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".

Let's Snuggle Forever is a damage-dealing Fairy-type Z-Move introduced in Generation VII, and is exclusive to Mimikyu using the Z-Crystal Mimikium Z. However, it can only use it if the Mimikyu knows Play Rough so the Z-Crystal can transform it into the Z-Move. When using the Z-Move, Mimikyu attacks the opponent under its cloth, dealing massive damage.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Mimikyu drags a nearby opponent under its rag and attacks them! The opponent cannot move while captured by Mimikyu, and if they end up with more than 100% damage after the attack, they'll be instantly KO'd.

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.

  • The official blog erroneously states that Mimikyu first begins to KO fighters when they are above 100%. This completely contradicts an in-game tip, which correctly states that Mimikyu first begins to KO fighters above 90%.
  • Although Mimikyu is able to use a Z-Move by itself in Smash, much like Incineroar, only Marshadow has ever been shown capable of using a Z-Move on its own without a trainer with a Z-Ring and a Z-Crystal to use it.
  • Mimikyu's Let's Snuggle Forever, as well as Incineroar's Max Malicious Moonsault, in Ultimate was the last time Z-Moves were seen before their removal in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
