Ditto is among the most desired monsters in Pokemon GO since encountering it requires intense grinding. The Copy Pokemon, Ditto, can imitate other monsters, making it extremely hard to spot the monster in the wild. It can not only imitate other monsters’ appearances but also their moves.
Although identifying a wild Ditto is hard, there are only a few monsters it can change into. The developers at Niantic have limited the wild spawns Ditto can copy to make it easier for Pokemon GO trainers to hunt for the beast. In addition to the Standard variant, lucky trainers can also encounter a Shiny Ditto. One also needs to note that the Ditto disguises change occasionally, and players must know all the disguises before attempting to catch a Ditto. That said, this guide lists all the Ditto Disguises for January 2023.
Updated on January 1, 2024: This Pokemon GO guide has been updated to include all the new Ditto Disguises for January 2024.
Every Ditto Disguise In Pokemon GO (January 2024)
Developers at Niantic change the Ditto disguises now and then. Currently, there are multiple monsters Ditto can copy for January 2024. Although there is no guarantee, lucky Pokemon GO trainers may also encounter a Shiny Ditto. Players have to encounter numerous Ditto to catch up with its Shiny odds. Here are all the possible picks.
One should be on the lookout for these spawns. If players get an “Oh?” prompt after catching it, the monster is a Ditto in disguise.
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.
