Pokemon Sword and Shield – How To Evolve Mr. Mime Into Mr. Rime

Mr. Mime finally gets an actual evolution.

by Dean James


Mr. Mime has often been regarded as one of the least liked Pokemon in the first generation, though it has certainly still had its fans. Detective Pikachu gave us a strange, but hilarious version of Mr. Mime, and now Pokemon Sword and Shield have introduced a brand new Galarian Mr. Mime. Not only did they give us a new Mr. Mime though, as it also received a brand new evolution for the very first time.

How To Evolve Mr. Mime Into Mr. Rime

Mr. Mime was initially introduced back in Pokemon Red and Blue as a Psychic type Pokemon before later being turned into a Psychic/Fairy when that new typing was introduced in Gen 6. Two generations before that also brought a pre-evolution for Mr. Mime with Mime Jr., but the Pokemon has never received an actual evolution. Technically Mr. Mime itself still does not have an evolution, but the newly introduced Galarian Mr. Mime does with Mr. Rime.

We already covered how to find a Galarian Mr. Mime in another guide, so the focus in this guide is how to actually evolve this new form into Mr. Rime. Galarian Mr. Mime is a Psychic/Ice type Pokemon and evolving it is rather simple, as all you have to do is keep raising its level until it reaches 42. Once it reaches 42, it will evolve into Mr. Rime.

Considering how late in the game you should be catching Galarian Mr. Mime, it’s very likely it will already be past level 42. In that case, just raise it one additional level and it will turn into Mr. Rime at that time. Mr. Rime also learns Psychic at level 48, so make sure to try and get it evolved prior to that or you will have to go find the Move Reminder.
