Of all the pure Fighting-types in Black and White, Mienfoo and Mienshao are the most elegant. Although Fighting-types are normally purely offensive, the Regenerator ability works beautifully in conjunction with Mienshao's awesome speed stat. Paired with the Bug-type move U-turn, Mienshao can function as a scout for your team, simultaneously doing damage with U-turn and regaining health while switching out.

    Personally, I think he looks like a Winnie the Pooh the did too much kung fu.

    I never even noticed this guy the first time around. That's how unremarkable it is. But that attack is high... you gotta win big or you'll lose hard.

    I like Mienshoa's design but im confused. Is that a shirt or just baggy skin?
