We've put together a brief guide on how trainers can evolve their Piloswine into a Mamoswine in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

As one of the handfuls of Pokemon to receive a new evolution in Generation IV, it was all but foretold that Mamoswine would be making an appearance in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. It's clear that this Pokemon species has been roaming the vast icy landscapes of Sinnoh for quite some time—even back when the region was still known as Hisui.

Here's how to add one to your team.

How to Evolve Piloswine into Mamoswine

Trainers can evolve their Piloswine into Mamoswine once it learns Ancient Power.

In Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Piloswine learns Ancient Power at level 34. It masters the move about 10 levels later at level 45. To prompt this species to evolve, trainers must change its move set so that Ancient Power is one of its four moves and then level it up at least once. This will prepare Piloswine for evolution.

As it is the middle evolution in a three-branch tree, trainers may wish to capture Piloswine's pre-evolved form, Swinub, and evolve it fully from there. Swinub and Piloswine can be found in the Alabaster Icelands at Bonechill Wastes, Avalugg's Legacy, and Avalanche Slopes.

Also known as the "Twin Tusk" Pokemon due to its two large tusks, Mamoswine has reportedly roamed the planet for a "long, long time." Paintings of it are often found inside cave walls. According to reports, its tusks tend to grow larger and more impressive as the weather gets colder. Laventon suggests this species reached its pinnacle during the Ice Age.

"I suspect that Hisui's frigid climate is in harmony with Mamoswine's constitution, thus awakening hidden potential," he writes.

Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #214.
