Mismagius: Best Moveset, PVP and Item Guide

The world of Pokémon has been a growing phenomenon since 1996, when the first pair of video games came out in stores. There are almost 900 individual Pokémon identified by the PokéDex and in this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about one of them – Mismagius. Mismagius is a pure-type Ghost Pokémon introduced in Generation IV of the core game series. It is the final and only evolution of Misdreavus, a Generation II Ghost Pokémon, which can evolve into Mismagius when exposed to the effects of the Dusk Stone. Mismagius does not have a Mega Evolution, nor any alternative or regional forms in the series, which means that it cannot evolve or change further.

In this article, we are going to tell you all the information you’ll need if you want to breed an Mismagius in any of the games. We’re going to focus on both the core games, as well as other popular video games based on the Pokémon franchise.

Mismagius: Best Moveset, PVP and Item Guide

In the Pokémon GO videogame, the best moves for your Mismagius are Hex and Shadow Ball if you’re battling Pokémon in Gyms. Namely, this moveset gives you the highest total DPS and is, likewise, the best moveset for PVP battles. The official description for Hex reveals the following: “The user attacks with relentless intensity. This move’s power is doubled if the target has a status condition”; as for Shadow Ball, the attack is described as follows: “The user hurls a shadowy blob at the target to deal damage. This may also lower the target’s defensive stats.”

Other moves that Aggron can learn across other games are:

  • Bold indicates a move that gets STAB when used by Mismagius
  • Italic indicates a move that gets STAB only when used by an evolution of Mismagius
  • × indicates a move that cannot be used in Generation VIII
