Mienshao @ Life Orb

Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk) / Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)

  • Fake Out
  • Hi Jump Kick
  • Stone Edge / HP Ice ( with Naive )
  • U-turn

This guy makes a great lead. On the very first turn, he can use Fake Out, which is basically free damage. After that, if you are threatened by the opponent, you can U-turn out to a counter. What makes him so great is that the Life Orb recoil you take from Fake Out & U-turn is all healed off by his awesome ability, Regenerator. Hi Jump Kick is an absurdly powerful STAB move that deals massive damage to any non Ghost type. Stone Edge gives him great coverage, hitting Flying and Bug types for super effective damage. Alternatively, HP Ice can be used with a Naive nature and Special Attack EVs to hit Gliscor, Landorus, and Dragons for massive damage ( credit to Mew :3 ).

I suggest 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd with Naive and HP Ice over Stone Edge.
Oh, true. I use this in UU, so HP Ice isn't so much of a necessity.
Now everyone will use that Poke'mon.
Thanks for the answer :)
I like Grass Knot on Mienshao to f up Ground types. but HP Ice does this as well. Naive Nature doesnt ruin your SAtk stat so either one works. bit definitely go Stone Edge on a Jolly natured Mienshao.
