I was on my way to Fuschia in LeafGreen, and to avoid the trainers on Route 15, I decided to go through the dreaded tall grass. I saw the most amazing Pokemon I had ever encountered (even to this day), the Ditto:
My life was never the same. Every time a Ditto lays its eyes upon me, or vice versa, I "befriend" it by throwing Pokeballs at it. In fact, I involved my family in this adoration for Ditto, and now we collect lots wonderful and majestic Ditto items, from plushies to cards to pins.
