Super Smash Bros. series

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Ditto first made its appearance as a random trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It was added as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate where it transforms into a purple copy of the character that summoned it.

Trophy descriptions

Melee

Every Ditto has the ability to copy a Pokémon's entire cell structure in an instant and become its exact replica. They're terrible at remembering techniques, but when they use Transform, they temporarily learn all of their foe's moves. If a Ditto starts to laugh, it weakens and can't hold its transformation.
