This poll is now closed.
The move it Mimics will remain in the movepool even if the user switches, like with Sketch. But unlike Sketch, it wears off when the battle is over.

In addition, its priority is raised to 6, so the move will always go first. (The move it Mimics though will have its Normal priority however, so Flare Blitz is still at 0, and Roar is still at -6).

Wow, not a single vote. I usually get at least one by now. Either this board is more active than usual or less than usual.

The good news is that with that form of mimic, it lets you strategically predict the opponents move, and keep it for the remainder.

Two problems arise, though:

#1: It is horribly unreliable still. You have to predict the right move, and if you get it wrong you might as well not have run mimic in the first place. Most people will go with something more reliable.

#2: it is still horribly slow. The biggest issue with mimic, and also the one I was hoping you would fix, is that you have to blow a whole turn learning one move. This is the equivalent of literally doing nothing for a turn.


I would sooner fix problem #2 than make the change battle permanent. That is an easy enough fix, though: just make it so mimic uses the move it learned when it learns it.

It would need a new name considering "mimic" means imitating. You can't exactly imitate something you haven't seen yet. Wouldn't make sense if it went first.
