Pokémon – “Mimikyu’s Song” Lyrics Translation [Literal]

kantopia

Earlier, the Pokémon Company posted a new song featuring Mimikyu (from Sun/Moon).

Like with the Koiking song, I translated the lyrics (literally) below. It is meant to be a rap, so I eventually really want to work on a version that works rhythmically too, and that keeps a few puns. But as that will take a bit longer, I give the literal translation for those curious and want it faster.

The original Japanese lyrics can be found in the video description. (Or below). I added Romaji lyrics below my translation too if interested!

I assume there will be an official English translation that comes out… but that remains to be seen.

UPDATE: A lovely version of the song that flows well in English and rhymes was submitted by a reader named aria, read it here!
