Would a transformed ditto revert to its original form if hit with Tickle?

Did you actually mean Zorua/Zoroark? Cause Transform move cannot be reverts by any mean except switching to another Pokemon, Illusion can be break thought.
No I mean Ditto. It was sort of a half serious question. I asked because if a Ditto is made to laugh it can't keep its transformed state. Still I was curious if Tickle did in fact affect him differently.

Why would it? All Tickle does is lower the Attack and Defense of the opposing Pokemon. Ditto would still be it's transformed self.

Hope I helped. :)

Well the pokedex says making a ditto laugh will cause it to lose its transformation. It would actually be really cool if that worked.
I agree
Yeah, there are tons of hidden effects of moves like that. If curling up into a ball can raise the power of a move where you roll into the opponent (defense curl+rollout), or causing a thunderbolt to come down and strike when there's already a storm has better accuracy (thunder+rain), then tickling a ditto, especially when it is actually stated in the game, should do what the pokedex says it does.
Wow, I've always thought about that!

No... no moves will revert a transformed Ditto back to its original form. The only way Ditto reverts is by switching out.

Hey ShuckleMyPokeballs

I catch your drift becouse I also like the anime a lot ! This is only not the case in the games. I the games everything is a little more objective so al tickle do is lower your transformed Ditto's Attack and Defense by one stage.

hope I helped you
