Ditto, the Transform Pokemon of the first generation, can be difficult to catch in Pokemon GO. That’s especially for those who don’t know you can’t catch the elusive creature through normal means. So, here’s everything you need to know on how to catch Ditto in Pokemon GO.

Ditto Pokemon GO – How To Catch

Ditto’s ability – Transform – allows the adorable purple blob to take on the form of another Pokemon. In Pokemon GO, that ability has been replicated in not just being Ditto’s only move, but also in that it can only be encountered on the map disguised as another Pokemon. As soon as you catch one of these disguised Pokemon, it will immediately transform back into before taking you to its stats screen.

This range of Ditto disguises changes each month, meaning you’ll need to keep updated if you want to catch more than one overtime or if your hunt runs between the end and start of different months.

From Leekduck, we now have a current list of Ditto Pokemon GO disguises for October 2022:

  • Ekans
  • Gastly
  • Spinarak
  • Natu
  • Surskit
  • Numel
  • Bidoof
  • Finneon
  • Lillipup
  • Dwebble
  • Swirlix

Ditto can be easier to catch with typically lower CP than their disguised counterparts, but there’s no other possible distinction on how to tell whether one of the above Pokemon is one in disguise until after you catch it. It’s a numbers game that’s all down to luck, so just keep catching any of the Ditto disguises you’ve managed to catch one.

Ditto Pokemon GO – Can I Catch A Shiny Ditto?

Yes, Shiny Ditto is available to catch in Pokemon GO as well. However, outside of a Pokemon GO Community Day, it is a very rare find as is every other Shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO. However, if you increase your spawns by using Incenses and Lure Modules at PokeStops, you might just generate enough to encounter your own Shiny Ditto.
