Pokemon Go Ditto August 2022, How to Catch Ditto, Shiny Ditto and Odds

Ditto, the transform Pokemon is one of the most unusual creatures in the most popular mobile game Pokemon Go. Ditto can take the form of eleven Pokemon in August 2022, and if you are wondering how to get a Ditto and shiny Ditto, we got you covered.

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.

Ditto 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).

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 approximately 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. Just to remind you,  the chances of encountering Ditto are roughly 3%.

Here is the August 2022 Ditto list of disguises.

Ditto August 2022 Disguises

  • Bidoof (can be shiny)
  • Dwebble (can be shiny)
  • Ekans (can be shiny)
  • Finneon
  • Gastly (can be shiny)
  • Lillipup (can be shiny)
  • Natu (can be shiny)
  • Numel (can be shiny)
  • Spinarak (can be shiny)
  • Surskit
  • Swirlix

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.

Hi, gamers! You can call me Mr. DComplex. I'm a gamer, a hardcore gamer. My favorite genres are Action RPG and MMORPG. At the moment I'm using my PC as my only gaming platform, but soon I might get a new PS4 from Angel. Update - Angel did get me a PS4, oh wait, it's the PS4 PRO 1TB!!! Much love bro!


  1. I have 1 ditto but I think it was caught before the challenges where I needed to catch a ditto so now I’m stuck.

  2. I legit currently have 19 ditto and I’m going to get hate but I transferred legit at least 8nto.10 for more room no shiny ditto never came across any seen some in gyms but that’s it

  3. Tried to catch an Ekans, and put my phone in my pocket because someone was coming along. I look when they’re gone past and was like hold on I’ve never gotten an “oh?” on screen after catching something. I click and it turns into a Ditto and I was like wow that’s cool. Then I’m like wait that’s blue, Ditto is usually purple WAIT IS IT A SHINY OMG! And that’s the story of how I got a shiny Ditto.
