This Mr. Mime, nicknamed Mimey, is a Psychic/Fairy-type Pokémon owned by 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 Hodge'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 Hodge's Mightyena, whom it had a lower hand against.


Mimey was a Mr. Mime living in the wild until Ash, and Stella attempted to catch it. They were unsuccessful, however. He stumbled into the Ketchum house by pure chance, and Delia, thinking it was Ash, happily treated Mimey well until the "real" Ash showed up. Despite the misunderstanding and the fact that Mimey was "not" Ash, Delia welcomed him with open arms.
