Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Something extra needed to catch ditto Pokemon X/Y?

Alright, so I know Ditto is supposedly found in the Pokemon Village in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. However, I have trawled through the Pokemon village for several hours and encountered hundreds of Pokemon, none of which have been Ditto. I have tried the yellow and purple flower patches, day and night. I have read online that Ditto is supposed to be Common in the yellow flowers, with Gothoritta, Amoongus and Zoroark are uncommon, and Noctowl as rare. In my experience of running through just the Yellow grass, I ran into about 20 Noctowl, 40 Gothorittas, 20 Zoroarks and 20 Amoongus in the first hour.
On my third day of hunting for one, is there something I am missing here? Am I supposed to do something to get Ditto to appear in the Pokemon village? If not, why would it not be appearing for me?
I have a completely legitimate game copy, the only thing I can think of is that I haven't connected my 3DS to the Internet yet for various reasons. Is this required to get a Ditto, or is it just that the RNG seriously hates me?

No. Nothing extra is needed to catch Ditto at the Pokémon Village. I guess you have just been having bad luck.

In the Pokémon Village you have the best chance of finding Ditto if you search in the Yellow Flowers rather than the Purple Flowers.

If you are having trouble finding a Ditto in the Pokémon Village trying finding it in the Normal Type Friend Safari. You never know you might get lucky this time and get one with it's Hidden Ability Imposter since there is a small chance you can get Pokémon with their Hidden Abilities there.

Hope I helped :)

Alright, thanks. I'll keep searching. Not the first time the RNGs had a grudge against me.
When I finally get around to linking my 3DS to the Internet I'll try the friend safari too.
Thanks for the help.
No problem, glad I could help :)
