Mawile Will Eat You Up in One Big Chomp

By Zack Zwiezen on at

Every Pokémon is interesting and worth talking about. I don’t play a load of Pokémon, but I do enjoy the universe and I love learning more about the creatures in it. So, Here’s Another Pokémon! It’s Mawile!

Mawile Details

Type: Steel/Fairy

Average Height: 60 centimetres

Average Weight: 11.5 kilograms

First Added In Generation III


I’ll just say it now, to get it out of the way. Mawile is a terrible looking Pokémon. The big mouth is cool, but the little, weird body it is attached to doesn’t look interesting at all. It looks like a leftover design that was stitched to a giant jaw. Sorry Mawile, at least you have a cool gimmick. You see, Mawile uses that small, little body to trick predators or prey into getting close. They assume it’s just a tiny Pokémon, nothing to worry about. Then Mawile turns around and CHOMP! Its second mouth is so big it can eat most things in a single bite.

That smaller body must be incredibly strong. Think about how heavy that big second mouth must be and how Mawile just carries it around like no big deal. I complain when I grab too many shopping bags and I have to imagine that giant second skull is heavier than some milk, eggs and cereal boxes. It almost feels like Mawile should be bigger after living for a few years. Like all that working out and carrying around a big second head should make Mawile jacked like they are getting ready to film a Marvel movie.

While that second mouth might look like a second head, it doesn’t have a brain or eyes. In fact, according to Pokédex entries found on Bulbapedia, it is actually a series of horns that have evolved into these giant jaw-like appendages. Please do not share any horny jokes in the comments below. Thank you.

That big mouth might not have a brain, but it also doesn’t have any tastebuds. And Mawile will actually use this to its advantage. If it needs to eat food it doesn’t like, it can just turn around and chomp it down with its second mouth. Imagine how much healthier we could all be if we had a second mouth that didn’t have taste buds. I would eat a bit of chocolate or pizza and then use my other mouth to chomp away on salads and other healthy foods.

Favorite Fan Art

I like this art for two reasons. Reason number one, it is cute and nice. Reason number two, it isn’t filled with nudity and sex. I’m not a prude, but I do try to keep stuff somewhat safe for work around here, at least when it comes to images. And some weeks this is easier than others. Mawile has some really... dedicated artists and fans, it seems.

Random Facts

  • Mawile has a Mega Evolution from Generation VI that gives it TWO big mouths on the back of its head.
  • According to Bulbapedia, Mawile can chew through steel beams with its massive secondary mouth. Mawile can’t melt steel beams, but it can certainly rip them apart.
  • When in its Mega Mawile form it has the highest Attack stat of any Pokémon, with a maximum of 678. So, I want to apologise for making fun of how you look earlier, Mawile.

What was up with all the birds in Gen V being absolute dumbasses?

I mean, this is just them bringing real-world science into the games. Birds are just daft. I used to have a parrot and, yeah, it could say stuff like “I love you.” But it also tried eating ceiling tiles. Birds are weird.
