Nintendo Ability: Imposter
Back to list
Pokémon with this Ability have refined their transformation powers to near-perfection; they are thus able to Transform into the opponent immediately upon entering battle. The Bearer will exactly copy the opponent's species, type, moveset, stats except HP, EV's except HP, and any stat changes caused by moves or Abilities(changes caused by items are not copied). Imposter will fail if the opponent is an Illusion or behind a Substitute.
This Ability is exclusive to Ditto.
It transforms itself into the Pokémon it is facing.
