Mienfoo (Japanese: コジョフー Kojofu) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Mienshao starting at level 50.

Biology

Mienfoo is a yellow, bipedal, mustelid-like Pokémon, with round ears, red eyes, and a pink nose with a whisker on each side. Its red arms look similar to flared sleeves, and the paws are yellow. Mienfoo's chest has a small red band, and its pelt piles around its thighs resembling a tunic or robe. Its legs are red, and its yellow tail is also tipped red.

Mienfoo specializes in flowing, speedy, continuous attacks, becoming more precise as it concentrates. Though not very powerful, it can make this up with the number of hits it deals. It also has sharp claws it can use to cut foes. Packs of Mienfoo seclude themselves to mountains to focus on their training. Each pack differs in its kick and chop form. A well-trained Mienfoo is capable of 100 arm chops in just one minute. Mienfoo has a temperamental nature despite its small size. It attacks anyone that comes near it with a flurry of attacks.
