Pokedex data Edit

It is based on a Substitute doll.
Its name derives from Substitute and mimic (it mimics a Substitute).
Its preference for living near Psychic types was inspired by the fact that in Generation 2, Substitute wasn't a TM, thus making it the signature move of Mr. Mime, a Psychic type.
