I don't know if this will make any sense, but I think it might be worth our time to consider suspecting Mienfoo. Mienfoo is probably the best pokémon in LC right now, it still has all the tools it had last gen that made it great. The deletion of moves didn't really affect Mienfoo, because it didn't run hidden power and nothing ran hidden power (or pursuit) for Mienfoo. What did change however is that Gastly got banned and Spritzee got worse, which means High Jump Kick is way less risky of a move to use. Pokémon like Foongus or Mareanie can be worn down if they are hit by Knock Off and then have to switch into Mienfoo again, especially if it runs a Reckless set. This also means it's breaking and cleaning capabilities with a Choice band or Scarf respectively have also gotten a lot more dangerous, as it requires less team support to make these sets work effectively. Meanwhile, it's bulky Regenerator sets still work just as well as last generation, so you can still just U-turn out of any bad matchup without really getting punished for it. The deletion of Z-moves means neither Onix nor Vullaby can be as threatening as it could be without a boost, as both could viably run a STAB Z-move to increase their power. This makes the window to punish U-turn even smaller, practically never outweighing the health regained by Regenerator. Mienfoo's main competition, Timburr, has also not been as effective this generation, which makes it so that there is really no downside to running Mienfoo. I am aware that this does not make Mienfoo broken in the traditional sense, but a pokémon with little to no negative 1-on-1 matchups depending on its set, with unpredictability between those sets and practically no downside to running it is worth looking into in my opinion.
