I'm surprised too and yet again, I agree with Sir mcdanger. Yes, Mienshao can "shine" with the right support, but what if those Pokemon that "make" the support, faint before you even get to use your strategy? Mienshao lacks the coverage to fight certain Pokemon as well as it's stats. It's basically a Glass Cannon aforementioned by mcdanger. (xD) You would've wasted 2 spots of your team that could've been enough for you to be victorious in battle. Since we're on the discussion of OU, then this is why we suggest Lucario, it has better offensive stats, better Special Attack for it's Aura Sphere use, better Speed, Defensive, and Typing in order to take hits and move quickly. And it has the ability to provide excellent coverage from moves like Flash Cannon, Aura Sphere, Dragon Pulse, Shadow Ball, and Psychic.
