Appearances

Anime

Dawn's Swinub.

In the anime, Dawn acquires a Swinub she met in Mr. Backlot's garden, after it saved her and the group's Pokémon from Team Rocket. This Swinub eventually evolved into a Piloswine and then into a Mamoswine two episodes later. Now at this stage, it has acquired gigantic strength, but has also become very aggressive towards Dawn and her Pokémon. Dawn is still eager to train it, however. As revealed in the Pokémon Anime, Swinub has an enormous appetite.

Trivia

  • As seen in Spring Fever and Hot Springing a Leak!, Swinub are able to smell out hot water straight from the source.
    • This, however, is canon only for the anime, and might not be faithful to the games.

Origin

Swinub is a cross between a mole and a wild piglet.

Name origin

Swinub is a combination of "swine" and "nub", referring to its nose.
