Unlike most Mimikyu who cosplay as {{p|Pikachu}} so that they can make friends like Pikachu, Jessie's Mimikyu bears an intense grudge towards all Pikachu and only dresses up like one because it is the thing that it despises the most. As a wild Pokémon, Mimikyu agreed to fight alongside {{TRT}} so it could fight [[Ash's Pikachu]]. As seen in ''[[SM006|A Shocking Grocery Run!]]'', it even fights Pikachu when its Trainer told it not to, because of its intense hatred towards him. Every time it sees Pikachu, it always engages in battle, which is helpful for Team Rocket, as it is their lifelong goal to capture Pikachu. However, this has not always worked out in Team Rocket's favor, as shown in ''[[SM013|Racing to a Big Event!]]'', when Mimikyu tried to attack Pikachu during the [[Pokémon Pancake Race]], thus disqualifying itself due to the race's rules, much to Jessie's chagrin. This was also shown in ''[[SM062|Acting True to Form!]]'' when Mimikyu attacked the cage that Pikachu was trapped in with Shadow Claw and that attack ended up allowing Pikachu to get out.
As demonstrated in ''[[SM014|Getting to Know You!]]'', Mimikyu will also often refuse to fight any opponents that are not Pikachu, further displaying its obsession, but it did willingly attack [[DJ Leo#Dugtrio|DJ Leo's Dugtrio]] in ''[[SM023|Getting the Band Back Together!]]'' and a Totem Alolan Raticate in ''[[SM025|A Team-on-Team Tussle!]]''. It did also attack [[Ash's Rowlet]] in ''[[SM012|The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!]]'', although it could have done so due to it disrupting its own battle with Pikachu. In [[SM111]], Jessie ordered Mimikyu to use Shadow Ball on a group of {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Meltan}}, its lack of interest in battling anything other than Pikachu resulted in it firing a small Shadow Ball which didn't go far. Mimikyu will not always do as its Trainer commands. It spends a lot of its time outside of its [[Poké Ball]], wandering around and generally doing as it likes, including going for a swim, as seen in ''The Sun, the Scare, the Secret Lair!''. Although it did not have a strong relationship with Jessie at first, its bond with its Trainer grew in ''[[SM038|Mimikyu Unmasked!]]'' when Jessie repaired its torn disguise and Mimikyu protected her from a flock of {{p|Murkrow}}. Since then, its relationship has continued to grow as shown in ''[[SM060|Getting a Jump on the Competition!]]'', when it competed alongside Jessie in the [[Pokémon Sled Jump Games]] and put on a performance with no attempt to disobey its Trainer. Also, Mimikyu does get along with the other members of Team Rocket, {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Stufful}} and Bewear. Like everyone from Team Rocket, Mimikyu does get scare of Bewear, which was mainly shown in [[SM114]] when she flew into a state of rage for the way Pheromosa hurt and treated Team Rocket.
Mimikyu's speech, according to {{MTR}}, is very intimidating. When Team Rocket first met it, both he and the normally chipper {{TP|Jessie|Wobbuffet}} were deeply disturbed by Mimikyu's words. Since its debut, it is often seen scaring Meowth. In the [[Poké Problem]] for ''Mimikyu Unmasked!'', Mimikyu has its disguise washed and dried on a clothes line.
