Ditto has the ultimate ability to transform into pretty much any object or Pokemon it desires with only a few exceptions. With transformation, it also takes on that Pokemon’s abilities, making Ditto very versatile. However, if it tries to transform from memory, it might get some of the details wrong, and it may have a difficult time changing its smiling face.

Kartana is a grass/steel type Pokemon (which sounds like an oxymoron, but just go with it). Despite looking like origami, Kartana is extremely dangerous and is one of the “Ultra Beasts.” Since every part of its body is insanely sharp, it can slice through a tall tower with ease. Its lightweight body allows it to slip by attacks, and its main vulnerabilities are moisture and fire.
