Ditto is particularly hard to find in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, as it can completely disguise itself as other Pokémon in the wild.
However, there are some Ditto locations to check in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. These areas have a higher chance of spawning Ditto and can really save you some time in the long run.
This is where you’ll find Ditto in Pokémon Scarlet and Violetas well as a growing list that Pokémon Ditto can disguise as.

Where to find Ditto in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Ditto is mainly found in the West Province (Area Two) and West Province (Area Three) parts of the map. The main issue here is that unlike other games, you won’t find Ditto in its standard form anywhere in the wild. Instead, Ditto disguises itself as other Pokémon, and there’s no way to tell which one.
Ditto will reveal itself on the first at bat, so you’ll need to look around these areas and challenge Pokémon until you find one. The tower next to Porto Marinada is the best place we’ve found to consistently find Ditto. You can see this location on the map below:
Go to this tower and challenge Pokémon. Murkrow and Grimer could definitely be Ditto in disguise, so start there. Eventually, Ditto will reveal himself. Make sure to catch them before accidentally knocking them down.
Our Pokémon Scarlet and Violet walkthrough can walk you through the entire game, including The First Day of School, Victory Road, Starfall Street, and Path of Legends.

Tips to catch Ditto
A helpful tip we found for catching Ditto in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is that if you haven’t seen Ditto in the game yet, the disguised Pokémon will have a ‘???’ will have. as his name. For example, the first Ditto we caught was disguised as a Murkrow. Murkrow was already registered with the Pokédex, but the name still showed as ‘???’. This meant it had to be Ditto. This only works for Pokémon you know you’ve already registered and for the first time you find Ditto.
