Trivia

  • According to Ken Sugimori, Mienfoo and Mienshao were created to compensate with the shortage of Fighting-types in Generation V. The designers decided to have a fresh take and created this evolution family as most previous Fighting-types are humanoids.

Origin

Mienfoo is based on a weasel and a Kung Fu master.

Etymology

Mienfoo seems to be a combination of "ermine" (a species of weasel) and Kung fu.
