At level 3, learn Light Screen. This move is perfect for blocking opponents and protecting teammates as it creates a screen of light that cannot be passed through.

Then once you hit level 4, replace Fake Out with Confusion, and at level 6, let Guard Swap take over Light Screen.

Because Mr Mime is a Supporter, you need Held Items that aid his role. For starters, you should choose the Muscle Band as it boosts Basic Attack damage. This is crucial for the early stages when defeating wild Pokemon to level up.

The Rocky Helmet is also a great item to equip as it not only increases your Defense but also unleashes a damaging AoE attack once you’ve lost a certain amount of HP to enemy attacks, hurting all surrounding opponents.

Lastly, the Assault Vest is another worthy pick. It increases your Sp. Def. when outside of battle, keeping you alive for longer when being beaten on. It also works alongside Guard Swap, increasing its effectiveness.
