Hello fellow Smogonites and Shoddiers, it has recently come to my attention that through a glitch, Ditto can copy any moveset as long as it includes Rage. At first I thought, okay, well Smeargle can do that without the Rage, but then I realized, Smeargle can only breed with the Ground egg group, while Ditto can breed with any breedable Pokémon. Quote from the Bulbapedia glitch section of Ditto's page:
Therefore, it is now possible to obtain Pokémon that have egg moves from different families or groups such as a Tropius with Leaf Blade (Sceptile family) and Dragon Dance (Lapras or Charizard, Feraligatr families). Now I wonder if this will be implimented into Shoddy as Shoddy tries to be as real to the actual games as possible, (example: acid rain glitch,) or if it will be ignored by Shoddy because it is only a glitch and somewhat of an exploit to the egg move system. Discuss.Several more glitches involving Ditto's transformation have been discovered in Generation IV as well. In the original Japanese Diamond and Pearl, due to an oversight in the programming of Transform, a Ditto will copy the Pokémon's held item in addition to its species, allowing rare items to be duplicated. Another glitch allows for Ditto to transform and then permanently keep the moveset of the Pokémon it became, allowing for the passing down of previously impossible egg move combinations in a large-scale version of Smeargle's ability to do so with all Ground group Pokémon through Sketch.
