Piloswine raids are essentially an easier version of Jynx raids, with less threatening moves and wider variety of counters available at your disposal.

Piloswine has access to following moves:

  • Ice Shard Ice (fast)
  • Powder Snow Ice (fast)
  • Stone Edge Rock (1 bar charged)
  • Avalanche Ice (2 bar charged)
  • Bulldoze Ground (2 bar charged)

We strongly recommend attempting Piloswine solo raids during Sunny weather, as your counters and only Bulldoze benefits from it. Piloswine is a great addition to any Dragon counter team, so getting a Level 25 Piloswine is a great way to boost your anti-Dragon team. Especially once Mamoswine becomes available.

Fire (especially when ice moves are involved) and Fighting counters are our pick in terms of DPS, but if you’re duoing Piloswine, it’s ok to go with Water types like Kyogre and Vaporeon.
