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 PP), 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

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.

## In the anime

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

## Trivia

• 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 will both use Transform until one of them runs out of PP and uses Struggle.
• 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, are the only known Pokemon to have the ability to use the move Transform, and have the same normal and shiny colors.
