Mienshao Type: Fighting Stats: 65/ 125/ 60/ 95/ 60/ 105 Mienshao now makes its debut in UU as one of the best leads. It sports a very good base 125 attack stat and 105 speed allowing it to outspeed many common threats in UU such as Flygon, Zapdos, Victini, Shaymin. With the advent of BW2, Mienshao got Reckless which adds another very good ability. The biggest downside to using Mienshao is that he is frail. Sets: Scout Jolly/Naive Item: Life Orb Ability: Regenerator/ Reckless Evs: 4 HP/ 252 Atk/ 252 Spe Moves~ -Fake Out -Stone Edge/ Hidden Power Ice -Hi Jump Kick -U Turn Fake Out helps to get some damage on other mons. Stone Edge is the preferred option to hit Zapdos and Chandelure hard, the purpose HP ice has is for gligar but U Turn can switch out of there. Regenerator helps against Life Orb recoil but now that Reckless is out Hi Jump Kick gets a 20 percent boost if more power is needed. Choiced Jolly/ Naive Item: Choice Band/ Choice Scarf Ability: Reckless/ Regenerator Evs: 252 Atk/ 6 SpD/ 252 Spe Moves~ -Aerial Ace/ Hidden Power Ice -Stone Edge -Hi Jump Kick -U Turn Mienshao's speed and attack stat is what makes it a great choice user. Moveset is pretty standard, but does the job well. Substitute Naive Item: Life Orb/ Leftovers Ability: Reckless Evs: 252 Atk/ 4 SpA/ 252 Spe Moves~ -Substitute -Stone Edge -Hi Jump Kick -Hidden Power Ice This set is to ease prediction if your opponent carries a ghost type to make mienshao fall when using HJK. Also, it helps against blocking status.
