Pokemon Go Ditto disguises list 2021: how to catch a Ditto & understanding Ditto spawns

One of the most elusive Pokemon remains the shape shifting critter Ditto – and in Pokemon Go, that can lead to some significant frustration.Ditto is an absolutely key Pokemon in Pokemon Go, and that’s despite it not being the sort of Pokemon that could ever rank on the best Pokemon Tier lists – and its unpredictable nature means it isn’t even really very useful for battle. It also can’t be obtained in the usual methods – it can’t be hatched from eggs, and is rarely a field research quest reward. It’s a pain. Despite this, Ditto is a Pokemon that…

Pokemon Go Wurmple Evolution: how to evolve Wurmple into Silcoon, Cascoon, Beautifly and Dustox

In the world of Pokemon, the vast majority of creatures evolve in the same way. This varies from game to game, but in Pokemon Go this usually means feeding a certain amount of candy. A handful of Pokemon are different, however – and such is the case for Wurmple.Wurmple isn’t the most exciting of Pokemon – it’s a lowly bug-type Pokemon added in the third generation, a little spiky grub that eventually enters a cocoon form and then becomes something else entirely. However, Wurmple is fairly unique in that you never quite know what you’re going to get when you…

Xbox Game Pass on phone can give the Switch a run for its money – in the right conditions

Xbox Game Pass works a treat on mobile – and with the Razer Kishi, the experience feels a lot like playing a Nintendo Switch in handheld mode – but a little bit better.Just a month ago, I wrote about how “playing Xbox Game Pass through xCloud feels like a next-generation experience” – and since then, game pass on mobile has become a regular staple of my video game diet. I’ve done a few more play-throughs of Streets of Rage 4, played a shed load of Halo, and rekindled a love for Forza Horizon 4 while finally getting around to digging…
