Pokemon Go Ditto January 2022, Shiny Ditto and the Odds of Getting a Ditto

Ditto is known to be the rarest Pokemon of them all, and it can transform literally into any Pokemon that exists in the Pokemon universe. Besides that, if you happen to encounter a Ditto, it might even turn out to be a Shiny Ditto, which is even rarer than its regular form. However, Niantic decided to make it easier for us and released a list of current Ditto disguises.

Many players wonder how to encounter one and fortunately, there is a list of Pokemon that Ditto is disguised as. As of this moment, the chances of getting a Ditto are very low, close to 3%.

There were some problems a while ago, where an encounter with a Shiny Pokemon would turn out to be a Ditto upon catching it. However, that is now fixed and a Shiny Pokemon can not turn into Ditto, even if that Pokemon is on Ditto’s current disguises.

Now let’s take a look at the famous list of Ditto’s current disguises.

  • Dwebble
  • Foongus
  • Gastly
  • Gulpin
  • Numel
  • Remoraid
  • Stunky
  • Teddiursa

Shiny Ditto January 2022

If you are on the hunt for Shiny Ditto, there are a few things you should know:

  • If you encounter a wild Shiny Pokemon, it CANNOT be a Ditto
  • If you encounter a non-shiny Pokemon, it can be a normal Ditto or Shiny Ditto
  • If you encounter a Shiny Pokemon from Ditto’s disguise pool, it cannot be a Ditto

A Ditto in the wild is remarkably hard to encounter, but do not despair. It might appear on your screen as a different Pokemon (a Pokemon from the list above) and it will reveal itself only after catching it. Until then, you are clueless.

Those wondering if there is any way/trick to encounter Ditto or Shiny Ditto in the wild, there is not. We recommend using a Pokemon Go Plus, Lures, and Incense.

  1. Um… there was like 1 I know at least maybe two research special event tasks last February. I have 1 84 IV on my main account. And then I think a 94 on my other second account. I’m curious how you didn’t know about it?
