James caught Mime Jr. by accident in ''[[AG147|Sweet Baby James]]'' after it purposefully initiated the capture mechanism on one of his empty [[Poké Ball]]s that had fallen on the floor. Mime Jr. previously resided with [[Nanny and Pop-Pop|the old couple]] who took care of an old vacation home of James's family; James went there when his Chimecho fell ill. Mime Jr. took an instant liking to James, keeping him company at night while he sat over Chimecho. James was thankful for this, and he told Mime Jr. that it was kindhearted. When it was time for James to leave, Chimecho was still ill, so he decided to leave it in care of the old couple. When he reached in his pocket to get Chimecho's Poké Ball, the empty ones fell out, and Mime Jr. rushed in. James asked why Mime Jr. would want to go with him, and the couple told him that Mime Jr. likes him and thinks he is a kind person. They also said "Looks like you've found yourself a good buddy in Mime Jr."

In ''[[DP049|Dawn's Early Night!]]'', Jessie used {{TP|James|Cacnea}} and Mime Jr. in the appeal round of the {{ci|Hearthome}} {{pkmn|Contest}}. Cacnea used {{m|Needle Arm}}, which Mime Jr. Mimics before using Tickle on Jessie as both Cacnea and Mime Jr. hug and tickle Jessie, spinning her around the stage. Cacnea then fires {{m|Pin Missile}}, which Mime Jr. mimics, into the sky and creating fireworks. This performance gets Jessie a high score, advancing her to the next round.

In ''[[DP033|All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go!]]'', James entered Mime Jr. in the [[Pokémon Dress-Up Contest]]. During the event, Mime Jr. was seen imitating a {{p|Claydol}} and a {{p|Chikorita}}. Its mimicking skills left [[Mr. Sukizo|the]] [[Officer Jenny|three]] [[Nurse Joy|judges]] very impressed, and it was selected as one of the five finalists. However, after [[Jessie]] and {{MTR}} decided to steal the [[Pokémon Egg]] prize, James and Mime Jr. were forced to abandon the competition to escape with the rest of {{TRT}}.
   
In ''[[DP123|Old Rivals, New Tricks!]]'', [[Jessie]] used it during the appeal rounds of a Contest. Jessie commanded Mime Jr. to use {{m|Teeter Dance}}, and after storing up energy for several seconds, it let out a massive version of the attack that got everyone (the judges, audience and even [[Marian]]) dancing. The impressive display allowed Jessie to progress to the finals.

In ''[[DP049|Dawn's Early Night!]]'', [[Jessilina]] used Mime Jr. and {{TP|James|Cacnea}} for the [[Double Performance]] required during the {{ci|Hearthome}} {{pkmn|Contest}}. Their performance started with Cacnea using {{m|Needle Arm}}, which Mime Jr. {{m|Mimic|mimicked}} before using Tickle on Jessilina. Both Mime Jr. and Cacnea hugged and tickled Jessilina, spinning her around the stage. After that, Cacnea fired {{m|Pin Missile}} upwards, with Mime Jr. once again mimicking. As the arrow-shaped pins collided, it resulted in a flashy fireworks display. Their performance got Jessilina a high score, placing her among the {{pkmn|Coordinator}}s advancing to the second round.
   
It was used in a battle with [[James's Carnivine]] during the [[Sinnoh Grand Festival]] in ''[[DP176|Coming Full Festival Circle!]]'' by [[Jessie]], where James was proud to see that they had won their round.

In ''[[DP123|Old Rivals, New Tricks!]]'', Mime Jr. was Jessilina's choice for the [[Appeal|Performance Stage]] of the {{to|Sandalstraw}} Contest. When she commanded Mime Jr. to use {{m|Teeter Dance}}, the {{pkmn|category|Mime Pokémon}} waited before fully executing the move, a strategy which Jessilina adapted from [[Ursula]], who always makes charging poses together with her Pokémon to leave an impression on the minds of those watching her performances. The act of storing up energy before unleashing the move amplified Teeter Dance's effect and got everyone in the [[Contest Hall]] dancing. The performance impressed the [[Contest Judge]]s enough for them to grant Jessilina a spot in the Battle Stage.

Mime Jr., as a Mime Pokémon, imitates what people do. Like {{TP|James|Chimecho}} before it, it regularly inserts itself at the end of the [[Team Rocket mottos|Team Rocket motto]] saying "Mime, Mime". It is seen fairly commonly out of its Poké Ball, similar to Chimecho, participating in Team Rocket's schemes. Also similarly to Chimecho, Mime Jr. is babied by James and he rarely lets it battle.
 
   
Mime Jr. has a great relationship with its Trainer and seems to quite like [[Jessie]], {{MTR}} and Wobbuffet. Like [[Dawn's Piplup]], it was shown in ''[[DP125|Battling a Cute Drama!]]'' to take insults straight to heart and sulk over them.

In the anime

History

Advanced Generation series

Mime Jr. and James

James caught Mime Jr. by accident in Sweet Baby James after it purposefully initiated the capture mechanism on one of his empty Poké Balls that had fallen on the floor. Mime Jr. previously resided with the old couple who took care of an old vacation home of James's family; James went there when his Chimecho fell ill. Mime Jr. took an instant liking to James, keeping him company at night while he sat over Chimecho. James was thankful for this, and he told Mime Jr. that it was kindhearted. When it was time for James to leave, Chimecho was still ill, so he decided to leave it in care of the old couple. When he reached in his pocket to get Chimecho's Poké Ball, the empty ones fell out, and Mime Jr. rushed in. James asked why Mime Jr. would want to go with him, and the couple told him that Mime Jr. likes him and thinks he is a kind person. They also said "Looks like you've found yourself a good buddy in Mime Jr."

James won a Pokémon Orienteering contest with his Mime Jr. in Off the Unbeaten Path.

In Spontaneous Combusken, Mime Jr. was used by Jessie, under the alias of Jessibelle, in the Chrysanthemum Pokémon Contest. They got through the round by preforming a Hula-Dance that was praised by the judges for showing of Mime Jr.'s cuteness. In the battle round, Mime Jr.'s first opponent was May's Combusken. Though it made use of its unusual Mimic and Tickle attacks, Mime Jr. was ultimately defeated when Combusken was energized by its mimicked Fire Spin and hit it with Sky Uppercut.

Diamond & Pearl series

With Carnivine at the Grand Festival

In All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go!, James entered Mime Jr. in the Pokémon Dress-Up Contest. During the event, Mime Jr. was seen imitating a Claydol and a Chikorita. Its mimicking skills left the three judges very impressed, and it was selected as one of the five finalists. However, after Jessie and Meowth decided to steal the Pokémon Egg prize, James and Mime Jr. were forced to abandon the competition to escape with the rest of Team Rocket.

In Dawn's Early Night!, Jessilina used Mime Jr. and Cacnea for the Double Performance required during the Hearthome Contest. Their performance started with Cacnea using Needle Arm, which Mime Jr. mimicked before using Tickle on Jessilina. Both Mime Jr. and Cacnea hugged and tickled Jessilina, spinning her around the stage. After that, Cacnea fired Pin Missile upwards, with Mime Jr. once again mimicking. As the arrow-shaped pins collided, it resulted in a flashy fireworks display. Their performance got Jessilina a high score, placing her among the Coordinators advancing to the second round.

In Old Rivals, New Tricks!, Mime Jr. was Jessilina's choice for the Performance Stage of the Sandalstraw Contest. When she commanded Mime Jr. to use Teeter Dance, the Mime Pokémon waited before fully executing the move, a strategy which Jessilina adapted from Ursula, who always makes charging poses together with her Pokémon to leave an impression on the minds of those watching her performances. The act of storing up energy before unleashing the move amplified Teeter Dance's effect and got everyone in the Contest Hall dancing. The performance impressed the Contest Judges enough for them to grant Jessilina a spot in the Battle Stage.

In Coming Full-Festival Circle!, Mime Jr. was used along with Carnivine in a two-on-two Contest Battle during the Sinnoh Grand Festival. Together they managed to defeat their opponents, allowing Jessilina to advance in the competition while making James very proud.

Following the Team Rocket trio's journey in Sinnoh, James was forced to leave Mime Jr. at Team Rocket's headquarters as it is not a Pokémon native to the Unova region, and would seem suspicious.

Personality and characteristics

Mime Jr., as a Mime Pokémon, imitates what people do. Like Chimecho before it, it regularly inserts itself at the end of the Team Rocket motto saying "Mime, Mime", after Wobbuffet says his name. It is seen fairly commonly out of its Poké Ball, similar to Chimecho, participating in Team Rocket's schemes. Also similarly to Chimecho, Mime Jr. is babied by James and he rarely lets it battle.

Mime Jr. has a great relationship with its Trainer and seems to quite like Jessie, Meowth, and Wobbuffet. Like Dawn's Piplup, it was shown in Battling a Cute Drama! to take insults straight to heart and sulk over them.
