Ditto has been officially released into the wild in Pokemon Go, with the first reported sighting coming from Redditor Kvothealar. What steps do you need to take to find the elusive Pokemon? Turns out, it’s a lot easier than you might think.
Here’s what you need to know.
Ditto is not difficult to catch in Pokemon Go. All you need is a little luck. Pokemon Go trainers are reporting finding Ditto everywhere right now. He’s been released in countries all over the world. And he’s also appearing in many different species too. (See the full list of species that reportedly transform into Ditto here.)
If you want to find Ditto, don’t be picky about who you’re trying to capture. Ditto’s been reported frequently in low-level Pidgey and Rattata, along with other species. He mostly appears in 2 km species, including Zubat and Magikarp. There’s no outward indication in the wild that a species is actually a Ditto. You won’t know until you capture him. Then you’ll see an “Oh?” animation, like you do for an egg that’s hatching, and then a transformation scene where the species turns into Ditto.
So, instead of being more careful about who you’re catching, try to catch any Pokemon species that you come across, especially if it’s a lower-level species. He seems to be more plentiful in Rattata, Pidgey, and Zubat. But The Silph Road has reported that he can likely transform from other species too.
So that’s really all there is to it. He doesn’t appear to be any more difficult to catch than any other Pokemon. But he’s hiding in plain sight. So if you come across a Rattata or a Pidgey, don’t delay. Try to catch whichever species you find, and you’ll likely end up with a Ditto before you know it. And by the way: you can capture more than one Ditto, battle with him in a gym, and make him your Buddy.
