Mimo (Japanese: ホシ Hoshi) is a recurring character who appeared in the Pokémon anime. She is Kiawe's younger sister and the daughter of Sima and Rango.


Mimo and Kiawe

Mimo debuted in Young Kiawe Had a Farm!, at her family's home at Paniola Ranch. She reappeared in Getting the Band Back Together!, where she attended a concert hosted by DJ Leo.

In So Long, Sophocles!, Mimo assisted the group in preparing a farewell party for Sophocles when it seemed like he was moving away.

In The Ol' Raise and Switch!, Mimo had some fun playing with Popplio, which Kiawe was looking after. She later warned him that two of the Tauros were fighting, and watched as Popplio helped calm them down.

In The Young Flame Strikes Back!, the future of the ranch came under threat of being turned into a hotel by a businessman named Viren. Mimo stood up to Viren, only to be targeted by Electivire's Thunder. Turtonator and Marowak stepped in to defend her, which resulted in Turtonator being knocked out. She later stood up to Viren the next day, only for Viren and his henchmen to be arrested by Officer Jenny for forging land owner documents.

In A Young Royal Flame Ignites!, Mimo watched the Battle Royal along with Kiawe and Marowak.

Mimo appeared during a flashback in Filling the Light with Darkness!, where Kiawe revealed that he and his sister were working on the farm whilst Rango and Sima were sleeping, due to the effects of Necrozma draining the Ultra Aura from the region.

In A Plethora of Pikachu!, Mimo visited Pikachu Valley with Ash and Kiawe.

In Lillier and the Staff!, Mimo watched Kiawe perform in the school play.

In Heart of Fire! Heart of Stone!, Ash and his classmates visited Paniola Ranch alongside Brock and Misty. Mimo provided them with some ice cream and watched as Brock helped treat a baby Kangaskhan who had been threatening some Miltank.

In Keeping Your Eyes on the Ball!, Mimo watched Kahili play a round of PokéGolf on TV.

In A Fiery Training Camp Trick!, Mimo wanted to go camping with Kiawe, Sophocles, and Ash, only for Sima to say they weren't going camping for fun. Mimo later visited the camp alongside Sima to provide food to the boys.

In The Final Four!, Mimo arrived at Manalo Stadium to cheer Kiawe on during his battle against Gladion. On her way there, she confronted Tupp, Zipp, and Rapp, who were spray-painting graffiti on the floors, only for them to send out their Pokémon. She was saved by Gladion and his Silvally, who took her to Kiawe. Mimo later sat with Kiawe's classmates in the stands and watched the battle between Kiawe and Gladion, cheering her brother on.

In Getting Down to The Ire!, Mimo continued to watch Kiawe's battle against Gladion, and observed as her brother lost. The Poké Problem segment revealed Mimo had begun to admire Gladion while heading home on a boat with her father.


Mimo is always keen to help out around the farm and gets annoyed with Kiawe whenever he stops her from lifting heavy objects, as he is concerned about her safety. She also views Kiawe as overprotective, but she still loves him a lot. Mimo is supportive of Kiawe, as seen in The Final Four!, when she visited Manalo Stadium to cheer Kiawe during his battle against Gladion. Despite this, it seems that Mimo has a secret crush on Gladion.[1]

Mimo is also close to Kiawe's Turtonator, as seen in The Young Flame Strikes Back!; after Turtonator got knocked out protecting her from Electivire's Thunder attack, Mimo was crying over it and even called it Turty.
