Copycat (Japanese: モノマネむすめ Mimic Girl) lives in Saffron City. She collects Pokémon Dolls, and likes to dress up as and mimic others. Copycat is not her real name; rather, her nickname.

In the games

Generation I

In Generation I, Copycat will give the TM for Mimic in return for a Clefairy Poké Doll.

In her bedroom, there is a SNES with a game that has Mario with a bucket on his head, a reference to the Japan-exclusive game Mario & Wario, also developed by Game Freak.

Copycat has a Doduo she has somehow taught to mimic human speech, similarly to the abilities of a Chatot.

Generation II

In Generation II, Copycat's Clefairy Poké Doll, given to her by Red in Generation I, is lost. It's found by a member of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City who is glad to have it as he loves Clefairy. However, he gives it to the player and decides to catch one himself. When the player returns to Copycat's house and returns her lost doll, she will give the player a ticket to ride the Magnet Train that travels between Kanto and Johto.

Between the events of Generation I and Generation II, Copycat's house in Saffron City was torn down to make room for the Magnet Train station. According to her, a rail company man gave her a train ticket in compensation for the demolition.

Generation III

In FireRed and LeafGreen, Copycat has the same role as she did in Generation I. However, she is now a Move Tutor who will teach Mimic to a suitable Pokémon instead, due to Mimic no longer being available as a TM.

Generation IV

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Copycat has the same role as she did in Generation II.
