Mimikyu's basics in Pokemon UNITE
  • Passive: Basic attack

Mimikyu's third basic attack will proc another attack, striking twice. After using a move, its basic attack will also strike twice.

Ability

  • Disguise

When in Disguise Form, any opponent that deals damage to Mimikyu will be marked and Mimikyu turns into Busted Form. When this happens, Mimikyu will get an increased movement speed and deal tons more damage to the marked opponent. It will also suffer a slight HP decrease however, all damages are nullified for a set amount of time.

Level 1 and 3

  • Astonish

This ability causes Mimikyu to shout and deal damage to opponents.

  • Scratch

Mimikyu charges at a targeted direction, dealing damage and slowing any opponents it hits. If this ability is pressed again directly after, Mimikyu will serve an attack to opponents in front of it - dealing additional damage based on the opponent's missing HP.

Level 5

  • Play Rough

Mimikyu jumps ahead and moves around its opponent, slowing their movement speed and dealing multiple damage instances. After the attack is finished, it will jump back to a targeted location. This ability can be upgraded to increase Mimikyu's movement speed for a short period after the attack is finished.

  • Shadow Claw

This ability causes Mimikyu to slash its claws in front of itself - dealing damage, slowing movement speed, and also restoring Mimikyu's HP. Shadow Claw's cooldown reduces with every basic attack that Mimikyu makes. You can upgrade this ability for it to deal additional damage based on opponent's missing HP.

Level 7

  • Shadow Sneak

This ability causes Mimikyu to extend it shadow and any opponent it hits will become a shadow target. Those marked as shadow target will receive additional damage based on how much HP it has lost. If this move is used again, Mimikyu deals more damage and extends the duration of the shadow mark. If an opponent gets knocked out from Shadow Sneak, this move's cooldown resets and Mimikyu gains back HP.

  • Trick Room

This ability creates an area around itself where any movement speed debuffs will turn into an movement speed increase instead. Mimikyu will also take less damage from outside of the area.

UNITE Move

  • Play With Me...

The strongest move, Play With Me..., makes Mimikyu jump toward an opponent and trap it inside its rag. This deals damage over time while granting Mimikyu a shield for itself. But the most interesting part is, the opponent will not be affected by any moves except for Mimikyu's while in its trap!
