Mamoswine is coming to Pokemon UNITE—and now we finally know when.

The announcement for Pokemon UNITE's next roster addition, Mamoswine, was published on the game's verified Twitter account on Sept. 24. It was accompanied by a short clip previewing the Pokemon's kit. Unfortunately, until it launches in-game, we won't be able to offer concrete information on what its abilities look like.

Still, we've listed all our current information down below.

When Does Mamoswine Release in Pokemon UNITE?

Mamoswine will be available in Pokemon UNITE on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

We believe Mamoswine will be a defensive character due to its slow movement speed and aggressive melee combat style. Players will likely see Mamoswine guarding a weak attacker or patrolling a goal. Whether or not it outclasses similar choices such as Snorlax remains to be seen.

Mamoswine clearly makes good use of its considerable size and thick hide. One of its attacks, coating its tusks in ice and smashing an ice ball down on its opponent, will likely be its secondary move. The other, a charge, could be its primary move—as any of its three evolutions can do so. We've also been able to determine its Unite Move will be some sort of charge and rampage. It's unclear whether this will feature an auxiliary area of effect (AoE) damage component.

We cannot confirm any names for these moves at the time of writing.

Pokemon UNITE players can also expect a fix for Crustle's inexplicable strength boost shipped with the same update.
