I doubt Mimic would, but perhaps Metronome.
This is something I might experiment on this weekend...
I'll run it down with a better explanation this time:
== Battle Turn Begins ==
Kamek orders Alakazam to use Disable, and the enemy trainer orders Pidgeot to use Mirror Move. The usage of Mirror Move at this point is 100% legal because it is not disabled yet.
Alakazam is faster, so it goes first. It uses Disable, and Pidgeot's Mirror Move is disabled.
Now it's Pidgeot's turn. If Alakazam had disabled, say, Sky Attack, and Pidgeot was going to use Sky Attack, a message would come up saying the move was disabled at this point and Pidgeot would lose its turn. Instead, Pidgeot uses Mirror Move anyway, and copies the Disable attack, disabling Alakazam's Psybeam.
== Battle Turn Ends ==
The question is, why was the use of Mirror Move allowed even though it was disabled on the same turn? Is it because:
a) Pidgeot was really using Disable and not Mirror Move, because the effect of Mirror Move is to use the move that the enemy last used, and Disable was not disabled, so it was a legal move?
b) Mirror Move is somehow immune to the effects of Disable if both Mirror Move and Disable are used on the same turn?
c) Alakazam was on crack?
This is what I intend to find out. I dunno about those rental pokemon, though, some of 'em are real druggies...
