Day 53 and today's ability is Imposter, the signature and hidden ability of Ditto. This ability is the definition of turning a bad Pokemon into a good one.

Imposter: "As soon as the user comes into battle, it transforms into its opponent, copying the opponent's stats exactly, with the exception of HP. Imposter copies all stat changes on the target originating from moves and Abilities such as Swords Dance and Intimidate, but not from items such as Choice Specs. Imposter will not transform the user if the opponent is disguised or behind a substitute. Imposter does not copy its opponent's IVs, but it does copy all EVs except for HP.

In Double and Triple Battles, Imposter will affect the opponent in the position directly opposite it."

10/10 It is arguably the best ability Ditto could ever ask for, and makes it actually usable. Its benefits highly surpass its downfalls, and even though it makes Transform an obsolete move on Ditto, Mew actually makes better use of it anyway, so I don't find any reasons to rate it lower than 10.

Good ability, but it's applied to the wrong Pokemon. Needs to be on a Pokemon that doesn't already do what the ability does.

Haha what? There is literally no other Pokemon than ditto that should have this ability.

I'm honestly surprised ditto is still NU after the release of this ability. Played right it can almost always get at least 1 KO, and the potential to turn a set up sweeper against itself is amazing. The only thing to watch out for is substitute.

Shinji X Asuka is the most sacred pairing in all of anime. That is an unnegotiable fact.

One of those abilities that is only available to a piss-poor pokemon lest it got broken, and even then it made said pokemon get a huge jump in usefulness.

Without Imposter, what Ditto does is die. With it, it can revenge kill.
