September 1, 2021

With the start of a new month, a lot is about to change in Pokemon GO.

There are new spawns, special research tasks, brand new (and returning events) and so much more – all spurned on by the brand new season, the Season of Mischief.

One of the other major changes in September is the fact that Ditto is the featured Research Breakthrough Pokemon, as well as having some new disguises in the wild.

Here are all of the Ditto disguise in Pokemon GO for September 2021, as well as all of the ways you can try and get yourself a shiny one.

When Will Shiny Ditto Be Available

Ditto was first made available in Pokemon GO earlier this year as part of February’s Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto event. Unfortunately, players had to complete some special research to earn an encounter with the Pokemon.

September 1 marks the first day that players will be able to encounter a shiny Ditto in the wild in the game.

How to Get Shiny Ditto

Players will have three different methods of encountering and catching a shiny Ditto in September.

The first method is to simply complete the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto Research if, like myself, you’ve not done that yet.

Secondly, Ditto will be available as September’s featured Research Breakthrough Pokemon. Provided you time things correctly, you can earn four or five encounters with Ditto through this method.

To do so, you will need to earn 28 stamps through the course of September, one each day. These can be earned by completing a Research Task that can be obtained from a Pokestop or once a day, automatically from Niantic.

The final method is arguably the trickiest and involves the most luck. You can hunt down Ditto that are disguised as other Pokemon throughout the game. Unfortunately, they aren’t particularly common to encounter in this fashion.

The Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto is the only way to guarantee yourself a shiny Ditto, however, you’ll give yourself the best opportunity to catch one by following the other steps.

What Are the September Ditto Disguises in Pokemon GO

Here is the full list of September’s Ditto disguises:

  • Drowzee
  • Dwebble
  • Foongus
  • Gastly
  • Gulpin
  • Numel

By clicking as many of these as possible, you’ll give yourself the best shot at a Shiny Ditto.
