Pokémon – “Mimikyu’s Song” Lyrics Translation [Localized & Rhyming]

I posted a literal translation of the Mimikyu Song earlier. Then a reader named aria came along and took up my challenge of making it rhyme and flow like a song should in English while keeping to the original meaning.

Check out their twitter here!

Enjoy!


 

Pikachu? Nope, I’m Mimikyu
The lonely and friendless Mimikyu
Sunlight and brightness is what I fear
Shade and darkness is where I’ll appear

Lonely and sad, I just want to have friends
And that’s why I choose to pretend
A Pikachu disguise, does it look good?
I made it myself, weren’t you nearly fooled?
But don’t take it off, oh no, don’t try!
You could get cursed, or worse, even die!

Pikachu? Nope, I’m Mimikyu
A monster? No, I’m just Mimikyu

My claws will protect you from any danger
My thunderbolt will always help my trainer
A loyal Pokemon that will follow you to the end
Come on now, won’t you be my friend?

Pikachu? Nope, I’m Mimikyu
Let’s be friends, I’m Mimikyu!
Pikachu? Nope, it’s Mimikyu
The lonely and friendless Mimikyu

Pikachu? Nope, I’m Mimikyu
A monster? No, I’m just Mimikyu
Pikachu? Nope, I’m Mimikyu
Let’s be friends, I’m Mimikyu!

 


They did a great job huh? : ) I would’ve thought it was an official write up. A big thank you to them!

If anyone else out there wants to give a shot at making the above rhyme while keeping to the meaning, by all means please do! I would love to see what you could come up with.

(Or even sing the above lyrics! That would be so awesome).

        • Its pretty easy so far, since I don’t frequent message boards or anything. So all I have to worry about is if some gaming news sites decides to stuff it in their article title, or someone directly links it on twitter/it trends or something. xD
