I have five Pokemon in my team already. Cyndaquil is my starter. What is a good moveset for Mamoswine if it is good?

Noctowl Lv 29(shadow ball, fly, confusion, uproar)

Best answer
  • Incredible Attack stat

  • Ok defenses, being 110 / 80 / 60

  • Meh Special Attack

  • Ok Speed

  • Has access to moves like Thrash, Earthquake and Blizzard


All that said, here's a suggested moveset for your Mamoswine

Mamoswine @Never-Melt Ice (boosts Ice-type STAB)

Mamoswine
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang / Avalanche
- Rock Slide / Stone Edge
- Return / Endure / Protect


EDIT: Now that I know the rest of your team, you don't really need Mamoswine. You've already got a ground-type, Quagsire / Noctowl handles the ground-type that Mamoswine does as well, Ampharos handles the Flying-types, and Quilava handles the grass-types.

But if you still want Mamoswine even though the only type it covers that the rest of your team can't is Dragon, then by all means go ahead. Mamoswine is a pretty solid team member.

Hope I helped, and happy playing!

Why are Endure and Protect good choices?
It was more filler, and sometimes they can be useful

Assuming you can trade, Golem and to a lesser extent Steelix are both better Ground types. Their pre-evolutions can be obtained far earlier than Mamoswine, plus they get good STAB and coverage moves without breeding. Nidoking/queen are also both good Ground types that can be obtained before Mamoswine. Lapras is a good Ice type, and is debatably better than Mamoswine as well. It can only be obtained on Fridays, however. Mamoswine can be a pain to evolve, and it doesn't have the best of movepools.

You should really only use Mamoswine if you want a physical Ice type, or don't want another Ground or Ice type. It comes quite late in the Johto part of the game, and all the other Pokemon I mentioned can be obtained earlier (though a Moon Stone may be tricky to come by).

Hope I helped!

I dont have a probe for that. I have a heart scale for it to learn ancient power again.
That's good, but I still recommend one of the other Pokemon I listed first and foremost. Mamoswine works, but it's obtained very late, and it takes a while to bring up to par with the rest of your team.
