I have had a Mimikyu for a while on my team, and I want to know if I should keep it.

Please note that Mimikyu is post-game only, since both Fog and 5-star raids, the only ways to encounter it, are only available upon becoming champion.
I know that, I beat the game along time ago

Absolutely. Ghost and Fairy are both very solid offensive types, and they cover quite a bit together. Mimikyu has a wonderful Ability in Disguise, allowing it to take any hit for free. It's pretty fast and has a respectable Attack as well, along with solid coverage options, making it worth your while. It also has a paltry two weaknesses, making it especially good in-game, as not many trainers use Ghost moves, and though Steel is common, Mimikyu can easily cover it with Drain Punch. It is a bit difficult to find in the first place, but that's not an issue, as you already have one.

Mimikyu @ Life Orb / Muscle Band
Ability: Disguise
- Play Rough
- Shadow Claw / Shadow Sneak
- Drain Punch
- Wood Hammer / Leech Life

Hope I helped!
