How can you tell?

I was guessing based on the CP gauge and candy needed to power up, but it’s actually level 29 (which you can find out through IV calculators like at gamepress.com)

Holy moles! That’s the biggest one I’ve ever seen. Amazing. One of the hardest catches in the game. Congrats. Did it come from a fish? If so, were you happy and bummed at the same time? I mean can you imagine if it had been a shiny? Talk about the highs and lows.

Came from a Hoothoot, and I have snagged at least a billion of those so far, so no loss there. It was a just a routine catch for dust and XP. Getting a ditto is still somewhat novel, so it’s slightly better than a weaksauce mon in that regard. But when the lady in red said words like “amazing,” “strongest,” “impressive,” “impressive” and “blows me away,” all you can do is put on your pimp suit and strut a little bit.

If it was a shiny, I probably would have said a few choice words, then chosen to say a few more, but my shiny fish is still out there. Probably in French Guyana, but thems the breaks.

Lol. Yeah. My typical reaction to a ditto catch is Oh…..Cool. Then time to move on with my life. A 100 IV one though ranks as an epic moment. Until I caught the Heracross in Victoria, my 100 IV Ditto catch was my greatest catch moment in the game. And there is nothing quite like the progression of determining the strength of your mon. For Heracross, I had caught a CP 2089 that needed 4000 stardust to power up. So i figured it was like a level 26 or 27. So when I clicked on my second one and saw it was CP 2505, I knew it had to be close to level 30 like your Ditto. Once I caught it, I could immediately verify this. And did. Then I saw the moveset which was the best offensive and exactly the one I wanted. My happiness was complete. Or so I thought. I go to check it’s IV and Bam…..he’s somewhere between 82 and 100. As I continue, I find that he is most likely in the 90’s, with 96 being the highest he could be at that point. And then I find out 96 is exactly what he is. Unbelievable. Lord knows I could go deeper into why this was as unlikely as it was. But I think most everybody here gets it. I’m not sure I could ever make a catch whose odds were as low as they were at the time, considering I only expected to be there for 3 to 4 hours. I mean, being someone who overthinks things, if I had done anything differently that morning, I most likely would have missed it. Guess it was destiny.
Maybe that’s what you should call your Ditto? Destiny. It’s just crazy. I hope you enjoyed your catch as much as I enjoyed mine.
