Ditto, known as the Pokemon that is the main cause of migraines among the community, is one of the most unusual creatures in the most popular mobile game Pokemon Go.
Ditto’s one move, and frankly, the most important one is the Transform move. With this one, Ditto gets the ability to transform into the opposing Pokemon and copy its moveset. And this mesmerizing ability is available in the game, allowing players to have fun with it. That is if you find Ditto in Pokemon Go.
The Transform Pokemon was introduced in the game back when Trainers had the famous Pokemon Go Tour: Kanto Special Research quest (you had to buy a ticket for it) and was later made available (oh, the irony) for every Trainer.
Ditto is extremely hard to encounter in the wild, and the evidence for it is the low chance of seeing Ditto in the wild, which is below 3%. You may have seen Ditto, not as itself, but as other Pokemon and it will reveal itself once you successfully catch the Pokemon. Plus, there is a Shiny Ditto too, and that one is even harder to find. Great, right?
Many players wonder how to encounter one and fortunately, there is a list of Pokemon that Ditto is disguised as. 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 below) and it will reveal itself only after catching it. The chances right now of encountering Ditto are roughly 3%.
The developers behind the game have somehow managed to make our lives easier and decided to make a list of possible Ditto disguises. Here is the May 2022 Ditto list of disguises.
Ditto May 2022 Disguises
- Ekans (can be shiny)
- Gastly (can be shiny)
- Natu (can be shiny)
- Lillipup (can be shiny)
- Dwebble (can be shiny)
But what if Ditto is disguised as a Shiny Pokemon? This is impossible to happen because Ditto cannot transform into a Shiny Pokemon. If the encounter you have is with a Shiny Pokemon, it does not matter if it is part of the Ditto disguise list it will not turn into Ditto upon catching it. However, there is a slight chance of you encountering a non-Shiny Pokemon and it turning into a Shiny Ditto.
From the list above, the Pokemon that do not have a Shiny version are Surskit, Finneon, and Swirlix, which means that you might have a bigger chance of encountering a Shiny Ditto disguised as one of these.
