I know it's used for fighting types but peck still wont be very useful. Using earthquake on them would do MORE damage than peck. Maybe you should have giga impact, double edge or superpower instead.
Piloswine (M) @ Evolution Stone
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 64 HP / 252 Atk / 16 Def / 176 SDef
Hardy Nature
- Ice Shard
- Earthquake
- Curse
- Stone Edge
pe- WHY DO YOU EVEN HAVE PECK?!
Peck is a very weak move and is of almost no use. Even Hidden Power Flying is a better choice. I would recommend replacing it with Ice Shard for priority.
WHY DID MY COMMENT BECOME HIDDEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, SERIOUSLY, PECK!? It will have to have pretty high sp. attack for blizzard to be any good(and I would get ice beam anyway instead, its much more practical!). But ill Give you a few Mamoswine movesets, as ive been doing lately!

Physical Sweeper: Hail instead of Peck, and your good, he has enough health to set it up! So hail(For Blizzard), Erathquake( POWER!), Stone Edge(UNLIMITED POWER), Blizzard(plus hail, 100 acc)

Staller: Earthquake(!), Toxic(:)), light Screen(since his defenses are pretty low), and Reflect(since his defenses are pretty low).

Hope This Helps!:)

I don't think you need swords dance for unlimited power on a mamoswine. And yes blizzard will be strong even though his special attack is worse.
As I said, mine is fairly well EV trained in Sp. Attack. Maybe I should get another, one with Snow Cloak for added Hail power.
Yours is still good movesets Swampert. However, I don't like Swords DAnce on every Pokemon, Mamoswine can take most foes down already.
Wait, it can't even learn Swords Dance.
It can learn Curse however, which can work great with this moveset:

Curse, Avalanche, Toxic, Earthquake. An Offensive-Defensive moveset. Maybe I'll try that for this one.
Why not Avalanche since you will act last with 80 base speed? And there's also curse on this one.
Good damage, it's physical, it's ice... you get 180 power (with STAB) if you've been hitten before.
Nobody even talks about avalanche... I would like to know why :(
I mean, you can endure some hits in order to blow up your enemy. It would be like a half-kamikaze Sweeper Mamos...

Here's my moveset:

Ability: Snow Cloak
Item: BrightPowder or Life Orb

  • Hail (raises evasion, great with BrightPowder)
  • Earthquake (duh!)
  • Ice Fang (best physical ice move that Mamo can learn)
  • Superpower (covers Rock with super-effective and other weaknesses with regular effectiveness)
by
icicle crash is the best physical move (best power) and if u set up hail u don't have to care for the 85 accuracy on icicle crash

This guy has seen a TREMENDOUS use ever since the release of the Therian formes of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus.

Mamoswine (M) @ Choice Band

Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Ice Shard
  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake
  • Icicle Spear/Crash

I'd change Stone Edge to Superpower but I love this otherwise.

FEARSWINE.

Mamoswine @ Focus Sash (Level 1)

Trait: Snow Cloak

EVs: 252 Speed. That's it.

Hardy Nature

  • Endeavor
  • Ice Shard
  • None
  • None

For use in the Hail. Doesn't work very well against Ice types. Use him on a Hail team, but not against a Hail team. Baton Pass may be a useful +6 Evasion pass to him, for reusing FEAR.

Isn't Mamoswine on level 1 illegal?
Not on PO. We can test, if you want.
Is it supported on servers?
seriously.

VCG 2015 Assault Vest Mamoswine

[email protected] Vest
enter image description here
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs:252 Spd, 252 Atk, 4 Sp.D
Nature: Jolly

  • -Earthquake (STAB, multi-hitting move)
  • -Rock Slide (Further multi target move)
  • -Icicle Crash (STAB and dragon coverage)
  • -Knock Off (Powerful move, wrecks item obusers, like Hydreigon)

by
Well my Mamoswine is always getting outsped, so for slow Mamoswines I'd do Avalanche over Icicle Crash, because with Mamoswine's speed it won't flinch anything since that 'anything' went first lol besides avalanche has 120 base power after Mamoswine tanks a hit.

Now for the best set the sweeper DUN DUN DUHHHHHHHHHHH! nature Jolly, Evs 4hp, 252attack, 252 speed.

Ice shard(STAB makes up for low speed and is actually pretty powerful becuase of his great attack stat)

E-quake(STAB No Physical ground type sweeper is complete without it)

Stone edge(Coverage)

Hail(Make him an unhitable mammoth!)

by
Why stone edge? I get that it’s got a high crit ratio and all, but if it’s for coverage, the only weakness of Mamoswine’s that will be covered with it is fire, which is already covered by earthquake. Also, you could go with giga impact to finish off enemies if your Mamoswine doesn’t have the ability snow cloak instead of hail...

Lead Mamoswine

Mamoswine - Jolly Nature (^Speed -Sp Atk) # Life Orb
+ 252 Atk EVs / 252 Speed EVs / 6 Def EVs

  • Ice Shard (Great priority along with a last hit before you get KO'ed)

  • Earthquake (Crazy damage!)

  • Stealth Rock (If you get a chance to set up, yay!)

  • Rock Slide / Stone Edge (Varies upon your style, with more power less accuracy, or less power more accuracy.)

Ok this is the DW set I use

Mamoswine

Ability: Thick fat(No fire weakness!)

Nature: Jolly

Evs: 252 Attack, 252 speed, 6 hp

item: icicle plate

Ice-Shard: the perfect counter to choice Chomp

Earthquake: STAB

Stone edge/Rock slide/stealth rock: power/more reliable/entry hazard

Icicle crash: finally a decently power physical ice type move

Item: Evolite
Ability: Thick-fat
Nature: Brave/Adamant
EVs: 200 S.Defense, 140 Defense, 170 Hp


Curse
Amnesia
Ice-shard
Earthquake


Curse and Amnesia are for boosting. Ice-shard is for STAB priority. Earthquake is STAB. This is a tank Piloswine.

Good job. I use this same exact set except I use Icicle Crash instead of Superpower.
0 votes
  • Ability: Snow Cloak/Thick Fat- evasion rise with hail or lowered power of fire and ice moves either ability is great
  • Item: Icy Rock/Icicle Plate
  • Icicle Crash/Avalanche- IC has the most power out of its ice physical moves and avalanche's power will increase due to lower speed and high attack from curse
  • Earthquake- great STAB power
  • Curse/Hail- Curse will boost avalanche because it makes u go last and boosts attack and defense, Hail increases ur SpD and the power of its ice moves
  • Stone Edge- great move to beat a number of types
  • If u go with Snow Cloak stick with Icicle Crash and Hail, if u choose Thick Fat either set works but hail set works better w/ snow cloak for obvious reasons

I like your moveset but utilize his attack a bit more and his low speeds. Taking advantage of them will be very good and make him much better.

Mamoswine:
Ability: Snow Cloak
Item: BrightPowder
Nature: Brave (+Atk,-Spd)
Characteristic: +Attack
Moveset:
Avalanche - STAB, doubles damage when users takes damage first so it compliments his low speeds
Earthquake - STAB, powerful, accurate
Stone Edge/Rock Slide - Coverage, choose between more power or accuracy
Hail/Curse - Hail if you have no hail lead. If so, Curse to lower speed for better chance of doubling Avalanche's damage and boosting it with raised Attack and Defense

Three Movesets... Oneis Special and One is Physical and if you want you could do mixed.

Mamoswine Adamant @Focus Band

  • Earthquake: Stab. Duh... Coverage for Fire , Steel types.

  • Ice Fang: STAB. Good move >.>

  • Peck: Coverage for... Grass.

  • Stone Edge: Good mve OFC. Coverage for Fire.

Physical ^^

Special moveset.

Earth Power: STAB. Good move. Coverage for Fire.

Blizzard: STAB. Good move. Coverage for Grass.

AncientPower: Good move... low attack tho... Coverage for Fire.

Hail: Good I guess...

Mixed moveset.

Earthquake: Mixed moveset only.

Ice Fang: Mixed moveset only.

AncientPower: Mixed moveset only.

Endeavor: Good move for low HP?

Ehhhh.... Good luck >.> All I have to say.

This is my opinion on the moveset for Mamoswine,

Ability: Snow Cloak

Moveset:

Earthquake (STAB and deals with fire type)

Rock slide/stone edge (also deals with fire type
and Flying type)

Ice shard (since Mamoswine has a really high attack stat, ya)

Hail (Because of Snow cloak,his evasion will raise)

I wouldn't call that a move set very suitable for the bulky, physical powerhouse that is Mamoswine. This is the set I run and it's probably not perfect but it works well for me and has gotten me out of some tricky situations. (And really, Peck!?)

Bulky Physical Sweeper

Mamoswine (M) @ Expert Belt
Ability: Thick Fat
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Nature: +Atk, -SpAtk

  • Ice Shard
  • Earthquake
  • Iron Head
  • Stone Edge / Rock Slide

This is my favorite set; Ice Shard is great priority and still hits hard with Mamoswine's unbelievable attack boosted by its nature. It takes care of most pesky dragons. Earthquake is a must. Iron Head is great coverage for Fairies, as well as any Rocks that Earthquake can't hit. (Also hits other Mamoswines harder than Stone Edge). Stone Edge is amazing for other Ices, Flyings, Bugs, Fires, and general coverage. This move set makes good use of Expert Belt because you will most likely have at least one super effective attack to choose from, and if you don't then you have earthquake to fall back on.

BTW, you shouldn't be sending Mamoswine out against fighting types anyways.

This is the Mamoswine that I use:

Thick Fat
Weakness Policy
Naughty (+Att, -Sp. Def.)
252 HP/252 Att./4 Sp. Att.

Ice Shard
Endure
Earthquake
Freeze-Dry

With this set, you essentially fire off Earthquakes until a Pokemon who you're weak against comes in, then you use Endure and have your Weakness Policy activated, after which you can use a +2 Ice Shard to go down fighting!
Freeze-Dry is best used against a Water-type foe after it activates your Weakness Policy (as long as you survive the hit, due to not using Endure that turn, or you know you'll out-speed it the next turn).

I've used Mamoswine (Physical) a lot and I always try to get this moveset for my Mamoswine:
Earthquake - STAB and its OP
IcicleCrash - Good physical ice move
And sadly Peck - Cuz its at least ... something
LightScreen - Its special def sucks and if you can get a free light screen of it wont be such a big problem

As for the item it would be a sitrus berry if it takes damage when setting up the light screen

Well My set isn't much different, but I mean Mamoswine makes a nice stealth rock setter and a GREAT dragon killer with ice shard as we all know almost all the pseudo legendary dragons have a quad weakness to ice. Anyway onto the set!

Mamoswine @Leftovers/Life Orb/(Any item you want. Its your call not mine)
Ability: If you can try to get Thick Fat but the normal abilities work too.
Moveset:
Stealth Rock
Ice Shard
Icicle Crash
Earthquake
Rocks are for sash breaking so you can sweep ALOT easier. Ice Shard is if you need to destroy a Mega Salamence or Haxorus (Any sweeper horribly weak to ice) Icicle Crash and Earthquake for STAB.
