Ditto (Japanese: メタモン Metamon) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Ditto are unique, as their only attack is Transform. They use this attack to copy the stats (except HP), moves (only 5 power points), types, and the appearance of the opponent. Another reason that they are unique is that Ditto can breed with any Pokémon in a Day Care Center regardless of its gender, except other Ditto.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Ditto in the anime

Ditto's appearance is very plain. It is a simple pinkish purple, amorphous blob, though it can be changed via Transform. A shiny Ditto is blue as opposed the normal purple. Ditto's cry is also known to be the same as Poliwag's cry in the game series.

In the anime[edit | edit source]

Ditto's first appearance was on IL037 wherein a Trainer named Duplica owned one.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Ditto's cry is similar to Poliwag's.
  • Ditto makes an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Melee.
  • In Generation IV, it's possible, by glitch, for Ditto to learn copied moves permanently by transforming into a Pokémon which knows Rage.
  • If a Ditto battles a Ditto, they would both keep on using Transform until one of them eventually runs out of PP and uses Struggle.
    • In Generation I, the battle would go on forever, as Transform would always have 5 PP.
  • Ditto can be only paralyzed when in the transformed mode.
  • Ditto's dictionary definition is "to duplicate".
  • Ditto is sometimes thought to be a failed attempt at cloning Mew. This is because they're both genderless, weigh 8.8 lbs., have similar base stats, and have the same normal and shiny colors.
