Mimikyu isn’t in PokemonGo yet but its official PokeDex entry states –
“A lonely Pokemon, it conceals its terrifying appearance beneath an old rag so it can get close to people and Pokemon.”
He is sort of in the game as a Pikachu costume and a backpack!
Like most people- one of my favorite Pokemon is Pikachu- he is probably the most known and loved Pokemon- which is why Mimikyu usually decides to conceal itself to look like a Pikachu.
What Mimikyu actually looks like is unknown. A scholar who saw what was under the rag was overwhelmed by terror and died from the shock.
The cover also helps since it’s weakened by sunlight.
During battle, if Mimikyu’s rag is damaged or the neck of the costume gets broken- it spends all night patching it and then seeks revenge on the one that damaged it.
Mimikyu is the only known Pokemon capable of learning the Z-Move “Let’s Snuggle Forever.”
It’s a lonely ghost type that dresses like Pikachu in order to try to make friends and be loved.
I personally believe it’s the ghost of a child since the Pikachu face has been drawn on its rag with crayon.
The disguise has seemed to work because it’s quickly becoming a fan favorite and I was a huge fan the moment I saw the leaked artwork and back story for it.
