Mr. Mime.

# 122.

Type: Psychic.

Ability: Soundproof / Filter.

Locations: Trade on route 3 (Firered, Leafgreen), Snag from Cipher Admin Gorigan (XD), Routes 118 and 222 (Diamond).


Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re reviewing Mr. Mime, the barrier Pokémon.


Mr. Mime is has somehow regained some use with this new generation. It is a decent Psychic type for you to use in the game if you don’t like Kadabra (or don’t want to train one). It has great special defense and special attack and can learn calm mind so it’s even better. But still, Alakazam is way better.


Soundproof is interesting, and Filter is a new ability that halves the damage done by a super effective attack, not too bad, right?


Let’s move on to the move combinations I’ll start for combinations for the GBA and then combinations for the new DP games…



Mr. Mime.

Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).

Equip: Choice band.

EV´s: 252 Speed, 129 Defense, 129 HP.

- Trick

- Calm mind

- Thunderbolt

- Psychic


This one is just awesome. Trick anything that’s not a physical sweeper and start using calm mind, than just sweep… It is incredibly simple and effective.


Mr. Mime.

Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).

Equip: Lum berry.

EV´s: 252 Speed, 129 Defense, 129 Special defense.

- Baton pass

- Calm mind

- Barrier

- Psychic


Not as good as Ninjask, but this baton passer is quite effective. Just remember your timing, take it out early in the battle so you can use it at least twice.




First of all, remember the physical / special attack consideration has changed for DP, so some of our reviews have to change as well to fit the new criteria.


I have been researching for almost 2 hours hoping to find something new for this old guy, unfortunately not so much has changed for this one. It is still mainly a baton passer, I wouldn’t chance a lot for this one. Grass knot is great against a pretty wide variety of foes but thunderbolt is still better. Encore and substitute are useful to keep using calm mind, but it is still the same move set…


When should I use this Pokémon?

You should use it if you can’t get Alakazam for you in game purposes. It is decent and Calm mind is always useful… But I can’t really get the baton passer strategy. Ninjask is still the king.


What should I use against this Pokémon?

Strong physical sweepers as Snorlax will do great. Tyranitar is almost a guarantee as well…


Bottom line:

Now that we can find them in the wild and with a very common pre-evolution, this guy is gaining some life. Thanks Nintendo, for not letting a forgotten classic die.


Remember, If you have DP versions and want my number please Send me an e-mail with yours to reeve.ryu@gmail.com This week I have some pretty interesting things for you, check the following link to see my Pojo forums H/W list and reply or send me an e-mail… Thanks and see you Wi-fi. http://www.pojo.biz/board/showthread.php?p=6464696#post6464696





Hope you enjoyed.

Today we are reviewing the barrier Pokemon, Mr. Mime.

Mr. Mime is never used in any play. People don’t use Mr. Mime do to its moveset and stats. I hope to change that soon.

With that said, here are some battle strategies for Mr. Mime:

Mr. Mime
Nature: Modest (+special attack, -attack)
EV’s: 252 speed, 252 special attack, 6 hp
Ability: Filter
Equip: Petaya Berry
-Psychic (TM 29, Lvl 39)
-Substitute (TM 90, Lvl 29)
-Shadow Ball (TM 30)
-Energy Ball (TM 53)

A special sweeper. Use substitute until the berry is used, then sweep.

Mr. Mime
Nature: Modest (+special attack, -attack)
EV’s: 252 speed, 252 special attack, 6 hp
Ability: Filter
Equip: Salac Berry
-Psychic (TM 29, Lvl 39)
-Substitute (TM 90, Lvl 29)
-Shadow Ball (TM 30)
-Energy Ball (TM 53)

Same as above.

Bottom Line: Mr. Mime is underused and misunderstood.
