===In [[Generation I]]===
In [[Generation I]], Copycat will give the [[TM]] for {{m|Mimic}} in return for a {{p|Clefairy}}-style [[{{DL|Escape item|Poké Doll]]}}.
 
In her bedroom, there is a [[Super Nintendo Entertainment System|SNES]] with a game that has {{smw|Mario}} with a bucket on his head, a reference to the Japan-exclusive game {{smw|Mario & Wario}} (which was, also developed by [[Game Freak]]).
 
Copycat has a {{p|Doduo}} she has somehow taught to mimic human speech, similarly to the abilities of a {{p|Chatot}}.
