Mawile (Japanese: クチート Kucheat) is a Steel-type Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Mawile are short yellow and black Pokémon. Their skin is made entirely out of steel, and their legs have yellow coverings that give the appearence of a dress or bellbottom pants. Their most famous feature though is a pair of huge jaw-like horns that grow from the backs of their heads. They are able to open and close these jaws at will and use them to bite or ward off potential threats.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Their abilities range from Hyper Cutter, which prevents the power of their attack from ever lowering, to Intimidate, which lowers the attack power of the opponent. Both abilities are used to ensure that Mawile is the Pokémon with the higher attack power in battle.

Behavior

Rather than attacking an opponent head on, this Pokémon lives up to its nickname, the deceiver. It will turn its back to its foes and cleverly use its dual horns which are disguised as a pair of huge jaws, making it look much more vicious and powerful than it really is. If this doesn't fend off a foe, Mawile has another ace up its sleeve. The skin of a Mawile is made of steel; it is one of the only Pokémon that is purely Steel. This makes a Mawile a tough foe to beat in battle.

Habitat

Unknown, though this Pokémon is found in places such as Granite Cave and Victory Road, so presumably its habitat is a cave or any place dark and dank that is habitable.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Mawile first appeared in Once in a Mawile. The Deciever Pokémon was owned by a woman named Samantha and had a crush on Brock's Lombre, but Lombre didn't feel any affection for Mawile. After the Jolly Pokémon evolved into a Ludicolo by finding a Water Stone in Samantha's backpack, it finally found itself affectionate toward Mawile. However, Mawile decided it didn't like the fully evolved Ludicolo and moved on to another boy's Psyduck.

In the manga

When Ruby met Steven Stone he was attacked by lots of Mawile in Granite Cave.

Trivia

  • Mawile's Ruby and Sapphire Pokédex entries erroneously have its name spelled "Mawhile".
  • Mawile, along with Registeel, are the only pure Template:Type2 Pokémon.
  • Mawile is the only Pokémon whose back sprites actually face its trainer, instead of looking away.

Origin

It may have been based on the Japanese legend of the futakuchi-onna, a woman with a mouth in the back of her head.

Name origin

Mawile's name is a combination of maw, the mouth of a voracious animal, and wile, a stratagem or trick intended to deceive or ensnare, or possibly crocodile. Its Japanese name is a combination of 口 kuchi, mouth, and English cheat. Furthermore, its French name may be a combination of mystical and mandible, the scientific name for the jawbone.
