How to Find Dittos
Dittos are quite tough to find but there are a couple of things you can do to help during the hunt.
Lock on - By pressing in you can see the name and level of a Pokémon above them. If it’s a ditto it’ll say Ditto above its head, not the name of the Pokémon it’s disguised as!
Odd behaviour - if you spot a Pokémon that would typically be quite hostile or skittish acting suspiciously neutral, it might be a Ditto!
Tera Raids - you can find Dittos in tera raids! Before you head into the raid, you’ll be able to see that its Ditto, then it’ll turn into your Pokémon when you go into battle it.
Battling Wild Pokémon - Sometimes the best way to find Dittos is to just find them organically whilst you’re out and about (sorry!).
