Mamoswine Coming to Pokémon Unite Next Week, September 29

Pokémon Unite has been making headlines with its recent launch on iOS and Android. The game had already made a name for itself on the Switch, and with the mobile launch has managed to garner a massive player base in a matter of days. Recent updates for the game also featured a brand new Season 2 Battle Pass, in-game events, and even cross-platform play.

The official Twitter account has just confirmed the addition of Mamoswine in the game. The Pokémon was teased previously in the game alongside Sylveon, however, the latter’s release is still under work. Some leaks have also been circling around regarding this Pokémon’s skill set which we have discussed below.

Release Date:

This new Pokémon was confirmed with Pokémon Unite’s latest tweet that assured players to expect it to drop on September 29. If you are clueless about the new Pokémon, here are some basics to get you up to date before its release:

Mamoswine – Pokémon Overview:

As seen in the trailer, the Pokémon will use ice to freeze enemies and leave them open to attack. Mamoswine is a bulky Ground/Ice-type and judging from the gameplay, he looks to be a disruptive tank, capable of pushing and throwing enemies aside. He’ll likely possess high defense and attack attributes but will painfully lack in movement and agility.

Move Sets

Although the Move Sets for the hero haven’t been confirmed, there are some rumors going on with the potential of being true. Here is what we could dig:

Early Levels

  • Tackle : Has the user rush recklessly in the designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and throwing them.
  • Ice Shard : Hurls three chunks of ice at the designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. If an opposing Pokémon is hit by all three chunks, it is left frozen for a short time.

Middle Levels

  • Ice Fang : Uses cold-infused fangs to throw the opposing Pokémon closest to the user, dealing damage and leaving the Pokémon frozen for a short time. The user can then designate a direction to slam the thrown Pokémon forward or backward, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen for a short time.
  • High Horse Power: Has the user rush recklessly in the designated direction, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon it hits and shoving them. The user then stomps its feet, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them unable to act for a short time. This stomping deals increased damage to frozen opposing Pokémon.
  • Icicle Crash: Drops icicles on the designated location, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time. The final icicle shatters after a set amount of time or when hit by the user’s other moves or boosted attacks, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and leaving them frozen. If the icicle is shattered by Tackle or High Horsepower, the ground is covered in ice, which increases the movement speed of ally Pokémon that run over it.
  • Earthquake : Has the user leap up in the designated direction and then land forcefully, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and pulling them toward the user.

Unite Move

  • Mammoth Mash : Has the user jump to the designated location and become immune to hindrances. The user then repeatedly stomps the ground, dealing damage to opposing Pokémon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time with each stomp. The final stomp throws opposing Pokémon in the area of effect.
