Mimey, Delia's Mr. Mime (Japanese: バリちゃん Barri-chan, ハナコのバリヤード Hanako's Barrierd) is a Mr. Mime who lives with Delia Ketchum. It does housework for her, apparently in exchange for room and board.


How it came to live with her is told in the episode It's Mr. Mime Time. Mimey was first seen by Ash and his friends using its Psychic powers to climb an invisible barrier it created. Ash wanted to capture it, but a ringmaster also wanted to capture it. In the chaos, Mimey got away. The ringmaster had wanted to capture it to inspire another Mr. Mime that worked on her circus. Brock decided to help and had Ash dress as a Mr. Mime to help instead. When Delia and Professor Oak went to the circus, they found out. When the Template:W Ash and his friends had saw earlier came to her door, Delia thought it was Ash in costume, and provided it with food. When the real Ash showed up, still in costume, she was quite puzzled, but wound up keeping the Mr. Mime as her live-in maid, affectionately calling it "Mimey".

Mimey and Delia

It will only listen to Delia, and if anyone else, even Ash, gives it orders, or asks it to do something, it will normally ignore them. Ash is shown to be somewhat envious of Delia's affection for Mimey; Delia once described it as more polite and helpful compared to Ash. It is unknown if Delia actually captured Mimey, as she is never shown with its Poké Ball. Because of this, it is not officially regarded as Delia's Pokémon, rather she just befriended it. When Ash and his friends returned to Pallet Town following the Orange Islands saga, it was revealed that Brock and Mimey had become rather competitive regarding household tasks while the two of them were sharing the house with Delia, although this was never touched on afterwards (albeit because Brock was never seen in Pallet Town again rather than because it was resolved). Ash and Mimey are on good terms, Mimey happily accepting Ash's friendly greetings on his return trips to Pallet Town. Ash in particular is glad that Delia has Mimey, as while he is on his journey, his mother will have company at home and will never be lonely.
