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

In Generation I

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

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

Copycat has a Doduo she has somehow taught to mimic human speech, like a Chatot.

In Generation II

In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, Copycat's Clefairy doll (which she received in Generation I from Red) is lost. It's found by a member of the Pokémon Fan Club in Vermilion City. When the player returns her lost doll, Copycat will give a ticket to ride the Magnet Train that travels between Kanto and Johto.

In 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; a "rail company man" gave her a ticket because of the demolition.

In Generation III

In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, Copycat is a move tutor who will teach Mimic to a suitable Pokémon in return for a Poké Doll.

In the anime

Copycat's anime counterpart may be Duplica.

In the TCG

This listing is of cards mentioning or featuring Copycat or her Pokémon in the Pokémon Trading Card Game.

Name Type Level Rarity Set Set no.
Copycat T Uncommon Expedition Base Set 138/165
EX Team Rocket Returns 83/109
EX Dragon Frontiers 73/101


  • In Generation I, an NPC in the Celadon Department Store mentions that he's trying to buy a Poké Doll for the Copycat in Cerulean. However, the Copycat lives in Saffron City.
  • The fact that she has Mario & Wario would make the Mario series a fictional universe in the Pokémon world. In addition, the "Pikachu" paper clip in Yoshi's Story points at the inverse, and all three Super Smash Bros. games points at both series taking place continuously in the same universe, thus creating a paradox.
