With the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield a number of Pokemon have been given new additions to their evolutionary chain or alternative forms to capture. One of these Pokemon is the much beloved Mr. Mime, which can evolve into Mr. Rime in the franchise’s newest games.

After the introduction of Mime Jr. in Generation 4 with the release of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl versions, another Pokemon has been added to the Mime evolutionary chain, bringing the dual Psychic/Ice-type Mr. Rime into the universe.

As is the case with many other original forms that can be found in the Galar Region, the Galarian Mr. Mime looks very different to what fans are used to. So, let’s take a look at where to find this species and how to evolve it.

Where to find Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield

Pokemon WikiMr. Mime has been in Pokemon since the very first games, Blue and Red, which released in 1996.

Mr. Mime has always been a somewhat elusive Pokemon in every game, rarely an easy one to catch, and the newest additions to the franchise mark no exception to this.

To capture Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you have to head to Route 10, around the Winter Hill Station and Lake of Outrage in either game. At Route 10, Mr. Mime has a 40% rarity according to, much better odds than the 30% rarity at Winter Hill Station or the 13% at Lake of Outrage.

In the latter location, Mr. Mime can be found between levels 50-52, while at Winter Hill Station and on Route 10 it’s more likely to be found between levels 45-48. Due to it being found in Galar, it will already be the Galarian form, meaning it’s ready to evolve into Mr. Rime as soon as you level it up.

Evolving Mr. Mime into Mr. Rime is a relatively simple process. All you have to do is level up your Mr. Mime to level 42, an easy task considering every Mr. Mime caught in the wild will be at least level 45. All you have to do is level up your Mr. Mime once and you’ve got Mr. Rime!

If you would rather train your Pokemon from a low level to get its stats in prime condition, you can also breed a Mr. Mime in the Galar region and evolve it up from Mime Jr., in which case it will evolve into Mr. Mime as soon as it knows Mimic – which it learns at level 32.

Doing it this way would mean your Mr. Mime evolves at level 42 and will statistically be better than one you’ve caught in the wild.

There you have it! A Mr. Rime to complete your Pokemon Sword and Shield party. The Psychic and Ice-type duality is a great combination to add to your team, but it does have a number of type disadvantages to avoid – such as playing against Fire, Rock, Steel, Dark, Ghost and Bug-type Pokemon.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
