When it was time for James to leave, Chimecho was still ill, so he decided to leave it in care of the old couple. When he reached in his pocket to get Chimecho's Poké Ball, the empty ones fell out, and Mime Jr. rushed in. James asked why Mime Jr. would want to go with him, and the couple told him that Mime Jr. likes him and thinks he is a kind person. They also said "Looks like you've found yourself a good buddy in Mime Jr."]]
James caught Mime Jr. by accident in ''[[AG147|Sweet Baby James]]'' after it purposefully initiated the capture mechanism on one of his empty {{i|Poké Ball}}s that had fallen on the floor.

James won a [[Pokémon Orienteering]] contest with his {{p|Mime Jr.}} in ''[[AG159|Off the Unbeaten Path]]''.
In ''[[AG162|Spontaneous Combusken]]'', Mime Jr. was used by [[Jessie]], under the alias of [[List of Team Rocket's disguises|Jessibelle]], in the [[Chrysanthemum Island|Chrysanthemum]] Pokémon Contest. They got through the round by preforming a Hula-Dance that was praised by the judges for showing of Mime Jr.'s cuteness. In the battle round, Mime Jr.'s first opponent was [[May's Combusken]]. Though it made use of its unusual {{m|Mimic}} and {{m|Tickle}} attacks, Mime Jr. was ultimately defeated when Combusken was energized by its mimicked {{m|Fire Spin}} and hit it with {{m|Sky Uppercut}}.

In ''[[DP123|OldFile:Jessilina Rivals, New Tricks!]]'', [[Jessie]] used it during the appeal rounds of a Contest. Jessie commandedCarnivine Mime Jr. to use {{mpng|thumb|Teeter250px|With Dance}},Carnivine and after storing up energy for several seconds, it let out a massive version ofat the attackGrand that got everyone (the judges, audience and even [[MarianFestival]]) dancing. The impressive display allowed Jessie to progress to the finals.
In ''[[DP033|All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go!]]'', James entered Mime Jr. in the [[Pokémon Dress-Up Contest]]. During the event, Mime Jr. was seen imitating a {{p|Claydol}} and a {{p|Chikorita}}. Its mimicking skills left [[Mr. Sukizo|the]] [[Officer Jenny|three]] [[Nurse Joy|judges]] very impressed, and it was selected as one of the five finalists. However, after [[Jessie]] and {{MTR}} decided to steal the [[Pokémon Egg]] prize, James and Mime Jr. were forced to abandon the competition to escape with the rest of {{TRT}}.

Together they managed to defeat their opponents, allowing Jessilina to advance in the competition while making James very proud.
Mime Jr., as a Mime Pokémon, imitates what people do. Like {{TP|James|Chimecho}} before it, it regularly inserts itself at the end of the [[Team Rocket mottos|Team Rocket motto]] saying "Mime, Mime". It is seen fairly commonly out of its Poké Ball, similar to Chimecho, participating in Team Rocket's schemes. Also similarly to Chimecho, Mime Jr. is babied by James and he rarely lets it battle.
