Who here uses a pure fighting type competitively?

I've used Sawk, Throh and Hariyama but that's it. I always find it hard to use a pure fighter

Mienshao is pretty much the only pure fighting type I've ever used.

I've always been curious. I've either trained them wrong or something but outside of a great speed and atk stat how do you compensate for low HP and Def/Sdef?

With things like Fake Out, U-Turn with Regenerator support, Wide Guard (if you're into Doubles/Triples), and High Jump Kick.

Besides, Mienshao needs something to keep her from being too overpowered. The low HP is honestly the only problem mine has ever encountered. She's not meant to tank or anything so why should you worry about her defenses so much? With Regenerator and a Life Orb, you can just switch her out all day. Or better yet, use U-Turn for free damage while you do.

Hitmonlee. Normal Gem Fake Out to activate Unburden, and then sweep.
