Pokemon GO players can catch a Ditto and Shiny Ditto in the wild, but doing so is an extremely hard ordeal. Ditto is known for its powerful imitation ability; the monster can copy others’ appearances along with the attacks. The Normal-type Pokemon is among the most sought-after beasts due to its unique ability.
While it is extremely hard to pinpoint Ditto in the wild, a few things can make it easier. Pokemon GO developers have limited the number of monsters Ditto can copy. Players can take advantage of the limitations and only hunt for the eligible Pokemon, but one will only know if it is a Ditto after defeating the monster. It is also important to note that Niantic occasionally changes the Ditto disguises lineup, so staying updated helps. That said, this guide explores all the Pokemon that Ditto can disguise as in February 2024.
Updated on February 2, 2024: This Pokemon GO guide has been updated to include all the new Ditto Disguises for February 2024.

Pokemon GO: How To Increase The Odds Of Catching Ditto
While catching a Ditto is already a 1 in 50 chance, players can increase their odds by encountering as many pocket monsters as possible. The best way to do this is to use Pokemon GO Lure Modules or an Incense in a PokeStop or Gym. These items increase the number of Pokemon that appear on the world map, meaning more encounters and chances to find a Ditto.
One can also use the in-game item Incense and the Weather Boost function. Since its spawn rate gets boosted in partly cloudy weather, attach a Lure Module to a Pokemon GO PokeStop or Gym with such weather condition, activate an Incense, and walk around that area.
It’s also worth utilizing the Daily Adventure Incense, an item granted once daily that is active for 15 minutes and attracts Pokemon that aren’t normally found in the wild. As long as the Pokemon GO player keeps moving, Pokemon will continue to spawn for 15 minutes, occasionally leading to some rare catches.
After a test run via an April Fools’ joke on Google Maps, Pokemon GO was released to the public in the summer of 2016. The AR mobile app saw unparalleled success and continues to be one of the largest mobile games in the world, pulling in billions for developer Niantic.
