Published on 09/28/2023 at 7:45 p.m.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Purple, you may come across Ditto, the Morphing Pokémon from the first generation. However, this little prankster tends to hide, and you need to have a good eye to be able to distinguish it from other Pokémon! We explain how to find it, and how to make the most of your Ditto.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Purpleyou can capture up to 400 different species of Pokémon and save them to your Paldea Regional Pokédex. Among them, we find creatures from previous generations, such as Cerfrousse, Magnetonet Vivaldaimbut also Pokémon specially designed for the ninth generation, like Farigiraf, Headbulbet Zapetrel. With the arrival of the DLC The buried treasure of Zone Zero: the Turquoise Maskthe most determined trainers will also be able to set about completing the Septentria Regional Pokédexwhich groups 200 specimens. However, a Pokémon that only appears in the base game’s Pokédex is Metamorphthe Morphing Pokémon of the first generation.
In Pokémon Scarlet and Purplethis very special Pokémon can be caught to complete the Pokédex from the Paldea region. Of type Normalthis little purple chewing gum (or blue if you have one chromatic) is able to imitate the appearance of any object or creature. In play, he often opts for the appearance of your opponent. However, this strange Pokémon has an even more important use in the functioning of the reproductionand this since the second generation. We explain to you:
Pokémon Scarlet/Purple walkthrough summary
In the Paldea region of Pokémon Scarlet and Purpleyou will find Metamorph at the level of West zones n°2 and n°3particularly around blackberry mix.
However, the Metamorph do not appear as is. In fact, they copy the appearance of the surrounding Pokémon, so you will either have to start a fight with a Pokémon that is not acting as usual (for example, a Pomdepik on the ground rather than in a tree or a normally aggressive Pokémon that ignores you), or press ZL to target the different Pokémon in order to see the name that appears, so either Metamorpheither ??? if you’ve never caught one. Once in combat, the Metamorph will return to its normal appearance, and it will disappear if you flee.
In case you didn’t know, the reproductive system of Pokémon Scarlet and Purple differs slightly from previous games. In fact, it is no longer a question of depositing two compatible Pokémon in a boarding housebut rather to make a picnic with these two specimens on your team. Indeed, in normal times, a Pokémon Egg may appear in the basket at the end of the picnic table every 60 secondsprovided you have Pokémon that can breed together in your team. The rules to respect are as follows:
Reproduction requires a Female Pokémon and one Male Pokémon.If you use a Metamorphthe gender of the other Pokémon has no importance.The baby will always be of the species of Female or the Pokémon that breeds with a Metamorph.Pokémon must be compatiblethat is to say they must have at least a group of shared eggs.The Pokémon of the group Unknown cannot breed (Baby Pokémon, Legendary, Fabulous, etc.)
In other words, if you have a Metamorphyou can reproduce it with any other Pokémon (apart from of course the Pokémon in the group Unknown mentioned above). To do this, it is enough to have a team composed only of Metamorph a you Pokémon of your choice, then throw a picnic. At the end of 60 secondsyou will probably be able to find a Egg in the basket. Please note that if you wish to display Eggs more quickly, you can prepare a Sandwich with a Egg Aura to reveal an object or Egg in the basket every 10 seconds.
Also note that Metamorph can be used to obtain Chromatic or shiny Pokémon through reproduction. You can greatly increase your chances of obtaining Chromatic Pokémon Eggs using a Alien Shapeshifterthat is to say a Metamorph coming from another part of the world. To get one easily, you can use the redemption code following : 4448-4448. Make sure that the Pokémon offered meets your expectations before validating the exchange, and you can start farming them. Chromatic Pokémon !
