10/Oct: PokemonGOHUB has confirmed the Ditto screenshots were fake.

Over the past 7 days, Niantic has opened Pokemon GO to a huge list of countries:

Which then brings us to the thought of possible Ditto appearance. As you are aware, currently there are 4 Pokemon which are region exclusive:

Farfetch’d – Asia
Kanghaskan – Australia
Mr. Mime – Europe
Tauros – Northern America

Since all four are continents, rumor has it that Ditto might be in Africa. Today PokemonGOhub.net received a player screenshot that he caught a Ditto in Edenvale and it’s now waiting for further confirmation.

Let’s see whether Ditto really is a Africa exclusive Pokemon as that is one of the oldest held theory behind it.
