Swinub (Japaneseウリムー Urimoo) is a dual-type Ice/Ground Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves into Piloswine starting at level 33, which evolves into Mamoswine when leveled up while knowing Ancient Power.

Biology

Living in frigid temperatures, Swinub is covered in dense, brown, striped hair to keep it warm. The hair is so shaggy that it often covers its tuft-like small legs, making it appear like a legless lump. Swinub’s eyes appear as if they are perpetually closed. Swinub uses its pink, pig-like nose to dig through mud and snow, looking for anything edible. Occasionally, it will come across hot springs while scouring the ground. Its favorite food is a type of mushroom that grows beneath dead grass, though it also eats Berries. When a Swinub finds an attractive smell, it will run desperately to find out the source of the aroma. It inhabits cold places, such as icy caves, mountainous regions and frozen tundra.

Trivia

 
Swinub's eyes in Pokémon Adventures
  • Swinub has the lowest base stat total of all Ice-type Pokémon. This includes the lowest base Special Attack and Special Defense among Ice-type Pokémon.
  • The only time that Swinub's eyes have been seen open was during the battle between Pryce and Erika in the Round Bringing up Bellossom from Pokémon Adventures when Pryce ordered his to dodge Erika's Skiploom's attack.
  • Swinub is one of the few Pokémon with the same sprite in both Gold and Silver.
  • Swinub is the only Pokémon that can be resistant to damage from all types of weather effects, including Shadow Sky, without the aid of an Ability.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver coding, it is revealed that Swinub has Mud Shot listed as a "new HGSS" Egg move, but it could already learn this move by breeding since Generation III.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Swinub and its evolutions.
    • Swinub and its evolutions are also the only Pokémon weak to the types of all three starter Pokémon.

Origin

Swinub's size and appearance seem to be based on a mix of a Peruvian guinea pig and a wild boar piglet. It may also be based on wordplay of the groundhog. Both are similar in characteristics and behavior, while "Ground hog" describes Swinub's type and species quite well. Swinub also resembles the Marsupial mole.

Name origin

Swinub is a combination of swine and nub (referring to its lump-like nose).

Urimoo may be a combination of 瓜坊 uribō (a wild boar piglet) and ブーブー bū bū (an onomatopoeia for oinking).
