Mimo (Japanese: ホシ Hoshi) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is Kiawe's younger sister and the daughter of Sima and Rango.


Mimo first appeared in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, at her family's home at Paniola Ranch. She reappeared in Getting the Band Back Together!, where she attended a concert hosted by DJ Leo.

Mimo reappeared again in So Long, Sophocles!, where she assisted the group in preparing a farewell party for Sophocles when it seemed like he was moving away.

Mimo reappeared yet again in The Ol' Raise and Switch!, where she had some fun playing with Popplio, which Kiawe was looking after. She later warned him that two of the Tauros were fighting, and watched as Popplio helped calm them down.

Mimo reappeared in The Young Flame Strikes Back!, where the future of the ranch was under threat of being turned into a hotel by a businessman named Viren. Mimo stood up to Viren, only to be targeted by Electivire's Thunder. Turtonator and Marowak stepped in to defend her, which resulted in Turtonator being knocked out. She later stood up to Viren the next day, only for Viren and his henchmen to be arrested by Officer Jenny for forging land owner documents.

Mimo briefly appeared in A Young Royal Flame Ignites!, watching the Battle Royal along with Kiawe and Marowak.

Mimo appeared during a flashback in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where Kiawe revealed that he and his sister were working on the farm whilst Rango and Sima were sleeping, due to the effects of Necrozma draining the Ultra Aura from the region.

Mimo appeared again in A Plethora of Pikachu!, where she visited Pikachu Valley with Ash and Kiawe.

Mimo appeared again in SM093, where she watched Kiawe perform in the school play.

Mimo appeared again in SM103, where Ash and his classmates visited Paniola Ranch alongside Brock and Misty. She provided them with some ice cream and watched as Brock helped treat a baby Kangaskhan who had been threatening some Miltank.


Mimo is always keen to help out around the farm and gets annoyed with Kiawe whenever he stops her from lifting heavy objects, as he is concerned about her safety. She also views Kiawe as overprotective, but it is shown that she still loves him a lot.
