Pokémon Go: Ditto Disguises and Shiny Chances (July 2022)

Introduced in Generation I, Ditto is probably one of the most iconic Pokémon. This purple blob disguises into any Pokémon or object using the move Transform and is thus called the Transform Pokémon on the Pokédex

While you almost always initially see this Pokémon in its purple blob state in a lot of Pokémon games, Pokémon Go makes it a little harder for you to know that you’re actually meeting a Ditto as the Pokémon doesn’t appear in its original state in the wild.

Instead, Ditto takes the form of other Pokémon and will only reveal itself after being caught.

If you’re trying to complete the ever-expanding Pokédex, you should definitely catch Ditto. But as you won’t see this Pokémon as it is in the wild, which Pokémon should you keep an eye on?

Ditto Shiny Chances 

There is a chance for you to catch a shiny Ditto in Pokémon GO. While the non-shiny Ditto looks like a purple blob, you’ll know you’ve caught a shiny one when, after catching any of the Pokémon in the previous list, the Pokémon transforms into a blue blob instead. 

It is important to note, however, that a non-shiny purple Ditto can fool you and disguise itself as a shiny Pokémon and the shiny blue Ditto can conceal itself as a non-shiny one. 

This means that if you encounter a shiny Ekans in the wild, for example, there’s a chance that a non-shiny Ditto is only playing with your eyes.  

If you catch a non-shiny Pokémon that then turns out to be a blue Ditto, then consider it your lucky day!
