Done Mienfoo (LC)

Mienfoo @ Eviolite
Ability: Regenerator
Level: 5
EVs: 156 HP / 196 Def / 116 SpD
Relaxed Nature
IVs: 29 Spe
- Fake Out
- High Jump Kick
- Knock Off
- U-turn

This slower Mienfoo set serves as a bulky pivot, dropping the conventional 17 Speed in order to provide slow U-turn support to more fragile teams. Mienfoo uses a combination of Fake Out, Knock Off, and High Jump Kick to wear down opposing teams, then uses U-turn where a teammate would have a more beneficial matchup. Mienfoo uses 10 Speed to use U-turn after Mareanie and opposing Mienfoo act. Life Orb Diglett is an excellent partner to Mienfoo, trapping Mareanie and non-Eviolite Mienfoo after U-turn. Diglett can also use Final Gambit to always KO opposing Mienfoo and Beat Up to remove Psychic-types that threaten Mienfoo like Abra and Galarian Ponyta. Some wallbreakers that appreciate Mienfoo’s slow U-turn are Carvanha, Abra, and Choice Scarf Porygon; these three Pokémon also threaten Koffing, which can deny Mienfoo Regenerator recovery with Neutralizing Gas and take Eviolite with Thief.

This slower Mienfoo set serves as a bulky pivot, dropping the conventional 17 Speed in order to provide slow U-turn support to more fragile teams. Mienfoo uses a combination of Fake Out, Knock Off and High Jump Kick to wear down opposing teams, then uses U-turn once a teammate would have a more beneficial matchup. Mienfoo uses 10 Speed to underspeed Pokémon like opposing Mienfoo and Mareanie and slow U-turn out. Life Orb Diglett is an excellent partner to Mienfoo, trapping Mareanie and Eviolite-less opposing Mienfoo after a slow U-turn. Diglett also has access to Beat Up, allowing it to remove dangerous Psychic-types like Abra and Galarian Ponyta that can do heavy damage to Mienfoo. Mention that Diglett can also guarantee the removal of threats like Mienfoo with Final Gambit+U-Turn chip Some wallbreakers that appreciate Mienfoo’s ability to bring them in safely with a slow U-turn are Carvanha, Abra, and Scarf Porygon; these three Pokémon also threaten Koffing, which can deny Mienfoo Regenerator recovery with Neutralizing Gas and Thief its Eviolite.

This slower Mienfoo set serves as a bulky pivot, dropping the conventional 17 Speed in order to provide slow U-turn support to more fragile teams. Mienfoo uses a combination of Fake Out, Knock Off, (comma) and High Jump Kick to wear down opposing teams, then uses U-turn once where a teammate would have a more beneficial matchup. Mienfoo uses 10 Speed to underspeed Pokémon like opposing Mienfoo and Mareanie and slow U-turn out use U-turn after Mareanie and opposing Mienfoo act. Life Orb Diglett is an excellent partner to Mienfoo, trapping Mareanie and Eviolite-less opposing non-Eviolite Mienfoo after a slow U-turn. Diglett can also use Final Gambit to remove opposing Mienfoo after a slow U-turn, without even requiring the removal of the Mienfoo’s Eviolite always KO opposing Mienfoo and Beat Up to remove Psychic-types that threaten Mienfoo like Abra and Galarian Ponyta. Diglett, finally, also has access to Beat Up, allowing it to remove dangerous Psychic-types like Abra and Galarian Ponyta that can do heavy damage to Mienfoo. Some wallbreakers that appreciate Mienfoo’s ability to bring them in safely with a slow U-turn are Carvanha, Abra, and Choice Scarf Porygon; these three Pokémon also threaten Koffing, which can deny Mienfoo Regenerator recovery with Neutralizing Gas and Thief its take Eviolite with Thief.
