Pokemon Go Players have discovered that Ditto disguises themselves as several new Pokemon species. Dito was one of the first big puzzles in Pokemon Go – a Pokemon species that lacks the game theorized by the players had to be unlocked. Players have tried hundreds of theories before Niantic confirmed that Ditto was simply out of the game until they added the Pokémon in late 2016. Since then, Ditto has disguised himself as a common Pokémon species and revealed its true form only after it was captured. Now Pokemon Go players have confirmed that the Pokemon can be caught under the guise of several new species.
At the moment, Ditto may occur as one of the following species:
- Remoraid [1
Dittos new panels are to replace Yanma, which has been replaced similar to earlier panels such as Pidgey or Rattata. There is indeed a practical reason for the new disguises – Ditto gets a new disguise when one of his old disguises gets a shiny twist in the game. Niantic assumed (rightly) that players not only want to capture a Shiny Pokemon so it will appear as a ditto, so they often swap disguises. Since Yanma has a Shiny Pokemon variant thanks to a recent Safari Zone event, Pokemon Go Ditto wanted to make some new surprises and avoid any frustration among players.
The new disguises are now all active, so players looking for a Ditto must keep their eyes peeled for one of the above Pokemon types. Although not nearly as rare as it was in its heyday, it is still a pleasant surprise to capture a Ditto. Pokemon Go is available on Android and iOS devices.
