Pokemon GO players still have tons of things to do in-game, from finding Pokemon that spawn in the wild to battling and defending gyms. 

Catching a Ditto

But perhaps what's taking most of your time is fulfilling the Special Field Research tasks that allow you to get rare Pokemon such as Mew--that is if you're not stuck with some of the tasks, including catching a Ditto.

According to GameRant, Ditto is a Generation 1 Pokemon, which means it's among the original monsters in the franchise and was introduced in Pokemon GO in November 2016.

A Ditto can be quite hard to catch, especially since it spawns quite rarely, and it takes the form of other Pokemon such as a Magikarp or a Hoothoot, and you'll never really know you've caught a Ditto unless you've successfully caught it.

Because of that, many Pokemon GO players might have passed the chance of catching a Ditto when they ignored common spawns.

How to Catch a Ditto

Luckily, the list of Ditto's disguises has been updated. Here are the Pokemon you should watch out for in hopes that it turns into one of Pokemon GO's hardest catch:

  • Bidoof
  • Foongus
  • Gulpin
  • Hoppip
  • Hoothoot
  • Ledyba
  • Numel
  • Paras
  • Remoraid
  • Spinarak
  • Whismur

Once you catch a Ditto, you will see an "Oh?" instead of the usual "Gotcha!" then it should turn into the pink blob--then you should be able to complete the Special Field Research tasks you're stuck on.

Of course, using Incense and Lure Modules could help attract more Pokemon into your spot and increase your chances of getting the elusive Pokemon.

Pokemon GO Adds Mega Raids

In related news, Niantic Labs has added a new addition to the game in Mega Raids, which will feature Mega Pokemon evolutions: Mega Charizard (with versions X and Y), Mega Blastoise, and Mega Venusaur.

Joining Mega Raids allows you to acquire Mega Energy for that certain Pokemon, which you will need to Mega Evolve them, according to GameSpot.

The faster you beat the Mega Pokemon featured, the more Mega Energy you get.

You may also get the chance to capture the Pokemon it features, but do expect that you'll catch the common form instead of its Mega Evolution.

When it comes to difficulty, Mega Raids are like Legendary Boss Raids, which can be quite a challenge if you try to do it alone or you don't have the strongest Pokemon. But if you have a few best friends and choose the right Pokemon, you definitely stand a chance at winning.

Speaking of winning, here are the best counters you should choose for each Mega Pokemon featured:

Mega Venusaur

This Grass/Poison-type Pokemon is weak against Ice, Fire, Flying, and Psychic-type Pokemon. Your best choices are Charizard, Mewtwo, Ho-Oh, Rayquaza, Metagross, and Kyurem.

Mega Blastoise 

Mega Blastoise is a Water-type Pokemon, so it is weak against Electric and Grass-types. Some Pokemon you can use are Venusaur, Raikou, Tangrowth, Electivire, and Exeggutor.

Mega Charizard

There are two Mega Charizard versions: X and Y.

Mega Charizard Y is a Fire/Flying-type Pokemon, which means it's weak against Rock-types like Tyranitar or Rhyperior. However, you can also use Electric and Water-type Pokemon as they deal with super effective damages.

Meanwhile, Mega Charizard X is a Fire/Dragon-type, so you should use Ground, Rock, or other Dragon-type Pokemon, which still includes Rhyperior and Tyranitar, as well as Salamence, Dragonite, and Rayquaza.

Pokemon GO is available on iOS and Android devices.
