This works in the Japanese versions of D/P.

In order for this to work, you must:

  1. Use mimic on the Pokemon who recently used transform
  2. Have the Pokemon use transform after learning it by the move mimic
  3. Faint your Pokemon that now knows transform by move mimic
  4. Win the battle

Congratulations! Your Pokemon knows the moves of the opponent Pokemon you transformed into, which is most likely a Ditto!

Hope I helped!

only on japanese?
what about english hgss??
In the English versions of D/P/Pt and HG/SS, there's a similar glitch called the rage glitch.

This works with Ditto transforming into a Pokemon knowing rage, but if you want to go even further, you can mimic transform from a ditto, and transform into another Pokemon that knows rage, but you need to be in a double battle for that to happen.

Once you've transformed into a Pokemon that knows rage, use rage, and wait until your Pokemon's "rage starts building." On exactly the next turn, the opponent must be captured or defeated.

Here is some double battle footage of the Rage Glitch:
