The Pokémon Company is celebrating April’s Fools Day 2022 in Pokémon GO, and Ditto will be the star of the 2-Oh?-22 event, as given away by the title.

Not only will Ditto be disguised as new Pokémon during the event, the first rotation of disguises since September 2021, but players will also be able to encounter Ditto from an event-exclusive Research Task and Special Research Story.

Ditto Research for April Fool’s Day in Pokémon GO

For the first time in Pokémon GO, Ditto will actually appear as an encounter in its own right in this April Fool’s Day event, not just disguised as another wild Pokémon. You’ll be able to earn Ditto encounters and Ditto candy by completing the Special Research, but why is Professor Willow acting so strange…?

Can Ditto be shiny in Pokémon GO?

Yes! Ditto has been available in its shiny form for some time in Pokémon GO, and you may encounter its shiny variant in your Research rewards encounters. While shiny Ditto can also appear in the wild, it’s a little more complex than with other Pokémon. For more, read this separate article about catching shiny Ditto in Pokémon GO.
