Mr Mime (XY) 

Fun Fact: I was looking up decks from German Nationals the other day, and I discovered that Mime is called ‘Pantimos’ in Germany. That’s awesome, and so is the lovely background art for this card. Unfortunately, even the best artwork couldn’t disguise how poor this Mr Mime is: a low HP unevolving Basic with two rubbish attacks. 

The first, Massage, heals 60 damage from one of your Benched Pokémon. Not only is this not worth using an attack for (we have various Potions to do that job), but it costs TWO Energy, which is a pretty ridiculous waste of resources, even assuming that you get the chance to use it. Sacrifice a Prize (it will get KO’d), an attack, and two Energy to heal 60? No thanks. Slap Down, the offensive option, is just as unappealing. Three Energy for 40 damage plus a couple of coin flips that could bump it up to 80? That’s just terrible. 

Mr Mime is really just a filler card, no-one should even think about using him.


Modified: 1.25 (prettyful filler is still filler)

Limited: 1.5 (only if you’re desperate for something to put in your deck)

Mr.Mime has some of the most useful cards in the whole format, there’s the Plasma Freeze version that shields your bench from all attack damage and the ubiquitous Jungle version that’s incredibly difficult to 1 Hit KO, a staple in any Psychic deck! 

His Fairy type debut isn’t nearly as impressive though. Massage is the sort of effect you want on a Trainer or Supporter, not to use you turn’s attack up on. Slap Down can do a good 80 for 3… on 2 heads, like most flippy attacks it’s just not worth investing energy in an attack that can backfire. 

Rating: 1 (It doesn’t really do anything. If you love Mr. Mime there are much better options!)
