I was actually talking about the people who want to see ditto banned not the posters. There's just so many people who scream the ban hammer on ditto w/o any knowledge what so ever.
Out of curiousity, does quick powder still work on ditto when it is transformed?
None shall oppose our reign!
Check out my fanfic, Pokelypse chronicles. You won't regret it.
Input is appreciated.
Neither the Quick Powder nor the Metal Powder work for Ditto after it has transformed. The only item that can boost its speed after transforming is the Choice Scarf.
It has an infinite movepool, but a very difficult time using it.Even then, I don't think that justifies rudeness.I was actually talking about the people who want to see ditto banned not the posters. There's just so many people who scream the ban hammer on ditto w/o any knowledge what so ever.
I have little experience with ditto, but when I do face it and I'm using an offensive poke, I tend to go for the move that hurts ditto badly and the poke that's out. So far ditto has not even come close to sweeping me
Hard choice. Since Ditto with imposter can immediately copy the stats and moves of the opposing Pokemon it switches into, it would make sense for it to go to ubers, but then again, all the opponent would have to do is switch Pokemon. So in that sense, it would be in standard play.
DW Pokemon I can offer:
Ditto with Imposter Ability
Automatic transforms when switching in.
Copies all stat boost/drops of opponent
Can use Choice scarf for a revenge killer set
5 pp for mov limit
Has lower hp then most(may be higher then some fragile sweepers that it transforms into.)
Cannot use imposter if an opponent has a Substitute up.
Choice scarf sets lock Ditto into one move that it can only use 5 times
It seems prettybalanced to me so it should be Over Used not Uber.
Also anyone who says Imposter Ditto well be the same(tier/competive wise) as Zoruark didn't check Smogon. Ditto plays a a very different game then Zoruark and does/did pretty good in Smogon's BW tier as it acts like the perfect stat boosting counter and revenge killer(provided substitute is down.)
Spoiler:- Pokemon that I can breed and trade.:
DW females not listed
0 speed IVs
Pm or VM me for a Trade.

Illlusion and Imposter are actually nothing alike. That comparison is awful.Just because it can become another Pokemon doesn't mean anything. Zoroark having Illusion didn't do much to the tier. Hell, you don't see it doing much outside of being a false NP Infernape. A major thing that will prevent Ditto from going to Ubers is that it only has 20 total PP in after turning into the opposing Pokemon. Ditto also requires a large need to have knowledge of just about any Pokemon. It could become a Latios, the person would need to know how to use Latios. The use of Ditto basically require the skill of the user to be even remotely useful
Also, since ditto will be transforming into boosted pokemon oftenly, 5 PP is more then enough for it to sweep.
And your Latios example is also pretty bad. For one, anyone who is any good at OU will understand how pokemon there are used, even if they don't use them themselves. I've gotten the hang of plenty of pokemon on first try. Secondly, if you send it out on a Latios, it's a simple as hitting Draco Meteor. Then you're done. It doesn't take much skill to hit Draco Meteor instead of surf. And if you send it out on a +6 Salamence? We all know how that'll turn out.
While I do agree that it isn't uber worthy, I'm just pointing out that your argument isn't all that good.
And besides, it doesn't take much knowledge to know to use super power rather then ice punch on an Azumarill or whatever, so actually, it doesn't take much knowledge to know how to use ditto. It just requires that you are familiar with moves and types.
alot of my friends HATE my ditto, it's never gonna be banned. It doesn't require the most in-depth strategy, and its somewhat fun to use.
Dammit, I've been practically dead. Too busy fighting demons and shadows.......* points evoker at head*....... back to work...* fires*
† I am a Christian and proud of it! Copy and paste this if you are too.†
Found one on the Battle Subway...(was most likely hacked due to being shiny and being from an English game)...I should have used put that Chansey to sleep and then used Substitute again but no, I was acting so cool and I destroyed it with my Modest max Special Attack Venusaur's Solarbeam at +6 in the sun. Then came Ditto, hit me first. Mamoswine almost had it with Ice Shard but there went off Solarbeam, booting me off the subway at battle 7 with a loss.
I hope this is a lesson to you, let the foe's sweeper set up until it can't no more, sacrifice what you have in play, then send out your Choice Scarf Ditto, you're almost guaranteed victory.
I don't think or want it to be banned.
Uh, no shit, that's rather obvious. However just seeing a Ditto in your opponents party is an obvious giveaway, and as such, can easily be played around.Originally Posted by ParaChomp
I do not believe Ditto should be banned as it is able to be countered by teams by having good prediction

Ditto isn't even that good in Ubers. The only Dragon that he can safely revenge is Rayquaza, as Dialga just Dragon Tails you out (and if you Dragon Tail, you're locked into a Scarf Dragon Tail, which is bad for reasons I don't care to explain), Palkia either survives with Haban Berry or risks a speed tie with Scarf. Zekrom can viably run Scarf, and if you DM it, you become setup fodder for Arceus, Ho-Oh, Blaziken, etc. Kyurem-B/W can both run Scarf, and Ditto can't switch into CB/Specs Outrage/DM/Freeze Shock.

I hope they don't ban him. It is sooooooooo funny to watch as a ditto imposters haxorus and outrages it. This is the best revenge killer for dragons and ghosts. Plus, i think foes may rage quit if you try this on their fav pokemon. It counters some of the biggest sweepers in the ou relm. I hope it isnt banned. I don't want it banned.
