What is a viable STAB move for Mienshao in UU?

0 votes

Right now I have Hi Jump Kick but people use protect a lot and I hurt Meinshao more than the enemy. I was thinking about Drain Punch, but I'm wondering if that would have an umph to get the job done.

My Mienshao is a physical attacker, so no special moves please

Hi Jump Kick has amazing power, and even if the opponent uses Protect, you should be able to predict that.

A weaker alternative is Brick Break, as it breaks screens, as well as 75 base power. Drain Punch works well too. 75 base power is pretty good for UU, especially with the extra effect. Although really, Hi Jump Kick is better.

Those are pretty much the only STAB moves that you would want. Low Sweep is an option if you want, a literal "Low Sweep." But use Hi Jump Kick. Try to predict the Protects.

I'm pretty sure it's UU :[
I dunno xD
Mienshao is UU, not OU.
Hi Jump Kick AND Brick Break when they start Protecting so they stop, Hi Jump again, recover with Regenerator if you miss!

If you are looking for physical then go for drain punch as you suggested.It is a good move and you can also heal yourself while battling.But if you want to finish the job then hi jump kick is the way to go.Your choice.
