Mightyena (Japanese: グラエナ Graena) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Poochyena starting at level 18.

Biology

Mightyena is a quadruped Pokémon that is based on a hyena. Its fur is mostly short and gray, but there is shaggy black fur on its lower legs, tail, and in two thick strips starting behind its eyes and running the length of its body. It has dark, triangular streak patterns below its eyes, which are red with yellow sclerae. Its ears are rhombus-shaped with dark insides, its nose is red, and it has gray paw pads.

Mightyena lives in a pack in the wild. As a member of this pack follows the orders of its leader and chases down prey. It gives obvious signals when it is about to attack, as it starts to growl deeply and flattens its body. Mightyena defeats foes with perfectly coordinated teamwork. If its Trainer is very experienced, it will always obey their orders. As depicted in the anime, Mightyena is prone to licking the faces of the people of which it is fond. This species lives in grasslands and savannas.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Mightyena shares some similarities with both wolves and hyenas. The design may have been influenced by domestic breeds like the German Shepherd and the Australian Kelpie, a breed with personalities that are heavily influenced by their owners. German Shepherds are also commonly colored black and gray. Its appearance may also be based on a brown hyena. Mightyena's Shiny form, as well as the fact that it is a pack animal, is reminiscent of a spotted hyena.

Name origin

Mightyena may be a combination of mighty and hyena.

Graena may be a combination of growl and hyena.
