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

Biology

Physiology

Mawile are small Pokémon with a yellow and black color combination. It has a round, cute face and small red eyes. Its legs are covered by yellow flaps, with its black feet visible. Its most noticeable feature though, is its giant jaws on the back of its head. These jaws are actually a pair of horns, able to "bite" down on prey or enemies.

Its Mega Evolution carries two massive mouths on its head. They're larger and more powerful than his normal form.

Special abilities

Mawile is capable of keeping its attack power at its best against enemies with the abilities Hyper Cutter and Intimidate. Hyper Cutter will prevent any decrease in its attack, while Intimidate lowers the opponents attack at the start of a battle. It also can have Sheer Force for moves like Play Rough and Iron Head.

Evolution

Mawile can Mega Evolve in Pokémon X & Y using a Mawilite. As Mega Mawile, it gains a boost in Attack, Defense and Special Defense. It also gains the Ability Huge Power which doubles its Attack stat, making Mega Mawile a very powerful physical attacker.

Appearances

Anime

Mawile&Lombre

Mawile in love with Lombre.

Mawile's first appearance was in the Advanced Generation episode Once in a Mawile. In the episode a Mawile fell in love with Brock's Lombre, however his Lombre did not feel the same way. By the end of the episode, Lombre evolved into Ludicolo and then shared the same feelings toward the Mawile, but Mawile, not liking Lombre's new form, rejected it. Ludicolo later figured out that it has happened before and Mawile is always falling in and out of love.

Another Mawile, owned by Mabel, can Mega Evolve and battled Korrina's Mega Lucario.

Trivia

Origins

Mawile is based on the Japanese legend of the futakuchi-onna. This legend tells of a woman that had a mouth on the back of her head.

Mawile's name comes from combining the word maw, meaning an animal's mouth, and wile, meaning to lure or entice. The Japanese name Kucheat combines the words kuchi, also meaning mouth, and the word eat.
