Most of the time Drain Punch/HJK is just preference on Mienfoo. It just depends on whether you want it to have a more offensive or defensive role and whether the risk of HJK is worth it especially with Misdreavus being so common.
Also Grimer does seem like it could have its niche in LC. Sand teams will be a serious issue and more often that not render it useless though. A bit more tanky than other defensive mons and shadow sneak seems pretty cool.
