When Mawile was first introduced in Generation III, it could have one of two abilities: Hyper Cutter, which prevents the opponent from lowering its Attack stat, but it can still be reduced by one of its own moves; or Intimidate, which reduces the opponent's Attack by one stage upon entering battle, affecting both opponents in a Double Battle.
Generation V added a new Ability to Mawile available to Mawile from the Dream World, the Sheer Force Ability. This ability gives attacks that have a secondary effect a 33% increase in power, but the secondary effect of that attack is lost.
Mawile takes the appearance of a small human child that has a mix between a venus fly-trap and a Piranha Plant from the Super Mario Bros. games growing from its head.
 Gender Differences
Mawile doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.
 New Forme: MegaMawile
In August 2013's issue of CoroCoro Magazine, a new Game Mechanic known as Mega Evolution was revealed, along with six Pokémon that evolve with this method. MegaMawile is the Mega Evolved version of Mawile. It is a Steel/Fairy-Type.
MegaMawile uses the Huge Power Ability, which doubles the power of its attacks.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling

There's a number of different roles that Mawile can perform in this Tier, including Offense, Defense, Utility and Baton Passing boosted Attack and/or Defense Statistics. The role that it can perform can depend on what the team needs, which can include Stealth Rock.
