So you wanna catch a Ditto? unfortunately, that’s no easy task because ditto is a bit of a wild card in Pokemon go with the little fella constantly being disguised. But it’s not an impossible task and the good news is that this guide on how to catch ditto will help you on your journey to catching ditto.
For the most part, you’ll probably be after ditto for some of the Pokemon go special missions that require players to catch it. As it then leads to special catches like Mew and Celebi.
The little slimy bugger can also be pretty useful for gym battles as if it has a high CP and stats. But, we’ll talk more about that later on.
Catching Ditto In Pokemon Go
Catching a Ditto is just a super random process and you’ll quickly find yourself becoming frustrated at the task.
Ditto can shape-shift and take on the guise of a variety of other pokemon in the wild which changes semi-regularly. But this tends to usually be just common creatures such as Weedle, Paras, Venonat, etc.
List Of Ditto Disguises
These are the updated list of Ditto Disguising as other pokemon.
Sadly there’s no clear and defined way to tell when a Pokemon is actually secretly ditto. A cheeky tip to remember is that ditto is generally harder to catch than the Pokemon it hides as.
If you find yourself trying to catch something like a Venonat but for some reason, it keeps avoiding your capture despite its CP is low, then it’s likely that you’re actually up against a Ditto.
In these instances, you should try using a berry on it and then switching to an ultra ball to try and catch it. This isn’t a for sure guarantee that you’ll catch it but you’ll definitely have a better chance at finally catching a Ditto if you follow these tips.
The important thing to remember is that those special research missions will always be around. So don’t stress yourself too much about trying to get ditto.
Battling With Ditto
Now when it comes to gym battles as we said earlier, ditto is a bit of a wild card. Whether you’re attacking or defending ditto will take on the form of the opposing Pokemon and just completely absorb all its Movesets. Unfortunately, it’s CP, and stats don’t change whatsoever.
If you’ve got yourself a high CP Ditto, then you might find yourself decently matched against your foe. The only thing to bear in mind is that the first Pokemon it takes the form of, it will stay like that for the rest of the gym battle.
That basically wraps up our guide offering you some of the tips to help you catch ditto, good luck, and try not to let the little guy get to you. We’ve all been fooled by it at least once… or twice… alright maybe more.
