If you are wondering whether there is a shiny Mawile or not, the good news is a shiny Mawile does exist in Pokemon Go, and it has a pink appearance instead of the regular green.
When it comes to Mawile’s moves Fire Fang and Ice Fang are both good quick move options depending on the situation. While Ice Fang is a good option for raids Fire Fang is great for PvP battles. Along with that, Power-up Punch is something that you should definitely have as it’s not only one of the best moves, but also raises the attack stat. Lastly, you can choose anyone between Iron Head or Play Rough, according to your preference. Iron Head is more versatile, and Play Rough is good against Fairy types.
