If Copycat is used and copies the move Round from an ally would the copied round have doubled attack power? 5hoo 21:50, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

what happens if the pokemon using it moves first? - unsigned comment from Auragirl (talkcontribs)

Switching

I just tested this and switching has zero impact on copycat in 5th gen. I'm not sure about 4th gen, but in 5th gen one or both players can switch multiple times and copycat will still succeed as long as the last move used by either player was a valid move for copycat and said move did not fail.

Helping Hand

At least in Gen VI, Copycat seems to always fail if the move last used was Helping Hand. It will happily copy Aromatic Mist and Hold Hands though, which have the same targeting, so it's probably due to the priority. --SnorlaxMonster 12:06, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
