Thanks, I try and "let her know you said thanks and is adorable" she sleeps a lot - had her about a year now. She is also the reason that any Pokemon based on ferrets/weasels are always my favorites first.
Caitlin I think its her, Mienshao couldn't take down any of her Pokemon. Fighting being weak to psychic (my Watchog took her down - with dark attacks - in both my Black 2, White 2 and Black games). I know that Mienshao can be very powerful with the right moves and items (ability & nature help out too).
A friend of mine (well, not really my friend anymore sadly) told me to use Mienshao because it became such a powerhouse to every Pokemon out there, including the psychic type elite four member (was it Caitlin?), Right now, if I recall, mine is at L81 the last time I played. It's been a while since I checked because I lack a DS atm. :(
Just read that Mienshao has a special place in your heart - just needed to say the same with me. In many of my Unova teams (except for 2 my Water team and my Watchog team games I don't have one) he/she is never missing. I have a special place since its my only shiny to date. I have never encountered any other shinies..... in one of my two White 2 teams she is close to level 100 (she is now at level 91).
