Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What is a good moveset for Mr. Mime?

1 vote

Got another Pokemon that my brother didn't want. It came with:

Barrier: Doubles defense.

Mimic: Can copy a powerful move.

Psychic: STAB, good power, high accuracy.

Shadow Ball: Good power, high accuracy, used to deal with Ghost types, decent chance to lower Sp. Def.

Gen V

Mr. Mime (M) @ Life Orb

Trait: Technician

EVs: 236 SAtk / 252 SDef / 20 Spd

Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Magical Leaf
  • Icy Wind
  • Charge Beam
  • Psyshock

Make use of Technician. Icy Wind gets a boost and slows down the foe. Charge Beam is boosted and has a great chance of raising your Special Attack. This is a make-shift BoltBeam combo. Magical Leaf provides further coverage and gets boosted by Technician. Also, it can be used to hit Sand Veilers. Psyshock gets STAB. Life Orb gives your moves more power. The EVs give you some bulk, along with enough Speed and Special Attack for Icy Wind and Charge Beam to help out.

Nice!  Good coverages on various types, might consider a Technician Mr. Mime.
If it is holding the Life Orb, wouldn't the moves get enough power to overpass Technician? I could be wrong, but if I'm not, then maybe a different item would help, like maybe Leftovers or Sitrus Berry would work better. Other than that, great moveset!
LO damage is calculated after technician.
Okay. Cool. Great  moveset, trachy!

Mr. Mime (M) @ Leftovers

Role: Sweeper Killer

Trait: Filter

EVs: 30 HP / 30 Def / 196 SDef / 252 Spd

Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Power Split
  • Thunder Wave
  • Taunt
  • Protect

Power Split ( Unlike power swap which only affects stat changed ) Is the obvious way to power down physical Sweepers, with his HORRIBLE physical defense, this screws them over.
And Thunder Wave takes their speed, and many times their ability to attack for a turn.
While Taunt stops toxic users Willo Wispers and to avoid being Taunted.
And Protect is for Leftovers stalling, and just plain annoying people with Taunt + Protect.

Power Swap only exchanges boosts to Attack and Special Attack, not the actual attack and special attack stats.
Fixed it.
Dude. This set is awesome!

Gen V

Ability: Technician

  • Magical leaf (doesnt miss, powered up by technician, coverage)

  • Shock wave (doesnt miss, powered up by technician, coverage)

  • Hidden power Ice (if you are lucky and get one with exactly 60 base power, coverage and being powered up)

  • Psychic. (STAB, a 60 base power hidden power would make no sense because it would be as strong as psychic which also has the effect of lowering the foe's sp.atk.

It cannot have both Technician and Shock Wave (DW ability and IV gen move)
That moveset was rather meant for clients like NetBattle or Shoddy Battle that dont have these restrictions
It is possible to have them both on such things? COOOOOOOL
I rather go with Charge Beam than Shock Wave because of the Sp. Atk boost, Magical Leaf already doesn't miss anyway.

Replace mimic or barrier with focus blast to deal with dark types

DOuble/Triple Battle

Mr. Mime (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Charge Beam
- Icy Wind
- Teeter Dance
- Psychic

Icy Wind hits multiple Pokemon and lowers their Speed. It is also boosted by Technician. Charge Beam is boosted by Technician. I've said before that stat bosting was risky. However, when your stats are boosted by an attack, it is much less risky. Psychic is STAB. Teeter Dance cn be used with Own Tempo teammates to give Mr. Mime a better chance at survival.

Best moveset for mr. mime

  1. Psychic
  2. Magical leaf
  3. Barrier
  4. Brick Break

psychic is good because its strong and has a better chance of hitting.
Magical leaf is good because it never misses and its strong
barrier is good because it doubles your defense and mr. mimes defense pretty much crap
and now finally brick break. this I good against dark types which is mr. mimes only weakness other than ghost type. and its better than focus blast and focus punch because it performs an attack in one turn rather than two. also, it hasa better accuracy.

That is the best moveset for mr. mime

Brick Break would probably not be that viable since Mr. Mime's Attack stat is horrible.  If you wanted to go with a Fighting type attack, Focus Blast would be much better.  Sure, not as accurate, but it will actually do some damage (and Focus Blast doesn't take two turns to perform).  Even if you used Focus Blast three times and only hit once, you'd probably do the same amount of damage as three Brick Breaks.  BUT, now that he's part Fairy... Darks aren't as dangerous, and if they were... Dazzling Gleam would take care of them.

Gen 6 Offensive Mr. Mime

Ability: Filter
EVs: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4Def
Nature: Timid
Item: Life Orb

Psyshock is one of the two STABs on this set and hurts special walls with low physical defences. Psychic can be used if you want a stronger hit. Both hit Fighting and Poison types.
Dazzling Gleam is the second STAB option and has general good coverage. Hits Dark, Dragon and Fighting types.
Focus Blast is used to deal with Steel types that resist both STAB options. Also hits Ice, Normal and Rock types.
Shadow Ball is used for other Psychic types and Ghost types. Thunderbolt can be used for Water and Flying types.
