Tip #4. Choose the Best Type(s) of Pokemon

I. Mr. Mime Type Weaknesses
To defeat Mr. Mime you must first learn its Type weaknesses. Using specific Types of Moves that Mr. Mime is weak against will result in those Moves dealing Super Effective damage (25% damage bonus).
Mr. Mime is a Psychic/Fairy Type Pokemon, which means it is weak against the following Move Type(s) and will be vulnerable to the following damage multipliers:
PoisonSteelGhost
1.251.251.25
II. Utilizing Benefit of Super Effective Moves
Next we must identify Moves of the above Types. This is important as Moves that are Super Effective deal 25% additional damage. If a Pokemon has a double weakness, the Move will deal 56% additional damage.
In order to defeat Mr. Mime you will want to choose a Pokemon with Move Types Mr. Mime is vulnerable against. The moves of these types are shown below:

III. Pokemon Weakness(es) vs. Mr. Mime
Before we go any further, please take a minute to consider the following. Most of this guide is focused on dealing high amounts of damage in a short period of time, in order to beat Mr. Mime as quickly as possible.

However, it is important to note that defensive Type weaknesses play an important role in Pokemon Go battles as well.
First off, Mr. Mime can deal a great amount of damage using Zen Headbutt and Psychic. This is especially true if you are using Pokemon that are weak against these Move Type(s). The damage per second and ranking of this moveset is shown below.

While Zen Headbutt and Psychic is a strong Moveset, most of Mr. Mime's Moves will deal additional damage if used against certain Types of Pokemon as they will take increased damage from Mr. Mime. Depending on the particular Moveset of the Mr. Mime you are battling against, you will want to try and avoid using Pokemon of the following Types.
MoveXMr. Mime Moves are Super Effective Against
Confusion
Zen Headbutt
Psybeam
Psychic
Shadow Ball
On the other hand, there are certain Types of Pokemon in Pokemon Go, that will take less damage from the Moves of Mr. Mime. Therefore, to survive longer during Gym battles you will want to try and use Pokemon of the below Types when battling against Mr. Mime.
MoveMr. Mime Moves are Not Very Effective Against
Confusion
Zen Headbutt
Psybeam
Psychic
Shadow Ball
It is important to note that this is not the only factor in choosing the optimal Pokemon to defeat Mr. Mime. If you have a Pokemon with much higher CP and a high damage Moveset vs. Mr. Mime you will obviously want to use that Pokemon. You will be able to win the battle quickly before your opponent has even had a chance to deal much damage.

However, if you are using a Pokemon with average CP and an average moveset, choosing the right Type of Pokemon becomes much more important.
IV. Benefits of Type Weakness & STAB Damage
Getting back to the offensive side of battling, the next step is to identify which Pokemon have the capability of using Super Effective Moves against Mr. Mime.

Furthermore, we must identify Pokemon that are the same Type as the Moves they are using. This will result in an added 25% additional damage bonus, commonly referred to as STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus).
If you are new to Pokemon Go or to the damage mechanics in general, be sure to review the chart below before making your way to Section V. (Best Pokemon Movesets vs. Mr. Mime). It explains how Pokemon Go DB determines the best damage Moveset/Pokemon to beat Mr. Mime.
The following chart explains the terms used in this guide:

DPSDPS stands for Damage per Second. The DPS of each Move is calculated by taking the Power of a Move and dividing it by the time (seconds) it takes to actually perform the move (also known as a cooldown).
STABSTAB stands for Same Type Attack Bonus. When a Pokemon uses a Move that is the same Type as itself that Move will deal additional bonus damage. For example, if a Psychic Type Pokemon uses a Psychic Type Move it will deal 25% more damage.
Best Fast MoveThe Best Fast Move is calculated by taking the highest DPS Fast Move a Pokemon is capable of using. This includes the 25% STAB bonus. Generally every Pokemon in Pokemon Go will have one of two possible Fast Moves.
Best Charge MoveThe Best Charge Move is calculated by taking the highest DPS Charge Move a Pokemon is capable of using. This includes the 25% STAB bonus. Generally every Pokemon in Pokemon Go will have one of three possible Charge Moves.
Best Fast Move DPS vs. Mr. MimeBest Fast Move DPS vs. Mr. Mime is calculated by taking the Best Fast Move DPS w/ STAB and multiplying that DPS by 1.25 if Mr. Mime has a single weakness to that Type or multiplying that DPS by 1.56 if Mr. Mime has a double weakness to that Type.
