So, after a long weekend of breeding Torchic, I decided that I’d work on another project left incomplete since HG/SS: obtaining a complete set of breeding Ditto. As you’re likely aware, Ditto have the ability to breed with just about any Pokemon in the game, except themselves and Undiscovered egg group Pokemon, but, because they can, they have the ability to breed their natures into Pokemon, making the breeding process much easier. I had just about all of the 20 “significant” Ditto from Gen 4, was just missing Gentle, Lax, Naive, Naughty, and Sassy. None of those natures are really as popular as Timid, Jolly, Adamant or Modest, for example, but it’s nice to be able to have some flexability to get the nature that fits the Pokemon you want. In case you’re wondering, Ditto have a 15% encounter rate in the Giant Chasm Crater. Just bring something other than a Volcarona when you try to catch them: the Volcarona I worked with and the wild Ditto ultimately copied turned into a rather painful and drawn-out process of capturing them. I managed to get 4 out of 5, just missing Naughty now. Anyway, just remember that in 5th Gen, Ditto have a 15% wild encounter rate in the Giant Chasm Crater, and that catching one of each of the 20 significant natures will help the breeding process immensely.
