Ditto Pokemon GO update: Big surprise waiting for fans as Niantic expands nearby feature

Ditto has finally joined the other original Pokemon in the wild and can be caught by those who can track it down.

From what fans are reporting, normal low-level Pokemon have been spawning into Ditto just before getting caught, a great new tactic on Niantic’s part.

By making Ditto Pokemon GO available via common Pocket Monster catches, it’ll provide the perfect spur for those who haven’t gone out and caught a Rattata in a while.

Ditto appears to boast a high CP and is available in every region. This will come as a relief as some Pokemon have been made region-exclusive.

Fans were tipped off to the inclusion of Ditto last month, after dataminers discovered the move transform had been added to the popular mobile game.

It follows the Pokemon Go update that Niantic are set to rollout the revamped nearby feature to new areas.

“After reviewing your feedback, we have made some changes to the Nearby feature we were originally testing in San Francisco, California,” a statement from the development team explains.

“We have changed the feature to only show the Nearby feature if a PokeStop is close to your location. In addition, we have also made changes to the way Sightings now works.

“We will be expanding the ability for Trainers to test this updated version of the features and provide us with feedback. 

“Your feedback submitted to all of our official social media accounts and posted in other channels is important to us. We will continue to review community feedback and make changes if necessary.

“Our first six months has been nothing short of exciting and your continued support has been inspiring. We have a lot of content, features, and functionality that we will be implementing over the coming months and years. 

“Our goal is to to always improve on existing features where we can while also releasing exciting new content and functionality.”

Starting today, Trainers in the following areas will now be able to use the new Nearby and Sightings functionality:

  • United States of America: All states west of the Mississippi River (except Hawaii and Alaska)
  • Canada: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the western half of Ontario.
  • Australia: All states and territories
