Harry sees Crouch junior disguised by Polyjuice potion in Snapes office. Why wasnt he possible to reveal Crouch jrs coverup through seeing both crouch and moody at the same time in "moodys" office, with the original moody being held captive in the box?

Moody's case may have some sort of protective magic that hides its contents from the Marauder's Map.--Matoro183 (Talk) 16:46, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

but, i thought any type of magic had no affect on the map? maybe he just was not looking at the defense against the dark arts office. -meena96

There are so many names on the map at once that Harry probably wouldn't notice Crouch's unless he was looking for him specifically. And he would see Moody's name come up in the Defense Against the Dark Arts office. Also, wasn't Crouch Sr. at Hogwarts during the Triwizard Tournament? At a passing glance, Harry would probably assume the name was his.
