Poochyena is a black and grey Pokémon with a black face and paws. It has a red nose and red eyes. Its tail is unkempt and messy. Its body and tail is grey and its underbelly is black. It looks like a dog, though its name indicates it's a hyena. It has greyish-blackish fur and, if it is Team Aqua's Poochyena, has a robotic appearance and sharp fangs. Shiny Poochyenas are brown in color.
Poochyena evolves into Mightyena at level 18.
