Pokemon Go Ditto September 2021 and How to Catch Shiny Ditto

Trainers, there is a change in the species of Pokemon that Ditto is transforming into in the wild, and you might end up with a Shiny Ditto in your collection.

Ditto can take the form of other Pokemon and finding Ditto can be very stressful. Currently, Ditto can take the form of 9 Pokemon in Pokemon Go, and thankfully, we know what Pokemon can be Ditto in disguise.

Now, let’s talk about Shiny Ditto and how it will be obtainable.

Shiny Ditto in Pokemon Go

Shiny eligible species can now be Ditto and you might end up catching a Shiny Ditto. This is new for everyone and we will explain how it works and how to get one.

  • If you encounter a wild Shiny Pokemon, it CAN NOT be a Ditto
  • If you encounter a non-shiny Pokemon, it can be a normal Ditto or Shiny Ditto

Let’s take a look at the list of Ditto disguises for September 2021.

Ditto Disguises September 2021

  • Gastly (can be shiny)
  • Drowzee (can be shiny)
  • Remoraid
  • Teddiursa (can be shiny)
  • Gulpin
  • Numel
  • Stunky
  • Dwebble (can be shiny)
  • Foongus

How to catch Ditto in Pokemon Go 2021

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 nine Pokemon in September 2021.

If you catch these Pokemon (see the list above), 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 catching a Ditto.

Also, for the first time in Pokemon Go, starting from September 1, 2021, to October 1, 2021, you can encounter Ditto and Shiny Ditto in Research Breakthrough encounters.

  1. I’ve caught 17 ditto so far since the season started. You just have to know what CAN be ditto and just catch as many of those pokemon as you can find. They’re not common, but if you catch a lot of possible ditto disguises, you’ll get some. The current ditto disguises are Gastly, Drowzee, Dwebble, Teddiursa, Remoraid, Gulpin, Numel, Stunky any Foongus.
