Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players may have a Piloswine and are wondering how to evolve it into Mamoswine.

The release of the remakes of Nintendo's 2006 Pokémon Diamond and Pearl have excited many new and long-time fans of Pokémon. As more players catch their favorite Pokémon and continue to progress in the new games, here is a guide that can help players evolve Piloswine.

Piloswine is the evolution of Swinub. Introduced with Generation IV Pokémon, all evolutions of Swinub are consistent with its Pokémon type: Ice and Ground. The final evolution of Swinub, Mamoswine, is considered the wooly mammoth-type Pokémon: standing 8 ft. tall and weighing 641.5 lbs.

Evolving Piloswine to its final evolution, Mamoswine, is very similar to how one would evolve Pokémon Yanma to Yanmega in the games. To evolve Swinub to Piloswine in Pokémon Brilliant DIamond and Shining Pearl, Swinub must reach level 33.

Once Swinub evolves into Piloswine, the Pokémon must learn or know Ancient Power, a Rock-type move. If Piloswine already knows Ancient Power at this point, the next time the Pokémon levels up, it will evolve into Mamoswine.

Typically, Piloswine and Swinub's base moves will include Ancient Power. If Ancient Power is forgotten, trainers can visit the Move Reminder in Pastoria City. There, Piloswine can relearn the move in exchange for a Heart Scale.
