  • Ditto! And an awesome transformation...

    This episode is one of the best ones I've ever seen and one that I'll never forget. I liked the way that Team Rocket was very clever enough to threaten and scare Duplica's Ditto into transforming right. At least their talent is to help others as well, even though they can't admit that. But the Team Rocket motto Ash and the gang imitated was so hilarious because that got Team Rocket steamed! -laughs-moreless
  • I really like this one.

    This one is like one of my favorites because its like awesome. I used to watch Pokemon all the time and believe me. I've seen like every episode there ever has been made. I kinda felt sorry for Duplica though. Cuz she worked and worked on ditto but couldnt get him to get his face right. This episode is kinda weird though because Team Rocket got the credit. They took Ditto to their house and he just suddenly got the face right! Then Duplica broke down and started crying and blah blah blah. But this is a good episode n e wais.moreless
  • Ash and friends come across an imitating mansion

    This episode is more humor than anything. There is some action with the battle between Ash's bulbasaur and Duplica's ditto, but it's still fine. It's always humor when an imitation is going on, especially on team rocket. The look on their faces as Ash and his friends were doing their motto were hilarious. Poor Ditto just can't seem to get its copy ability correct. It always ends up with its same face. Team Rocket actually helps for once by making ditto perfect its transformation, even though they scared into doing it. Now Ditto and Duplica can live happily ever after with their business.moreless
