How to catch Ditto in Pokémon Go

Ditto isn’t like most other pokémon. It only knows two moves – Transform and Struggle. Transform lets it morph into other pokémon, handing you an entirely new move-set to play with.

In the wild, you’ll only know you’ve actually caught Ditto when you’ve trapped it inside a poké ball, after which it will reveal its true self. But don’t go off catching as many pokémon as you can in the hope of landing a one.

Niantic has restricted the number of pokémon that Ditto can take the form of. Find one of them in the wild, and you have a chance – a slim chance, but a chance – of bagging one.

So, which pokémon do you need to go after? The pocket monsters that Ditto hides as change every now and then to keep you on your toes. We’ve compiled a list of all the current pokémon that might be a Ditto in disguise.
