Why does everyone want Dittos?

Hi!

Sorry for the stupid question - new to pokemon since gold - but why does everyone want to catch dittos? I read it in a lot of posts and just want to understand.

Thanks!

Dittos have different natures and can essentially be the perfect counter part to whichever pokemon you want to breed

E.g Kalos and Kanto starters can be easily bred. If you get a ditto to hold a everstone, their nature can be passed down, which is why many aim for dittos of different natures.

Friend Safari has Pokemon 2 perfect IVs. Friend Safari Ditto = easiest way to get 4-5, even 6 perfect IVs through breeding. Also Imposter Ditto, though that is usually not the main reason.

Breeding. If you breed with Dittos, you can get every breedable Pokemon with a Ditto. You can also breed certain IVs and Natures dependent on the item Ditto is holding.

Except for Ditto and most Legendaries.

There are things called IV values. They're unique and essentially either make a Pokemon strong or weaker in certain assets. They can never be changed.

In this game; there are Dittos that can breed with any Pokemon; and these Dittos have 2 FLAWLESS IVs. Breeding with certain items equipped lets you pass down Flawless IVs up to possibly having a new Pokemon with 4-6 Flawless IVs.

In short.

Ditto caught from the friend safari can be used to breed a poke with perfect IVs, which will mean that poke will have the best possible stats. It also allows that perfect IV poke to have the correct nature. This is why ditties are so popular. Here is the topic on it.

What is the point of Imposter ditto?
