I have been using Mienshao in-game and it is a great sweeper and has a fantastic ability in Regenerate. Conkeldurr has higher attack but is much, much slower and won't take a SpDef hit like Psychic. Plus you already have 3 slow bulky Pokemon on your team already.

I would go for Mienshao with Hi Jump Kick/Stone Edge/Acrobatics/U-Turn.

Other movesets are here, as you should know:

For the rest of your team, you could consider giving Chandelure Hex instead of Shadow Ball. If you're using Will-O-Wisp then Hex is bp 100 as opposed to SB's 80. For Escavalier maybe try Reversal instead of Iron Defense (its defense is already high enough).

The rest of your team is kinda lacking in speed so I think mianshao will suit your team better

adamant or jolly nature [i recommend jolly] @ life orb

with regenerator ability

hi-jump kick/drain punch for power or regeneration

U-turn to evade psychic attacks

stone edge for coverage

fake out for free damage /aerial ace to take out bugs/acrobatics if you use berry anything you want.

No,the nature should be adamant because Mienshao has no special attacks 0_0
dude jolly increases speed and decreases special attack.

You'll want Conkeldurr, which is stronger of the two, and is also quite bulky. Adamant Nature, 252 Attack, 252 Defense, 4 HP for EVs. Item Life Orb. Moveset of Mach Punch/Drain Punch, Bulk Up, Stone Edge, Payback

Why was this voted down? This is a valid answer because I think Conkeldurr is better than Mienshao. Even if you do not think this, you can't vote this down because it is my opinion.
