part 2: The Meeting
It took Ditto a couple of weeks, but he finally
reached the house of imate. Ed and Carol left on a different route to earn badges two week
ago and Ditto was once more alone. Upon reaching there he saw a large crowd waiting for a
"Wow Duplica must be really popular. Look at
this crowd." Ditto said aloud.
"You bet kid." Said a man standing near
them. "A few years ago she started this playhouse with her pet Ditto. Since then she
found more Dittos and pokemon show that became a big hit. But the only thing that is
even bigger is Duplica herself."
"And why is that, if I may ask?" Ditto
asked wanting to know more.
"Are you kidding? Shes the main
attraction. Some people say that she herself is really a Ditto and thats how she
does her copying so fast." Ditto thought he maybe finally found what he was looking
for. The doors opened and he entered the building.
Ditto watched Duplica show. It was a great show.
Duplicas Dittos did many shapes and copies of other pokemon, but it disappointed
Ditto. These were ordinary Dittos, nothing like him. But he was still willing to talk with
Duplica to know if she can direct him to where she found her Dittos. In a way she
impressed Ditto. He had never seen another human that was as good at copying as she was.
Of course she wasnt as good as a Ditto was, but good enough none the less. In
a way shes quite lovely. For a human. Ditto thought to himself. After the show
was over he stayed there and went back backstage to meet her. "Hello is anyone
here." Ditto spoke out into the back.
"What a minute." A voice said. A few
moments later Duplica came out. She was wearing jeans and a orange shirt with a star on
it. "If you want a autograph can you come back later." She said.
"No that not it. I want a word with you."
"Look. If youre a talent agent, no I
wont sign. I dont want to leave the house imate."
"No thats not it either."
"Then what is it?" Duplica was confused.
"Allow me to introduce myself. I am a
"Thats a clever sir, but even I know that a Ditto can create a human
"Thats not true. Ask me to morph in to
anything and Ill do it."
"OK, then. If you really are a Ditto and can do
what you say, why dont copy me."
"OK." A light surround Ditto. When it
dimmed Ditto looked exactly like Duplica. Duplicas jaw dropped. "Is that proof enough
for you." Ditto also talked exacted like her too. Ditto reverted back to his own
"How did you? How can you? Are you a
"Allow me explain to you who I am and why
Im here." Ditto explained his tale to Duplica.
"I see. I didnt know Ash captured a Ditto,
but I didnt realize that a Ditto could create a human image. I tried to teach my
Dittos that but they really couldnt do it."
"You see first learned to fuse images together,
then over time I was able to copy humans."
"That really doesnt explain much. Did you
ever think that you are a new type of Ditto."
Ditto sighs. "A new type. I never thought of
that. Then I could truly be alone."
"Dont feel sorry for yourself Ditto.
Im sure that you can find someone that could care for you."
"You just dont understand. Im alone
in the world. I have no one that is like me."
"Dont worry. If you like you can stay with me for a while. I could even put you
in the show if you want to." Duplica laid her hand on his shoulder.
"Thank you. That is very kind of you. I accept
your offer." Ditto stayed at the playhouse for about a week. Over that time Ditto
helped around the place, by cleaning and other things. Duplica tried to get her Dittos to
spend time with Ditto, but they really didnt like him on the fact that he might
replace them, so Ditto spend most of his time with Duplica when she wasnt with her
Dittos. Ditto started to even feel happy when he was with Duplica. Ditto was thinking
about something when Carbon one of Duplicas pokemon approached him.
"You look sad human. What is bothering
you?" Carbon asked.
"There is something on my mind and I cant
figure out what it is."
"Explain what your problem. Then maybe you can
"OK Ill try. I feel that I must move on
and return to my master, but I cant seem to leave this place. I dont know why
but when I try to leave something inside of me wants me to stay."
"That sounds strange indeed. A Ditto never has a
reason to stay anywhere, yet you dont wish to leave this place." Carbon
pondered for a moment. "Could it be that you have what other call emotions."
"Emotions. That cant be. A Ditto
doesnt feel emotions, we just mimic them."
"But you are not normal Ditto. You do things that we can not do. It would make sense
that you would develop emotions as well."
"So now have emotions. But it still doesnt explain why I cant leave
"The other Ditto and myself have been talking
about you. We see that you like our master but dont wish to be her pokemon."
"Im owned by Ash. I couldnt leave
even if he would release me."
"That may explain that. But you look happy when
you are with her. Could it be that why you cant leave is that you are in love with
"WHAT? That cant be. I cant fall in
"Why not. You have emotions and you feel happy
when you are with her."
"I do feel happy when Im near her. But it
would never work. She is a human and no matter what I look like Ill still be a
"That is also true. But we believe that we can
make it work."
"We will make her one of us."
