How to Get Ditto – Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
There are many Pokemon that are post-game in BDSP. This means you won’t encounter them on routes or in the wild during the normal course of events. You have to finish the game to get your hands on them. Ditto falls into this category.
When you have beat the Elite Four, you need to unlock the National Pokedex. This involves seeing all 150 Pokemon in the game. When you do this, you will also unlock the Poke Radar. You can read our guide on how to unlock the National Pokedex here. We also have an excellent guide on the Poke Radar you can view.
Once you have done this and visited Professor Rowan in Sandgem Town, then Professor Oak at Ramana’s park, you can set out. Travel to Jublife City, taking the eastern gate to Route 218. As you leave, there is some grass south of the exit. Activate the Poke Radar and the grass will move. This area has between a 10% and 20% spawn rate for Ditto.
There are actually two Ditto locations. The Grand Underground Crystal Caves area will contain Dittos. However, the method above is easier to access and has a higher spawn rate.
