Pokemon Go players are still facing difficulties in completing the Special Research titled ‘A Mythical Discovery’. Introduced in 2018, this research allows players to catch the legendary Pokemon, Mew. However, the fifth step of this research requires players to catch Ditto, which has proven to be a challenge for many.
Ditto, known for its ability to transform into other Pokemon, is notoriously difficult to catch in Pokemon Go. It often disguises itself as common Pokemon, such as Corphish, Diglett, Grimer, Litleo, Roggenrola, Snubbull, Starly, and Tympole. This makes it tricky for players to identify and catch Ditto, as they may choose to ignore or skip over these Pokemon, reducing their chances of encountering a Ditto.
Despite its introduction five years ago, players are still voicing their frustration about not being able to catch Ditto for ‘A Mythical Discovery’ Special Research. Some players claim to have caught Ditto before starting the research, but have struggled to find another one since then. Online forums like Reddit have become a platform for players to share their experiences and discuss strategies for catching Ditto.
However, catching Ditto is not the only challenge in ‘A Mythical Discovery’ research. In later steps, players are required to evolve a Magikarp, which demands 400 candies. This can be a daunting task due to the rarity of Magikarp spawns and the high candy requirement for evolving it into a powerful Gyarados.
To successfully complete ‘A Mythical Discovery’ Special Research in Pokemon Go, players need patience, perseverance, and a bit of luck in encountering and catching Ditto. Despite the difficulties, many players still strive to complete this research and catch the legendary Pokemon, Mew.
