Poochyena (Japanese: ポチエナ Pochiena) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.
Poochyena is an omnivore—it will eat anything. A distinguishing feature is how large its fangs are compared to its body. This Pokémon tries to intimidate its foes by making the hair on its tail bristle out.
At first sight, Poochyena takes a bite at anything that moves. This Pokémon chases after prey until the victim becomes exhausted. However, it may turn tail if the prey strikes back.
It evolves into Mightyena starting at level 18.
