Pokémon Unite Mr. Mime Gameplay Tips

Mr. Mime is a melee-type supporter Pokémon that possesses a decent offense, that can be essential in supporting one’s teammates to victory. While playing Mr. Mime, one is advised to move along with teammates and not to solo lane. The moves and skillsets of Mr. Mime are really good during team fights. Our Pokémon Unite guide will include the perfect game plan for Mr.Mime for the early and late games during the Unite battles.

Early Game

Players must start the early gameplay while moving to the bottom lane. While laning, one must try to prioritize the attacking enemy Pokémon, as both Fake Out and Light Screen deal decent damage while applying Crowd-control effects on enemies, making it much easier for the allied Pokémon to attack such Pokémon while it’s under such effects.

 Mr. Mime is quite unique, as he doesn’t really evolve. He retains his normal look and appearance from Lvl 1 up to Lvl 15. After attaining lvl. 4, players must choose Confusion, if the strategy is to play as a core supporter on the battlefield. If the strategy is to play as Spd. Attacker for the team, players must choose Psychic, as it offers the right utilities when playing the Attacker role.

Late Game

After attaining Lvl. 6, players must choose Guard swap, if playing as support, since they swapped SP. Def between Mr. Mime and linked allied Pokèmon would make it easier to support and protect allied Pokèmon. These have high damage output but cannot really take much in return.

While in the late game, players must do try to save the ultimate for high important situations like team fights. Most importantly, for instance, when the team wants to takedown Drednaw or even Zapdos, Mr. Mime’s Unite move acts in a large area of effect, while making the enemy Pokèmon unable to act. This would make it even much harder for enemies to steal Drednaw or Zapdos for themselves.

Positioning of Mr. Mime

The best lane for Mr. Mime is the Bottom or Lower lane. The second choice would be to go top lane. While Laning, players must keep in mind to always move along with allied Pokèmon. These can be attackers, all-rounders, or even defenders, as solo-ing might just not work.

Mr. Mime with other Pokémon

Our Pokémon Unite Mr.Mime guide would also talk about the relationship between Mr. Mime and other Pokémon.

Best synergies with Mr. Mime

CrustleThis defender with very high defensive stats and crowd control abilities can be useful in adding extra crowd-control effects while making it harder for enemies to escape.
CharizardWhile Mr. Mime would be playing the support role, all-rounders like Charizard can be attacking enemies and achieving goals and objectives.
CinderacePairing with this Pokémon will help to further increase the durability, while Cinderace would be posing a great offense against enemies. This will make it even more, harder for them to flee.

Pokémon Unite Mr. Mime: Tips, tricks and strategies

Our Pokémon Unite Mr.Mime guide includes the perfect game plan for the early and late games during the Unite battles.

  1. While playing Mr. Mime as a supporter, the players’ job is to assist the allied Pokémon in completing objectives like taking down enemy Pokèmon or scoring goals, while trying to protect them from being killed by opposing Pokémon.
  2. One must keep in mind to let attackers or all-rounders take those last hits. After all, an attacker is at the same level as a supporter and would be more important for the team.
  3. As Mr. Mime’s durability or endurance is decent, one should not try to outplay his abilities. They must make sure to move along with defenders, especially during the late phase, to further support the team to victory.
  4. Skills like Guard Swap should be used, whenever the allies are nearby, especially in a situation where such skill is to be used for the enemy Pokémon, as the reduced defence might be disadvantageous if used while soloing.
  5. During the late phase, players must save and use Mr. Mime’s Unite Move to help the teammates takedown super wild Pokémon like Rotom, Drednaw, and Zapdos.

Final Thoughts

Mr. Mime is an excellent Pokémon in an extraordinary and selfless support role. Though fun to play, one just has to keep in mind not to venture out solo, while playing with this amazing Pokèmon. In case of falling behind, players must do some farming in safe territory and then meet up with the allies later to render highly-needed assistance to them.
