[SET COMMENTS]

* This set is hit-and-run.
* Hi Jump Kick always 2HKOs Bronzor without any previous damage!
* As long as it doesn't get hit by anything relatively strong, it's undefeatable.
* Drain Punch helps recover Life Orb recoil that Regenerator doesn't catch, plus it's Mienfoo's strongest accurate attack.
* U-turn is pretty strong and lets Mienfoo scout and attack and the same time, plus recover! How excellent.
* Fake Out lets Mienfoo further improve the "hit-and-run" strategy by acting as a priority move, revenge killing move, and general damaging attack.

[ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

* EVs are for maximum power and Speed. The idea is to not get hit, so defensive investment to the extent where Mienfoo needs to sacrifice its offensive stats isn't ideal.
* Hidden Power Ice kills Gligar when Mienfoo has Life Orb so if you want to use it you can.
* Choice Band over Life Orb with Stone Edge or something over Fake Out can work; just watch out for being locked into Hi Jump Kick, since it invites Misdreavus to set up.
* Payback I guess since you have a small chance to survive Misdreavus' offensive pursuits.

Hi Jump Kick on top tier Pokemon:
My set: 18 Atk vs 21 Def & 21 HP (169 Base Power): 16 - 19 (76.19% - 90.48%)

Chance to OHKO after Spikes

Eviolite set: 17 Atk vs 21 Def & 21 HP (130 Base Power): 12 - 15 (57.14% - 71.43%)

Usually won't even 2HKO with their Drain Punch following up

My set: 18 Atk vs 27 Def & 23 HP (169 Base Power): 13 - 16 (56.52% - 69.57%)

Clean 2HKO

Eviolite set: 17 Atk vs 27 Def & 23 HP (130 Base Power): 9 - 12 (39.13% - 52.17%)

0.07% chance to 2HKO. That's less than 1%!

My set: 18 Atk vs 18 Def & 24 HP (169 Base Power): 18 - 22 (75.00% - 91.67%)

41.03% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock!

Eviolite set:17 Atk vs 18 Def & 24 HP (130 Base Power): 13 - 16 (54.17% - 66.67%)

0% chance to OHKO after Stunky is torn apart by the maximum quantity of every possible entry hazard.

My set: 18 Atk vs 18 Def & 20 HP (169 Base Power): 18 - 22 (90.00% - 110.00%)

41.03% to OHKO! Make that 100% with Stealth Rock.

Eviolite set: 17 Atk vs 18 Def & 20 HP (130 Base Power): 13 - 16 (65.00% - 80.00%)

Can't even OHKO after Stealth Rock!


just to give you an idea of Life Orb's power

The set is fine, but I think it should be OO, it really doesnt seem that good. If other QC members think it deserves its own set I will stamp it, but I want to get their opinion first.
