A Pokémon fan has created unique paradox forms for Ditto, drawing inspiration from its beta evolution and holograms.
The paradox forms transform Ditto into a Normal/Rock type and Normal/Electric type, with a significant increase in size and weight.
Ditto's lack of evolutions or unique forms is likely due to its transformation ability, but it remains valuable to players as it is.
A creative Pokémon fan has depicted their vision of how Ditto's "Ancient" and "Future" paradox forms could look in fan art. The creation was inspired by an intriguing source and has caught the attention of other Pokémon players online.
Ditto has always been unique in the Pokémon series due to its ability to copy and transform into any other Pokémon. Over time, it may have become even more unusual as it still lacks evolutions. Since Ditto's primary purpose in the games is to transform into other pocket monsters and is often used for breeding, it is likely not at the top of the list for Pokémon that will receive new paradox forms in the near future. However, Pokémon fans can always fill in the gaps with a little creativity and imagination.
That's what Reddit user HertzBurst did when they designed paradox forms for Ditto and shared them with the world. Ditto received an ancient paradox form called "Mimic Spike" and a future form called "Iron Replica." Both forms transform Ditto into a Normal/Rock type and Normal/Electric type, respectively. Both forms significantly increase Ditto's size, with its future paradox form being based on a hologram and gaining additional height and substantial weight. However, the ancient form is the most surprising, as it stands over four feet tall and weighs nearly 700 pounds, compared to the standard Ditto.
The ancient paradox form of Ditto looks particularly eerie, with an open mouth containing sharp teeth and a crown of spikes on its head. HertzBurst drew inspiration from the beta Pokémon from Pokémon Gold and Silver, which became publicly known after a data leak of the Space World 1997 Demo. At one point, Ditto was supposed to have a unique evolution that looked quite similar to Mimic Spike, but with fewer spikes and googly eyes instead of the angry red eyes that this fan-made paradox form has. The unsettling update to the beta evolution has been perceived by fans as rather disturbing.
Ditto likely hasn't received evolutions or particularly unique forms due to its transformative nature. Developers would need to find something that could serve as an evolution or paradox form for Ditto, differentiating it in some way from a regular Ditto without sacrificing its core characteristic. It remains to be seen if Ditto will ever receive a significant update in a future Pokémon game, but regardless, the Pokémon has proven its significance to players from generation to generation just as it is.
