| Indubitably Ditto/VS. Ditto
Indubitably Ditto or VS. Ditto (Japanese: VSメタモン VS. Metamon) is the 128th round of the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Crystal and Eusine are attacked from behind by Ditto, as the Ditto had stretched part of its body underground while they were talking. Ditto stops Crystal from being able to reach her Poké Balls, and Eusine attempts to use his Electrode to electrocute Ditto. However, Crystal reminds him that electrocuting Ditto would also electrocute them. While she thinks of a plan, Crystal is pulled completely inside of Ditto. Ditto gloats, but is quickly knocked out by a punch. As it releases Crystal, it is revealed that Monlee was the one who threw the punch, and that Crystal was crouched beneath him. Crystal had been able to send out her Pokémon, and have Monlee make a human shape for her, in order to confuse Ditto.
Once Ditto is defeated, Crystal and Eusine decide to use the Pokédex tracking system in order to track down Suicune, and thus, the person who sent Ditto to distract them. Because of the speed in which Suicune and the people following it are moving, Crystal decides to use Parasee's Spore at a specific range in order to stop them. Eusine hands Crystal a doll, and then leaves. Through the doll, he tells her that they should split up: one would go after Suicune, while the other would deal with Team Rocket. Crystal decides to follow Suicune through Route 38 and to Ecruteak City.
Eusine reaches the Team Rocket members as they wake up. Eusine realizes that the Octillery he sees is who had used Ice Beam earlier. He decides to wait until the effects of Spore wear off before he takes them all in a battle.
