There is a move in Pokemon called “Substitute” where you can make a substitute of yourself and avoid receiving damage.
It’s a move only meant to be used in the game world, but there seem to be people using it in reality.

The engineer that sits next to them was replaced by a Whimsicott Substitute plush!!
Engineer used Substitute! It’s not very effective…

There are Twitter users that try to use a “Substitute” to do their exercise or homework for them. If only it really did their work for them… but Substitute isn’t a Doraemon gadget!
Don’t get them confused.

Are there any times you would like to use Substitute to get out of something?
