Ditto glitch

Twice in the last week, I’ve gotten the “Ditto glitch” that I’ve heard about on The Silph Road.  After I catch a Ditto, all the other catches I make from that point on have the Ditto transformation sound effect going off when I throw a ball to catch a different pokemon.  It scared me at first, wondering what the heck was going on, but it’s kind of cool, so I’ve embraced it and won’t close the game for awhile next time I come across it.  There’s also apparently a chance of seeing a tiny Ditto in the background when you catch a different pokemon, and some weird graphic glitches (which I’ve seen personally) where you see weird dark purple swatches where there should be grass on a subsequent catch.  Anybody else get this?

“Diddo, the ghost phantom”, good name for an opera

Will be looking for it now. And I guess I will have to turn on my sound. Sounds kinda cool. Zed, are you going to compose the opera? I’ll go when the Houston Symphony performs it.

That would be something, would it not? Although, might sound more like bunch of tomcats fighting than singing.

I recently started playing with sound.  It turns out that there are audio clues for when the gym defender you’re battling is about to use its charge move, and that helps me figure out to when dodge if I can’t see the yellow flash (in broad daylight) or if the visual clues are lagging.

I finally saw the ditto, although it had its back towards me

I caught a Venonat and that’s it displayed before showing me the Venonat.

Good job getting screen shots.  I’m never quick enough.

I have a spot were dittos always appear, so I was ready for the screen shots, however those were about the 10th or so try.

What is this? Just noticed it. Probably not the first time, tho.

Yup, that’s it.  Some kind of bug where they didn’t clear the Ditto backdrop/graphics/sounds/etc after it was caught, so you get this kind of thing on other nearby pokemon you’re catching.

I get the “Ditto Glitch” consistently, every time I catch a Ditto.  The Ditto sound plays on every Pokemon I catch after that until I restart Pokemon Go.  The graphics is also always altered, but is inconsistent in how messed up it is.
