Mimikyu (ミミッキュ, Mimikkyu) is a fictional creature from the Pokémon franchise.
Mimikyu is a Ghost/Fairy type Pokémon that debuted in Generation VII, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #778 as the "Disguise Pokémon". Its true form is unknown, as it covers itself under a cloth that resembles Pikachu; it is said that looking at its true form would kill the viewer or afflict them with a terrible illness. As a result, Mimikyu is a rather lonely and resentful Pokémon; the reason it disguises itself as Pikachu is because of Pikachu's popularity as a species, and Mimikyu wants to make friends as easily as Pikachu can. In the games, Mimikyu's ability is Disguise, which allows it to take no damage for one attack, after which it will go into its Busted Form, a deflated version of itself. The Pokédex states it is very upset when this happens. Due to having an appearance similar to Pikachu's, it is sometimes among the few Pokémon in each region who are commonly referred to as a "Pikaclone".
Its attack resembles "Let's Snuggle Forever", its signature Z-Move.
Mimikyu appears as a Poké Ball summon. After getting close to its opponent, Mimikyu uses Let's Snuggle Forever and grabs the opponent with its tentacles and drags them under its cloth, where it proceeds to deal damage for a few seconds before releasing them. If the trapped fighter reaches 90% damage by the end of the attack, they are instantly KO'd. Like Gulpin, other players can attack the opponent trapped inside Mimikyu.
