Mienshao (Japanese: コジョンド Kojondo) is a Fighting-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Mienfoo starting at level 50.

Biology

Mienshao is a white and long bodied Pokémon with a small head and small, triangular ears. Its forehead has a purple spot adorning it as well as a yellow one on its snout. It possesses a pair of long, yellow tipped whiskers which have split ends. Its arms are almost completely covered by a large amount of fur that is tipped in purple and split at the end. This arm fur is used as a weapon in battle and acts like a battle whip. Its torso has one purple ring of fur around its midsection. It also has purple fur on the bottom section of the torso, which resemble pants, and its bottom paws are clawed. It has a long, skinny tail that, like its paw fur, is tipped purple and split at its end. Mienshao is respectful and is usually seen training with its Trainer.

Trivia

Origin

Mienshao seems to be based on an ermine and also seems to have drawn inspiration from whip fighting as well as a variety of martial arts, such as Taekwondo and Kokondo. The fur on its arms also resemble the shuixiu (水袖) or "water sleeves", which are long, white, flowing sleeves used by performers of Chinese operas to express the emotions of their character.

Name origin

Mienshao may be a combination of ermine and Shaolin. Shao may also derive from シャオ shao (onomatopoeia of a weasel, the genus ermines are in).

Kojondo may be a combination of オコジョ okojo (ermine) and Taekwondo or Kokondo (a form of Japanese-based martial arts founded in the United States).
