Pokémon Go finally releases Ditto for catching... with a twist

The elusive and mysterious Pokémon Ditto has finally revealed its true form to trainers in Pokémon Go.

Niantic revealed Wednesday that the final non-legendary Pokémon from the original Kanto Pokédex is now available for capture in the hit mobile game. Professor Willow, the latest guide in the Pokémon universe, has spotted the new addition to the wild, but warns trainers Ditto may not reveal its true form in the wild.

Known as the transforming Pokémon, Ditto will take on the form of other Pokémon, which should prompt trainers to catch everything in the hopes it’s the purple creature in disguise. If the captured Pokémon is indeed the mysterious Ditto, it will transform and reveal itself immediately. See how that all looks in the video above.

In battle, Ditto will copy the appearance, types, and moves of the first Pokémon it sees, and it will stay that way through the remainder of the those Gym battles.
