Locations: Evolve Swinub, Snag from Bodybuilder
Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the
Week. Today we’re reviewing Piloswine, the Swine Pokémon.
Piloswine is a decent Pokémon, still underused.
It has a nice attack so physical sweeping is going to be your
best choice. The bad thing about this one is its water weakness.
But still it is a good type combination.
Oblivious is a great ability, uncommon, but very
Being a physical sweeper it does have a very
static move set, if you face one of these. It is almost sure it
has this move combination:
Nature: Adamant (+ Attack, - Special attack).
EV´s: 252 Attack, 129 Defense, 129 Special
- Ice beam
This set takes advantage of ground, rock and
normal types. Ice beam is there just in case. I have seen some
resting Piloswines. Some others like to use toxic instead of ice
When should I use this Pokémon?
It is fun if you have the right team to cover
Piloswine’s abilities. If you have a baton passer Ninjask you
might want to pass speed to this one, that’s going to be a
tremendous advantage for Piloswine
What should I use against this Pokémon?
Water types, unfortunately, Piloswine can’t
handle any of them.
At this point, we already know Piloswine can
evolve, so the new move combinations will be something
interesting to analyze.
Hope you enjoyed.
