Ditto in Pokémon GO

Ditto can now appear in Pokémon GO. In the wild, Ditto will appear as another species of Pokémon, but Transform back and reveal itself when it is caught.

When training at or challenging a Gym, Ditto will copy the appearance, types, and moves of the first Pokémon it sees, and it will stay that way through the remainder of that Gym battle.

To explain how Ditto works, Pokémon GO have released a video showing what happens when a Pokémon is caught that is actually a transformed Ditto.

Announcement

Professor Willow has finally discovered Ditto! Trainers all over the world have been reporting its appearance.

Ditto has been known to disguise itself as other Pokémon, so keep an eye out, some Pokémon may actually be Ditto, and when you capture them, there’s a chance that Ditto will reveal itself. If you do encounter a Pokémon that is Ditto in disguise, the Pokémon in that specific encounter will also reveal itself as Ditto for other Trainers.

Ditto is also a unique Pokémon when you interact with Gyms. When training or battling at a Gym, Ditto will copy the appearance, types, and moves of the first Pokémon it sees, and it will stay that way through the remainder of those Gym battles.
