As we all know, Ditto is the rarest, most unique Pokemon in Pokemon Go. This one-of-a-kind Pokemon is able to transform into any Pokemon in the game. This also makes it harder to see it. Fortunately, there are few tricks to speed up this process, which you will know if you keep on reading this post!
Ditto, in the mainline Pokemon games, is useful for duplication rare Pokemon. It is quite interesting that it is labeled as a genderless Pokemon and can breed with every known Pokemon. In Pokemon Go, Ditto has its trademark move which copies the other Pokemon, but it isn’t able to breed with them.
Nevertheless, Ditto is very important in the mobile game mainly because it unlocks quests that have different Pokemon as a reward, and it is a great addition to your Pokedex.
If you happen to catch Ditto in the wild, you should know that you are very lucky, because this is extremely rare. On your screen, it will appear as another Pokemon spawning in the wild and it will not reveal its true identity until you catch it.
This is good though because Ditto can only be disguised as few Pokemon.
If you catch these Pokemon (see the list below), eventually some of them will happen to be Ditto. Its stats are not important, because it is not used in battle. It copies moves and stats from the opposing Pokemon anyway.
Your luck is the determiner of when you will catch Ditto, but there are few tricks to get it faster. The easiest one is getting a Pokemon Go Plus, which catches all Pokemon that are near you without opening the app. Another trick is to use lures and incense. These two tools will increase spawn rates, which means that you will increase your chances of getting a Ditto.
Which Pokemon can be Ditto?
NOTE: It appears that some shiny forms (Shiny Weedle, Shiny Paras) can now be a Ditto in disguise. Now, we’re not sure if this is a new thing or someone at Niantic pressed the wrong button.
