Mienfoo joins Pokémon Go right at the beginning of the discovery season. It is a fighting Pokémon that may eventually evolve into Mienshao. We have some mixed feelings about Mienshao, but we feel that it can be used in unique ways to make it a useful addition to your Pokémon Go. For those looking to try and add Mienfoo to their collection, the only way to meet them is to participate in the Pokémon Go Battle League.
You can meet Mienfoo by finishing fifth in the Pokémon Go Battle League. The first meeting in the fifth position will be guaranteed. However, it will then be added to the pool and become a random encounter for every reward you meet with Pokémon in the Battle League. If you want more chances to conquer Mienfoo and find one with decent IV and attacks, you will want to continue looking for competition in the Battle League.
There have been several unique additions and changes to Battle League Season 8, and Mienshao is also on this unique middle ground because he knows the quick attack of Poison Jab, Poison Jab. It is one of several Poison moves that have been changed and added additional statistics for Season 8. Although they do more damage, Poison moves do not benefit Fighting because Poison attacks are super effective against Fairy and Grass. Fairy weak. How the coaches use it to their advantage is up to them, but for those waiting to see how Mienshao works in the overall Battle League meta, it could cause a break.
