This Mr. Mime, nicknamed Mimey, is a Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon owned by Ash Ketchum and Delia Ketchum. Mimey currently resides at the Cerise Laboratory to watch over Ash.


At the Ketchum household, Mimey is extremely responsible. It enjoys doing chores and refuses others to ease its workload. When Brock was staying at Ash's home, he always fought with Mimey on who should be responsible for the chores. It is also quite protective of the Ketchum household, such as when Butch and Cassidy attempted to destroy the garden, it didn't hesitate to retaliate against them.

When battling, Mimey has proven itself to be a capable fighter, like how it namely effortlessly defeated Houji's Hariyama. When someone like Goh underestimated it, it can come off as smuggish. However, it is aware of its own limits and won't risk itself against type disadvantages, as it quickly retreated when realizing that it had to confront Houji's Mightyena, whom he had a lower hand against.

Later when Delia was serving Brock and Misty with nice meals, Mimey stumbled into the Ketchum house. Thinking that it was Ash in disguise, Delia welcomed it with open arms and treated it like Ash until the real Ash showed up. Still, she treated Mr. Mime like part of the family. Because of Delia's care and affection, Mr. Mime decided to stay with her and help her with her household jobs like making food, cleaning vessels, rooms and also helping Delia in gardening and grocery shopping. Delia, after a short while, decided to name Mr. Mime as "Mimey".
