Mismagius (Japanese: ムウマージ Mumargi) is a Ghost-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Misdreavus when exposed to a Dusk Stone.

Biology

Mismagius is a purple, ghost-like Pokémon. It has a round head with elaborate tufts resembling a witch's hat atop it. The tips of the tufts are paler than most of the body. It has a thin, red mouth that resembles the letter "W." Below its head, Mismagius has a long neck with a round lump midway down. Three, elliptical red spheres surround the upper portion of Mismagius's body. There are extensions on the sides of its lower body with the foremost ones tattered compared to rear ones. This gives Mismagius the appearance of wearing some kind of cloak.

If it is powerful, Mismagius can use advanced incantations for various purposes, such as causing misery or happiness. People that hear its cries will usually receive headaches and hallucinations. As shown in the anime, Mismagius can put its victims to sleep, and cause them to enter a strange dream world without their noticing. If Mismagius falls asleep or is knocked out, the victim will wake up.

In Coming Full-Festival Circle!, Zoey's Misdreavus was revealed to have evolved into a Mismagius. It was used in the semifinals of the Sinnoh Grand Festival alongside Zoey's Leafeon to battle Nando's Kricketune and Lopunny. Mismagius and Leafeon managed to win against Nando based on points.

In Zoroark: Master of Illusions, Grings Kodai has owned a Mismagius since it was a Misdreavus. It served Kodai faithfully and helped him by using its Psychic to prevent Ash from stopping Kodai from taking the energy from the Time Ripple and renewing his ability to see the future. Mismagius was later defeated by Pikachu's Volt Tackle.

Two Mismagius appeared in Mystery on a Deserted Island!, where at least one of them was part of the Pirate's Pokémon crew. Multiple Mismagius later appeared on the Deserted Island with the treasure. They were the first Pokémon to attack the group as well as Team Rocket.

Trivia

Origin

Mismagius seems to be based on the concept of mages and witches. It also shares similarities with banshees. Mismagius's coloration might be a reference to the Nasu-babā, a witch-like yōkai with a distinct purple skin. Its shape also resembles the Teru teru bōzu.

Name origin

Mismagius may be a combination of mis- (bad, wrong) and magus or magic.

Mumargi may be combination of 夢魔 muma (nightmare) and mage or magic.
