Mightyena (グラエナ) is the 11th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Dark Type, and is known as the Bite Pokémon.

Poochyena's lone ability in the Generation III games is Intimidate. This ability reduces the attack of the opposing Pokémon by one stage when it is entered into battle. This effects both Pokémon in a Double Battle, but is negated by abilities such as Hyper Cutter and Clear Body. Generation IV added a second ability to Mightyena, called Quick Feet. With the acception of Paralysis, when afflicted by a status condition its Speed Stat increases by 50%.

Generation V continues the tradition of adding a new ability to Mightyena, this one available to Dream World Mightyena: Moxie. This ability increases its Attack Stat by one stage each time it defeats an opposing Pokémon.

Poochyena evolve into Mightyena starting at Level 18.

Mightyena is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Mightyena One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Mightyena finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. While its Statistics are mediocre at best (including frail Defenses), its one highlight is access to its Hidden Ability, Moxie, which increases its Attack by one stage each time it KO's an opponent. The more Attack Increases that it gets from this Ability, the more damage it will do with its Physical attacks.

The only way it can get around its somewhat slow Speed is using Sucker Punch, which gets priority and hits hard.
