Pokemon of the week #6: Mimikyu


Zackary Schejbal, Staff Reporter / Pokemon expert

Alola fellow pokemon trainers! This is Pokemon of the Week!

As all you by now know, Pokemon of the Week is dedicated to informing you on pokemon you may encounter on your adventures! This week’s pokemon is Mimikyu, the Disguise Pokemon!

Mimikyu’s global pokedex number is 778. As a ghost and fairy type pokemon, it is a very unusual pokemon with a cute look and useful ability.

Our pokedex entries state that “Its actual appearance is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under its rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock”.

This pokemon unfortunately does not evolve. Although unable to evolve, its ability, disguise, is a useful tool to use in battle at times.

Its ability, disguise, allows it to take the first attack move, such as like Hyper Beam and such, and not take HP damage. After taking that attack, its disguise busts and then it’s able to take HP damage.

In my opinion, it’s a very cute and amazing pokemon to keep on your side. I have a Mimikyu on my roster at times in case if the battle gets pretty heated.

That is all we have time for this week folks!
