[[Category:Black Pokémon]] Mawile (Japanese: クチート Kucheat) is a dual-type Steel/Fairy Pokémon. Prior to Generation VI, it was a pure Steel-type Pokémon.

Appearance

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.

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 stat, while Intimidate lowers the opponents Attack stat at the start of a battle.

In the anime

Mawile in love with Brock's Lombre

Mawile's first and only main 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 return the feelings. Eventually, 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.

Evolution

Mawile has no forms of evolution. However, Mawile can Mega Evolve into Mega Mawile through the use of the Mawillite.

Origins

Design 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.

Etymology

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.
