Pokemon Sword and Shield: How to Find Dynamax Ditto
Ditto and other 'little' Pokemon are appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles for a limited time.
If you want to add Ditto to your Pokemon collection, our guide will show you how to find one to battle (and hopefully capture) in a Max Raid Battle.
First, check out the Pokemon Dens in the Wild Area that have a beam of light coming out of them.
When you interact with one of these Dens, look for the silhouette in the screenshot below. If you see this silhouette, you’ve found Dynamax Ditto!
If a Ditto Raid isn't currently available in your Wild Area, remember that you can cause new Max Raid Battles to appear by completing all of the Raids that are currently active.
You can also cause a Pokemon to appear in a Pokemon Den by tossing a Wishing Piece into it. Specifically, you’ll need to interact with a Pokemon Den that doesn’t have an active Raid to collect your Watts. Then, interact with the Pokemon Den again. The game will ask you if you want to use a Wishing Piece. If you say “Yes,” a Pokemon will appear in the Den for you to battle, and it may be Ditto!
Finally, you may be able to find Ditto in a Raid being hosted by another player. To do this, press “Y” on your controller to open the game’s Y-COMM menu. From there, look for Ditto’s silhouette on one of the stamps. If you’re fast, you may be able to join the trainer’s battle and take on Ditto for a chance to capture it (or just receive some fun rewards).
