How would you react if Mimikyu's true form turns out to be your least favourite/most hated Pokemon?

    So I read this comic and the question popped up in my mind.

    Would people still find Mimikyu cute if it turns out to be their least favourite Pokemon? What if it’s a Pokemon that gave you hell in the games?

    I would still love Mimikyu even if it's true form turns out to be ugly. Really, that's all Mimkyu wants anyway. I like Fairy types in general, and I like the lore of Mimikyu.

    I kinda doubt its real form will ever be revealed. It's one of the great mysteries of the pokémon world, just like how Cubone's face looks like without the skull helmet.

    The fact that I don't absolutely hate any pokémon would probably mean I wouldn't hate Mimikyu either, if it looked absolutely terrible that might be among my least favorite pokémon with Bruxish, Pikachu and the Kami trio in their Incarnate formes but at least I'd still like clothed Mimikyu as much as I do now.

    I once saw some fan-art online that showed the black void under the 'Pikachu' rag as a cute little black dustball, like the ones you see in Studio Ghibli movies. I think I'd love Mimikyu more if that was its 'true' form.

    If it was something like this, however...


    ...I'd probably be even more scared of Mimikyu. :eek:

    (On a side note, wasn't Mimikyu's 'real' form already shown in the anime?)

    Given it's true form caused someone to die of fright, and put Meowth out of commission, Mimikyu's true form probably isn't any Pokemon we know of but something out of H.P Lovecraft. Only it acts cute because this is Pokemon

    Or maybe it's an upside-down Diglett

    Nothing could ever replace Lickilicky (aka Ickyicky) in my eyes as my most despised Pokémon. I only keep it around for Pokédex completion and the stuff it into a PC Box to rot away for all eternity. Mimikyu being shown its true self would probably make it more popular with its fans.

    I dunno, the hype they made about how horrifying its true self means just about anything revealed as the true form would kill that

    In the anime, Mimikyu's 'real' form was literally just a black ghostly blob with anime-star eyes. It was swimming in the sea though, so maybe it has a different 'true' form for when it's on land?

    I'm pretty sure that what you're referring to was Mimikyu's true form being deliberately shadowed, rather than being what it truly looks like; all it really tells us is that Mimikyu's body is probably amorphous in some way, which its Ghost typing makes unsurprising.

    That being said, for all people like to point out the (probably exaggerated, as plenty of Gen VII entries were) entry that talks about somebody dying from fright from seeing Mimikyu, Pokemon in both the games and anime are able to withstand being trapped inside of its disguise for the duration of Let's Snuggle Forever with no seeming problem (such as a visible fright in the anime, or an accompanying stat reduction if they survive in the games).

    I doubt my opinion on Mimikyu changes, even if it turns out to be Swalot/Probopass/Conkeldurr in disguise.

    Or it could be Meowth having a near-death experience and seeing something different to what we, the viewers, see as Mimikyu.

    So....is the question "what if there's actually your least favourite Pokemon hiding under Mimikyu's sheet?"

    If so, then my opinion of Mimikyu would not change, even if there was a Voltorb, Diglett or Dedenne under that sheet, because it would mean the Volorbs, Digletts or Dedennes that become Mimikyu aspire to be something better and I won't fault any living creature for what they were born as.
    Mimikyu's awesome, no matter what's under that sheet.

  13. Part of me actually likes to headcanon that Mimikyu looks like whatever you fear most, kinda like Boggarts in Harry Potter, and that’s why it doesn’t have a revealed true form yet. I wouldn’t be disappointed if we got a “true form” though, I rarely end up feeling truly negative about anything Pokemon tbh.

    My least favorite is Durant (The hate is based on my childhood fear of ants in large groups) and I doubt Mimikyu looks anything like it.
    But yeah, I'd still love Mimikyu even if it turned out to be an unloved Pokemon underneath.

    I'm also kind of afraid of ants. I got stung a few times when I was younger, so that's probably where the fear stems from, but they're hard workers and I like them for that.

    I'd switch to Breloom, so that it can waste Lucario with Mach Punch.

    I don't hate any pokemon so I don't know.

    Even if it's not to the extent the Pokedex suggests, Mimikyu's true form has been portrayed as too spooky for any Pokemon to give it justice. I got the impression that "Let's Snuggle Forever" is that Mimikyu's so scary it hurts the Pokemon

    I don't think my least favourite Pokemon could kill me out of terror, even if their ugly ghost resided under those rags. Of course it would still be shocking if those rags would be removed and the "emptiness"/"black blob" would represent themselves as an image of me being bear-snuggled forever by an ugly ghost of my least favourite Pokemon, but figuratively I've already seen that illusion and I'm still alive.... as a ghost owl.

    I doubt that I would hate Mimikyu. Even if I don’t like it’s design I’m still going to love the concept.
