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 - What Pokemon Can be Ditto - Pokemon GO Ditto List

Ditto can be found by catching relatively easy to find Pokémon from both Gen 1,2 and 3 in Pokemon Go, so there shouldn’t be any cases of Ditto showing up when you find something rare that you want to keep. Pokémon that could possibly be Ditto are as follows:

  • Pidgey
  • Rattata
  • Magikarp
  • Zubat
  • Hoothoot
  • Sentret
  • Yanma
  • Zigzagoon
  • Taillow
  • Gulpin
  • Whismur

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

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 occurence. Ditto has actually gotten less rare the longer Pokemon GO has been out, with the current Mew questline actually featuring a Ditto Research Task.

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.
