Strengths and Weaknesses

MOVESET 1 – Play Rough/Shadow Claw + Shadow Sneak /

Strengths
+ Shadow Sneak’s range potential enables Mimikyu to find its way onto enemy targets from really far away and it’s shadow mark allows Mimikyu to deal extra damage based on the hp the opposing Pokemon is missing for oppressive assassinations.
+ Play Rough is on demand, high damage, low cooldown, tracking invincibility frames for safely erasing single targets with very limited counterplay.
+ Shadow Claw still provides still fast single target kills and powerful low cooldown sustained scrapping if you opt for that.
+ Play With Me… functions as an alternative Slowbro Unite Move, making it extremely powerful at shutting down single targets both for offensive and defensive purposes.
+ Powerful 5 gank.

Weaknesses
– Lackluster laning phase pre 5.. assuming you lane with it.
– Needs large engages or distractions to get what it wants when people aren’t standing close to walls.
– Can’t secure.


Moveset 2 – Trick Room + Shadow Claw

Strengths
+ Trick Room offers very high mobility and damage reduction from sources outside of it, giving Mimikyu very good potential for outplays and close range scraps.
+ Shadow Claw offers high sustained rip damage and solid sustain to complement Trick Room.
+ Play With Me… functions as an alternative Slowbro’s Unite Move, making it extremely powerful at shutting down single targets both for offensive and defensive purposes.
+ Powerful 5 gank.

Weaknesses
– You’re limited to your Trick Room’s area for good output, so poorly placed Trick Rooms that get kited out leave you useless for a while.
– It’s not Shadow Sneak.
– Can be behind in upfront damage help outside of free boosted autos from casting Trick Room dashes.
