Question The perfect ditto.

So I'm sure everyone has heard of the perfect ditto. If you haven't, here is what a perfect ditto is:

Basically, a ditto with 6 perfect IVs (5 isn't perfect but its pretty darn good too).
While some of us are on the quest of finding one, others have no idea what it is, and some lucky ones already own one.

I'm posting this here not only because I'm hoping one of you has one and is willing to trade it but also because I want to hear what some of you are doing to get your hands on one.

Are you looking in the safari? GTS? the internet?
Or maybe you have your own way of making ditto a perfect pokemon without its IVs being maxed out.

I want the 6IV (or 5) ditto for breeding purposes.

I'll ask my friend if he has any. He's pretty big into breeding and battling so he just might. I'm not claiming he'll have a perfect one but from all the games he has and hours he put into it, he might have something close.

Next to impossible, since we it's 3 perfect IVs minimum and the rest are quite random to get.
You'll literaly need the older gens to get one. As they can be only generated with special software.

Friend Safari is 2 perfect IVs minimum. I have gotten 2 so far with 3 31 IVs. Getting 6, or even 5, would take luck and patience.

If I had to estimate, I'd say I've caught around 50-60 Ditto from the Friend Safari in an attempt to obtain a Ditto of every Nature and the closest I have is a Ditto with 4 perfect IVs and a handful of ones with 3. Getting one with all 6 would be great, but I don't think that's something I'm going to actively work towards. xD

Wanna try?
Ditto get 2 or 3 IVS are maxed in safari because the game locks it down with an algorithm. The other 3 are completely random. It makes 4 IVs possible to get, and that is really lucky.
Do u honestly wanna try for a 6 IV ditto?
If so, then good luck man. You'll need it. The odds of having one is literaly slim to none.

Lets ignore using friend safari to get 3 stats perfect for a bit. I'll explain the odds of just finding a Pokemon randomly having 3 perfect stats. For 3 stats randomly to be 31, you have a 1/31 chance for each stat separately. 1/31 is about a 3% chance so you have a 3% chance of having a random IV being perfect. Alright that's pretty low but (if you're patient) doable.

Now if you randomly have 2 stats be 31, that's 1/31 x 1/31 which comes out to be 0.001 which is 0.1% (100 times more likely than finding a shiny). Now if you want 3 stats to randomly be 31, that's 1/31 x 1/31 x 1/31 which is a pathetic 0.0000356, or just higher than 3 thousandths of a percent.


To put this in perspective, the odds of finding a shiny randomly is 1/8192 which is only about 0.01% of a chance (or one hundredth of a percent). You literally have a ten times greater chance of finding a shiny ditto than you do of randomly finding one with 3 perfect IVs straight from the get go.

What? I never said anything about trying. I said it would be really hard to get just 5 perfect IVs. In order to get them, you do need luck and patience. Luck to get the stats because of the extremely small chance of getting the 5 perfect IVs, and patience because it is going to take a LONG, LONG time. I am never going to try to get a perfect Ditto. It is faster to breed with multiple imperfect Dittos than finding a perfect one.

I find it funny when other people are looking to trade for a perfect Ditto. They offer crap like starters, legendaries, random HA Pokemon, etc. They don't even realize that their stuff is worthless compared to a perfect Ditto.

Close but no cigar. If u want perfect dittos, your best bet is after the bank.

It does seem like its possible to get a near perfect ditto from the safari. I did catch a 5 stat togetic from there. It was probably really lucky on my side though.

In all honesty, actively searching for more than three IVs is a waste of time. For starters, the chances of even encountering that are too low, and secondly you can still breed genderless Pokemon with desired IVs by simply switching Dittos and offspring around. It should not take that long to obtain four good IVs for your Rotom, Beldum, or whatever requires Ditto.
