After about a week of playing Pokemon Sun and Moon, I finally arrived at the point where I got the chance to catch Mimikyu; virtually my favorite Pokemon of all time…right behind Umbreon.
For anyone who currently isn’t aware, Mimikyu is a Ghost/Fairy type Pokemon. As of right now, Mimikyu is the only Ghost/Fairy type Pokemon in the series. Speaking of its typing, you’d think Mimikyu would be a special attacker, right? So did I. However, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Mimikyu relies largely on its attack stat; which is surprisingly high and is absolutely taken advantage of by an overwhelming majority of the moves that it learns.
The best thing about Mimikyu, aside it being so darn cute and ultra powerful! Is its Disguise ability. Only Mimikyu has the Disguise ability. Disguise allows Mimikyu to take any initial hit without loosing HP. Awesome, right? This is incredibly useful if you want to “test the waters” and see what your opponent will throw at you. Pairing Mimikyu with a Pokemon that has disable could be epic!
Thirsty after reading all of that? Great! Lets make a Dark and Spooky. Mimikyu style!
