There are a lot of different pocket monsters to capture in Pokemon GO but one of the most desired hasn’t been obtainable until now. Ditto, the cloning Pokemon, can now be caught out in the wild randomly just like any other one. However, there is a slight catch to this elusive monster. First reported by Serebii.net, instead of appearing in his blobby pink form, this critter actually takes the form of other Pokemon which can make it a pain to search for.
When you are out exploring, there is a chance that you will encounter a Ditto hiding as another Pokemon, however, you will not know it until you’ve captured it. This makes capturing a broad amount of Pokemon worthwhile, as it could very well be a Ditto hiding under that Pidgey guise. Once you’ve captured a Pokemon, you will either go through the menus like normal or a text box will pop with the word “Oh?” in it. If this shows up, then it means you have captured a Ditto.
As of right now there is no discernible region, terrain, or level that it seems to appear at. If you are hunting for one then we suggest capturing as many Pokemon (especially high-level ones) as possible. We will update as we receive more information, but it appears that we are one step closer to completing our Pokedex of the original 151 in Pokemon GO.
