Mikey (Japanese: タイチ Taichi) is a character of the day who appeared in The Battling Eevee Brothers.
In the anime
All of Mikey's brothers fought over how Mikey should evolve his Eevee. Despite the fact that all of his brothers wanted to see him train an Eeveelution as well, he preferred keeping his Eevee just the way it was. However, he did not have the courage to tell his older brothers this. Eventually, after some advice from Misty, he decided to try anyway. His brothers eventually came to accept Mikey's choice after witnessing Eevee battle Team Rocket and emerge victorious.
|Mikey trained an Eevee, which appeared in The Battling Eevee Brothers. At first, Mikey was too embarrassed of what his brothers may think, but later, he found out it was his choice to evolve it. It first appeared in a nearby forest, where Ash and his friends found it tied up inside a hollow tree with just food and water. Using its collar, they found out that it lives in Stone Town, so Misty picked it up to find its real owner. They found the Eevee brothers, who told them their younger brother Mikey was the owner. It eventually found Mikey. It was then revealed that the brothers wanted Mikey to evolve his Eevee into its different forms; he didn't want to evolve it and tried to hide it. Misty told him to stand up to his brother about how he feels.
Suddenly, Team Rocket appeared and stole it and all of the other Pokémon, as well as Evolution stones. The group eventually found Team Rocket by following the ink trail Misty's Horsea left behind and were able to free all of the Pokémon before sending Team Rocket blasting off. After the battle, Mikey told his brothers that he did not want to evolve Eevee, and his brothers understood that it was his choice. It was last seen in a picture.

Mikey appeared in To Evolve or Not to Evolve, That Is the Question!. His desire was to join the Knights of the E Stone, just like his brothers, but was denied due to him not having evolved his Eevee. Ash defeated Pyro and Rainer for him, but Sparky demanded to battle Mikey himself. During their battle, Ash took a time-out in order to use a TM to teach Eevee Mimic, allowing it to defeat Sparky's Jolteon and thus allow Mikey to join the Knights of the E Stone.
In Welcome to the Big Leagues, Mikey was seen watching the Indigo Plateau Pokémon League on his television.
|Mikey owns an Eevee, like in the anime. He used it to defeat Sparky's Jolteon in battle.
