Kublock

Kublock (Japanese: コレダ Koreda) is a character of the day who appeared in A Talent for Imitation!. He is a world-famous movie director.

Kublock took a low-profile Ditto actor under his wing. The Ditto was able to use Transform so well that it looked more real than the Pokémon it impersonated. Because of this, Kublock had high hopes of Ditto becoming a big movie star, but this also caused Kublock to become very strict towards Ditto.

Ditto was eventually cast in a movie directed by Kublock about Gardevoir twins, with Ditto portraying one of them. However, the production became difficult due to Kublock's short temper and Ditto losing its ability to transform properly. After a failed take, Kublock scolded Ditto, causing it to run away in tears. Despite what had happened, Kublock admitted to his set manager that only Ditto could play the part it was cast for. As such, production was unable to continue.

Ash, Goh, and the set manager went looking for Ditto. They found it with Team Rocket, who had befriended Ditto and taught it how to control its nerves. Ditto eventually returned to the set, and with its newfound confidence, it was able to properly transform into Gardevoir. This time, Kublock was satisfied with Ditto's performance and was able to finish his movie.
