Pokemon has a long history of containing joke or gimmick Pokemon. Essentially, new additions to the Pokedex that aren’t really meant to be taken seriously as a battle partner but instead are meant to be cute, funny, or just show off a new feature. In the case of Ditto, back in Gen 1 when it first debuted, it was one of two Pokemon (the other suspiciously being Mew) that could use the move Transform. If you’re here, you’re probably wondering where to find Ditto in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Here’s what you need to know.
Catching a Ditto in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
Ditto is a very strange Pokemon. For most of the Pokemon’s life over the generations, it’s been regulated to joke and gimmick status, just like it was in Gen 1. However, the addition of the Hidden Ability Imposter has turned Ditto into, well, still kind of a gimmick, but one that can at least function and be pretty powerful in the right hands. Imposter allows Ditto to transform as soon as it enters the battle and copies all of the stat boosts too. It’s quite handy!
Ditto is also beloved by all Pokemon, making it a popular breeding partner as it can mate with any Pokemon that can mate, and any gender. This limber blob is a great way to pass down positive IVs if you can find one with a good stat roll.
Anyway, if you’re looking to find Ditto in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, head on over to 218. Ditto is generally one of the rarer and harder to catch Pokemon in the game, so you might need to go at it for a while before you find one, but one will eventually turn up, it’s not ultra rare.
