How to Get Shiny Galarian Mr. Mime in Pokemon GO

Everything's better in black. Even Mr. Mime.

Mr. Mime has always been a strange fellow. Human-shaped and yet relegated to secondary-citizen status by a harsh and arbitrary legal system, what a cruel fate. Galarian Mr. Mime has not fared much better, but it has one thing going for it! As of February 18, 2023, it can be found Shiny! Here is how to get Shiny Galarian Mr. Mime in Pokemon GO.

Now that Galarian Mr. Mime has its debut, it is the perfect time to start Shiny hunting for this blacker, more classic version. Although, finding a Mr. Mime can be difficult on even the best day, and Galarian Mr. Mime? Almost impossible.

There are a handful of region locked Pokemon in Pokemon GO, which encourages trainers to both travel and befriend other trainers. Mr. Mime falls into this category, as it can only be found in Europe. But Galarian Mr. Mime is on another level entirely. This icy pantomime can only be found during events. So, it is best to take advantage of them when they come, especially since they tend to occur only during the winter months.

Until March 1, 2023, it’s possible to encounter Galarian Mr. Mime as a reward for Research Breakthrough Encounters. And, yes, it is possible for it to be found Shiny this way! Unfortunately, the Psychic-Type Pokemon is just one of six reward options, so you will need to grind through as many Research Breakthrough Encounters as possible. Or find a friend or stranger who does not mind trading you one.

Once you have Galarian Mr. Mime, you might wonder how it does on the field.

In the Great Leagues, it fairs well enough, falling just below Pokemon like Octillery and Shadow Porygon. If you intend to throw it into the ring, the best moves for it are:

Fast Attacks

  • Confusion

Charge Moves

  • Ice Punch
  • Psychic

It can be difficult finding Galarian Mr. Mime, so good luck!
