Actually, they fixed this in generation IV. Any pokemon with the ability shadow tag can escape if the other pokemon also has the ability. So Wobuffet can switch out against another.

I was played FR, when I want to train my wobbuffet in cerulian cave, I met ditto lv49. and, my wobbuffet failed to run from it, and...you know what will happen next! how can I ended the battle in that situation?
Only using Struggle, I guess
So, we need to wait for 50 turns (20 counter, 20 mirrorcoat, 5 destinybond, and 5 encore) until someone use struggle? ouh...
TGI PokéBall :D
Can you press run?
You probably have to catch it if you don't want to wait...
