Ditto is a unique Pokémon to chase in Pokémon Go. You will never find it in the wild in its standard form. Instead, he will be disguised as a random Pokémon in the world. These Pokémon disguises change, typically at the start of a season, so you can expect a host of new Ditto disguises for Season of Evil. Additionally, there is a chance for players to catch a Bright Ditto starting September 1st in their local areas.

How does the capture of a Ditto work?
Before catching a Ditto in a Pokéball, there's no way to tell that the Pokémon you're about to click will turn into one. The only clue you have is knowing about Ditto's disguises. You want to keep up to date with those as much as possible.
You will need to keep clicking on these Pokémon in the wild and trying to catch them. Eventually, when you catch it, you will receive this distinct animation after they enter a Pokéball.
If you see "Oh?" above your Pokéball, you'll go to a different screen and see the Pokémon you've caught transform into Ditto. The background also looks different from traditional Pokémon catches.
Outside of this short animation, after catching a Ditto, there is no way to tell where the Pokémon is in the world. You may have the option of catching one for a special research mission or event, but you'll need to know ahead of time that it's a reward. When you are told that Ditto is a reward for catching, then you have a standard Ditto encounter.
Make sure you keep up to date with the list we've provided to make sure you're on the hunt for Ditto. This list rotates, so expect to see it updated every so often with new Pokémon.
