It has a long snout, a red nose, and red eyes with yellow scleras. It has sharp fangs which it bears when angered.

Special Abilities

Poochyena has a very acute sense of smell that allows it to track down prey. It is extremely tenacious and relentless when it comes to hunting.

But if its prey strikes back, Poochyena will display cowardice by running away. It is known to eat anything, being an omnivore. It intimidates its enemies by bristling its fur.
