Poochyena (Japaneseポチエナ Pochiena) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves into Mightyena starting at level 18.

Biology

Poochyena is a quadruped Pokémon similar in appearance to hyenas and canines. Its body is primarily gray with a black face and throat, paws, and belly. Its eyes are red with yellow sclerae, and it has a red nose. Its lower jaw has two pointed teeth sticking out. The fur at the base of its tail is rumpled and shaggy. Poochyena has gray paw pads on its three-toed paws.

Poochyena has a very keen sense of smell, allowing it to find and chase its prey with ease. It takes a bite at anything that moves, and makes the hair on its tail bristle out to try to intimidate its foes. Known for its tenacious nature, it chases after prey until the victim becomes exhausted. If its prey strikes back, it may turn tail. It is omnivorous and will eat anything. This Pokémon lives in grasslands and forests.

Main article: Nana

A Poochyena named Nana is first seen in Ruby's possession, one of the three Pokémon given to him from his father, Norman, when he was very young. Even 5 years before the events of the RS series, Nana was shown to be a formidable battler, injuring a wild Salamence teaming up with Kiki and Rara. While it still hadn't evolved, Ruby saw few wild Mightyena that attacked Birch and envied how splendid their fur looked. A few chapters down the line, Ruby would obtain his own Mightyena on Dewford Town when he met up with Steven, and Nana evolved together with Kiki, who touched the champion's Moon Stone. This new evolved form saw a furthering of Nana's abilities, allowing it to perfect its Hyper Beamattack.
