Mimicry will activate after the Pokémon with Mimicry is switched in, or whenever there is a change in terrain; changing the Pokémon's type by other means (such as via Soak) will not cause Mimicry to activate and override that type change.
Mimicry will activate regardless of whether the Pokémon with Mimicry is grounded or not.
Outside of battle
Mimicry has no effect outside of battle.
