    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!

    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!
