Overview: Mimikyu is a lonely, Ghost and Fairy type Pokémon. It has no evolutions or relatives. It debuted in Pokémon Sun and Moon, which is the seventh generation of Pokémon games. It’s a creepy looking, but sweat Pokémon, that only wants to make friends. Its dark background, and lonely personality, make it very popular among the older fans of the Pokémon franchise. Though it is only seen with a Pikachu disguise in the game, several other Pokémon disguises exist as Mimikyu Plushies.
History/Biology: Mimikyu is the Disguise Pokémon, named due to its appearance. The Pokémon itself has never been seen by anyone who lived to tell about it. Apparently, its appearance is so terrifying that people who have seen it, die of fright. Despite its appearance, there is nothing Mimikyu wants more than a friend. Because of this, Mimikyu creates costumes from rags and models them after other Pokémon.
In the game, Mimikyu always appears in a Pikachu costume. It is little more than a large head, and a limbless, triangular body. A crooked smile and mismatched eyes have been drawn on the face of the rag, and its head and ears appear to have been stuffed half hazardly. A wooden stick has been shaped into a lightning bolt and attached to the back of the costume as a tail. Two slits have been torn into the belly of the disguise, which Mimikyu uses to see. Though we cannot see inside the costume, we know that there is a rod of some sort, which Mimikyu uses to prop up the head of the costume. We know this because the rod is often broken in battle, causing the head to flop sideways.
Though the disguise seems crude to us, apparently it is quite successful in fooling Pokémon. The Mimikyu also seems to believe that it even fools its own trainer. When the rod inside the costume is broken, Mimikyu fears that its true identity will be revealed. It works diligently to repair and maintain its costume so as to continue to deceive those around it. It seems to believe that no one would love it if they knew what it truly was.
