Ditto is once again posing a challenge to Pokémon Go users in the form of an old special research task. The activity in issue is a component of the 2018-added A Mythical Discovery quest, which must be finished in order to capture the legendary Pokémon Mew.
Three research tasks are presented in the quest’s fifth step, one of which calls for players to catch a Ditto. However, it is more difficult than it seems to capture Ditto. Ditto may impersonate other Pokémon, making it challenging for players to recognize it. Trainers face a tremendous obstacle because they can only be certain it is Ditto after catching the masked Pokémon.
Finding a Ditto has never been easy, especially when it is required for specific research activities. Unless a rare event increases the chance of running across a Ditto, it usually takes players years to find one. Due to the rarity of such occurrences, players have difficulty completing this particular assignment.
Players have complained about the difficulties in locating Dittos on places like Reddit. Other specialized research activities that call for the collection of elusive Pokémon like Cubone, Galpin, Kecleon, and Slugma have also prompted complaints.
Although finding a trainer for Ditto can be difficult, there are ways to improve your chances. It can be useful to be aware of the Pokémon that Ditto disguises itself each month. To date, Ditto has the ability to transform into the characters Corphish, Diglett, Grimer, Litleo, Roggenrola, Snubbull, Starly, and Tympole. These masks, however, will evolve as the months go on.
The difficulty of this difficult special research mission should be made easier for Pokémon Go users by improving communication regarding Ditto’s disguises.
