Pokemon Go April fools 2022: Bizarre Ditto event and special rewards revealed

POKEMON Go is going crazy for Ditto in a wacky event to mark April Fools Day.

The purple blob is part of a special event for a limited time, so don't wait around.

April Fools’ 2-Oh?-22 runs until midnight, with loads of Ditto-related quests and extras in tow.

As makers Niantic explain: "Professor Willow has some new Special Research for Trainers to help out with.

"At least…we think he does. Is that actually Professor Willow?

"Are you actually one of his trusted Trainers? We can’t tell what is and isn’t Ditto anymore."

Ditto is known for being pretty elusive because of its unique ability to disguise itself as other creatures.

In fact, it's only real move is Transform, allowing it to copy the form and abilities of whoever it opposes.

It's a lot harder to catch Ditto in Pokemon Go because it always battles in its disguise.

So you only really find one by chance once you've caught the creature in its fake form and it decides to reveal itself after.
