Mesprit (Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Psychic-Type, and is known as the Emotion Pokémon.) is the 147th Pokémon in the
Mesprit uses the Levitate Ability. This Ability prevents Ground-Type attacks from dealing any damage to it, allows it to run against an opponent that has Arena Trap, and it won't take damage from the Spikes Entry Hazard.
Mesprit doesn't evolve and doesn't have a pre-evolved form.
Mesprit takes on the appearance of a blue, levitating fairy with a pink head. It has a red gem on its forehead, and its eyelids appear to be blue. It has two smaller red gems; one at the end of each of its two tails.
Mesprit is a Genderless Pokémon species.
After stopping the master plan of Team Galactic and calming the Legendary Pokémon that involved in Diamond (Dialga, Pearl (Palkia), and Platinum (Giratina Origin Forme), Mesprit can be found at Lake Verity. However, after approaching Mesprit it will flee.
In games past, a Roaming Pokémon could be tracked in the Pokédex, but that isn't the case. Instead, Roaming Pokémon in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum can be tracked on the Pokétch's Map function, and will appear at random in the particular area in which the Monster Icon is flashing. It will try to flee on the first turn of any encounter, but won't have a move to counter any attempts to prevent its fleeing, such as using Mean Look or making use of Wobbuffet's Shadow Tag Ability.
In Black 2 and White 2, after defeating the Elite Four, visit the Cave of Being on Route 20. Doing so will unlock a cutscene in which Uxie, Mesprit and Azelf will fly away to different locations in the Unova region. Mesprit appears on the top of Celestial Tower, but won't appear until you step on a specific spot.
Mesprit can be found at the Underground Lake part of Quicksand Cave in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, but you won't be able to obtain it until after the credits roll. Mesprit is exclusive to Blazing Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Ruby Lake B12, but a Secret Slab or Enigma Part is required in order to encounter it.
Mesprit can be found at Soothing Shore Lake 2-3 in Pokémon Rumble Blast after meeting a total of five people.

Mesprit finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a wide movepool to work with and solid overall stats, Mesprit is among the tier's best and most versatile Pokémon. It has some great supporting options from Stealth Rock to Healing Wish, which both can provide invaluable support to a team. It has a useful resistance to Fighting attacks and an immunity to Ground attacks thanks to Levitate, giving it opportunities to switch in. Mesprit's best set is an offensive set with three attacks to go along with either Healing Wish or Calm Mind which uses its well-rounded offensive movepool to check numerous threats and do some significant damage. Mesprit can also run a Choice Specs set that acts as a powerful attacker while providing nice utility in Healing Wish, a physically defensive set that supports with Stealth Rock and can pivot out with U-turn, a Substitute + Calm Mind set that allows for Mesprit to set up against defensive foes without having to worry about debilitating status, an offensive Stealth Rock set that puts utility and power into one set, a Choice Scarf set that can act as a revenge killer, pivot, and solid Healing Wish user all in one, and a weather support set that acts as a reliable setter due to solid bulk while providing Stealth Rock support for Swift Swim and Chlorophyll sweepers. However, Mesprit struggles against Dark types like Skuntank, which can Pursuit trap it and turns it into a liability. It also does not have the best Speed for an offensive Pokémon, which makes it struggle against more offensively inclined teams. Mesprit also can usually not fit all of the moves it wants to on one set.
Mesprit is also viable in the Rarelyused (RU) tier of competitive battling. With great utility moves in Stealth Rock and Healing Wish, Mesprit is able to distinguish itself from other Psychic-types and can fit on numerous offensive teams due to those great utility moves. Its Speed stat is decent to the point where it can outspeed Absol and speed tie with Venusaur and Medicham. However, it struggles in the regards that it needs to be relatively healthy to be able to check Fighting-types and cannot deal to well with some of the Ground-types in the tier despite having Levitate. Mesprit also faces competition from Uxie, which has better bulk and is not as confined to a single playstyle. Lastly, Mesprit struggles to match up well against Meloetta and Sigilyph, two prominent Psychic-types that can use Mesprit as set up bait.
Mesprit cannot learn any moves by way of Breeding.
