Throughout your journey in Pokemon Sword and Shield, you will come across hundreds of different types of Pokemon. However, the mix of them is probably one of the most important, since it's an all-in-one character. Ditto has been a part of the series since the very beginning and returns in this latest release. Its usefulness in combat and breeding is highly sought after by trainers, but it can be difficult to catch. Here's where and how to find Ditto in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Where and how to find Metamorph
There's only one place to find Ditto in Sword and Shield: Lake Outrage in the Wilderness. Located in the northeast corner of the huge Wild Areas map, this island is isolated and can be ignored by most players. Luckily, Ditto spawns regardless of weather conditions, but even knowing where Ditto spawns may not be enough to catch it.
After all, it is an island. So you need to know how to cross water. Check out this guide and come back to it when you're ready, if you haven't reached that stage of the game yet. Once you get to the island, Ditto shouldn't be too rare. It spawns about 20% of the time a Pokemon spawns. To make it easier, Ditto will spawn in the Overworld, so you can avoid surprise encounters for now. Just walk around the area until you see one, but keep an eye out, it's a bit small.
Spot this small purple speck among the tall grass, head towards the encounter, then grab it using the usual methods. And that's how and where to find Ditto in Pokemon Sword and Shield. Once you have Ditto in your Pokedex, you'll probably want to start using it to breed all the other creatures you could possibly want.
