Shiny Ditto was a massive part of Pokemon Go’s Kanto Tour. This guide will show players how to find and capture their very own. For starters, the Kanto Tour event was one of the most significant events to happen in the game. It was a premium event where players could buy tickets for Special Research Tasks and the chance to encounter Shiny Pokemon of all 151 Pokemon.
Ditto is known in both the mainline Pokemon games and Pokemon GO for its ability to transform into any Pokemon it encounters. Unfortunately, this can make it hard to find Ditto in the wild because it usually appears as a different Pokemon entirely.
Luckily for players that have purchased either a Red Ticket or Green Ticket for the Pokemon GO Tour: Kanto event, there is a way to get a guaranteed Ditto. This Ditto is also no ordinary one, with players getting to opportunity to encounter Ditto’s newly introduced shiny form.
Players who picked up the Kanto Tour pass will be given Special Research tasks that will provide them with a guaranteed Shiny Ditto upon completion. The issue here is that players who missed out on the event can no longer pick up the pass.
There are eight steps for the event and special research tasks with different rewards for completing each step. For example, to get an encounter with a shiny Ditto, players will need to reach and complete the seventh step of the task. The tasks in this step require players to catch 30 Pokemon, catch 15 different species of Pokemon and transfer 20 Pokemon. Alongside the shiny Ditto encounter, players will also get a lure module and a Lucky Egg for completing the seventh step.
Note:some rewards will vary depending on the type of task selected (Red or Green).

Before players can even think of finding a Shiny Ditto, they will need to try and find a normal Ditto first. In Pokemon Go, Ditto will only appear if the player captures one of these Pokemon.
Once it is captured, it has the chance of transforming into a Ditto. Although (and we cannot stretch this enough), finding a Shiny version of Ditto might be one of the most challenging Pokemon to find in the game. Overall, it is up to luck to find a normal Ditto, let alone a Shiny one. The best thing to do would be to continue capturing these Pokemon when encountering them in the wild. Players missed out if they didn’t participate in the Kanto Tour event. Maybe the game will host an event in the future for another chance to find a guaranteed Shiny Ditto.
