‘Ditto can’t use Struggle’ glitch
« on: February 13, 2018, 12:48:58 am »

This is a video where the uploader is documenting their attempts to beat gen 1 fighting only with a single Ditto. About half way through, their Ditto stops being able to use Struggle when they are out of Transform PP. No other Pokémon is unable to use Struggle, and transformed Ditto is also able to use struggle. The glitch wasn't fixed by depositing/withdrawing, putting Ditto in the daycare, saving/loading, or by beating the game. There is also a secondary glitch - if a 0 PP Ditto that can’t struggle is hit with Disable, the game softlocks.

I tried to find documentation on this glitch and couldn’t. Is it new or known?

I watched the video and also could find nothing about it online so I think it is a new discovery. Maybe struggle has a hidden pp value of 255 that isn't reset by healing or something? It also may depend on having no moves or have something to do with Transform?

Maybe this just doesn't apply to ditto but every pokemon.
