Pryce's Piloswine is Pryce's main Pokémon.
When he was young, Pryce was a skilled Trainer, winning many battles and also treated his Piloswine like family.
Unfortunately, the two eventually found themselves up against a trainer with a Magmar. Pryce shielded Piloswine from Magmar's Fire Blast but both were badly injured as a result.
Piloswine left the cabin they were staying in to go get some herbs to help cure Pryce's burns. However, it got frozen on the way back and stayed there for several years. Pryce, believing his Piloswine had abandoned him, changed overnight, becoming an angry, bitter man who believed Pokémon and humans did not deserve to be friends.
Several years later, Pryce and Kanto trainer Ash Ketchum found Piloswine frozen in a block of ice. They saw it was holding an herb for healing burns and quickly deduced it left Pryce to get it to treat his injuries, and had not in fact abandoned him, but ended up trapped in the ice and was never able to return. Thanks to Ash's Pikachu and Cyndaquil, Piloswine was freed from its ice prison, and Pryce was overjoyed. His anger and bitterness melted away when he was reunited with his beloved Pokémon.
Piloswine was later used in Ash's Gym Battle where it successfully defeated Ash's Cyndaquil. It nearly defeated Ash's Pikachu before Pryce threw in the towel, forfeiting the match as Piloswine had become tired.
