Trivia

  • Although its English and French names suggest that it is exclusively male, female Mr. Mime are just as common as males, and in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, Sabrina herself has a female Mr. Mime as one of her Pokémon.
  • The Mr. Mime obtained through an in-game trade in Pokémon Red and Blue was nicknamed Marcel. This is possibly an homage to the late Marcel Marceau. However, this was not kept in Pokémon Yellow or Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen; the same Mr. Mime is nicknamed Miles and Mimien, in those games, respectively.
  • There was a guest villain in an episode of The Powerpuff Girls named "Mr. Mime".
  • Mr. Mime originally had four fingers on its hands, but in Generation III it was given an extra finger. It should be noted that the anime version of Mr. Mime always had five fingers.
  • Mr.Mime's color variations can be a reference to Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen or Pokémon Red and Green: Its normal color is red, while its shiny variation is green.
  • Because of the Hebrew dub of the anime, Mr Mime was often confused to be a water-type Pokemon in Israel, being that "Maim" in Hebrew means water, and his name was not changed in the dub.

Origin

It appears that it is based on a combination between a clown and a mime - together with a popular pantomime, pretending to be trapped in invisible boxes.

Mr. Mime was probably inspired by le Mime Marceau the most famous French mime in the world.

Name origin

Mr. Mime's name simply refers to mimes. Its Japanese name may be a combination of barrier and weird - indicating its ability to erect invisible walls - or barrier and barricade. Its German name comes from the word pantomime. Mr. Mime's French name is M. Mime (M. which is the official abbreviation of Monsieur).
