Magical Leaf, defeating both Mamoswine and Cyndaquil.

Dawn started training Mamoswine, but it came up as an disaster. He used Ice Shard aiming to the sky, then it hit on his head, making it breaking into pieces and falls on his nose, which made Dawn's Piplup laugh. Mamoswine tried to take it out, then it hit a tree bark making it bounces it back. The Ice Shard hit on his forehead, Piplup continues laughing. Ash's Pikachu started laughing too, making Mamoswine angry and starts to chase them, Dawn tells him that he had enough of chasing Piplup and Pikachu. Mamoswine has left Dawn, making Dawn worrying and tells him to come back. Ash told them that they shouldn't be laughing at Mamoswine.
