Mawile (Japanese: クチート Kucheat) is a dual-type Steel/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Prior to Generation VI, it was a pure Steel-type Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon, Mawile can Mega Evolve into Mega Mawile using the Mawilite.

Biology

Mawile is a short, bipedal, humanoid Pokémon with a pale yellow body. Its three-fingered hands and two-toed feet are black. It has red eyes and a pair of long, black, ear-like extensions on either side of its head. Its legs resemble a hakama. Its most notable feature is a pair of large black jaws emerging from the back of its head. These jaws have a yellow, oval-shaped spot on their top surface. They contain ten sharp, metallic teeth - six on the top row and four on the bottom. While the jaws are actually transformed steel horns, Mawile can articulate them at will, using them to bite enemies with enough force to break an iron beam. These jaws are incapable of tasting, leading Mawile to use them to eat food it does not like.

Mawile is typically found in caves. It uses its non-threatening appearance to make foes underestimate it, then attacks with its giant jaws, sometimes swallowing its prey whole. When engaged in battle, Mawile usually has its back turned to the enemy to make better use of its jaws.

Forms

Mawile can Mega Evolve into Mega Mawile.

Mega Mawile has two sets of jaws protruding from the back of its head, and both sets have a spiky tuft of hair. It also seems to be able to control the jaws independently of one another.[1] The ear-like extensions on its head are longer and have tips with two points. Its legs have grown longer, and its "hakama" is now magenta. Its arms now resemble thick sleeves, with magenta markings around the wrists. Mega Mawile can use both its jaws to grip on prey and tear them apart. These jaws thrash around violently.

Major appearances

Mawile made its main series debut in Once in a Mawile, under the ownership of Samantha. It had a crush on Brock's Lombre, but Lombre didn't reciprocate its feelings. After the Jolly Pokémon evolved into a Ludicolo by finding a Water Stone in Samantha's backpack, it finally reciprocated, but Mawile decided it didn't like the fully evolved Ludicolo and moved on to another boy's Psyduck. It was always seen outside its Poké Ball.

In The Bonds of Mega Evolution!, Mabel owns a Mawile that can Mega Evolve. She used it in a fight against Korrina's Lucario. Due to Mega Lucario not listening and raging out of control, Mega Mawile was easily able to win.

In A Festival Trade! A Festival Farewell?, Count Pumpka traded his Mawile to Jessie for her Pumpkaboo. After Pumpkaboo evolved into Gourgeist, Mawile was traded back to Count Pumpka.

Trivia

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Mawile may have been based on the Japanese legend of the futakuchi-onna, a woman with a mouth in the back of her head. Its mouth resembles a bear-trap, which could have been the origin for its Steel type. It may also be influenced by ouni, a demon with a torn mouth and a body covered in hair that lives in the mountains.

Name origin

Mawile may be a combination of maw (jaws of a voracious animal) and wile (cunning stratagem) or smile.

Kucheat may be a combination of 口 kuchi (mouth) and cheat or eat.
