  • Beating Team Leaders like Blanche, Candela, and Spark.
  • By spinning PokeStops and Gyms.
  • From certain Field Research tasks.
  • From the Research Breakthrough Box earned after completing Field Research tasks for seven days.

Can Mamoswine be shiny in Pokemon Go?

Yes, shiny Mamoswine is available in Pokemon Go, and you can get it by evolving a shiny Swinub.

You should note that the shiny Piloswine does not spawn in the wild. The odds of encountering a shiny Swinub in Pokemon Go are 1 in 522.

Best Mamoswine PvP moves in Pokemon Go

The best PvP moves for Mamoswine in Pokemon Go are Powder Snow with Avalanche and High Horsepower.

The Fast Move Powder Snow offers impressive energy gains with 4.00 EPT (Energy Per Turn), helping Mamoswine use its Charged Moves quickly. Avalanche is its go-to move, dishing out 90 damage at just 45 energy. This Ice-type combination makes Mamoswine one of the best counters for Dragon-type Pokemon in the Master League.

High Horsepower is a fantastic Ground-type Charged Move that also gets STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus), getting wide coverage against many threats, including the ever-rampant Steel-types.

Best Mamoswine PvE moves in Pokemon Go

The best PvE moves for Mamoswine in Pokemon Go are Powder Snow and Avalanche.

Mamoswine is one of the best Ice-type PvE Pokemon in the game, dealing massive DPS (Damage Per Second) while boasting good bulk. It is often the go-to counter for Dragon-type Raid Bosses that are double weak to Ice-type attacks.

You can also invest in Shadow Mamoswine, whose 20% damage boost makes it the best Ice-type species in Pokemon Go. Just make sure you dodge attacks in Raid battles, as Shadow species also get a 20% nerf to their bulk.
