POKEMON Go is crazy about Ditto in a crazy April Fool’s Day event.
The purple blob is part of a special event for a limited time, so don’t wait.
april fool’ 2-Oh?-22 runs until midnight, with plenty of Ditto-related quests and extras in tow.
As the creators of Niantic explain, “Professor Willow has some new special research for Trainers to help with.
“At least… we think he does. Is that really Professor Willow?
“Are you actually one of his trusted trainers? We can no longer say what Ditto is and what isn’t.”
Ditto is known for being quite elusive due to its unique ability to disguise itself as other creatures.
In fact, the only real movement is transformation, which allows him to copy the form and abilities of anyone he opposes.
Ditto is much more difficult to catch in Pokemon Go because it always fights in its disguise.
So you’ll only find one randomly if you caught the creature in its fake form and it decides to reveal itself afterwards.
How to catch Ditto in Pokemon Go
Well, in this latest event, now is your best chance to catch a Ditto as there will be more of them scattered around and we know exactly what creatures they are hiding as.
