Pokémon GO has been some new additions in both Ditto and the expansion of the Nearby feature. Ditto can now be found in the wild by catching any Pokémon. After catching a Pokémon, sometimes an “Oh?” prompt will appear indicating that the Pokémon caught was actually a Ditto in disguise.
The Nearby feature has also been widely expanded across the world. Previous only accessible in San Francisco, the Nearby feature allows players to see which Pokémon are currently near the closest PokéStop. These are the areas that now have access to this feature:
- United States of America: All states west of the Mississippi River (except Hawaii and Alaska)
- Canada: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the western half of Ontario.
- Australia: All states and territories
If datamined information turns out to be correct, we may see the addition of Shiny Pokémon in the future as well.
