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.
