{{MoveResearch|In which games canCan Mimic copy Transform in Generations I, II and III?}}
===Generation I===
Mimic allows the user to select one of the target's moves to copy, as well as the move's maximum {{PP}}. The user will retain the copied attack in Mimic's place until it faints or is switched out, or the battle ends. Mimic can't copy {{m|Struggle}} because it is not a normally selectable move.
Mimic now bypasses {{stat|accuracy}} checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the {{cat|Moves with a semi-invulnerable turn|semi-invulnerable turn}} of a move such as {{m|Dig}} or {{m|Fly}}. It fails to copy [[Shadow move]]s and {{m|Chatter}}.

To trigger the glitch, a Pokémon must use Mimic to copy and use {{m|Transform}}, then faint. If the Mimic-using Pokémon's owner wins the battle, all moves gained from the use of Transform are retained after the battle.
===Generations V-VI===
The mimicked move now has the max PP as opposed to 5. Mimic is no longer able to copy Transform. If a {{p|Rayquaza}} mimics {{m|Dragon Ascent}}, it still will not be able to [[Mega Evolution|Mega Evolve]].
===Generation VII===
The mimicked move again has 5 PP.
Mimic fails to copy [[Z-Move]]s.
