Pokémon GO Ditto: How To Catch And Everything You Need To Know

Ditto is not a straight forward species to catch in Pokémon GO.

Ditto is notorious for being one of the most challenging species to come across in Pokemon GO.

The Normal-type Pokemon that was included in the first generation of the hugely successful franchise has tended to cause trainers a lot of headaches in their objective to grab what is described in its Pokedex entry as a Transform Pokemon.

It is extremely rare to find in the wild and you will have to be remarkably fortunate to come across one. Via Future Game Releases, there is just a 3% chance of finding a Ditto.

As a result, trainers have been left scratching their heads wondering what they need to do, or what they need to look out for, to catch Ditto.

Well, we’ve been doing some in-game research and we have come up with the following methods below.

How To Catch Ditto

Ditto in Pokemon GO.

Ditto cannot be caught in its original form and requires a stroke of luck to get your hands on one. As mentioned above, Ditto can transform and disguise itself as several Pokemon. But unfortunately, there is no telling from the naked eye where Ditto will be hiding.

It is important in your hunt for Ditto that you are aware of what it is disguised as, drastically upping your chances of getting hold of one. 

As of 27th September 2021, Ditto can be found concealed as the following Pokemon: 

  • Gastly
  • Drowzee
  • Remoraid
  • Teddirusa
  • Gulpin
  • Numel
  • Stunky
  • Dwebble
  • Foongus

Can Ditto be Shiny?

The great news is that yes, Ditto can be caught in a Shiny variant. At the time of writing, only four disguised Pokemon can transform into a Shiny Ditto, which will appear in a sky form rather than its traditional baby pink shade.
