Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Capable of copying an enemy's genetic code to instantly transform itself into a duplicate of the enemy.
Yellow When it spots an enemy, its body transfigures into an almost perfect copy of its opponent.
Gold It can transform into anything. When it sleeps, it changes into a stone to avoid being attacked.
Silver Its transformation ability is perfect. However, if made to laugh, it can't maintain its disguise.
Crystal When it encounters another DITTO, it will move faster than normal to duplicate that opponent exactly.
Ruby
Sapphire
DITTO rearranges its cell structure to transform itself into other shapes. However, if it tries to transform itself into something by relying on its memory, this POKéMON manages to get details wrong.
FireRed It can freely recombine its own cellular structure to transform into other life-forms.
LeafGreen Capable of copying an opponent’s genetic code to instantly transform itself into a duplicate of the enemy.
Emerald A DITTO rearranges its cell structure to transform itself. However, if it tries to change based on its memory, it will get details wrong.
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum
It has the ability to reconstitute its entire cellular structure to transform into whatever it sees.
HeartGold It can transform into anything. When it sleeps, it changes into a stone to avoid being attacked.
SoulSilver Its transformation ability is perfect. However, if made to laugh, it can’t maintain its disguise.
Black
White
It has the ability to reconstitute its entire cellular structure to transform into whatever it sees.
Black 2
White 2
It can reconstitute its entire cellular structure to change into what it sees, but it returns to normal when it relaxes.
X It has the ability to reconstitute its entire cellular structure to transform into whatever it sees.
Y It can freely recombine its own cellular structure to transform into other life-forms.
Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
Ditto rearranges its cell structure to transform itself into other shapes. However, if it tries to transform itself into something by relying on its memory, this Pokémon manages to get details wrong.
Sun It can reorganize its cells to make itself into a duplicate of anything it sees. The quality of the duplicate depends on the individual.
Moon With its astonishing capacity for metamorphosis, it can get along with anything. It does not get along well with its fellow Ditto.
Ultra Sun While it can transform into anything, each Ditto apparently has its own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to transformations.
Ultra Moon It transforms into whatever it sees. If the thing it’s transforming into isn’t right in front of it, Ditto relies on its memory—so sometimes it fails.
