introduced herself as from the House of Imitay which is known for imitating. Duplica
likes to dress up and change into costumes so she can imitate people like Officer Jenny
and Nurse Joy
explained to Ash Ketchum
and his friends that she wants to become the greatest Ditto Master and a big star, not a Pokémon Master like Ash Ketchum
is known for her perky and curious personality. She also has a large wardrobe of clothes that she uses as costumes so she can transform her looks.
When Ash Ketchum
and his friends first met Duplica
, she was training her Ditto which was having problems transforming perfectly. Her Imitehouse theater wasn't getting any patrons because they didn't want to see a Ditto that couldn't transform perfectly. Team Rocket appeared and stole Duplica's Ditto
and tried to get it to transform. It wasn't until Meowth
threatened to use its claw on Duplica's Ditto
that it finally was able to transform properly. Duplica's Ditto
tried to transform again and was able to transform perfectly from that point on. Duplica
was very grateful and thanked Team Rocket for getting her Ditto to transform perfectly.
reopened the Imitehouse theater after her Ditto could transform perfectly in the hopes that passing travelers would visit and watch her act with her Ditto.
