In its natural state, Ditto is a light purple or magenta free-form blob with vestigial facial features. It also appears to have two vestigial, handless 'arms' protruding from its body. It is capable of transforming into an exact replica of any physical object. However, if Ditto tries to transform into something based on memory, it may get some of the details wrong. Ditto cannot mimic the strength of another Pokémon, but it will adapt the form and abilities of its foe. Ditto is never far from civilization or people.
