A Mimikyu with these moves will primarily be offensive, but it will provide good support through Misty Terrain. As this is an offensive build, you will want the Adamant nature to increase Mimikyu's Attack. A Sitrus Berry is a good held item, as this will trigger when its health drops low and restore it.

With Mimikyu's Disguise ability, it can take one hit before attacks start to damage it. This guarantees that you can set up Swords Dance to give Mimikyu a great boost to its Attack. After this, you should begin attacking with Play Rough or Shadow Claw, whichever will be super effective against your opponent. Misty Terrain can be used when needed, primarily to prevent status moves from affecting your team.
