Pokemon Sword and Shield Mr. Mime - How to Get Kanto Mr. Mime and Mr. Rime

Here's how you can both Kanto Mr. Mime, as well as Mr. Rime in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

Mr. Rime is one of the brand new Pokemon in the new PokeDex in Sword and Shield, but that doesn't mean that Mr. Mime isn't returning. In this guide to both forms, we'll be walking you through how to get both Mr. Mime and Mr. Rime in Pokemon Sword and Shield.

How to Get Mr. Rime

If you're unfamiliar with this creature, Mr. Rime is the name of the Galarian version of Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield. While we'll detail how to get the normal version of Mr. Mime further down this guide, this section will detail where you can find Mr. Rime.

To find Mr. Rime in Sword and Shield, you need to make it to Route 10. This can only happen after you've beaten all 8 Gym Leaders in Sword and Shield, which effectively makes this endgame content. At Route 10, and only at Route 10, can you find Mr. Rime roaming the wilds of the area.

But in order to obtain Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you need to make it all the way to Spikesmuth in Route 9. This is where you'll take on the Dark-type Gym Leader Piers.

As you make your way through the town, you'll find it to overrun by Team Yell. You'll need to battle roughly five Team Yell Grunts to make it to the arena with the actual Gym Leader, and all the way you do this, a Mr. Mime will occasionally appear to hamper your progress, until you battle another grunt.

When you enter the arena with Gym Leader Piers, you won't immediately battle him. Before you reach the crowd of Team Yell Grunts and engage the leader himself, look towards the top of the arena, where you'll be able to see a lone Team Yell Grunt manning a stand.

Approach him, and he'll ask if you want to trade an Obstagoon for his Kantonian Mr. Mime. This is the only chance you'll have to get Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield because, as we detailed above, he goes by a different name for his special Galarian form.
