Which Pokemon Go species turn into Ditto? (Reddit/Kvothealar)

Ditto is in the wild in Pokemon Go! As Pokemon Go trainers celebrate, many have still not found Ditto. When you see Ditto in the wild, he appears to look just like a regular Pokemon. So far, there have been no indications that he’s “derpy” looking in any way. So the only way to guess who might secretly be a Ditto is to figure out which Pokemon are turning into Ditto the most.
