To all the Pokemon GO players out there, we have an update that you just don’t want to miss! Niantic Labs just released a brand new Pokemon in the Pokemon GO land and guess who made it home this time- Ditto!
Yes, it’s the same smartass Pokemon that can transform into any Pokemon it is battling (how cool is that!).
But there’s a catch, Ditto, doesn’t appear in its standard form. Rather, it appears as a common Pokemon like Pidgey, Rattata and Zubat. And upon being caught, it transforms into Ditto.
Players have been reporting their encounters and it seems that there is no definitive way of knowing that the Pokemon that you’ve encountered in a Ditto. So, your best bet at catching one is to play along till you have one in your Pokedex.
