Pokémon GO Ditto September 2023, how to find, catch, and shiny Ditto odds

Trainers, Ditto, the Transform Pokémon, has always had a certain mystique about it. Notorious for its shape-shifting abilities, this elusive creature has made quite an impression on Pokémon GO players. But what exactly makes Ditto so hard to catch? Let’s dive into the nitty-gritty of Ditto’s unique features, its current disguises for August 2023, and the rare prospect of encountering a Shiny Ditto.

Ditto has a way of capturing our imaginations, doesn’t it? Unlike other Pokémon that make their appearance known on your map, Ditto plays hard to get. It cloaks itself as other Pokémon, making it a little trickster to spot and catch. What’s not to love about a Pokémon that keeps you on your toes?

Many of you have been buzzing about which Pokémon Ditto is impersonating these days. Look no further. We’ve done our homework, and here are the Pokémon you’ll need to catch to potentially unmask a Ditto this month:

  • Diglett
  • Grimer
  • Snubbull
  • Corphish
  • Starly
  • Roggenrola
  • Tympole
  • Litleo

Remember, Ditto won’t show its true colors (or form, in this case) until after you’ve caught what you think is just an everyday Pokémon. Only then will it reveal itself.

Ah, the elusive Shiny Pokémon – everyone’s dream catch. But what about a Shiny Ditto? Is it even possible? Unfortunately, nabbing one depends on pure luck. There aren’t any known strategies to up your odds.

While you can encounter a Shiny form of a Pokémon from Ditto’s disguise list, keep in mind that Ditto won’t adopt that Shiny form. But if you catch a non-Shiny Pokémon that’s on Ditto’s list, who knows? You just might snag yourself a Shiny Ditto. Let’s talk statistics. Your chance of encountering a Ditto masquerading as another Pokémon stands at around 3%. If you’re aiming for a Shiny Ditto, brace yourselves: the odds are approximately 1 in 64. A challenging endeavor, indeed.

We’re all ears. Have you caught a Ditto or its shiny variant? Share your triumphs or tales of woe in the comments below. We’d love to hear from you.

There you have it, Trainers. Your comprehensive guide to catching Ditto in Pokémon GO for August 2023. Happy hunting, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. My wife and I both had somehow encountered and captured two different shiny dittos to which we waited until we were lucky friends and then traded the same dittos to each other. Creating shiny, lucky ditto, which I don’t even want to know what the odds of that is

  2. I’ve had the challenges for almost a year now. I do not believe it exists and any article talking about it is click-bait. They’ve all been almost word-for-word copies of one another. The same fee potential pokemon and no matter how many I’ve caught, it’s never a Ditto. My buddy is in the same boat. He even went Pay To Win with one of those belt clip auto catchers and even after hundreds of automatically caught pokemon. Not one ditto.

  3. I caught shiny ditto randomly a few months ago. It was a good real surprise to see ditto in my recent pokemon and even more shiny version of it. I use fast catching method so I didn’t know at first that I got myself that precious shiny

  4. I caught a shiny ditto while walking my dog one day and it was amazing I got it from a regular Pokémon not shiny and got the shiny ditto
