POTW Pokémon of the Week #7: Ditto

Call of Fate

Ditto is amazing for breeding and looks adorable, but without Imposter, using it in battle is a pain due to its all -around awful stats. However, since it can transform into a Mega Evolved Pokemon and doesn't need a Mega Stone for that, it can hold items like Life Orb, making it even more powerful. It also doesn't take up your Mega Slot, so you can still Mega Evolve one of your remaining Pokemon.
I liked Duplica's Ditto in the anime, but its ability to transform into objects was puzzling to me. Then again, one of its Dex entries does state it transforms into a stone before going to sleep, so this isn't all that surprising.
