    so after the nerf eiscue seems to have taken the place of the invincible for 1 turn effect so is mimikyu still a good pokemon?

    by that i mean the nerf is to the disguise ability it now takes 10% dmg instead of none

    It’s a good Pokémon imo, but even before that nerf which btw I haven’t heard of, it wasn’t THAT good. mainly because of the predictable set it has.
    I don’t remember battling against a non SD Mimikyu with Shadow Sneak and Play Rough.

    I don't think it was ever an amazing Pokémon, but now it definitely is pretty average.

    I just had a look at Eiscue's Bulbapedia page, and at first glance I'd say no. Ice Face doesn't protect against special moves, which is a bit of a problem. As well as this, I'd say that Mimikyu is still better based on movepool and stats as well. Although as @scattered mind said it is highly predictable, I have come across it using Trick Room or even Curse; there's not much that Eiscue has going for it in terms of either offensive prowess or support utility, so I'd say that Mimikyu is still better in my honest opionion.

    I think Eiscue is a better sweeper because of its moves and stats, but if you're looking strictly for a disguise-like ability then I'd say Mimikyu still has the better one.

    Eiscue can belly drum and then have its speed doubled so it's a better sweeper at the very least but it's super weak to priority
