With Pokemon Sword and Shield, players are able to evolve the fan-favorite Pokemon Mr. Mime for the very first time in the history of the franchise. Indeed, the Galarian Mr. Mime can be transformed into the adorable Mr. Rime in Pokemon Sword and Shield, and this brief guide looks to assist those players that are wondering exactly how to go about performing this evolution.
Of course, before a player can evolve a Mr. Mime into a Mr. Rime in Pokemon Sword and Shield, they will need to catch a Galar variant, and the best place to do that is around Route 10. Fans can also catch a Galarian Mr. Mime at Winter Hill Station or the Lake of Outrage if they prefer, but the Pokemon is much harder to find in these locations. That said, the rare Pokemon Dreepy can also be found in the Lake of Outrage, which may encourage some players to visit this location when hunting for their Mr. Mime.
It also worth noting that the Mr. Mimes that can be found in the Lake of Outrage are level 50-52, while the ones available around Route 10 and Winter Hill Station are level 45-48. This is all to say that if a player chooses to take on the more challenging Mr. Mimes, they should make sure to have some powerful Pokemon moves at their disposal.
How to Evolve Mr. Mime Into Mr. Rime in Pokemon Sword and Shield
Once a player has caught a Mr. Mime in Pokemon Sword and Shield, they can then proceed to evolve it into Mr. Rime. Fortunately, this process is exceedingly simple, as all a fan needs to do is level up their Mr. Mime once to trigger the transformation. This is because Mr. Mime will evolve into Mr. Rime upon hitting level 42, and since players will be capturing a Mr. Mime at level 45 or above from the aforementioned locations, a quick level up is all that is needed to begin the evolution.
Alternatively, players can have more control over the stats of their Pokemon by first evolving a Mime Jr. into Mr. Mime, which occurs at level 32, and then evolving it into a Mr. Rime at level 42. For fans that want the perfect Mr. Rime, this may be the preferred option, but the approach outlined above should be suitable for most players as they make their way through Pokemon Sword and Shield's Galar region.
