Swinub Community Day Classic

Submit Feedback or Error

It's time for another Community Day Classic, and this one returns to one of the better Community Days from the past; Piloswine. The best Ice Type in the game back when it was initially released, this was a big deal strictly due to adding accessibility to it for the community at large, not so much its Community Day move. While outclassed nowadays, this still has the potential to be a great Community Day for anyone in need of the unique skills that Mamoswine can bring.
