How To Catch A Ditto In Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go Ditto is an elusive transforming blob that has driven many players up the wall while trying to find one. That's because in Pokemon GO, Ditto disguises itself as other beasties in the wild. Either you want one and can’t find them, as is the case for plenty of special research tasks, or the pesky pink blob takes the place of the Bidoof you were trying to capture, and you’re left with a Pokemon you didn’t ask for.

But, for those of you who are looking for a heap of pink slime, we’ve got you covered. Here’s everything you need to know about how to catch a Ditto in Pokemon Go, and all the possible Pokemon Go Ditto disguises.

The trouble with Ditto is, of course, the fact that it takes the form of other Pokemon. This makes it tough as you might not know where to turn to grab a Ditto, looking at the mass of beasties in front of you on your screen. Plus, the blob can’t be hatched from an egg, meaning you’ll need to bag it out in the wild. But, if you’ve got some intuition you might know where to turn first.

Thankfully there’s a shortlist of Pokemon Go Ditto disguises, so you'll know which Pokemon to hunt for in the chance it turns into a Ditto.

Ditto can't be disguised as any Gen 1 Pokemon in Pokemon Go at the moment, instead starting with some Gen 2 critters: Hoothoot, Spinarak, Hoppip and Remoraid. From Gen 3, Ditto can be a secret Whismur, Gulpin, or Numel, and from Gen 4 it can only be a Bidoof, which makes things easy for you Bidoof collectors. As for its Pokemon subjects in Generation 5, there are only two - Purrloin and Foongus. Consider these Pokemon your ‘target Pokemon’ - they’re the ones you’re looking for.

The best suggestion we can offer to weed out the Dittos from the targets is to go nuts catching, keep an eye on your nearby list and lay down some lures, as they can be used to rope the blobby beasts in.

Practically, there’s not much advice that can be offered from there, but that list of Pokemon will be crucial to finding Dittos in the wild - as at least you know which Pokemon won’t yield one. Good luck out there, and happy hunting!
