Mismagius is the 73rd Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Ghost-Type, and is known as the Magical Pokémon.
Mismagius is is the Amorphous Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Mismagius 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Mismagius takes on the appearance of a Misdreavus that donned a cloak, which merged with its body. The three spheres that form its necklace take on an elliptical form after evolving, and its head gains a tuft that takes on the form of a witch's hat.
Mismagius doesn't have any differences to differentiate between male and female.
Mismagius appears at Dark Crater DPBB7-B14, Dusk Forest 1F-8F and Mt. Mistral 1F-19F in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Mismagius is exclusive to Stormy Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing on the Path to Treasure Mountain B8-B14 and the following floors of Legendary Wetland: 27-30, 33 & 34, 38 & 39, 41, and 46 & 47.
Mismagius roam the hallways of Almia Castle in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Mismagius appears in the Submarine after it crashes, as well as four different locations in the Oblivia Region's Sky Fortress in the Present, and in the Light Temple Mission "At Last, Arceus and the Light" in the Past by defeating it and obtaining its Slate.
The only way to obtain a Mismagius in Pokémon Conquest is to evolve Misdreavus.
Trading Card Game
Mismagius is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Platinum Set, and as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl, Stormfront, Rising Rivals, Unleashed, Undaunted and Call of Legends sets. A second Mismagius is listed in the Rising Rivals set, but this one is an Ultra Rare Lv. X Card.
A Wild Mismagius caused problems for Ash and company in the episode Malice in Wonderland!, sending them into an illusion world. Thankfully they were able to break the illusion and move on in their journey. Fantina would use a Mismagius in the episodes Playing the Leveling Field, Barry's Busting Out All Over! and Shield with a Twist.
Most recently, Zoey would use her own Mismagius in the episodes Coming Full Festival Circle! and A Grand Fight for Winning!, which were the Semi-Finals and Finals of the Sinnoh Grand Festival. Zoey's team of Mismagius and Glameow would prevail over Dawn and her Pokémon by an extremely slim margin.
The villainous Kodai would use a Mismagius in the film Zoroark: Master of Illusions, the only appearance in the films by a Mismagius as of writing.
Fantina would also use a Mismagius in the Manga, using Trick Room to turn the tables on Lady Platinum Berlitz. That is, until she used Dia's Munchlax, which took advantage of Trick Room to defeat Fantina's Mismagius.
Mismagius finds itself in the Neverused (NU) tier of competitive battling. With a Ghost typing to block Rapid Spin, Taunt to prevent Defog, and a great Speed stat, Mismagius is very capable of preserving a team's entry hazards from being removed. It has a plethora of support moves, ranging from Will-O-Wisp to Thunder Wave, which allow for it to act as a solid support Pokémon and stallbreaker for balanced and offensive teams. With immunities to Ground, Fighting, and Normal-type attacks, Mismagius has a decent amount of opportunities to switch in. While its Special Defense stat is solid, Mismagius suffers from a low Defense stat that can make it difficult for it to switch in against more offensive teams. It is quite vulnerable to faster attackers such as Tauros and Archeops, and it dislikes Speed tie matchups against the likes of Scyther, which can OHKO it if it wins the speed tie. Mismagius usually has to use a Colbur Berry to prevent from being easily Pursuit trapped or KOed by Knock Off, meaning that it can be worn down due to a lack of passive recovery in Leftovers, especially if not running Pain Split. Mismagius's most notable niche is a support set that showcases its nice movepool, as offensive sets are usually outdone by Rotom and Haunter, which possess either better power or a secondary STAB that make them more offensively threatening in comparison to Mismagius.
