In [[Generation I]], Copycat will give the [[TM]] for {{m|Mimic}} in return for a {{p|Clefairy}} {{DL|Escape item|Poké Doll}}.
In her bedroom, there is a [[{{nw|SNES}}{{tt|*|Super NintendoFamicom Entertainmentin System|SNES]]the Japanese releases}} with a game that has {{smw|Mario}} with a bucket on his head, a reference to the Japan-exclusive game {{smw|Mario & Wario}}, 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}}.
===Generation II===
[[Image:Copycat Sugimori Artwork.png|thumb|[[Ken Sugimori]]'s artwork of Copycat, dressed as {{ga|Ethan}}, from [[Generation II]]]]
In [[Generation II]], Copycat's {{p|Clefairy}} {{DL|Escape item|Poké Doll}}, given to her by {{ga|Red}} in [[Generation I]], is lost. It's found by a member of the [[Pokémon Fan Club]] in [[Vermilion City]] who is glad to have it as he loves Clefairy. However, he gives it to the {{player}} and decides to catch one himself. When the player returns to Copycat's house and returns her {{DL|List of key items in Generation II|Lost Item|lost doll}}, she will give the player a {{DL|List of key items in Generation II|Pass|ticket}} to ride the [[Magnet Train]] that travels between [[Kanto]] and [[Johto]].
Between the events of Generation I and Generation II, Copycat's house in Saffron City was torn down to make room for the Magnet Train station. According to her, a ''rail company man'' gave her a train ticket in compensation for the demolition. Her {{p|Doduo}} has also evolved into {{p|Dodrio}} in the meantime.
===Generation III===
===Generation IV===
In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, Copycat has the same role as she did in [[Generation II]]. However, her {{p|Doduo}}, which evolved into {{p|Dodrio}} in [[Generation II]], has been replaced by a {{p|Banette}}.

This listing is of cards mentioning or featuring Copycat or her {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in the {{pkmn|Trading Card Game}}.
* In the English localization of {{game|Yellow}}, a NPC in the [[Celadon Department Store]] mentions that he's trying to buy a {{DL|Escape item|Poké Doll}} for Copycat in [[Cerulean City]]. However, she lives in [[Saffron City]]. This oversight is not present in the original Japanese releases.
* Copycat has green hair on her [[Generation II]] artwork but brown hair in the latest artwork.
* In {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}, Copycat has a {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} from all the first four [[generation]]s, if counting her [[Pokémon dollDoll]]s:
** A {{p|Clefairy}} doll, representing [[Generation I]];
