Pokemon Go Ditto List - How To Catch Ditto in Pokemon Go in 2019

Here's how to catch Ditto, the tricky mimic Pokemon, in Pokemon Go . This is the complete guide to Ditto in Pokemon Go.

Ditto can be a tricky pokemon to track down in Pokemon GO. It only hides out as other pokemon, meaning you'll never just come across a Ditto while out exploring. Ditto is usually included in Pokemon GO Research Tasks each month though, so it pays to know where to look. In this Pokemon GO Ditto Guide, we'll list all of the pokemon that can turn into Ditto in Pokemon GO. We'll give some advice on how to improve your odds of getting a Ditto in Pokemon GO, and take a look at why you'd ever want to catch one anyway.

Don't forget to check out our extensive Pokémon GO guide for more tips, hints, and walkthroughs!

How to Get Ditto in Pokemon Go

Catching a Ditto is pretty simple once you know where to look. You see, Ditto doesn't appear outright in the wild. Instead, you must catch a Pokémon that Ditto is imitating – and it'll only reveal itself once you've made the catch. There are multiple pokemon that can be a Ditto in disguise, which we'll cover later on in this guide.

Where to Find Ditto in Pokemon Go 2019 - Which Pokemon Can be Ditto?

Niantic purposefully restricts which pokemon can turn into Ditto in Pokemon GO. Generally, they are more common, weaker pokemon, to avoid any situations where a pokemon you really wanted to catch ends up being a Ditto, imagine that. You'll find the Pokemon GO Ditto List below:

  • Pidgey
  • Rattata
  • Mankey
  • Zubat
  • Hoothoot
  • Sentret
  • Yanma
  • Zigzagoon
  • Taillow
  • Gulpin
  • Whismur
  • Remoraid

If you have yourself a decent supply of PokéBalls, you shouldn't have a problem landing a Ditto after a few walks through the neighbourhood. Those Pidgeys are useful for gaining experience, so get catching!

Ditto's Move List in Pokemon GO

Like Ditto in the mainline Pokémon games, Pokémon GO's Ditto is primarily capable of transforming into its opponent when it engages in a face-off at a Gym. By doing so, Ditto acquires the same moves and CP (combat power) level as its rival – but if Ditto's base CP is actually lower than the Pokémon it imitates, don't expect a one-on-one match-up. Ditto also knows "Struggle," a Normal-type move that damages the opposing Pokémon.

Ditto is primarily used as breeding fodder in mainline Pokémon games, but since Pokémon can't be bred in the traditional way in Pokémon GO, it's more of a curiosity for now. Still, it's nice to have that missing gap in Pokémon GO's PokéDex finally filled out.

Is Ditto Rare in Pokemon GO - Ditto Odds

While the exact drop rates for encountering a Ditto out in the wild are still unknown, it's reasonable to sy that it is a pretty common occurrence. Ditto has actually gotten less rare the longer Pokemon GO has been out, with the current Mew questline actually featuring a Ditto Research Task.

Best Ways to Get a Ditto in Pokemon GO

Finding a Ditto in Pokemon GO can be a bit of a crap-shoot. A lot of luck is involved, but the thing to keep in mind is that once someone in your area has found a pokemon that is secretly a Ditto, that pokemon will turn into a Ditto as well. It's a great idea then, to get involved in any Pokemon GO Facebook or Discord groups that are operating in your area. This will allow you to check if any Ditto have been discovered nearby, and you can hightail it to that location to get involved.

Now that you have Ditto on your side, why not learn how to evolve Eevee into Jolteon, Flareon, or Vaporeon? Or how to earn experience quickly and level up fast.

We've also got info on Field Research tasks in our Pokemon Go Research Guide. There's also a look at how Gifts work in Pokemon GO in our Pokemon GO Gifts Guide. We'll be adding plenty more as the game continues to progress, so check back regularly for more details.
