'''Ditto''' (Japanese: '''メタモン''' ''Metamon'') is a {{type|Normal}}-[[Types|type]] [[Pokémon (species)|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 PP), types, and the appearance of the opponent. Another reason that they are unique is that Ditto can [[Breeding|breed]] with any Pokémon in a [[Pokémon Day Care|Day Care Center]] regardless of its gender, except other Ditto and legendaries with the exception of Manaphy.

Ditto (Japanese: メタモン Metamon) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. Ditto is an unique Pokémon because it can breed with any Pokémon in a Day Care Center regardless of its gender, except for another Ditto, Legendary (except for Manaphy and Phione) and Baby Pokémon. If a Pokémon can't breed with Ditto, it can't breed in any way.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Ditto's appearance is very plain. It is a simple pinkish purple, amorphous blob, with two smalls dots as eyes and a long, curved mouth. Though it's appearance can be changed via Transform. A shiny Ditto is blue as opposed to the normal purple. Ditto's cry is also known to be the same as Poliwag's in the game series.

TriviaEdit

  • In Generation IV, it's possible for Ditto to learn copied moves permanently by transforming into a Pokémon which knows Sketch, such as Smeargle.
  • A battle between two Ditto will never end, granted the only move they know is Transform. The reason that this occurs is when one Ditto uses Transform, it will restore the PP on its own move, thus allowing it to Transform into the other Ditto forever. This is possibly the reason why no Trainers in any main series game have a Ditto in their party, in case the player has one.
  • Ditto is one of the few Pokémon whose name is an actual word, along with Gloom, Golem and Persian, among others.
    • Ditto's dictionary definition is "to duplicate".
    • In Pokémon Red, Ditto is found in the Pokémon Mansion, which is the lab where Mewtwo experimentation was being done.
