{{MoveResearch|In which games can Mimic copy Transform?}}
===Generation I===
Mimic allows the user to select one of the target's moves to copy, as well as the move's maximum {{PP}}. The user will retain the copied attack in Mimic's place until it faints or is switched out, or the battle ends. Mimic can't copy {{m|Struggle}} because it is not a normally selectable move. Mimic bypasses {{stat|accuracy}} checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the {{cat|Moves with a semi-invulnerable turn|semi-invulnerable turn}} of a move such as {{m|Dig}} or {{m|Fly}}.
 
===Generation III===
In {{Pokémon XD}} and [[Pokémon Colosseum]], Mimic cannot copy [[Shadow move]]s.
 
===Generation IV===
===Generation VII===
The mimicked move again has 5 PP.
 
Mimic cannot copy [[Z-Move]]s.
 
If powered up by a {{DL|Z-Crystal|Normalium Z}} into Z-Mimic, the user's {{stat|accuracy}} raises one stage.
