I'm currently using Mamp Pro for a local dev environment on Mac OSX Mountain Lion. Ideally I'd like to update the version of mysql.
How do you upgrade the MYSQL version that Mamp Pro uses?

The simple answer is "You don't" - MAMP Pro is an integrated development tool, and if you elect to use it you're essentially stuck with the versions it provides.
If you need something it doesn't provide you have to manually install, configure, and manage the components (OS X, Apache, MySQL, and PHP).
