Gender

Was Mimey's gender ever confirmed? (Don't forget that the female of the species is also named 'Mr.') --FabuVinny 15:54, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

I think Mimey has been referred to as "he" (at least in the dub). Dan

Correct Spelling

I was just thinking about this when I corrected a Wikilink that said "Mimie." Do we know for sure that "Mimey" is the correct spelling of Delia's Mr. Mime's name? I know it was spelled as Mimie in the title for the episode, but I don't know for sure. Thoughts? --PAK Man 22:33, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

This is a good question, since the episode it first appears in is called It's Mr. Mimie Time. I've never actually seen it written, though. I guess we could find something in old Pokémon.com archives (if they exist)? They use to write summaries of the anime episodes. --Johans 21:06, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
I'm sure it's Mimie... TESHTALKSAND 20:37, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
The closed captioning referred to Mimey as Mimey. My money's on "Mimie" on the title card of EP064 as being an error. --Shiningpikablu252 20:40, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Why I reverted the picture

Mr. Mime looked weird in the one Kuki chose. Plus it was glitchy looking. Please don't put it back Kuki. --ケンジガール 23:12, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Don't worry because I love your new pic--KukiTalk 23:22, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Good. Glad this was resolved without conflict. --ケンジガール 23:25, 21 September 2008 (UTC)


"Refreshments?" Seriously? --ニョロトノ666 23:27, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

What? It's better than some of the words other users put. --ケンジガール 23:32, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Sprite

KG, can u update it please?--KukiTalk 23:29, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

Page Contradictions

On a link to this page (on the episode Mr Mime Time) is states Delia nicknamed him "Mimie" due to the titlecard, but when you click it you see his nickname is "Mimey". I know this page calls him Mimey due to closed captioning, but the trivia on the episode says his name is "Mimie" due to the titlecard making a joke or whatever. So which is it, and should this page (or the other one) be fixed? CherryParanoia 19:20, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, even someone trying to get names by-ear probably wouldn't get "Mimie" out of Delia's dialogue. Even the audio alone would tend to lend to a "Mimey" spelling. I'm 99.99% sure that there's no way the title card was typed that way on purpose. My : Whoever thinks the title card is the way to spell this Mr. Mime's nickname has about half a brain cell max. And it's probably out shopping. --Shiningpikablu252 23:28, 25 November 2009 (UTC)
Thats an opinion. :) Then if thats the case, someone should fix the "Mimie" portion on the episode's trivia. CherryParanoia 03:20, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

Evolved?

Should we put Mime Jr. in Mimey's evolutionary line?--EpicShadow 00:13, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

No. There's no indication that it evolved from a Mime Jr. We don't have Pichu in Ash's Pikachu's evolutionary line. --AndyPKMN (talk) 11:44, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
We should if a Pikachu or Riachu breeds they produce a Pichu. There is no exeption for that one unlike Mime Jr. who needs to be produced with an incens.--EpicShadow 15:58, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
No. No assumptions. If it was not shown, or at the very least mentioned (as a fact only. If it's mentioned as a possibility then it doesn't count), then that evolutionary stage is not added to the infobox. Werdnae (talk) 20:51, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
What about Guild Master Wigglytuff? His info box states that he spent an unkown amount of time as an Igglybuff and a Jigglypuff. Was that mentiond anywere?--EpicShadow 21:01, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Yes, in Sky you can play as him when he was an igglybuff, it's canon Ataro 21:03, 15 November 2010 (UTC)
Oh yeah... I had forgoten about that, sorry. I think I'll bring this up on Pikachu's Talk page see what some of the others have to say. If they agree with me then it gets added. If they agree with you then it stays as it is. Also I would like to make it clear that I am only doing this because I think we should have a few more opinions and that it is in no way out of disrespect or a competitive state of mind.--EpicShadow 21:16, 15 November 2010 (UTC)

Why I denied Mimey as Delia's Pokémon

First of all, Delia never even captured Mimey, she just befriended it and takes care of it. And she's not a certified Pokémon trainer anyway. Satoshi101 22:16, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

First of all, where's the proof that says she was never a Trainer? And while there's no concrete proof, the fact Mimey has lived with her for every season since the first and only listens to her commands kind of insinuates that they're closer than landlord and tenant. Anyway, what you've added is already said later in the article. When you've had your edits reverted twice already, perhaps there's a reason? Blazios 22:33, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
Ahem... Misty's Togetic anyone? She never captured it yet it is hers. So... Why should Mimey get special treatment? --ケンジガール 22:42, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

Misty's Togetic was acquired as an egg. Delia Ketchum was just Prof. Oak's student. Misty was a trainer to begin with, and like Ash, she had to get a license somehow. Satoshi101 19:00, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

There are no "licenses" in the anime. One can become a trainer at the age of 10 and that's all that is known. Delia sometimes uses Mimey in battle and issues it commands. That alone makes you a trainer. Also, the egg did not belong to Misty, if you are forgetting. It was found by Ash and carried around by Brock. It saw Misty first and thought she was its mother. That's the only reason she has it. She never formally caught it.--ケンジガール 19:08, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Then why wasn't Haunter or Larvitar Ash's? And there are so licenses, Ash said in the first episode "Now that I'm ten, I can finally get my Pokémon License!" It's you who needs remembering. Satoshi101 04:42, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

And the anime also made reference to specific levels early on which has also been dropped. The last time they mentioned a license is what, the second episode? A lot of things they said back then ended up not really being canon. As for Haunter and Larvitar, Haunter really just decided to tag along for one episode and never once battled before leaving, while I'm pretty sure Ash knew he was going to end up giving up Larvitar in the end. He was supposed to just give the Egg to Professor Elm, right? Blazios 14:10, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Proffesor Elm wanted to release it. And things can't become uncanon. There are just exceptions. Mimey is a Pokémon Ash wanted to catch, and him living with Delia means it's already owned? You better think about it. Satoshi101 04:16, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

If a license is still canon, explain why there's been no mention of it for the past 693 episodes. Of course, this matters not when you consider the fact that there's no proof she doesn't have one. Regardless of what Elm planned to do with it, the fact remains that Ash knew from the beginning that the Egg would never be his, which is why Larvitar isn't counted. There's also the fact that none of Ash's unofficial Pokémon are still in his possesion, while Mimey is still living with Delia after 12 seasons. Blazios 07:20, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

No proof? They never mentioned it at all. Delia befriended Mr. Mime. Ash has commanded a few Wild Pokémon and yet they aren't his. Someone could think Mimey was a Wild Pokémon and just snag it. Is Mimey Delia's and nobody else can take it? No! Mimey wasn't caught! Bulbasaur lived with Melanie. Melanie's Bulbasaur? No. Satoshi101 19:27, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

They also never mentioned that any other character in the entire series other than Ash had one. Does that mean they're all illegally training Pokémon? Ash commanded a few Wild Pokémon once, ones that never joined him or stayed for any decent length of time, as opposed to living with him for the past decade and only obeying his commands. Bulbasaur simply volunteered to guard the Hidden Village, it wouldn't matter who run the Hidden Village or if Melanie left, Bulbasaur would have stayed. Blazios 19:49, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

So does this mean you think Mimey is Delia's, illegal to be caught by someone else like Ash? Mr. Mime are very rare. Satoshi101 20:38, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

You're assuming two things: 1) that pokémon must be caught, or else they are wild and 2) that a pokémon couldn't make a decision to stay with a human on their own volition, without that whole "caught" business going down. Mimey chose to stay with Delia, caught or not. In the mean time, it is "hers" out of technicality. Being called "Delia's Mr. Mime" isn't wrong, when phrased like so: "the Mr. Mime of Delia's". In comparison: "Delia's housekeeper" and "the housekeeper of Delia's". It doesn't have to be seen as ownership!possession, only relation!possession, to say, "Delia's Mr. Mime;" you just instinctively see it as ownership in the strictest sense. Luna Tiger * the Arc Toraph 22:14, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Now I understand. Satoshi101 00:03, 14 June 2011 (UTC)

Unova
