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!
too bad it doesn't look that cute in-game anymore!

Look at that cutie...
Mr. Mime (F) @ Expert Belt
Ability- Soundproof
Nature- Calm (+SDef -Atk)/ Modest (+SAtk -Atk)
EVs- 144 SAtk (+36), 252 SDef (+63), 112 Spe (+28)
Moveset-

  • Dazzling Gleam- (TM99)
    Mr. Mime's only damaging Fairy-type move, along with the power to hit all oppponents.
  • Psychic- (Learns at Lv.39 and TM29)
    The best Psychic type move- go-to, 100% accuracy, and a chance to lower SDef.
  • Nasty Plot- (Egg Move)
    Yes, my minion! Think of bad thoughts to double your Sp. Atk!
  • Light Screen- (TM16)/ Reflect- (TM33)
    Use these to make an unbeatable team- if this is your Specially Defensive Mr. Mime, use Light Screen!

In order to get Mr. Mime with Nasty Plot, pair it up with a Hypno that knows Nasty Plot from leveling up! Mine has Soundproof so it isn't affected by Drasna's Noivern's Boomburst! Then I shall defeat it with a Dazzling Gleam!
Change the last move up to your needs- If you'd like to defeat those pesky steel types, use a Focus Blast!

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.

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.

Gen 6
Mr. Mime
Trait: filter
Nature: Timid (-Attack, + speed)
EVs: 252 HP/252 Defense
Item: Focus sash

  • Fake out
    -Icy wind
    -Encore
    -Wide guard/ Quick guard

The idea is to be a really solid support in doubles. Fake out to shut down the threat. Icy wind lets you do some damage , however the main goal is to slow down both opposing Pokemon, making your other Pokemon have a better chance to out speed . Encore is to completely shut down the opponent in a move for 5 turns, so a Pokemon setting up won't threaten you for a good while. Wide guard or quick guard is used based on what your TEAM needs more; do you want multi-hits negated, or do you want fake out users or Scizors (any priority) getting shut down? now the filter ability and the EV spread is to let you live as long as you possibly can. Finally, timid nature is so you get a little more out speeds early game. Out speeding won't matter so much with a couple Icy winds. The focus sash is just incase you get hit really hard, or just to give the most survivability possible.

Mr. Mime (M) @Flame Orb
Trait: Filter
Role: Physical Attacker Ruiner
EVs: 252 Spe, 252 Sp. D, 4 HP
Nature: Timid (Spe+, -Atk)

• Trick
• Power Split
• Thunder Wave
• Protect

To make use of its move Trick it can be very annoying, especially with physical sweepers when you give them a Flame Orb which cuts your attack in half (Bye Azumarills). Once you have your Flame Orb taken away from you, you might want to use Protect and play it safe (and to give them the burn status) or use Power Split to make their attack cripple even more but risk getting killed. Thunder wave could be for stalling and for Fire types.
Other than that, cut your opponents attack and/or speed, switch to another Pokemon, and sweep ahead. (or stall)

Gen 8

Mr.Mime (M) @ Expert Belt

Trait:Filter

Evs: 252 Spd / 126 Spe / 126 SAtk

Timid nature (+speed,-Atk)

Psyshock
Dazzling Gleam
Copycat
Shadow Ball

With the filter ability it will reduce the damage taken from super effective hits and its weaknesses to ghost and poison are mostly special attacking moves so it can help it tank those types of hit with those special def Evs. As for the moveset Psyshock is there to hit special walls on their weaker defensive side, dazzling gleam for coverage plus it gets a STAB boost. Copycat is there to make you a bit unpredictable and allows you to hit more Pokemon as well as poison toxic stalling walls that have the move toxic, plus Copycat allows you to use more variety of moves for example: if a hydreigon uses draco meteor and since it doesnt affect you, it gives you the opportunity to retalliate back with draco meteor. as for shadow ball,its just there for coverage and almost ever psychic type Pokemon has it

Gen 8 ZU


Mr. Mime @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Filter / Soundproof
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature

  • Psyshock
  • Dazzling Gleam
  • Trick
  • Nasty Plot / Focus Blast / Mystical Fire

Psyshock is STAB that hits Special walls. It also covers Poison types. Dazzling Gleam is STAB. Trick and a Choice Scarf allows Mr. Mime to cripple defensive Pokemon. Nasty Plot allows Mr. Mime to set up after Tricking the Choice Scarf, while Focus Blast covers Steels. One can choose the safe option and go with Mystical Fire, which has more accuracy and pairs pretty well in conjunction with Filter.
