As rare as it might seem, the elusive shape shifter Ditto is surprisingly common- there can be one around you even now! But finding one can lead to some significant frustration for most trainers. It can’t be hatched from eggs, never showed up as a raid reward and isn’t even found as a field research quest award. And because it disguises itself as other Pokemons, you cannot identify it on the map- even if there’s one lurking right in front of you. There are number of field research tasks that require catching a Ditto: the quest for Mew includes it too. So how to catch one?

Where Can You Find Ditto?
Till date there are no Ditto nests or fixed spawn points; but fortunately, the Pokemons it disguises itself into do. You might want to wander into areas like PokeStops, Gyms, malls, etc. where multiple Pokemons spawn at once as these are perfect for Ditto. Still, even with this data, you can’t be sure that Ditto only spawns in dense areas. Ultimately, it boils down to your luck, just like with the shinies but with better odds.
Ditto Disguises in Pokemon Go In February 2021
Since you cannot see Ditto in the map, knowing the Pokemons in which it can transform is your best bet. Catch as many of these as you can, until you finally get one. For this, you need not worry, as these Pokemons are very common, and are found in abundance in the wild. Here’s a list of Ditto disguises in Pokemon Go in February 2021:
Go around catching these Pokemons. You can use a lucky egg to increase your XP for each catch. You wouldn’t know if the Pokemon you caught is a Ditto until you obtain it and encounter an “Oh?” message, and the captured Pokemon transforms into a Ditto.
Also, if some player finds a Ditto, and if you manage to get to that spot, you can get one for yourself too. But make sure you hurry- they don’t stay at the same location for long. So be ware of that.
NOTE: If a Pokemon is released in it’s shiny form, it can no longer be available as a disguised Ditto. So keep an eye on that!

Can You Get Ditto With Incense?
Yes, if you use incense, you will encounter various common Pokemons- perfect disguises for Ditto. So, instead of focusing on rarities, make sure to catch only the ones mentioned in the list, so as to increase your chance of getting one and not wasting your balls. The same goes with lure modules, as Ditto can be encountered while using incense.
Does Special Events Affect Ditto Spawn In Pokemon Go?
Special events such as Dragon Week or Community Day might negatively affect Ditto spawns when one of it’s disguise Pokemon is released as a shiny. When this happens, Ditto cannot disguise as that particular Pokemon, thus, reducing it’s spawn rate. On the positive side of things though, when a Pokemon with a potential Ditto disguise get’s featured in spotlight hours, Ditto spawn rates drastically improves. So you might want to keep an eye on these events.

Can You Use Ditto In PvP Battles?
Ditto cannot be used in PvP battles- i.e. in trainer battles, battle with friends or in the Go Battle league. But, it can be used in the Gym battles. Ditto has one main move- transform, and it’s charged move is struggle. It transforms into the first Pokemon it sees, and stays in that form throughout the battle.
Ditto can use the same moves as it’s opponent, but what differs is it’s CP and stats. So, if you have a Ditto of low CP, you should consider replacing it with some other Pokemon. Also, you should note that Ditto takes some time to transform, which can leave you vulnerable to attacks and take your valuable time away from the battle.
