How To Catch A Ditto In Pokemon Go

Ditto isn’t just a shapeshifting Pokemon but it also has a ton of other uses, you can use Ditto for tons of Special Research tasks, apart from that finding Ditto can be really stressful because you will almost never find Ditto in its original form.

Ditto always takes another form and this has made a lot of trainers skip because they did not want to catch another Pokemon that they already have. To be honest there is a bit of a grind just to let you know, as you will be technically throwing a bunch of Pokeballs aways.

But be rest assured, that by reading this guide you will find a Ditto as soon as possible.

You have to understand that Ditto only reveals its true identity only after you have caught it.

Ditto Catching Tips

1. Radar

You can use the radar and look for the above mentioned Pokemon, once you have found the one you can keep trying to catch them over and over again until one of them transforms back to Ditto.

2. Lures and Incense

Lures and Incense have been known to increase the chances of getting a rare Pokemon and since Ditto is pretty rare you could bring it to you instead of you trying to find it.

3. Spawn Point

If you see that a friend has found Ditto at a particular spot, you can get one too provided if you reach there in a short amount of time. Ditto’s though rare aren’t like Shiny Pokemon, this means that you stand to catch a Ditto just as anyone else.

4. Lucky Egg

Lucky Eggs have been known to hatch Dittos, and even if you do not get a Ditto you can always make do with the extra XP.

Using Ditto in Battles

If you manage to catch a Ditto you can use it in battles but there is a catch, it will only transform into the original shape it was when you caught it and will have all the move sets too but with Ditto’s original CP. Ditto will only change once and not as many times as you like as shown in the tv show.
