Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Breeding With Ditto (Complete Guide)

Here is how you can breed your Pokemon using a Ditto in Pokemon SV.

When it comes to Breeding Pokemon, Ditto has been the best pick in the past games, and Scarlet & Violet are no exception to this. When you are breeding Pokemon normally you have to make sure they are of the same egg group, and you also need to make sure one is a male while the other is a female. But when it comes to Ditto, these rules stop applying. So in this guide let us quickly check how to breed Pokemon with the help of a Ditto in Scarlet and Violet.


How to Breed with a Ditto in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

You can use a Ditto to Breed with most Pokemon in this game by using the Picnic feature. This game has changed how you breed Pokemon so there are no more daycare centers for you to use. But while the process is a whole lot easier, it can be a bit tedious.

  1. Start by catching a Ditto. You can find one in either Area Two or Three of the West Province or by getting one from a Tera Raid battle. The stronger the Ditto the better Pokemon you will get after breeding.
  2. Next, make sure you have only two Pokemon in your Party. A Ditto and the Pokemon that you want to breed.
  3. Now, go to any open area and set up a picnic.
  4. Finally, all you have to do now is wait. And you have to do this in real-time. As your Pokemon play around, you will find eggs inside your basket. This process can take a lot of time so to speed up the process you can use sandwiches that boost your egg power.

After you are happy with the eggs you get, simply add them to your party and run around. Or ride anywhere in Paldea on your Koraidon or Miraidon. After a time it will hatch your eggs and you will get the base form of the Pokemon you bred with Ditto.


Do remember while most Pokemon can be bred with a Ditto, you cannot breed Legendary and Paradox Pokemon in this game. So even having a Ditto won’t help you out. But you can use it to breed genderless Pokemon like Cryogonal, Rotom, Sinistea, Tandemous, and more.

That covers this guide on how to Breed with a Ditto in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. Since you like playing this game I would suggest you also check out our other Scarlet & Violet guides.
