Niantic has not given an official statement about Ditto’s release in-game, but There have been posts of Ditto’s capture circulating in social media as early as 7:00AM, Manila time.

Twitter users @mumbleB@ValorClubNJ,@KevinKlix have shared screenshots of them capturing Ditto using the hashtag #Ditto.

Twitter user @WhatUpMC who plays from Quebec, Canada has posted 2 videos of Pokémon (Pidgey and Rattata specifically) turning into Dittos after being captured.

 

How do you find out if you’ve captured a Ditto? Instead of the usual ‘Gotcha!’, you’ll get a notification saying ‘Oh?’ hinting that you’ve caught a Ditto!

Try playing the videos again to see it for yourself.

In case you’re not familiar with Ditto, he is a shapeshifting Pokémon who has a light magenta blobbish appearance. It is capable of transforming into an exact replica of any physical object, even to any Pokemon. In the Pokédex, Ditto is tagged as Pokémon #132, just in between Gyarados (#131) and Eevee (#133).

How to Capture Ditto

As shown in Twitter video above, a Pidgey or Rattata can turn into a Ditto. This means that the best way to get one is to capture all the Pidgeys and Rattatas you encounter in hopes that it will turn into a Ditto.

 

So far, we have yet to receive any news of Dittos appearing locally (Philippines). Will you be the first one to capture a Ditto in the Philippines? Feel free to leave a comment and share a link (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) to your screenshot or video of your successful Ditto conquest.

 

Happy hunting, everyone!
