Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Ditto Location

Ditto is an important Pokémon for breeders and those trying to complete their Pokédex. Today I’m going to tell you where to find them in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. It takes some patience to get to it, as you won’t be able to catch one until after the Pokémon League Challenge.

The reason Ditto is so unique is because it can breed with any Pokémon. If you’re into breeding perfect Pokémon for competitive battling, then Ditto comes in handy for getting the ideal natures and IVs on Pokémon before you train them, as well as getting more of the one-time gift Pokémon.

Upgrading to the National Dex

First off you have to make sur e you’ve completed the Sinnoh Pokedex and nabbed yourself the National Dex upgrade. You can do this with one version of the game, as you only have to encounter each Pokémon once. So long as you’ve seen every Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokedex, then you should be golden.

After you’ve upgraded to the National Dex, you’ll be able to catch all Pokémon up to Gen 4 as well of a bunch of new Legendaries.

Where to Catch Ditto in Pokémon BDSP

After you’ve obtained the National Dex, head to route 218 and use the PokéRadar while the National Dex is active. Certain patches of grass will shake when you activate the PokéRadar, and this is where ditto will appear. It has a 20% chance of spawning, so it shouldn’t take you very long to find it at all.


You can also use the PokéRadar to ‘Chain’, which will increase your odds of a shiny encounter.

Ditto can also be found in the Grand Undergound, as it’s located in the Stargleam Cavern and Dazzling Cave chambers after you’ve beaten the Elite 4.

DItto and Shiny Ditto!
