A combination of Ice Shard and Level Ground means that he can either drop his opponents speed on the switch in or just murder them with Ice Shard. Not only that, but he finally has a reasonably powerful physical ice move, with 20 more BP than Ice Fang. So let's look at some potential sets. Choice Band (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Choice Band (open) Choice Band (close) Mamoswine @ Choice Band 152 HP/252 ATK/100 SpD; Adamant Nature Ability: Thick Fat -Earthquake -Icicle Drop -Ice Shard/Level Ground -Stone Edge ________________________ Mamoswine has an incredible STAB combination in Ice and Ground, which is resisted by very few pokemon, and hits super effective on Flying, Grass, Rock, Steel, Electric, Fire, Poison, Dragon and Ground, that's 9 out of 17 types. More than half of them. That kind of coverage combined with 130 base attack is massive. With Thick Fat, a set like this is actually able to survive a Fire Blast from Choice Scarf Heatran, though it will still deal a significant amount of damage, and Mamoswine is by no means a great way of dealing with Heatran, but more Heatran can no longer switch into Ice Shard and threaten to kill back. SuperSwine (Move your mouse to reveal the content) SuperSwine (open) SuperSwine (close) Mamoswine @ Expert Belt 152 HP/252 ATK/100 SpD; Adamant Nature Ability: Thick Fat -Level Ground/Earthquake -Icicle Drop -Ice Shard -Stone Edge ________________________ Level Ground and Ice Shard are a great asset to this set, shutting down things that are faster than Mamoswine either on the switch in or just... whenever. Icicle Drop hits SE on bulkier flying types bar and the one's that aren't hit SE by Icicle Drop will be taken care of by Stone Edge, like Gyarados. With Super Effective hits on 11 out of 17 types, Mamoswine makes great use of Expert Belt. So with all that, Mamoswine hits Flying, Ground, Rock AND Steel for Super Effective, as well as Fire, all of which seem to be integral types in our theoretical Gen V metagame. Feel free to submit more sets and discuss. The one's I've written so far are under the assumption that dream world abilities are breedable.
