Poochyena (ポチエナ) is the tenth 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 Run Away. This ability allows it to flee from any battle against a Wild Pokémon unless it is blocked from fleeing due to a move such as Mean Look or an ability such as Arena Trap. Generation IV added a second ability to Poochyena, 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 Poochyena, this one available to Dream World Poochyena: Rattled. This ability increases its Speed Stat by one stage when it gets hit by an attack of either the Bug, Ghost, or Dark Type.

Poochyena can evolve into Mightyena starting at Level 18.

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