Pokemon GO has lost its charm over the last couple of months, but Niantic and Nintendo are finally back with an update that will surely compel players to pop back on the game.
There have been strong rumors recently that 100 new second generation Pokemon will soon be added to the game among other things. But what we know for sure is that a new Pokemon has already been added to the game, which might prove to be your hardest catch till now.
Ditto has been added to the game in the latest update. He is the last non-legendary Pokémon from the original 151 to make an appearance on the game. Ditto is an amorphous blob, with a special “mimic” power, which allows it to transform into any other Pokemon.
But catching a Ditto won’t be easy because you can’t see it on the map. It will be disguised as any other Pokemon, until you catch it. So it’s about time you stop ignoring all those Pidgey and Ratatta because they might actually be a Ditto in disguise.
Ditto will be able to mimic the first Pokemon he faces in a Pokemon Gym; copying the appearance, moves and type. Pokemon GO is also offering double XP and stardust for the next week as a “thank you” gesture for all its players.
