Females of both breeding stages give birth to about four, sometimes two or six, baby Swinub. The mother moves little when the babies are still very young, to avoid crushing them; she relies on other members of the herd to bring her food. Even when they grow old enough to follow her on foraging trips, all the herd members must tread carefully - quite literally. Eventually, however, the Swinub grow old enough to avoid the footsteps of their larger kin, as well as being able to find food and dodge predators, on their own. The usually stay with the herd their whole lives, though, unless they are male.

These family herds wander through tundra and northern pine forests, foraging for food as they go. When they strip an area of most of its food, they simply move on to the next one. When meeting other herds, they either ignore each other if not related or interact like old friends if they do.

Swinub are valued by humans for their sense of smell; it has often been used to find hot springs. Swinub are also used to find valuable species of fungi; however, canine Pokémon are usually preferred for this job, as they don’t eat the fungi like Swinub are prone to do.

Mamoswine have been capturing the human imagination for perhaps longer than any non-legendary Pokémon. They are a common sight in cave paintings, and to this day they are iconic symbols of the ice ages, much as Tyrantrum is a symbol of the age of dinosaur Pokémon. Before their rediscovery they were top candidates for testing early fossil-resurrection technologies, and afterwards a news sensation was caused when one was thawed out, miraculously alive, from a block of ice. (It was then introduced into one of the rediscovered herds.) Mamoswine are also known for their extremely high intelligence, which nears that of humans. They are popular in pop-cultural depictions of the ice ages, and one famous fictional one in an [[IceAge animated film series]] has teamed up with prehistoric relatives of Vigoroth and Luxray, among others.

Piloswine are more pugnacious, partially because their poor vision means they tend to charge at random. When a Pilowswine’s hair rises up, it’s about to charge. They often slash at what thye’re charging at with their tusks to do increased damage. While these attacks aren’t usually fatal, and are very rare in Piloswine raised from the Swinub stage, they can still cause trauma, heavy bleeding, and broken bones.

Mamoswine are best reserved for more experienced Trainers, since they can be very dangerous – partially because their large size means they can unintentionally crush things. Additionally, Mamoswine are very intelligent, and can grow disobedient when they don’t like their trainer for whatever reason. However, most dangerous of all is the “musth” period that males go through about once a year; this cases them to attack anything that moves, and is caused by glands on the sides of their heads that excrete massive amounts of aggression-related hormones. It is highly recommended that these glands be removed as soon as a Piloswine evolves, in order to minimize the danger.

Mamoswine are more herbivorous than their pre-evolutions; they feed mostly on grass, leaves, and pine needles, using their oversized tusks to sweep away snow. However, their large size means they must feed on similarly large amounts of food, and migrating herds of Mamoswine can strip away large swaths of plant life. However, when they want meat they can take down pretty much anything smaller unless it has a type advantage; the only creatures that prey on them in turn are the occasional cold-climate Steelix.
