Swampert Mightyena


At first sight, Poochyena takes a bite at anything that moves. Poochyena is an omnivore - it will eat anything. A distinguishing feature is how large its fangs are compared to its body. This Pokémon tries to intimidate its foes by making the hair on its tail bristle out and baring its fangs.

This Pokémon chases after prey until the victim becomes exhausted. However, it may turn tail if the prey strikes back. It has a very tenacious nature. Its acute sense of smell lets it chase a chosen prey without ever losing track.
