Where to Find Ditto in Pokémon Sword and Shield


Ditto has long been a popular Pokémon, and this is no different in Sword and Shield. In this guide, we will show you where to find the transforming Pokémon.

Where to Find Ditto in Pokémon Sword and Shield

You can find Ditto at the Lake of Outrage, located on the map just between Route 5 and Route 6. Unfortunately, you can’t just head for the Lake of Outrage, as it is cut off by a river. You will need to finish the sixth Gym Challenge and get a bike that can cross water before you can go there.

The good news is that while Ditto is not exactly a common spawn, it can be found on the overworld map, and as a random encounter in the grass in this area. If you see exclamation points coming from the grass, you should investigate, because it might just be the Ditto you are looking for.

Another important thing to remember is that the weather impacts which Pokemon will spawn, but Ditto will, thankfully, spawn in any weather condition. Just head for the Lake of Outrage when you can access it, then run around the area looking for spawns. If you can’t find a Ditto, leave the area and come back to reset the spawns, and try again.
