Pokémon GO was a smash hit when it first came out, breaking all sorts of concurrent player records for the Pokémon franchise all over the world!
As is with every Pokémon game, players are tasked with searching for Pokémon to capture and collect, using them to battle other Pokémon, be it against the AI or against other players. The difference with Pokémon GO is that it utilizes the player’s phone GPS to find and capture Pokémon!
The game has been expanding its roster since its humble release with the original 151 Pokémon all the way to modern times. Pokémon got so popular that the original roster kept expanding till we got to eight whole generations of Pokémon!
Today we will be talking about one of the events in the game, namely the April Fools event and what comes along with it.
April Fools Day Event
Niantic’s celebration of April Fools in Pokemon GO has become somewhat of a yearly tradition. For this year, April Fools Day 2022, a Special Research quest was released in accordance with the April Fools Day tradition.
One of these Special Research tasks in the questline requires players to ‘Catch 3 of the Transform Pokemon’ without any further explanation. So what are these ‘Transform Pokemon,’ you ask?
The Pokedex tells us that the ‘Transform Pokemon’ is the shape-shifting Pokemon, Ditto. The reason for this is obvious, because it can transform into any other Pokemon of its choosing.
However, catching it is no easy task, because Ditto will only appear on the Pokemon Go map disguised as a different Pokemon. So there is no way to tell that the Pokemon is a Ditto until players have captured it. To make it easier, this is a list of Pokemon that Ditto could be:
There is no guarantee that Ditto could be any of these Pokemon either, but at least now players know what to look out for! Good luck and happy hunting!
